    Just looking at the Hi-Def trailer images and noticed this. I know almost everyone things that it's Megatron that clocks Prime in the mask, but look at this comparison of the Fallen's face and the reflection in Prime's helmet right before he gets hit.

    Blurry, but possible. Is the Fallen the one that beats down Optimus?

    The reflection looks like a Gundam.

    It's clearly a chunk taken out of his helmet

    I think it's just a dent, who knows though. LOL, I could see this ending up like the "I can see venom in spiderman's eye!" discussion on the SM3 poster that people had on various forums

    No. It's Megatron. I'd bet my ridiculous government salary, which I wish I got.

    Who ever it is. Good work by the CG people to include such detail.

    Yep Im agreeing with its just a chunk. Even if it was a reflection it appears the potential "reflection" is standing upright. Megatron/Fallen (whoever) at that stage is kicking/punching the penis out of Optimus, would not be in an upright standing position when unleashing karate kid moves. Good attention to detail but gonna have to disagree on that one.

    I still think it's Megatron that beats him up, even if that is the reflection of the bot doing it. It's just too hard to go off of atm. We'll just have to wait and see.

    If you watch that part in slow-mo or frame by frame you can tell that it is just a dent on his helmet.

    I just went back and watched that bit of the trailer frame-by-frame in HD: it's just a dent. The curved, dark area overlapping it is a reflection of something, but the diamond shaped thing is a dent. Just move the frame forward a few notches to prove it; the rest of the reflection moves in perspective with Optimus's head position, but the dent stays in the same place.

    It's a cool theory and a good spot, but unfortunately it's not right. :)

    Indeed. Allow me to further disprove the Fallen theory by pointing you in the direction of my previous detective work:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-movie-discussion/217466-megatron-2.html#post3274862

    To add to the argument, if you look at the rust along the arrow-head shaped metal, you can see that it's also the exact same in both shots, so I'd go so as to say that it's even Megatron's left foot kicking him in the face, perhaps from lying on his back or something, who knows.

    Just to mess with people's heads, if Megatron does perhaps only show up in a dream by Sam, this could also be part of the dream. Maybe Sam is reliving the fight between Prime and Megatron from the first movie and his mind is just adding this punch. We all know how trailers like to trick us sometimes by showing things out of context. :)

    It looks a lot like megatron's foot, my guess is Megatron gave Prime a nice Boot-2-the-head.
