    Something tells me that was done on purpose, it just seems to well done, I mean most symbols don't even look that good yet here the decepticon symbol is so clean.

    Shattered Glass Animated Bug Bite?

    Seriously, I missed that. Guess it was a simple case of importing the wrong graphic file.

    I know a way to solve such problem!

    FROM NOW AND ON ALL SYMBOLS MUST BE HAND-DRAWN!

    They actualy draw they sometimes, dunno why the whole draw/paste change.

    I noticed and commented in the rise of the constructicons discussion thread.

    I son't think it was done on purpose so it leaves the only option being wrong image import.

    Maybe it's a homage to G1's animation errors.

    :lol  Or it could be homage to the Shattered Glass BotCon dealies. I certainly wouldn't put it past them.

    I think it's an animator having a laugh myself, why else would you draw such an accurate looking sigil that's on screen for a spilt second. I certaily didn't see it the first time.

    While it is Cartoon Network animation, it's still animated overseas where those doing the animation may not catch their own mistakes, etc. Especially if they're on a tight time-frame.

    I'd call it a mistake.
