    "One Shall Stand... One Shall Fall."

    That has to be the number one. Aside from that, did anybody else pick up on any little G1 (or otherwise) Easter Eggs, whether it be through speech, or action, or images (G1 Bumblebee at Bolivia's)? I wanted to try and get a list together, because I'm going to see the movie for a third time later this weekend, and I want to be on the lookout.

    If you don't want spoilers, don't read me.




    "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings."
    Starscream's last scene (during the credits, figure it out.. lol)
    There's a Yellow VW beetle looking old and ugly next to Bumblebee at the used car lot (which Barnie Mac tries to sell to Sam).
    That thing Megatron says to Starscream (you'll know it)
    Brawl's real name
    The Autobots' personalities (hard to tell until you think about it... the new voices and appearances make it a little hard to tell at first)

    Uhh... all I can think of off the top of my head.

    "Decepticons, attack!"

    Surprisingly it's the Autobots that yell out "RETREAT!"

    Actually, Brawl's real name was a mistake...his real name is really Brawl at least that is what Michael Bay said.

    christopher - I really can't tell its an axe...but cool find!

    My fave moments:

    1. Optimus and Megs calling each other out! Optimus - "Megatron"! Megatron - "Prime"! Gives me goosebumps.

    2. "One shall stand, one shall fall" would have been my fave if it wasn't off screen.

    3. "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings" - again a pity its off screen.

    4. Optimus "axe-sword" and Megatron's "mace" a tribute to MTMTE episode 2.

    5. The dam where Megs was initially stored...again reminded me of the dam in MTMTE episode 2.

    1. I loved that bit too. Totally awesome.

    5. Oh yeah the whole dam thing is meant to be a throwback to MTMTE.

    You get the feeling they watched the cartoon for inspiration and never got past the third episode.

    What about Prime excitedly calling Bumblebee "my old friend?"

    Its just one word away from "my little friend" or whatever he used to say :p

    possibly. I mean when you think about it yes the cartoon was corny but MTMTE was a great pilot and set-up and didnt come up too corny. Erase Sparkplug and Spike and you will be fine

    I'm a huge fan of G1...the premise of it was so straight forward...evil robots wants earth for its large energy resources and good robots trying to stop them. Along the way, there are plot devices such as combiners and what not.

    From all of these easter eggs, I can see that the movie did it best to go back to its G1 roots. Sure I don't like some of the TF designs but I appreciate the effort.

    As a long time TF fan, that's all I want...effort from the movie producers, recognition and some homage of G1. There have been better TF series since G1 but G1 was the one that started it all.

    I can't believe no one got the minor reference

    When Sam was chased by Barricade ..."Oh shit!" and he said it a couple times.

    what's funny is I found an old issue of Wizard magazine and it was talking about Transformers and it had some quotes that they were predicted would or wouldn't be in the movie and "oh shit!" had like a 1 in million chance, so I thought that was pretty funny.

    Ebay:
    The convoy through the desert. That would have been a great time for an orchestral update of the original theme, but... alas.
