In a move that might have been geared toward those of us who are G1 nuts, it seems that somebody made an almost last minute change with the eyes of the Transformers. It appears that somebody updated the eyes to be faction specific like they were in the G1 cartoon. Red eyes for Decepticons and blue eyes for Autobots. Here are some screen captures from the trailer released today to demonstrate that the eye colors are now faction specific, which they weren't in previous trailers and images.

Can someone from the official movie camp confirm or deny this change?

That picture of Ironhide coming out of the pool was changed a while ago, but I'm glad they're going to keep the eyes in the classic coloring. Also, Megs kind of looks like from the deepest pits of Hell there. Which isn't a bad thing, really. The mace is just kickass...and badass if its not a mace at all, and is, in fact, Jazz.

The more I see the more I've become excited to see it. I'm glad the eyes will help keep us in tune with whose side is on which. I'm perfectly okay with Megatron's look now that he has YET to get an Earth mode.

Looks pretty clear cut to me--and Megs definately has red eyes on the official poster. I don't remember ever seeing him with blue eyes.

Those 'con captures are making me happy...perhapse a little too happy? I wasn't quite able to keep up with the barriage of images on the new trailer, however many times I watched it, so this helps.

I've been taking note of this too. I always liked the concept in the G1 cartoon and I'd love to see it in the movie!

I haven't put too much thought into the color of Transformers' eyes.

Me neither. I'm paralyzed, obssessing on the point they all look like classic gaming bosses... the kinds where they're just a head connected to a neck made out of disconnected balls.

And that any one transformer looks like another.

I take full responsiblity for the Decepts having red eyes. I drew the movie Megatron and Starscream with red eyes long before they changed it. Kneel before Jazz!

for some reason I thought that was so obvious that it was not worth mentioning... must have been me then. By this I mean it never occured to me to be any other way.

Never noticed the change. I thought they had the faction thing with the eyes back in the trailer before the MARS one.

However, they do glow brighter this time around. I'm pretty happy that they are doing this. Kudos to Micheal Bay.

At least they got something right!

I didn't really put too much thought into the eye color *until* I noticed the earlier versions of Autobots such as Ironhide having red eyes and Megatron & Frenzy having blue.

As insignificant as it is overall, I am nonetheless very pleased that they did end up changing things to be 'faction accurate' as it were.

I concur with Sunstar. I'm not sure this is newsworthy as it is just a trivial detail.

Its probably cos the average, non TF fan won't be able to tell them apart on screen.

Just as God intended.

By the time TF2 comes out, GM will be under, so they might just give Jazz the justice that he deserves!

And Megatron looks downright evil, like, perhaps, an "...ever-spinning Engine of Death"? lol

Sorry. I had to.

Possible spoiler below:

Let's just hope that retractable "sword arm" for Prime is not just a myth also!

Bring on the robo-carnage, damnit!!!!

Cool pics and that thing Megs been bashing in the trailer is Jazz. So now wee know who won't be in the next movie. Bad luck, oh by the way, nice to have a more classic kind of stile in the Movie.

Wait a minute ... a trivial detail? Everything we've been bitching about with the movie has been a "trivial detail". Somebody went out of their way to make this change and after all of the bitching and complaining that the fans have done, I think it's important that we left the movie folks know that we noticed this and appreciate this. Anyone who has a "meh" attitude about changes like this is part of the problem with why so many things have been changed. Each and every little thing adds up.
