All of the movie faces are a disaster in my opinion. I gave up after the first movie. Optimus with the face shield used to look somewhat OK, but whatever they did to it for this movie made it a mess too. I don't understand why their faces have to be so overly complicated and weird looking. I'm assuming that they must look too cartoonish the more humanoid they look, but there's got to be a compromise somewhere.

Even from a design perspective, it seems like making Hot Rod's "face" silver or some other contrasting color to make it stand out against the color of his head would help make it pop some more to help give visual cues what we're looking at. We shouldn't be having to figure out that he has a humanoid face because someone did some highly zoomed in crop of an image of his head.


Well what's done is done the best we can hope for in the future are more faces like Crosshairs, Drift and Hound that are easy to make out but are distinct to thier character.

At least for the Autobots their faces are a bit creative and distinct from each other compared to G1 where you needed a different helmet, visor or different mouthplate shape to make them distinct because all the "liquid metal" human faces were 100 identical.

There really is no win win for any of us since for the franchise as a whole faces are either going to be to generic or too complicated.

Just saying, Hound wins for faces. I love his, it is literally perfect.

I think I felt myself actually back away from my laptop for a second when I noticed Hot Rod's mouth... that is 100% creepy, not gonna lie.

Doling out vengeance as he discovers I like every Hot Rod/Rodimus except him :lol:
My defence will be saying that Armada Hot Shot was called Hot Rod in Micron Legend, and I certainly don't like him either :twisted:


On a slightly more serious note Transformers does get off kinda lucky when it comes to face designs, especially recently. Faceplates and Visors alone bring in some variety, and then you've got stuff like Windblade - whether you like her and her design or not, you've gotta admit that face certainly ain't generic.

Yup I was kinda put off by Windlbabe's head at first but I'm starting to like it due to the fact that Windblade is a much more original character in most of the Transformers franchise then say any Arcee.

Speaking of her do any of you think she might have a role in this film?

She "could" be the red Mclaren but I doubt it and think said car is actually a returning Dino which I think there might be a small chance since "Mirage" is getting a toy in the Tiny Changers line but then again characters such as Blackout, Starscream, Lockdown and Sideswipe are getting one too and their pretty much not in the movie due to most of them being...well dead.

No I don't. She wasn't listed on any of the character sheets of the hundreds of characters shown in those scale sheets at the Last Knight set in Detroit last summer.

A few questions. 1: What's a scale sheet? 2: Are you allowed to talk about any of the characters on said sheet or is it something forbidden according to contracts?

Anyways I did not think she would be but I was thinking maybe there was a chance said Windblade turns into a jet and Megatron's new jet mode was not on set due to being a "alien" jet also most of Starscream's flying scenes were just cgi and not actually filmed from what I heard.

It is rather surprising that Hasbro wouldn't order the movies to have their new put-them-in-everything-ever-thanks character, but then it seems like the movies make so much on their own they get much more of a say in what they can do and who they have.
Of all the media to have creative freedom... :HEADHURTS:

I dunno. This face looks a bit too cutesy weird for me. And I'm a big fan of most of the movie faces and love their uniqueness and complexity (I hate the face styles in Animated cos they're just awful and RID2015 cos they creep me out more with their eyes). I wanna see him in action though.

This is a G1 scale sheet that shows all of the characters in scale with each other. Paramount had these all around the art room we saw back in August, but with Movie characters instead of G1 characters (obviously). The characters weren't just from Last Knight, it seemed all Transformers from all of the movies were including among various different sheets around all of the walls in the art room. My memories are a little foggy from last August, but I seem to recall Devastator alongside other larger characters like Jet Prime, etc. Most were characters we had seen but some seemed to be characters that were well known from special features or whatever.

Surprisingly, Paramount didn't have me sign a non-disclosure in August 2016 or March 2017 so I think I'm able to talk about whatever you guys want to ask me about. Ask away and I'll tell you if I know something or if I can't talk about it.

THAT MEME IS DEAD. BURY IT.
(it was never that funny to begin with. Especially when you just slap "nation" onto the ends of words that don't end with "tion".)
So in other words, KNOW YOUR MEME EXPIRATION DATE.

Ahhhhh So you did mean a scale chart ok I thought you were talking about something else like... building scales or something.

Anyways tried to ask you some questions last knight but it seems my phone did not post them... I might as well get them out of the way right now.

1: Was Cogman's Aston Martin body shown at all or was he in bhis small Headmaster robot form the whole time?

2: Are the other Dinobots besides Grimlock and Slug in the footage you were shown and were they ever in thier robot forms at all?

3: Did any of the Transformers talk with actual voice work and if so which ones?

4: Did Canopy actually die, live or is it unclear in what you guys saw?

5: WHO IS THE RED MCLAREN IS IT OUR BEAUTIFUL BOY DINO RETURNING?! I'm just sort of kidding/sarcastic about this one I don't think anyone knows besides the movie staff and some others right now.

But if you might know this is the guy I'm talking about he was seen with Bee, Hot Rod and Cogman in Landon where I think one of if not the final battle takes place at least with Earth Locations.
