    Not a fan of the show, but I happened to catch a preview for the 5/11 episode of FOX's "Breaking In" and caught a glimpse of a Dinobots T-shirt that also happens to be an exclusive shirt from 80stees.com.

    I don't have fancy-schmancy DVR so I tried grabbing a quick pic with my digital camera. Didn't turn out that good, but you can at least see it's the same shirt.

    I also noticed while watching the episode that the same character who was wearing the Dinobots shirt also has a desk full of 80's toys -- including a giant Voltron figure. I think I spotted a couple other TF toys as well, but none of the shots are long enough to spot what they are. (Maybe you DVR'ers can help?)

    If you're curious to see this for yourself, the episode uploads to Hulu on 5/12:

    Breaking In - Full Episodes and Clips streaming online - Hulu

    Next week's episode has the same character dressed in a Voltron costume.

    Also noticed in the production logo at the end of the episode there's a vintage photo of a kid with a whole bunch of 80's toys -- including G1 figures -- spread out in front of him. I took a pic from the end credits on Hulu, but the photo itself in the logo is a bit out of focus so I can't ID any of the toys.

    It's a pretty good show with plenty of Star Wars references as well. Too bad Fox cancelled this and a bunch of shows just yesterday:banghead:

    After watching this episode, I'm not surprised. I didn't think it was very good. It was like a mash-up of Leverage, Chuck, Big Bang Theory, and Family Guy (flashback gags and pop culture references galore).

    FOX is really good at canceling shows. I think they make them just to cancel them. I worked as a an extra and photo double for Richard Schiff for the very short-lived FOX paranormal drama "Past Life" and it got canceled before the 4th episode even aired.

    Matrix help us if they ever do a Transformers series. It will get dumped halfway through the pilot.
