    There is hope!

    From Harry Knowles' report upon seeing footage from the movie over at aintitcool.com.

    "The scene played out fun. I'm not a big fan of the Optimus mouth animation, I feel it distracts from the eyes - but this is actually a discussion that production is currently having."

    Interesting that there is still time to change it. Maybe the long face look will be ditched?

    I highly doubt they'll change the designs for the TFs... July 4 is going to be here before you know it.

    I'm actually interested to see how they animate his mouth. They've tried to stick so close to "realism", I wonder how the mouth parts and lips will move and such, if that makes sense. I'd rather not have his shield open AT ALL, but it's the least of my b****ings. :p

    These sound like the same scenes they showed last month.

    This is the better one, or at least the more exciting one imo :)  So many neat details, like Blackouts cycling of weapons, Scorponoks face shields..etc.

    This movie is going to be a robot fans dream.

    The smalles changes in post production can make the biggest differences in the final product. I'm sure they have plenty of time to tweak and reanimate prime's mouth, or possibly even remove it completely and stick with the mask full time. Though i doubt the latter will happen the former is almost gaurenteed.

    the added scene involves the troops on their way back from a mission, and the dialogue that ensues on the helicopter. The removed scene from last month is the one with the romantic lookout.

    Seeing how they are still working on the CG on all the scenes I would not doubt that they can change it very quickly. I'm sure they've developed numerous versions of his mouth that they can change out with ease.

    I think it would be worth going to this movie just for that first scene alone; it sounds so friggin' awesome!

    "Skorponok burrows again, this time coming up behind Zack Ward and piercing him straight through, then dragging him down beneath the sand."
    Guess this might have gotten that initial "R" rating, after all. Wouldn't be surprised if some of the raters thought that would be too extreme...

    Then there's the whole "Blackout squishing/incinerating soldiers" bit. There might not be any or little blood, but it IS quite graphic.

    Sorry, I was reading this post this morning... and I don't think very straight in the morning. Not a morning person, not now not ever. So I guess they do have some time to correct things.

    I would much prefer ops to have a Beast wars/Cybertron style mouth. Keeps with the faceplate aesthetic more.

    While having a mouth wouldn't be detrimental, I would much prefer if Optimus just had the faceplate. In almost every pic we've seen of him he's got the faceplate on, so hopefully he'll have it that way for most, if not all, of the movie.
