    About 15 mins in when jack and smokescreen was looking for an alt mode from up on the rock, right after ss says constructicon watch the "smokescreen" trail behind the car going right to left. Awesome writing!

    I just like it that the old truck made another appearance. Seems like that's the 'go-to' vehicle for this series as far as non-TF's are concerned.

    That's not really a writing thing, but kudos to the animators for that brief forshadowing.

    Wait up, so that ol truck, which I assume you all think will be KUP, will he be KUP??

    I only buy onscreen characters and have no clue if Kup and Rumble will be in the show.

    Also, Constructicons...I really hope that is forshadowing now that we know they exist in the PRIME universe.

    Why would you assume that? o.o. The truck has been in numerous episodes at this point, and only serves the purpose to be a slow vehicle on the road or a piece of wreckage in the background. It's not going to be a TF...don't think anyone thinks it will be either.

    Constructicon name dropping was awesome...but seems Smokescreen was the ideal character to lift a lot of hate. A lot of the things people were complaining about was explained/revealed by Smokescreen, so here's hoping for some more big stuff in the future. At first couldn't see PRIME going on TOO long, but now I think it cna be a pretty long running show, if it follows a certain track, but it has to start moving into space sometime in the future, unless they reveal somethign else about EARTH that makes it so special

    Yup, that woke me up! This show opened up quite a few doors. Imagine all those prisoners on that transport ship making it here. :)

    If you meant the old truck, I was like "Hey, that thing came around again!"

    If you meant the cement truck, I really hope this means we might get some Constructicons in the future.

    That old pick up truck is the "Pizza Planet Truck" of the Prime series. It always turns up now and then, a good little Easter egg (if u can call it one)

    And I also really do hope that the mention on constructacons is foreshadowing. Aren't we supposed to be getting a combiner for prime ? I think we are getting grimlock aswell ? I could be wrong and misread what I saw so could I get some confirmation :)

    Yeah, just realized what he was talking about myself. The red car has a 'smokescreen' coming from behind it, liek G1 Smokescreen used to do, I guess...but eh.

    I thought the OP was saying that the alt mode Smokescreen eventually scanned appeared in that scene and I've been straining my eyes to see that for a while now.

    Upon this discovery of the red car, I must say, I don't see the big deal or why it was so amazing. If the car was maybe...blue and sporty looking (looked like g1 smokescreen), then maybe
