    It appears to be a custom form of the Decepticon insignia, like how the Wreckers carry a hammer on their Autobot insignia (why a hammer, I don't know).

    With TF2 the Con insignia was made of spikes, like on the Fallen's face - so it could possibly hints at some new faction that might appear to give the Autobots trouble in TF4. I wonder whom this could actually be...

    Anyway, the logo is rocking. Great to finally have some TF4 news.

    I think its probably just because they think a sleeker insignia works better for the logo and probably isn't a redesign of the actual insignia for the Decepticons at all.

    They need a new insignia so you would know it's the lame movie Decepticons and not any of the cool Decepticons you might remember from somewhere else :D 

    We've seen Hasbro experimenting with the Decepticon faction symbol on toys so it doesn't seem odd that the movies would experiment with it as well.

    It means 4 New decepticons will be introduced.....
    I actually like this new logo, I wonder if they tweaked the autobot logo as well given that there is supose to be new bots.

    You sure about that? It is kind of hard at this point to know how many new Decepticons we will actaully be getting.

    Well new logo. Want to know what I see? Another dorky comedy. With same director there is no chance to make something new. It will be still same plot, action and humour. Thats boring.

    That has to be the stupidest logo I've ever seen in my entire life..

    And how is it news? It's just a logo, it doesn't tell me anything about the movie except the fact that its the fourth movie and the deceptions will be in it...

    People bitching about it being a bad logo clearly haven't considered the likely alternative route they could've gone: Trans4mers. Yuck.

    I could care less it most likely won't show up on screen (TF3 with the autobot logo never did so it was pointless) its a bad logo to ME, so I'm not bitching about it, I just have a negative opinion, that's all

    I think it's just a design aesthetic. If the insignia were the proper design, it would really stick out, keeping the current design and the four out of balance, but that's just me.

    To me, this new logo looks like a combination of the Autobot and Decepticon logos as we know them. *shrug*

    It's almost certainly just for marketing purposes. I doubt they've actually changed the logo/insignia. Plus, by the time the movie actually comes out, it will undoubtedly have a subtitle (e.g. Rise of Galvatron, Megatron's Revenge, Sam Gets Laid Off).

    The logo is exactly the same as the Decepticon insignia used throught the other films, they just made it slightly thinner when editing it to be the same size as the '4'

    Nothing new at all.

    Its just been horribly stretched when they copied and pasted it from their image archives.

    Unless they go with the bad idea again of back from the dead I'm guessing they are going to need quite a few new Decepticons. Pretty much every Decepticon who was anyone in the film franchise is dead right now.

    Yeah, it's a new logo. We already have a thread for it...

    :lol  It's funny because it's true.

    "Summer 2014...prepare for another battle...in the life of Samuel James Witwicky!"

    "But Carly, I just got fired! Now I don't have a purpose for my life! I feel so useless!"

    "Sam, I am Optimus Prime, and I need your help! You feel useless, and we cannot defeat this new threat without you. Join us!"
