I'm sure I remember a reference once where 'changing your optics' was shorthand for switching sides. And didn't Thunderclash remark on Drift's religious practice of changing his eyes to suit the mood?

If it is something easy to do, I figure that most Decepticons changed their eyes to Megatron's red early on and then it became a thing. Just like how everyone thinks Cyclonus is a Decepticon because he is purple. Colours are more than cosmetic to these guys!

People like Fort Max and Grimlock might be making some sort of statement by keeping their eyes red. 'Reclaim the suffix' and all that.

Now, what's up with Prime having yellow eyes in the -ation era and switching to blue around All Hail Megatron?
