    just a quick question about the megatron's head appearing in alt mode. maybe he doesnt have very good eye sight. he could at least have a face plate like in the first movie.

    So he can see where he's going, silly!

    But in all seriousness its probably just to look cool. A tank with pissed off, glowing red eyes would probably scare the fook out of most people IRL.

    It works in Maximum Overdrive... At least plot-wise.

    I'm just happy he's tank instead of gun and most importantly he's back!

    ^ All those toys had visible heads in their vehicle modes. He's saying that Megatron liked the idea.

    I hate visible heads in alt modes, regardless of who it is, or what toyline it's from, it feels lazy and cheap.

    His alt-modes are not disguises like those of the others. There's no real reason why his head couldn't be there.

    Exactly

    He's a cybertronian tank, obviously not the best choice for a disguise on Earth, so why would he even need to bother hiding it?

    it's because he doesn't need to shoot you. he just bites you when he drives past. That and he's so vain, he wants everyone to look at him while he kills.
