    I'm definitely seeing how this is a new model for prime now. His whole physical build is different. It's blockier, more filled out. Similar to Sentinel. Probably easier on ILM to render too. A little more WFC shifty pointy panels rather than TF1 anemic guts and gears. Even his head shape look more... animated. The details on his hands are my favorite part.

    Haha, I just noticed the photoshopper copypasta'ed his face higher to make it more visible, but the old face is still under it!

    Not really sure what to make of the interview because I've never know Bay to anything that I'd call mature in his films. I've wanted to see him do something more mature and I'll wish him the best of luck in pulling it off, but I'm just not expecting a mature feeling to Dark of the Moon.

    Also while I'm American and I really like being American it felt just a touch insulting to kind of say it only counts if it happens in America. Sure I'm American but I also almost pass for human so I can feel just as bad for what happened to the people in Japan with the earthquake as much as could if the disaster had struck California.

    At least he gives me something for the reboot argument. Even if Dark of the Moon turns out far better than I could have ever imagined I'm kind of ready for a new direction.

    Great piece on Comingsoon.net. Bay admits that the lack of info/promotion with TF3 is intentional. That's awesome.

    "This is a very involved robot story. I hate letting the cat out of the bag, but you just learn more about the hierarchy, what goes on at Cybertron."

    "I've been working every day for two years because I want to make up for the second one and I want to leave this franchise the best I can."

    I almost get the feeling that what he means by this is that the Twins are in DOTM, but they're not the same characters they were in ROTF. Almost seems to hint at one of then dieing, and the other goes through a bit of maturity because of it.

    Prime definately looks more heroic, like they said a while back. Those shoulder pads really work.

    Also, I'm betting those mini-ships are scouting drones.

    This made me laugh.

    Optimus: So, should I... should I just put my weapons out like this? Was that a good take? Okay, Megatron wants to get in. How much is it for a group photo with me, him and Shockwave?

    Not letting the cat out of the bag has been a very good thing. It's just a really nice change for a film to leave some things to be discovered as you watch the film instead of knowing far too much in advanced.

    Kind of gives it an old school action flair when you knew there would be some cool action to a film like Raiders of the Lost Ark but you didn't feel like you knew all the best bits before the film.

    I'm actually taking that more as a reference to Wheelie and Brains, rather than Skids and Mudflap, actually.

    Awesome pic of Optimus. The decepticons are about to get their asses handed to them.

    I have a comparison image of the Prime "head shift."

    (I edited the poster in photoshop.)
