    I was thinking about this...In the first movie, it is stated that the Transformers can regenerate lost parts. Like with Skorponok. So, why is it then, that Megatron is still missing half of his face?

    Fun Reason. Jet Power Optimus is one bad ass mother fucker.
    Logical reason. Prime blasted his face off with a JET ENGINE gun. Maybe it burnt out the regenerative properties like the SABOW round did to Scory's tail in the first movie?

    Supposedly it just hasn't "healed" yet. Capone said that in the movie thare's little repair nanobots active in Megatron's head, trying to repair the damage. Since he doesn't have access to medical tools it's taking a while.

    Hell, even his right arm is just a thrown-together prosthetic.

    I have four possible explanations:

    1 - Optimus made a DEEP AS HELL wound that his armor was unable to grow back [if you notice, Scorponok lost his tail only to a helicopter, Megs lost HALF OF HIS FREAKING HEAD to Optimus using a JET ENGINE blast].

    2 - Optimus kicked his ass so hard his systems overloaded and were unable to deal with such ridiculous amount of wounds Megatron acquired.

    3 - Megatron left that wound open to remind him of his greatest failure, to remind what pain Optimus inflicted upon him and how he would not let that happen again.

    4 - He regenerates slowly.

    Or possibly all four.

    I don't even think Scorponok's tail tip was there during his quick scene in RotF. I could be wrong, though.

    I went back to that part, and he most definitely has his tail. It swings around when Jetfire smashes his head. Haha

    Actually it was Prime forcing Megatron's own cannon on him that blasted his face.

    this is correct. it said on the first movie that it was self regenerating molecular armor. i think the blast to his face went past the armor!

    Seeing how the cannon round was REALLY hot, his facial wounds were cauterized instantly.

    Or maybe it's because ILM thought he'd look cooler with a messed up face.

    I never said you said that [holy damn, this is starting to look like those "I know you know" conversation from Mystery Men].

    I was just agreeing with you.

    Megatron is trying look more awesome than Shockwave (since his "violent meter" is a little bit over the psychotic violence of Megs)

    S: "I got a huge killer driller that can beat the crap outta an entire city!"
    M: "Oh yeah?? Well-well- I HAVE half a face!
    S: "-__-"
    Dr Nick: "Hello everybod"-BOOM

    Alternatively:

    Megatron: "AT LAST! My face is fixed on its own!"
    Starscream: "There's a small hole here" *points to teensy-weensy hole on Megs head*
    Megatron: "Indeed, SCALPEL, COME FIX ME!"

    And so we ended up here.

    I'll answer your question with another question.

    Why can humans heal yet if he/she were burned on the face he/she wouldn't be able to fully heal?

    Basically, Megatron's cannon doesn't like him.

    ^That was my explaination when I was asked at home about it.
