    How did his face go from this:[​IMG]

    to this:[​IMG]

    and the whole age thing cant be used because primes face resembles megatrons early look and remains the same yet megatron's face looks really messed up?

    Apparently, being evil makes your face ugly, eyes red, and teeth sharp.

    Don't become evil kids!

    EDIT: Hell, even his eyebrows and fingers are shaped differently.

    Could be markings, battle scars or modifications to make him look more threatening.

    His eyes turned red after he became a Decepticon, the difference in color is due to the lighting, and the scars are from his battle with Optimus.

    Megatron is just too pissy about not getting the Matrix. Optimus destroys that shit, everybody happy.

    I just had a Raksha moment, guys. I thought that the High Council made some pretty serious mistakes in not trusting Megatron's judgement, and that he could have restored Cybertron to glory. The Autobots are ttly terrorists.

    but the way the lines are on his face almost seem to be the way they drew his face(like frown lines) rather then scars,they match up perfectly on both sides, I do like the scar idea though.

    I believe later on he gotten battle scars on his face and perhaps modifyed his teeth to look more intemidating to his enimeies and henchmen.

    The face with blue eyes Megatron had is from a tale told by Ratchet of Megatron and Optimus's history. So that scene is not meant to show the exact image of past Megatron. Besides, it's really not much different, maybe just look younger. The change in eye color has never been properly explained, but it most likely has to do with the rage and Megatron's choice to be a Decepticon, as almost all Decepticons have red eyes except for Airachnid, whose eyes are violet/purple and Breakdown whose eyes are yellow, most likely due to his face being red

    The painter of the flashback picture got his face design wrong. They even give Soundwave a completely different design during a shot.
