In all seriousness, though, I'm really loving the designs. They have a more streamlined, uniform look, instead of the garbage piles we saw in the last film. They weren't kidding when they said they were going in a different direction with the look of this film.
I especially love Optimus Prime's look. As someone mentioned on the forums of the site those photos came from, he really looks like a samurai (look at his shoulders and torso!). He looks very regal, warrior-like and commanding, like he could lead an army. The added mass really makes a big difference in making the designs stand out. And that head! That head design is so G1. It just screams Optimus Prime to me.
And Grimlock looks awesome.
If this is an indication of the direction the film is headed in, I'm definitely looking a bit more forward to this.
