    Hi, i was wondering (and some of us too at least) who is the guy from the posters, i never care for that, but some recent news about posters never used, awakes my attention.

    And i collected some of the same theme.

    I said in my head that it was just symbolic, and the guy it's just the autobot insignia, but, in some posters, it have some more details than the actual logo.

    It's just Optimus. It was meant to represent him.

    You know I never realised that the bot's face was literally the Autobot insignia. I always thought it was Optimus Prime but now it seems it was just symbolic.

    It's just the Autobot logo with an eye in it. It only has more details because they're using a larger version. If you look there's a faint "scar" above the eye that's present on the logo as well. It's not a guy.

    It would be neat if "Planet Cybertron" used a similar design for their face.

    I know it's not, but I always see the eye as Megatron's. Obviously in more of a G1 form as I see the poster before the actual monstrous design was revealed.But even now I see it as his.

    (I absolutely love that first poster by the way. Have never seen that one before but now I want one for my wall!)

    A placeholder, they put a super-realistic mech eye behind the metal movie Autobot logo.

    The use of the Autobot logo is actually quite brilliant. Nearly any TF fan can instantly recognise the classic shape of the 'Bot logo, while adding in the super detailed eye not only gives the idea of the actual robots' aesthetic, but shows that it's a new take on the franchise but staying true to the fundamentals.

    The one on the wall makes me think Optimus because of the hand. It looks like his.

    And I want those posters.

    Huh, I never realized it was the Autobot logo. That's actually really cool. I always thought it was Optimus Prime's protoform.

    In the movies, Autobot faces are designed after the Autobot insignia while Decepticon faces are designed based on the Decepticon insignia.

    Amazingly, check Lockdown's face:
