Question Here is a question for all

Here is a question for the cybertron.ca universe:
Has Starscream or any of the seekers ever had battle masks or are they(battle masks) a newer thing? This was just something that crossed my mind any thoughts please?

Re: Here is a question for all

I don't believe they've ever had anything like that.

I think battle masks only really became a thing in the Bay movieverse. I mean, other than that the only real masks I can think of were beast wars, and they were those "mutant" heads on the toys only, not in the show.

Re: Here is a question for all

I believe the battle mask to be "official" starting in the Bayverse movies..However I do remember seeing the old North American Marvel Comics Transformer series where Soundwave and a few others were drawn intentionally without the mouth guard and they had full faces under them..but they did eventually end up drawn the classic way in the end..

For what it's worth, several early Beast Wars characters had masks.

I do know that the Autobots had battle masks in Animated. It would be neat if the Seekers had them.

Re: Here is a question for all

Did the Bay movies ever explain why they had battle masks?

No g1s had battle masks for seekers
That would be odd.

Re: Here is a question for all

From what I recall, the Bayverse has battle masks as a result of the difference of opinion between Michael Bay and everyone else. He wanted Prime to have a mouth, so he ended up with the mouth / battle mask modes... and then several other bots got them as well.

Re: Here is a question for all

Battle masks go back to Beast Wars, with Optimus Primal. Granted, Primal rarely used his. But I'm pretty sure he's still the first proper case.

And even Cybertron and Animated gave their Primes battle masks.
