    I just been noticing how they changed the look of the the Decepticon Symbol.

    Just look at the Eyes, and the shape.

    They did the same to the Autobot symbol, but it's less noticeable. Personally I like the modern and evil feel of the insignias. Very slick looking.

    I dig the modern versions. The 'con symbol looks a lot more evil and sinister.

    I honestly didn't notice a difference until now...

    Bad Transfan! BAD!

    I guess that means I don't really have a preference. ^_^

    I thought I was the only one. I mean yeah when you put 'em side by side it's noticeable. But using my mind's eye I never noticed

    The differences are pretty minor... I don't really mind either way.

    But I really don't find the movie ones to be any more "modern" or "evil". If anything, the proportions of the new Con symbol seems to be less abstract, which makes it seem less modern to my eyes. "Evil" is pretty subjective in this case. I like the old simple eyes better.

    Overall, I'm happy that the symbols were only changed this much. This is one of those classic elements that I'm glad to see they kept for the movie.

    Am I that much of a freak that I immediately spotted the difference the very first time I saw the insignias?

    Good find, and good way to point it out with those graphics. I'm fine with it.

    Hmm... I noticed them earlier, but I thought that this had already been discussed when we first saw the images of the new insignias. Personally, I do like the new look (sense to me they look more evil than the originals), however, I have to echo the sentiments of others that I'm glade they haven't changed too much. They are kind of a "classic" element of Transformers that have remained largely unchanged throughout the history of the line. Sure, they have been stylized slightly during G2 and completely new ones were created for new factions (Maximals, Predacons & Vehicons) however, the Autobots and Decepticons symbols have remained largely unchanged and I'm happy to see that the changes made for the movie are minor at best.

    Alright all you eagle eyes: is the symbol on the Rock Lord Starscream the new or original version? I can't tell.

    Same here. That and the little center thing and how it dips lower than the classic one.
