    I was just watching this episode, and frame by frame I could tell DOTM was at least partially inspired by this episode. Autobots look like bad guys, Authorities banish them from Earth, and Decepticons try to blow them up on their shuttle.
    Guy in wheelchair (the computer kid) watches them leave, etc.

    I'm sorry if this has been discussed before, but I was like *duh omg*

    Yeah, it took elements from both Megatron's Master Plan and The Ultimate Doom. If you haven't yet, check out those episodes too, pretty cool.

    I'm copying and pasting from one of my previous posts from another thread.

    Though Bayformers may not be G1, Bayformers is heavily referencing it.

    Optimus Prime, Jazz, Ravage, and to a lesser extent, even Long Haul. Though over complicated and splintery;those four characters are heavily based on their G1 counter parts. Prime, Jazz, and Ravage physically resemble what they looked like in G1.

    Also DOTM's plot was pretty much 3 G1 episodes wrapped up in one movie. So to say Bayformers had nothing in common with g1 is not accurate.

    Bayformers does not have Minicons, no cyber planet keys, and no one yells out 'beast mode'. Plus the last name 'Witwicky' is Spikes last name from G1. So Bayformers primarily uses both original ideas, and G1 references.

    The scene where Megatron sits on the Lincoln throne in Washington DC is also G1 inspired as Megatron does this in the G1 episode Atlantis Arise.

    Fans have nothing to complain about.

    Except for the names Q and Dino. But I, being young as I am, had never experienced G1 except for the movie, which I thought was exceptionally bad. Now I'm getting into G1.
