    Well they're easier to see on the alt mods, though they are kind of 'hidden'. The only insignia on a bot mode I've seen so far however was in the close up pic of BB's face and it was right on his helmut. My guess is they're there, just not obnoxiously large.

    Prime has an Autobot symbol on top of his grill.
    Ratchet and Barricade have Autobot and Decepticon logos over their respective 'badges'
    I wouldn't be supprised if Screamer get a Decepticon logo on his wings where the USAF symbol should be.

    I'd imagine it'd be like that.
    If you think of Beast Wars, though, none of the characters in that series had faction logos on their toys, the show added them but subtley. That is what we are seeing here. In fact, Bumblebee's head logo makes me think of BW Megatron's own head logo. Both had their symbols on an area like that.

    I wonder if they will have a fancy scene for the symbols, like a branding or burning of them when they get their modes..

    I'm hoping these abortions don't use the symbols at all.

    You need to look at the released pics. So far, every single TF we've seen up close has their allegiance symbol somewhere.

    Bumblebee has it on his forhead.
    Ratchet has it incorporated into his vehicle modes emblems. Ditto Barricade.
    Ironhide has it embossed on his vehicle mode's tail flap.

    I'm more than inclined to agree with this. So long as these guys never transformed, I'd be happy.


    One thing I will admit is that the vehicle modes do a really, REALLY good job of fitting the "robots in disguise" adage. The faction symbols are discrete and sneakily integrated into the designs and color schemes for these guys. Where and when they do appear, they're subtle. That's cool. I'd been hoping for that type of approach for a while. Even G1 didn't do the best job of faction symbol subtlety.

    if they wanted to be really XTREME!! the decepticons would have a really HUGE red X on there hands. while the autobots would all have an emo style hair cut.

    heheheh. You know you liked it.

    But the sad thing is, that actually had better fx than the original show.

    SPOILERS***




    At Botcon today they showed a video of some of the scenes (not the actual scenes but instead the filming of the scenes) and at one point they zoomed in on an Autobot symbool on top of the grill of Prime. :)
