    I'm sure some of the older fans notice the story elements from Megatron's Master Plan and Ultimate Doom?

    Do you guys think this was by design or a coincidence? I was pleased to see a darker version of those two episodes minis. I even leaned over to my fiancé and said , " I wonder if they will show cybertron in the sky".

    I'd like to think it was intentional, but I could see how they could be simply coincidental. However, Megatron jacking Lincoln's seat was a huge throwback to "Atlantis, Arise!" and had to be a reference.

    during the whole movie I was saying "this is from G1!". I didn't realize the Megatron's Master Plan influence until today, but definitely the episode where Cybertron is brought down to Earth. I thought it was interesting how that particular influence was played out in a live-action film, being that it was from G1.

    Yeah megatons master plan had them being kicked out of earth, but instead of Starscream blowing them out of the sky, they get sent to the sun. As soon as the cons think that the autobots are dead they unleash hell. There is even a relationship with the human who sides with the cons being approached by Soundwave and Laserbeak.

    In some essences the movie franchise is a Lot more like G1 than most fans of either would ever admit.

    SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!






    The deaths were actually pretty accurate as well, Ironhide and WheelJack died in the 86 movie and so did Starscream and Megs. To me they basically set up the movie-verse for G2. Carly and Sam have Daniel, Megs becomes Galvatron, The autobots build Autobot city and the moon bases. Hell even Shockwave supposedly died when Unicron attacks Cybertron. Bring on the TF4 with Springer, Magnus, Hot Rod, and of course KUP!!!!!

    I've been saying that all along but everyone's too wrapped up in the "it's not G1" nonsense.

    I loved the Star Trek references in the movie too, like how the recent movie or maybe an old episode featuring Spock was playing in the background in one scene and the quote from the Wrath of Khan about "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" spoken by Leonard Nimoy himself again before his character dies.
