    Maybe some of you noticed it too. When Megatron has Sam and the Doctor is examining him, the Autobots turn up (through the roof i think) and i noticed Prime does the same flip in mid-air as he did in the animated movie just as he transforms from vehicle mode on the way to his battle with Megatron. Did anyone else notice this and think the same thing?

    ... so if Optimus Prime does a backflip, it's a homage?

    Apparently if any character does something remotely familiar to the original movie, it's a homage. Like Jazz climbing Brawl in TF2007.

    Except that actually was an homage according the DVD special features. They even did a side by side shot showing it with the TFTM version of Kup swinging onto Blitzwing.

    But yeah, similar to what happened with Animated every week, a lot of people are seeing a lot of alleged homages that simply aren't there. There's the obvious ones, and there's just coincidences. When it comes to the movies, the 'writers' of these things have already proven tenfold that they're not remotely knowledgable or clever enough to sneak in a bunch of easter eggs for the old fans. It's actually the ILM guys that have done it... and with that in mind, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the backflipping Prime scene is indeed a bit of a nod to the original movie.

    Funny, not too long ago when the trailer came out a lot of you were jumping on this "Oh wow, it's a nod to the scene from the animated movie".

    But now it's time to act like a collective group of asses and try to clown the OP (although with some of you, it's no surprise at all)?

    Nice.

    Wether intentional or not, it just hits a familiar note with some people. Nothing wrong with that. :)
