    Did you notice the subtle hints they threw in the movie in honor of the original Transformer toys/cartoon....

    1. When the kid went to buy his first car with his dad, the camaro(Bumblebee) parked itself next to a faded yellow VW Beetle. Which we all know was the original Bumblebee!

    2. The Movie version decepticon Frenzy transformed into a small boombox radio, and as any Transformer fan knows, Frenzy was originally a cassette robot for Soundwave, who was a Boombox!

    Any other hints i missed?

    Yeah, they have lots of little tributes peppered through out the movie. theres a scene were jazz transforms really closely to his G1 counter-part. I'm sure there more.

    hehe, yeah, this has been talked about extensively.

    And Soundwave was a microcassette player, not a boombox. Blaster looked more like a boombox. Still cool though, made me think of Soundwave.

    Oh, and welcome to the forums.

    we could all pull out a lot of these,but i also like the subtler ones myself...

    "i live to serve,almighty megatron"with starscream practically rolling his eyes as he said it was nice,but the big one for me was the variations on the g1 transform noise.

    welcome aboard.

    They also had Optimus swinging from the bridge rafters when Bumblebee was captured. This is in reference to his Beast Wars ape mode.

    Yeah, even some character lines where a tribute as well. One of the more famous is Prime going "One shall stand, on shall fall!"

    I like the more simple "Decptions! Attack!" that Megatron yelled during the city gunfight.

    The toy for soundwave was a microcassete player, but there were times in G1 where he appeared to be the size of a boombox. It always confused me a little when I was a kid.

    Other nods to G1:

    At the end of this day one shall stand and one shall fall.
    Also, Prime's energon axe\sword.

    And, it has been his motto on the toy for decades, but I don't think I have ever heard it spoken.

    Freedom is the right of all sentient beings.
    I got chills when he said that.
