    I watched a clip of Optimus fighting Bonecrusher, and I noticed some text on his collar. Can anyone figure out what it says?


    regardless, it just goes to show how much work ILM actually put into these robots...so much respect points earned lol

    It looks like "MPV". Which is Bonesy's alt mode.

    Absolutely. These are Oscar-worthy VFX.

    Can't read it, but yes, the level of detail is amazing. My guess is that it's one of three things:

    -simply "MPV" or a legit military label
    -merely Cybertronian scribbling, like many characters have on them
    -an easter egg that says something like "Mike Rocks", "Big F**king Robots" or something

    It looks similar to MPOVOV, something like that. Possible acronym for Mine-Plow Operating Vehicle or something similar for the Buffalo's mine-clearing purpose, I'd guess.

    That's what I though too. Although it looks like there could have been a "y" as well.

    Yes spot on.

    Thanks to this thread I noticed that his Cybertronian symbols are above his eye! Dang, we need high res images of him asap.

    OOooh, that image is much nicer, what with a glorious high-res view of Optimus punching his goddamn face in.

    Anyway, let's have a look: Yes, that's definitely MPOV at the start, and I believe another OV behind it.

    Yeah, too me it looks like MPOVOV17 now in that new screenshot.

    Anyone military enough to know what that means besides that the Buffalo is a Mine-Plow Operating Vehicle or whatever?

    It's definitely "MPCV", especially since that abbreviation is actually used on the manufacturer's official website.

    Optimus doesn't. That was the beginning of his face-taking hobby...Though at first he took the whole head... o_O
