    HAH! That would be awesome.

    Must admit, glowing hair would be perfect.

    It's impossible to tell what name they'll slap on what character. I mean, look at previous movie TFs. If you would have seen Jetfire's head design first - would you have guessed who the character was?

    How about Skids & Mudflap? Jolt? Barricade? Blackout? Sideswipe? Ratchet? even Starscream?

    Hell, aside from Optimus Prime, Jazz and a few others, most faces are almost impossible to associate with a name unless you know ahead of time who they are.

    No way that bot is Kup. Kup is an old cantankerous fart, and the bot is too benevolent looking. That face looks like a sweet old bot that could be brilliant but is also definitely absent-minded. He looks like balding Einstein (he's even got a mustache) with corrective lenses. That dude is going to build a lot of stuff that isn't going to work... until the end of the movie, of course. I could totally see Wheeljack (with the fiber-optics lighting up as he speaks). Either way, he's already my favorite character in TF3 since Jetfire is not coming back.

    I agree. If it was Kup I'd expect him to look like a robotic version of someone like R. Lee Ermey. Even with the changes the film does I just can't see Kup being anything but a tough grizzled old vet.

    Kup needs a face that screams, "Get off my lawn!" which should haven been his tech-spec quote...

    I see Perceptor more as Einstein-ish than Wheeljack. Wheeljack is more like Da Vinci.

    Wheeljack is more like Doc Brown from Back to the Future.

    I don't know why, but I'm getting more of an amusement park/museum animatronic vibe from this.

    Yeah, I'd bet Wheeljack. Based on the robot face, I'm betting he's gonna have a goofy Dr.Strangelove-esque German accent, too.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I'm getting REALLY tired of these polls that just spring up the MOMENT anything that isn't fully laid out or explained is revealed in the movie.

    Unfortunately, I'm feeling like it's Wheeljack, which is a total shame. The hair looks like his ear panels, and I'm definitely getting the "scientist/engineer" vibe from him. Honestly, why couldn't they have made Wheeljack (if it is him), so much cooler?

    I mean, why not make him look like this?

    Probably is Wheeljack but i hope it's not.

    although if it is Wheeljack then that means well have Christopher Lloyd voice him. Then in that case i'm game :D

    It's rather difficult not to judge this character after witnessing the faces on the "Twins" in ROTF. Til this day I don't like their faces but the characters kind of grew on me after a long time.

    This new robot who ever it may be (hopefully an early design) is from the same artist that created the Twins. What I don't understand is why?

    Well, as long as the Decepticons keep looking way better than the Autobots I'll be happy.
    (I voted not Wheeljack.)

    Maybe it is just old Ironhide suffering from early baldness.

    It's gotta be Wheeljack. The face fits his character. He's a scientist and that's what this head design resembles. I actually like the design and hope it is Wheeljack or even Kup. I don't want Perceptor in the movie-verse.
