    QFT. Seriously, I don't feel the movie Rapes my childhood, but at the same time I don't like it or think it really fits in with the Transformers name. I try not to quote other people that like the movie go "how the hell can you like that", so I don't think it's unreasonable to ask that people that like the movie designs don't do that to people that hate them.

    LOL, why did u have to remind me of that abomination? now as far as the image....i personallly think it's fake cause it doesn't look like a bug,vagina,or a monkey. it actually looks kinda cool so it can't be legit but i'm surprised no one thinks it could be sunstreaker or sideswipe. it has that kinda sleek speedy look to it and also it looks nothing like their g1 selves so that naturally means it's probably them.

    Thats kick ass! Oh god not more raped my childhood bullshit! God die people go die! Its not funny to say raped your child hood thats michael jacksons job, and its not funny to joke about rape either. Are people really that weird to SAY OMG RAPED CHILDHOOD OVER A MOVIE! Thats based on childrens toys. JESUS! Rape isnt something to use lightly or jokingly or anything.

    Well it looks better than the head designs for the Decepticons in the first movie IMO.

    I have to say this looks a lot nicer than most of what we got for the first film. I appreciate that TPTB are taking input and trying to tone down the outlandishness of the first round of designs. If the rest of the new TF's are designed along these lines I might see the sequel just to look at the robots, despite whatever human-based antics I have to endure.

    I can understand people not being able to see the resemblance as that's pretty subjective, and if I'd just seen this without context I wouldn't immediately jump to the conclusion that it was Tracks. But if it really is the head of the corvette-bot, I can see the resemblance, which would only grow stronger if it was colored like G1 Tracks' head.

    That said, I'm not so keen on the projecting faceplate with its "rhino-horn", but I suppose this might be his battle mask and he may have a (hopefully) good-looking nose and mouth under there. If not, it certainly could have been worse. My problem with the film wasn't so much that they didn't resemble their G1 incarnations (which I still would have preferred) but that I just didn't like how they looked standing on their own. I'd much rather have a good looking cast that doesn't resemble G1 than a terrible looking cast that references G1 elements (I'm looking at you Megatron).

    Where does everyone get the "Tokyo" stuff?

    The opening scene of the movie is set in Shanghai, China.

    I like it. Have to say it has a something of a Tracks vibe to it, very 'arrogant' looking, at least to me if that makes any sense.

    it just looks soo pissed off for an autobot. does resemble galvatron though..... I know ... maybe it's a new head mold for the deluxe version of the first movies megatron toy. we did't get our galvatron repaint yet....they only repainted that megatron like 3 times, hasbro is good for another 6 repaints.

    Ah well. i guess that maybe some of these guys are still alluding to the Binaltinators version of Prowl... i.e. "Japanese Lettering" on the car doors etc! Dunno... maybe it Bay's spies planting more "disinformation" .... :p
