    Ok. I am sure there is another thread that covered this somewhere. I tried looking but I didn't know exactly how to look for it. Anyway, I'll get straight into what i want to bring up.

    Chromia turns into a motorbike = land
    Nautica turns into a submarine = sea
    Windblade turns into a VTOL Jet = sky

    This is pretty awesome and I only caught on because Nautica turns into a water based vehicle mode which is a rarity these days since water isn't really a thing transformers really worry about much (except for lately).

    Are there any more "I see what you did there IDW!" moments similar to this? Also did anyone else notice this or think that, though novel, it's kind of interesting?

    :eek:  yay for lame threads.

    Huh, haven't even thought about it, but yeah, I think it's awesome that Nautica's a marine vehicle too!

    I only wish Chromia was a four-wheeler.

    More than two actually.

    We have seen Riptide, Nautica and Waverider, and Aquabat and Aquastar have been mentioned in dialogue.

    I don't think I would classify Ultra Magnus as humble. He's not arrogant but he's not humble. Also I'd say your a little grasping at straws for that analogy.

    I'm pretty sure this has probably been brought up, but

    Pharma - Medicine
    Star Saber - Religion
    Tyrest - Law

    This analogy is actually pretty sick!

    WHAAATTT!! I never noticed that one! Good one! Cornerstones of society :eek:  minus government.

    Speaking of government, this: Bumblebee, Metalhawk and Starscream. How would they be properly labeled? I couldn't make up my mind.

    Well we already had the government go wrong with the corrupt Senate, and as an extension of that you could say Senator Shockwave, ironically though since he wanted to expose the corruption in the first place and ended up trying to destroy the universe.

    The one that always got me was:

    Chromedome - memory - alteration, deletion, observation
    Rewind - memory - storage, accumulation, archiving

    Their combined name is CD-RW which is also short for Rewritable Compact Disc - a form of memory storage that combines some of their skills pertaining to memory. Rewind stores memories; Domey can rewrite them...
