    The designs of TFP have some aspects borrowed from other TF's from the past. Can you spot any?

    I've got:

    Optimus Prime- Pretty much everything from Movie Prime. Sword and gun included.

    Bumblebee- Same. Some things from Movie Bee

    Bulkhead- Alot from Animated Bulkhead

    Megatron- A mix between TFA and Movie 1 Megs, G1 bucket and fusion cannon. (Thanks to Chaos Donkey)

    Knockout- Head is similar to Terrorsaur

    Dreadwing- many sililarities with Depthcharge, including the head. (Thanks to Jetbolt on that one)

    Wheeljack- Head design is G1 Wheeljack. (Thanks to ChaosDonkey)

    Ratchet- SOme cues to G1 Ratchet. (Thanks to ChaosDonkey)

    Shockwave- many design aspects from DOTM Shockwave

    Have you found any?

    Dreadwing's head design screams Beast Wars Depth Charge to me.

    I completely forgot about Dreadwing and Depthcharge. That'll go on the list.

    Then there is Shockwave, who has some G1 and DOTM like features to him.

    other then the size of the gun, there are no more similarities between Prime and DOTM Shockwave.

    His chest and head design is similar to G1 and FOC

    Starscream draws cues from his Animated (the chin, the stiletto feet and the slender form), G1 (those subtle areas of red and his bombastic nature) and movieverse (colour, hunched posture, claws, chest) versions of himself. He also has an alt-mode similar to that of G1 Skydive.

    I feel like the word 'presumably' really needs to be in the thread title.

    Smokescreen: Color design looks like a mix of Jazz and Prowl's, vehicle mode looks like something Jazz would choose.

    Arcee seems to take cues from her movie version with aspects of Priss from Bubblegum Crisis with her helmet shaped like her G1 head but stylzed.

    Starscream's chest has Movie Screamer's face on it with the Movie styled claws,hunchback and voice while his face is like Animated's.

    Shockwave has a chest simmilar to WFC Optimus Prime.

    Atleast I swear it reminds me of it.
