    Very cool design! Just nitpicking: I totally get why the combination of sort-of live action style eyes with a more humanoid face may put people off. It kinda looks like he'd always look dumbfounded. If they try something like this in the future for live action, I hope for a middle ground were the eyes may be shaped like the ruby shape they had in G1 on the outside, which take less space on the overall face design, but kind of transparent, so that on close ups, they could have the sort of camera lens kind of style of the movies as a pupil. Wouldn't that be interesting? I don't think we've had this approach before.

    Here we go again people complain this bumblebee have face but not in movies people are complaining about transformers cyberverse grimlock and wheel jack having mouths you want g1 stick cartoons that have no logic.,

    You want realism with new direction stick with movies transformers energon and cybertron went in new direction with ironhide toy and Optimus prime no complaints from picky people giant alien robots never had contact with humans on home planet out in space not all aliens have human faces shockwave have no mouth, sound wave have no mouth, g1 grimlock have no mouth where your stupid complaints about those characters not having human faces.

    Not all aliens have to look humanoid body and face that’s what make them aliens, alien queen from aliens, PREDATORS, abyss aliens, you want aliens that look humanoid stick with alien nation and g1 comics and cartoons.,

    If you can not except change movies had made new transformers fans of people who do not read comics who do not watch cartoons buy toys stick with g1 stuff no one forces you watch movies and movie trailers buy toys from movie series movies made people into new fans by cartoons not comics things change be happy transformers is popular again that comics and cartoons could never ever do with new transformers fans of fans had there way with movies live action movies will be cartoon looking bots same size same as cartoon series

    extremely annoying complaint about same stupid stuff all time that’s not important ironhide cybertron toy no one complained

    DON'T FUCK WITH WHEELJACK'S FACE!!! It's bad enough the cartoon screwed him up by adding eyes.

    That’s pretty much every movie face except the new bumblebee. What do you think happened to the fallen’s face?

    Yeah but the cute kid-appeal bot is literally the one bot you should keep the creepy face from.
    Bizarre how bulbous round eyes can flip-flop between cute and unsettling.

    Us Americans don't understand "kawaii." Just look at those disturbing Pop Vinyl dolls and Japan's Nandroid figures.

    Some pops are alright. Namely the ones where you don’t see the eyes. Storm troopers, power rangers and garnet come to my mind.

    Looks Great save for the face. Would love to see Milne give it the same treatment he gave to Figuerola's "ongoing" designs.

    Huh, so you prefer Figuerola's pseudo-bayformer faces over Milne's more traditional ones? I'd say that's a rare bird, but I respect your preferences.
