Wel, based upon what Seibertron.com is saying, that will likely be the case since that is only a set prop. Those are used to give the actors something direct their eyes to and play off of. The actual character will be CG.
Please dear god, let them cover that crap with CG. I'm getting a feeling that this movie is going to end up sucking big time and every time I see more pics (provided they are complete and or original) the feeling gets worse and worse!
