It seems that this is the only robot with a humanoid face - I could imagine that it took a while to convince Bay to compromise the changing of the generic, manga-spawn look. I wish they took this approach to the other bots - especially starscream who looks like a gorilla-jackolantern with chicken legs.

At least now his standard head looks menacing, and his battle mode even more so. I wish the toys had his battle head, but after looking at the pics of the prototypes, it's looks like the kept the new standard one, probably because the toys were already in production when they made the change, which would explain why the new standard head looks almost exaclty like the old battle head... does that make sense?
Could it be? Our bitching actually caused the bigwigs to make a pretty drastic last-minute change, for the better?

I still feel this way about the new 'Standard Mode' head
