    My god....

    The ramifications of this are indescribable and incomprehensible. The highest power in the land needs to be informed of this!

    Almost all of the Cybertron scenes characters were all model reuses of other character parts, they scrambled quickly to add that in, it wasn't part of the original script before it went from prequel to reboot.

    and also

    least we forget Longarm Prime.

    That’s odd def an Autobot symbol. Where is that art from? I can see them making the mistakes in the 80’s series but not in new art with so much detail.

    That's what happens when you literally throw a bunch of character models together practically last minute.

    Probably just a silly error.

    That's just more G1 accuracy - it's a classic "wrong symbol" animation error!

    Didn't TLK Onslaught have Autobots on his body as a kill count?

    Yeah but those were obvious tally marks. This is just a misplaced symbol, probably not even caught by the modellers, just happened during the scramble to make CGI models for the Cybertron scenes. (you'd be surprised how often that happens when you're in a crunch)

    According to this screenshot, Soundwave defected to the Autobots and is now their Energon Pizza Delivery Man.

    It's definitely just a misplaced symbol on a model that was cobbled together from a ton of reused assets in a scene that, while cool, wasn't originally meant to be there and we weren't really supposed to get a good look at any of the models because we'd never see them much more than that. That said, I wouldn't mind Shockwave as an ex-Autobot.

    It is very clearly Optimus' arm with the detail covered up and/or smoothed down anyway. Guy who did the texture for Shockwave was probably thinking about deadlines more than details with how quickly thrown together the scene was.

    If it bugs you, just pretend Shockwave took one of Optimus' arms in a previous battle, sprayed it purple, and wears it as a trophy or whatever.

    I dunno, maybe it's possibly a case of them reusing model pieces for the movie.
