    I don't see why they need them. Sunburn perhaps or maybe modesty LOL? But it does look bad ass to me, so I don't mind.

    With Megatron on RotF his head was damaged, so that's why hes covering up.
    For other characters, it doesn't make much sense.

    It depends on the situation really. Like Megs there had a damaged head, so he was covering it up, possibly to help keep sand out. Other cases are different, like Drift was somewhat in disguise that one time. Other times, it could just be a matter of tastes. Maybe the mech likes certain clothing (I have an OC that likes to wear fingerless gloves, and a friend has an OC who loves his dramatic scarf). Cybertronians who wear any kind of clothing, tho, seems to be pretty rare as is.

    I like the idea of some wearing cloaks or cowls, as long as it fits.

    Sure, as long as not literally everybody starts wearing one. And I'd prefer the cloak to come from the alt mode somewhere, instead of just sprouting out of nowhere.

    On an unrelated note, I'm disappointed Megatron never did a dramatic reveal of his half-destroyed face in DotM.

    In some situations, sure! DOTM Megatron was pretty cool with that cloak to hide his fucked-up face and also forming the tarp of his truck mode.

    Animated Lockdown's poncho was cool too, but he kind of just showed up with it for no reason and ditches it almost immediately for the fight.

    I'm all for it! It doesn't have to be "done right" or even make sense. Doesn't have to part of their alt-mode either. If we can accept that somewhere in their bodies are all the fabric, leather, plastic, and rubber bits that perfectly makes up the interiors of their vehicles why can't they hide some cape or hood along with all that other junk? Also, I think Transformers wearing clothing is amusing. >>;

    Yay.

    I really do dig Hobo-tron with a Shotgun's look.

    If there's an altmode explanation I kind of dig it, like DOTM Megatron. Or if the cape/cloak is still some form of metal.

    Not a fan of most other instances, like G1 Starscream wearing a cape during his crowning scene.
