    "Brains's alternate mode is a laptop computer (Lenovo ThinkPad Edge). This is a tribute to the Autobot Blaster, who took the alternate mode of a laptop (Toshiba Satellite Qosmio); Brains also pays homage to Blaster's minion Rewind when he tells Director Mearing he knows all about the solar system (Rewind is known for spouting useless trivia)."
    Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) - Trivia - IMDb


    It sounds reasonably accurate to me. Anyway, maybe they SHOULD have cast Blaster in DOTM, an ethically faithful character similar to Jazz would have probably smoothed things a bit (instead of some original characters who come in for immediate flak). But instead he could be more hardcore: have him do the stuff Frenzy did like sneaking into classified areas, hacking info and doing ninja stuff. What do you think?

    In related news, Dino is a homage to Alan because they are both red.

    Brains should've been Blaster, Dino and Que names should've been recycled and replaced with their faithful names Mirage and Wheeljack.

    I don't think Brains was a deliberate reference to Blaster, but I think he COULD have been, and I think I would have enjoyed that. Big portable stereos like that just aren't seen much anymore though.

    In the trivia it says Sentinel Prime was supposed to be yellow. He would look kind of cool in yellow.

    He was yellow in the announcement trailer, before Bay ultimately choose Sentinel Prime to be red. I prefer the red coloring, makes Sentinel look more intimidating and regal.

    Oh yeah. He could look cooler in red. I guess it suits his rank. I guess since red and blue are the two Autobot theme colors it makes sense.

    Sentinel is red,
    Optimus is blue,
    This poem doesn't rime,
    Now give me your FACE!

    Learnt it from the TF wiki.

    Sentinel was yellow to conceal his identity, and to stop people from connecting him to the big red firetruck being called Sentinel.

    these poems are terrible,
    they really should stop.

    even though he can't talk.

    Soundwave's been muted
    because he's stone-dead
    It happened when bumblebee
    vaporized his head.

    SGTSound and Aernaroth battle,
    to put the other in their place.
    But all Optimus Prime says
    is "Give me your face."
