Eh, I disagree. I don't think it's "so ugly" honestly. It looks pretty good to me. The face is a bit weird, but then again, Bumblebee's face was far more bizarre in the Bayverse and he had carried it for 5 movies. You know, thinking about it, Jazz, Prime without a face plate, and Ratchet all had weird ass faces. Anyways, I'm just happy with the direction they are going with. I want more of this and less of the tiny pieces of metal glued together. The problem with these designs were that they were rushed so they didn't receive the love and attention like with Bumblebee and Prime. Refine this design a bit more with an actual Earth mode and it should look solid.
