    BEWARE, MIGHT BE A SPOILER IF TRUE


    okay, so, yesterday i was disscussing with my english teacher, big fan of tfs, why does prime (and many other autobots, except bb) have lips, and we came out with this:

    our idea:
    maybe the autobots are trying to "appeal" the human characters, because they know that we would freak out if we saw a totally alien face, so they try to humanize their features to mimic our expressions.

    my individual idea:
    maybe, the quintenssons (original creators of the transformers and other robot races.) saw that we humans were amazing, we have free will, something a robot doesnt have.
    so, in their eternal game of being God, they tried to mimic us, by making the first "sentient" robots, capable of feeling (like prime's love for elita one, or his friendship with ironhide.), to emote, thats why faces, to express emotion.
    (oh, and then the robots begin to wonder about freedom, and rebel against the quintensson slavery)

    Your Quintesson theory may also explain why they had earthen car parts back in Cybertron - they traveled to Earth's future to copy the human "design" and also recorded information of the environment - vehicles, machines, buildings.

    Methinks you people are thinking too hard XD

    They just have human characteristics because the audience couldn't relate to them or understand anything about them otherwise

    I dont think that "the quintassons" have anything to do with the live action movie... I do think that the autobots tried to mimic human features though....

    As for the cartoons, maybe the quintassons did infact "copy" humans/earth vehicles (expeculation)...

    I think its because the original G1 cartoon designers had a limited budget and didn't spend too much on other designs. It was a cartoon designed to sell the TOYS, which were Earthen vehicles to begin with, and they never put that much effort into the Cybertron thing.

    Hey its just a thought.

    Well, while i was thinking about the Faceplate/Lips-controversion, i came to one conclusion:
    G1-Prime has Lips too!

    And before you complain, here's the reason:

    When he speeks, his Faceplate is moving, which means, that he has an Underjaw, having an Underjaw has to have a reason too.
    And the only reason i get to have an underjaw, is that he must have a Mouth, tough i have never seen Prime eating an Energin-Stick, like HotRod and Cup offered to the sharkticons in the movie.

    So it's just, that he didn't redtracted the Faceplate during the time he was seen in the Series and the movie, but as long as it moves, there should always be something like a Mouth behind it.

    It's because (now follow me here).

    One or more people involved in making this movie wanted Prime to have lips.

    No more, no less.

    Nice try, but why doesn't Ratchet have a human face then, or Bumblebee?

    And I refuse to believe that the Decepticons wouldn't think of gaining Human's trust to abuse it. I mean, isn't that why Barricade is a police car?
