Why they're not making Decepticons with more humanoid face structure?

    Almost all Bayformers Decepticons don't have a humanoid face like Autobots. They look more like insects and beasts instead.

    My theories about Decepticons are:
    1. They are originally special breeds. Born ready for war and strike fear to their enemies.
    2. Megatron and (probably) Soundwave altered any Cybertronian's appearance that decided to join the Decepticons

    Because people will complain that theyre faces are too humanoid. And if they change that they will complain theyre too insect like. Then they will fix it and people will complain they are too humanoid. Its an endless stupid cycle.

    I mean not everyone one of them. I understand that they're trying to say that "Decepticons are scary, because they're bad guys!" But after 3 movies, I think they should've made innovation for the Decepticons a little bit, instead of making the similar designs

    dehumanizes the bad guys so its easier to kill them off en masse and not bother with personality besides "grrr"

    My headcanon is that Decepticons were the “slaves” and “savages” of Cybertron before Megatron gathered and promised to help them overthrow their “oppressive” masters: the ruling faction (Autobots)

    Don’t ask me to explain why former Decepticons like Jetfire and Drift look that way.

    I think it carries a deeper meaning which simply shouldn't be mapped out to us: the Autobots look more human because they are more human; they think like us, they act like us, they want to work with us and to protect us.

    Conversely, the implication set forth by the design of the Decepticons is that they are the exact opposite; they are, at their core, monsters who either want to kill us all off and make a new Cybertron, or harvest all our Energon, leaving us bereft of it and possibly in shambles, and GTFO, almost like a home invader. Actually, exactly like a home invader, only in a literal sense.

    I have no problem with that. Megatrons face was human enough for me in the last one.

    As long as they're also decorated by edges and shapes that blend, I'm okay with that.

    But characteds like Que or Drift don't work for me. At all.

    Because they're not human.

    And unlike the Autobots, they're not in love with humanity. Why would they choose to look more human?

    A visual short cut to make up for the robots not really having any personality before they were killed off in larger numbers to make the Autobots and humans seem like the most bad ass of bad ass warriors in the entire universe. Think the Lord of the Rings thing where you have a load of unknown bad guys fighting a load of unknown good guys it's just easier to make the bad guys the butt ugly group and the good guys the pretty ones.

    Really not a good biological reason for it. Humans have had our share of good guy and bad guys but you can't just look at someone and go oh yea the good guys. So humans figured out at bit of color coding would help by saying okay don't shoot the guys wearing blue shoot the guys wearing gray. But for some odd reason the movie design team seemed have something against color so it couldn't be blast the blue and purple robots not the yellow bot.

    I wish the Decepticons in the Movie-Verse didn’t look obviously “evil” with extreme angular bodies full of shards, sharp teeth, scary face, and etc.

    Both sides should mostly look neutral, while the Decepticons look a bit more authoritarian and monochromatic, aside from the more flamboyant cons coughStarscreamcough.

    We have robots that look like humans. Also what should they look like? In my head cannon they were built by human like sexed aliens.

    Super humanoid faces look cheesy and creepy in CGI. Plus alien monster faces make bad guys look evil easier.
