    When looking at The Fallen you may notice that his face is desighned after the Decpticon logo, but why does he also have the Decepticon logo on his chest? I know it's a cool little logo, but really. I gues he just loves himself :)

    Hasbro prefer to brand their TF figures with a faction logo, probably so kids know which side to have him fight on. It's why TF:A Lockdown has a Decepticon logo even though he's not a Decepticon. The Fallen is a bad guy so he's got a bad guy logo.

    So the kids know he's a Decepticon. (because the sculpt and colours just scream Autobot)

    Then again, if someone made a T-shirt with my face on it and like half the world wore it, I might wear it, too.

    I once made a t-shirt with my face printed huge on it and my pal had to wear it everywhere for a week as a bet. I was also going to make curtains with my face giant on them and make him hang them at his house so my face could be seen by passersby, but his wife wouldn't let him. So instead we painted my face on his van. For a while 'Big Face' bets were the thing with me and my mates. :)

    maybe in the movie universe, but the true origin of the decepticon logo is it was based of soundwave's headsculpt, while the autobot one one was from prowl

    ^yeah but this is the movie line.

    In the prequel comics, it was revealed that Megatron got the decepticon logo from the artifacts that contained/imprisoned the Fallen. It's not so much that the Fallen has the Decepticon logo, it's that Megatron and all his followers have the Fallen's "logo."

    Because kids today who are just getting into transformers don't know anything about transformers not even the names unless its Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, or Megatron. It's Devastator not that big decepticon, the twins have names they are Skids and Mudflap, and it's Ravage not that cat transformer. I'm sure all of you have heard kids call them stuff like that.
