    Maybe those plates around the head are normally closed but Megatron can open them to reveal his face while he talks to Optimus during a fight. You know how Hollywood loves to unmask people.

    That's not a head, you muppet. That's the left-hand tread cover; look at the one on the right-hand front tread and you can see how it matches up.

    It's his head.

    Granted, I don't mind it so much. Especially since it DOES look like those flaps on either side of it can close to cover it.

    Ah, I hadn't seen those pics yet (I came straight to the board after a two-day absence), and I was just looking at the pic Newguy posted - and even after you've posted those other two pics, I still can't see the face on the first one. Especially not "sitting out almost as far as the cannon". All I could see was what might be interpreted as a head if you looked at it wrong.

    Based on the other pics, yeah, exposed faces = no need.

    No, this above post is equiv to bitching. Bitching about the fact someone can find something ugly but others feel to dog them out for it. I'm zero the fan of the current robot mode to go with this vehicle, but I don't hate the tank. The tank looks great, the bot mode crap, and if there's no fix to the head showing in tank mode its dumb. Not hating on a bit of shit design just because its something they came up with for a Bay film, but because its a shit design. Rolling eyes at anyone for disliking not even a full design but a single aspect as though its some Bay-ranting hater-whine is bitching.

    I think the eye-rolling was aimed at the OP for starting a thread about this particular aspect of Meg's design, when it's already being discussed in the main thread.

    Here's a question Why is he a Cybertronian tank?

    He's one earth why doesn't he scan an earth tank?

    Ya know his head/face was kinda visible in his 1st movie alt mode. I'm pretty sure because it's still a cybertronian type design that it could be explained that alt modes were originally just battle modes not necessarily for tranportation purposes or whatever...they still needed to see, blah blah blah....anyways..just thought I'd throw that out there.

    I think this tank mode looks a hell of a lot better than the last movie cybertronian jet junk...all in all though I think movie Megs is the Ultimate FAIL.

    Meg is too cool to try to hide, he just doesn't care about having a disguise.

    ya and how did that turn out for him in the first movie. Oh ya he was made into cybertronian swiss cheese. now imagine if he was out in the open.

    While I ll admit the Tank is cool looking that should have been the alt mode in the first movie. This not adapting to an earth mode thing is just way to machismo in the face of the facts/believablity and never mind Fans have been clamoring for it. An earth mode is way over due.

    With any luck it's something that can close up because the face bit is really the only thing I don't like about the tank mode. The rest of the tank is just pure win like Megatron had been playing Warhammer 40,000 and wanted something that looked a bit Chaos Space Marine.
