    I'm not sure I understand. Are you asking our preference?

    If we vote yellow, the eyes every single Transformers figure you own will turn a bright lemon by the strike of midnight.

    Serious answer, uhhh it depends? I like yellow eyes on some characters. But I am adamant that Soundwave's are red. Toy accuracy be damned, that bot's got a red visor.

    All characters in Transformers should have yellow eyes. Especially the humans.

    This is probably about Optimus Prime.

    I'll say it again. Yellow-eyed Optimus Prime, although criminally underutilized, is neither greater than, nor inferior to, but equally as good as blue-eyed Optimus Prime.

    Oh god. OH GOD-

    *Looks at first post*

    oh.

    I'd kinda like to see Prime with Yellow eyes again, I'm not a big fan of bots having all blue and Cons having all red eyes and would like a variety of eye colors.

    I would rather all have yellow eyes than all Autobots blue and all Decepticons red. That was a stupid Sunbow thing that I wish had never been started. I don't like the faction-specific optics.

    And while I prefer yellow, I think some deviations are cool. Bluestreak and the Dinobots, for example, I like with red eyes. Purple eyes are cool on some characters. And of course, blue looks good in some cases.

    Soundwave: Purple Eyes

    And, they're even better when they glow. I rest my case.

    But, if that's not enough, here's some more examples:

    The many eye colors of Starscream (Unicron Trilogy):

    Robert Cop Red Alert, definitely looks great with Red Eyes. Now, these eye colors combined with light piping makes it perfect. This is why I am against the Blue/Red thing. Way too many other colors to choose from. It actively hampers creativity. I have personally seen it work amazingly well in the previous decade, I think it is time to bring back, any color goes.

    So, my vote still stands. All colors are the rights of all sentient beings. None shall be slaves to a single color.

    For Optimus and Megatron there's the best options.

    For everyone else I'd say have the eye colour not be the same type of colour as their head and/or face, same for Optimus and Megatron.

    So don't give Bumblebee yellow eyes, don't give Cosmos yellow or red, don't give G1 coloured Smokescreen blue eyes (should swap names with Bluestreak too fight me) etc.

    I work with some real shitheads, and while it’d be helpful for them to have red eyes as a preemptive heads-up, it’s never worked out that way. I don’t mind my fictional robots having a similar diversity of hue.

    And yellow visor Soundwave is best Soundwave. Fight me.

    Since this got merged with the OG eye colour thread, I will say I like when there isn't a hard and fast rule to eye colour. I'll take Decepticons with blue eyes, Autobots with red or purple eyes, that's fine. As long as it doesn't clash with their overall look I don't think it matters. Faction emblem is obviously more indicative of their alliance, so eye colour really shouldn't matter in the long run.

    Alright, put 'em up! :throw

    Gold visor Soundwave is best Soundwave.

    The colour of yellow they used on the Siege version looks bad to be.
