    Anyone have any ideas?

    I think it's the markings of the separatist deceptions but then I saw that Megatron also had these odd markings in the trailer.

    Does the Fallen have something to do with them?

    They're not tattoos. He carved them into his own armor with his claws. Supposed to make him look like ancient decepticons.

    If you look at the first movie, both Prime and Megatron had Allspark/Cyberglyphics inspired drawings somewhere on their body (both on their helmet, I believe). The blue Arcee motor has some on her alt mode as well..

    I'm pretty sure these are part of their Cybertronian Allspark-inspired heritage. Starscream took it to the next level and is all covered with them. He probably seems himself as being 'better' than other Cybertronians, maybe even half-divine. He has a calling, a goal, a full devotion even.

    Putting it that way makes more sense and makes him seem like the Starscream we know and love.

    Movie Starscream, at least in the comics, is not too bad a guy. He believes whatever he does is for the good of their race, but he's misguided, thinking the means justify the ends and all that. He hates Megatron and Prime for thinking of only their own petty factional concerns, but does not seem to recognise he has become that which he hates himself.

    Wait..........Starscream went Joker level crazy? Sort of makes me want the Ramjet repaint of the first mold now, so I can add some green, purple, and red paint apps to him.

    I guess that's what Starscream is doing when he's hunched over Sam in the trailer; he's telling him the "Scar story."
