    I was watching my copy of TFTAM today and noticed that in the TF1 Bay movie that the intial attack on brawl via Jazz is very familiar to when Kup grabbed Blitzwing by the barrel and gave him the smack down...am I crazy to say Bay may be pulling some scenes from TF the movie?

    I do believe this has been discussed before... all the nods to G1 in the 07 TF movie.

    Yeah I noticed the second I saw it. Just that this has been discussed, but I'm glad that Bay gave the Animators free play in what they could animate.

    It's on the extras, the Kup/Blitzwing scene right before the Jazz/Brawl scene.

    Yes we noticed that...the day when the movie came out. Sorry but that has been discussed numerous times before. I am not trying to sound like a jerk I am just letting you know it has been talked about a lot.

    There were many TF1 nods in the movie. Jazz's swan dive transformation, Ironhide referencing leakin' lubricants, Witwicky, the yellow VW, "You fail me yet again, Starscream."...

    Even I had noticed it as I was watching the original 1986 version and I thought to the Bay Film when Kup did a smack down on Blitzwing and in the Bay 2007 Jazz did exactly the same thing and I say its a G1 homage
