    As much as I love this show, I can't help but wonder why Optimus Prime's hands looked so weird. Like, his palms were as flat as pancakes while his fingers were thick.

    This was the best screen shot I could find:

    Come to think of it, his whole forearms looked weird.

    A few bots in Prime have flatter fingers.

    At least they look quite mechanical-ish rather than the standard roundness like a human hand.

    Honestly? I think his hands look nice. Even though they've been bloodied and gritted (is that a word?) by war, they are gentle. They protect, and they shield the good from the bad. They are the hands of a leader that has seen death, but they are also the hands of a Prime.

    Quite frankly, I noticed there was a huge difference in his hands once he got upgraded. Not so flat anymore, but quite beefy and manly. Goddamnit, I'm beginning to fangirl again.

    EDIT: Image found of Beefimus Prime's hands
