    While I was looking at the new information of DOTM and then eventully saw it I've noticed a lot of it could have elements of TFA sort of. For example

    DOTM Sentinal Prime has design aspects taken trom the TFA versions of Ultra Magnus and Alpha Trion

    DOTM Soundwave also has design elements from his TFA incarnation.

    Both versions of Megatron had plans for Earth and Cybertron with the Space Bridge Technolige

    DOTM Optimus's Jetpack does bring elements of the TFA versions jetpack

    Both of the Movie's and TFA Season 3 Finale took place in a city with a Decepticon invasion in the area which both Chicago and Detroit reside.

    I could be wrong though and the Movie is really based on two episodes of G1. However it's just a thought and the fact that Takara tried to bring TFA into the movie countinuity(though it was really for marketing reasons) is something to think about the similarities more. So what are your thoughts? Do you think it's stupid or do you think it's an intresting thought at least?

    Well, the Space Bridge/Cybertron thing was from a G1 episode...And I'll refer the other stuff to people who actually watch Animated :p

    I doubt Bay and company know or care enough about TFA to sneak in homages.

    Bay said he DID studie the mythos and the film is based on two episode of the G1 show. That sounds like a homage to me.

    Actually that was a fan picture that came AFTER the film came out but good guess though. If you looked at DOTM Sentinal Prime's design it does have elements of TFA Ultra Magnus a bit.

    You Forgot One More Thing, Sentinel Prime is the name of Optimus's predecessor in many continuities, and in this instance, he continues his predecessor's legacy of being a giant jerk.

    By 'study' he probably meant 'briefly skim through one or two episodes of a cartoon series I don't give a shit about barring its capacity to make me money'.

    I think a lot of the elements DOTM has in common with Animated are things that have an even deeper history in the transformers mythos.

    Yeah THAT"S certainly true!:lol 

    So at least he didn't thow it out the window either! I know he's not a Speiberg or J.J.Abhrems,but honsetly he's no Ull Bowle either! At least DOTM is a MAJOR improvement over ROTF either way!

    Nice. I love these crossover-thing art pictures dealios.

    This. Plus, I'd wager that the "mythos" of which Bay and the writers refer to is more so the Generation One cartoon and comics. Maybe Beast Wars. But I sincerely doubt they studied Animated.

    One. We are talking about Animated homages only. Two. When he was sent to "Transformers school", Animated was still being made. I doubt they talked about things that hadn't been aired yet.

    i've seen all the Animated episodes, at least twice lol (yes i actually love it!) ... can't say there are any connections there. definetly G1 in DOTM, but TFA is a stretch.
