    I emailed the guy who took the picture and this is what he said:

    He's gonna go back and snap the full thing this week-end probably.

    There's not enough awesome to describe that. That's going to look fantastic when finished.

    So it's not the giant Optimus Prime head that gives it away, it's the "FO"...

    That's already better than any poster we got for the first film. Looking forward to seeing it when it's finished! :thumbs2:

    Well, if you think about it in realistic terms, it'd be like a surgeon going about his day, everyday, forever, wearing a surgical facemask.

    Plus Prime activates the guard during battle (which I think is a neat idea, and I'm glad they included it on Animated Prime.)

    It was a little odd at first seeing Prime without the guard up, and I do prefer it overall, especially on the toy, but it makes sense that he wouldn't have it up all the time.

    Unless he needed it like Snake Eyes in G.i. Joe Resolute.

    Nah i meant for the promo material, last time around all the poster or artwork with him was with mouth piece. Even the posters for ROTF so far are with it, including the game covers, all except this one.

    What about the banners that were draped over a skyscraper in LA for the last film? I'm sure those must be taller than the MGM Grand. (It is the Grand, isn't it? I can't recall at the moment.)

    It's the Luxor. And for as big as the skyscraper banner for the first movie was, this one is definitely bigger, not to mention being clearly visible from every plane taking off & landing in Vegas. I can't even begin to imagine how much this thing must be costing them. Wow. I will say, however, that I liked the colors & design style of the TF1 skyscraper banner better.

    I have a feeling this thread hasn't been frontpaged or gotten more of a reaction because of its misleading title. Maybe a mod here could revise the title to read something more akin to Luxor Hotel In Vegas Covered In ROTF Poster.

    That's Luxor, awesome hotel in Vegas. Shoots a light beam from the top of the pyramid which can be seen from space. I've always wanted to slide down the sides of it, that would be fun. I don't think this is a TF ROTF poster though, more than likely its for something else.

    FYI (and O/T) ,those 'unmarked' Boeing 737's in the foreground...those are the 'JANET' flights that ferry workers to/from places such as Tonopah Test Range, Groom Lake, and other testing sites/ranges.
