    after watching the movie and discussing it with a few friends, Ironhide's face resembles to me the face of a teddy bear or even Silverbolt.

    what do any of their faces (Autobot or Decepticon) resemble to you?

    Ironhide has a bull-like face, especially with the faceplate on

    The rest - I don't know, ugly :(

    Only two things really leapt out at me.

    One is that some kind of shield appears on the faces of the Autobots (well, I only saw Prime and Bumblebee do this) in combat situations.

    The second is that Megatron has teeth. :confused: 

    Why?

    Transformers exist on a diet of liquid fuel. They don't need to chew their nutrients.

    Who says they feed on liquid fuel?
    New movie new rules.

    Megs has teeth because he is a badass engine of demonic destruction, & can & will tear things to shreds with his fangs!

    For a creature who despises everything mankind stands for, the Megatron design sure goes to great lengths to emulate us. The fact that he's even bipedal should be a grand insult to him. ;p

    I wasn't paying that close attention to all of them, but it seems Megatron is the only one with teeth.

    Why should he have them and no-one else does?

    Usually, the bipedal humanoid form is the one most suited for general purpose tasks. Evolution works the same no matter where you go (unless you mutate).

    And they seem to have gone this way with Frenzy, he has four hands (maybe more) to aid hacking computers.

    I know this isn't anything new, but I thought (and after seeing the movie, I still think) that Starscream's face looks like an updated Waspinator face.

    Actually, Prime had teeth! No kidding! In the scene where he finally tells Sam to push the AllSpark into his chest, his teeth "move" from right to left...or at least that's what I saw! Can anyone confirm that? And oh, Prime's face reminds me of BW's Dinobot!

    Wow ... I mean ... wow. He has teeth because it is a freaking movie. He has teeth because it is a good way to symbolize his monstrous nature and that he is evil. With his teeth there is no question he is evil and conveys terror. Without his teeth it does not have the same effect.

    You are looking too much into the movie.

    Prime - Gladiator look. His helmet and nose resembles gladiator helmet and nose bridge.

    Ratchet - Wise old man with the things on the side of his face to resemble old man jaw jowls.

    Ironhide - Face of a bull. It has a very tough look to it.

    Bumblebee - Just a cutsie face?


    The designs of their faces are actually ingenious because they convey aspects of their personality and name very well. The old G1 faces conveyed absolutely nothing and would be extremely lame in this movie.

    Bonecrusher looks hairy.

    I think all their faces are cool! Some are classic, whereas others are cool and stylized! New stuff FTW! Starscreams head is my favorite next to Megs. BB looks kinda like a pug.
