    Hi guys,

    Sorry if this was brought up already. But while listening to the Michael Bay's commentary on the DVD....he stated there was a variety of little nods though out the film, like his example of Takara Sushi. After that I kept a look out, it was the first time I noticed the word "Energon" on the license plate of the van that Megatron grabs and tosses. Are there any others?

    Easter eggs? How about the scene where Jazz redirects Devastator's canon? It's a lot like the scene in the G1 movie where Kup redirects Blitzwing's canon.

    "TAKARA" is the name of one of the local restaurants in the streets of the final battle scene.

    Does the fact the car next to Bumblebee at Bobby Bolivia's Car lot was a yellow Volkswagon Beetle count?

    Yep, both the beetle and the Jazz tank evasion are homages to G1 as stated in the special features. They even show the Kup fotage and the Jazz scene, an exact recreation of it. They both drive towards the tank (In both cases, Blitzwing/Brawl) transform and leap on top of them and redirect the tank barrel.

    And both the Kup and Jazz scenes kick @$$.

    "More then Meets the eye" could be considered an easter egg/ homage to G1. They say it multiple times.

    Got afew more. Ofcourse "One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall", Megatron saying "You fail me yet again, Starscream" (?) could be a homage. And Frenzy popping out of Barricade's chest before the BB fight as a shout out to Soundwave

    Anybody notice the street names where the battle between Prime and Megs starts up? I know one of them was Fortress, but couldn't make out the cross street. If it's Maximus, I'm gonna track down Michael Bay and give him a big, wet, sloppy kiss.

    It's just Fort. And it's a real street, not an EE.

    Bay's cameo can count. Also, not an easter egg, but the guy in the drivers seat of the S7 van getting hit in the head with the rubber gun was funny.

    Just never caught that... I'm not online as much as I would like to, and I simply don't have the time to leisurely go through every single thread there is.
