    IMO the humor is this movie looks alright better than the last three, but then again how are we suppose to know that there are errors or references when the movie isn't even out yet.

    So why not create the thread when it would be relevant?

    Seriously, what's the point? Until the movie is released, the ONLY things that this thread can have are posts like this one where you're asked why you're effectively spamposting or off-topic posts since nobody's seen the damn film yet!

    Finally one of these for AOE! Okay I'll start:



    There are numerous references to Transformers animated:

    - Lockdown the Bounty Hunter shows up decapacitates and takes Optimus Prime just like that scene in Animated where Lockdown comes and Stuns then steals Optimus.

    -A human scientist is working on a severely damaged Megatron (called Galvatron in AOE, though)

    -An ancient Japanese-themed TF is included in the main Autobot cast

    -Hound highly resembles Bulkhead

    -Lockdown is seen with his hook and chainsaw weapons. He also has his own ship.



    Miscellaneous:

    -Hound has teeth that resemble bullets. And a helmet that resembles an US Army one.

    -The Dinobots (and Optimus Prime) have a heavy medieval theme.

    -etc.

    Some things I have noticed;

    -Little drone that captured Prime and Tessa is a resized Ark from DOTM.
    -Lockdown has his car headlights on his back but they disappear at one point and we never see them again.
    -Strafe basically has Prime Soundwave's visor face in robot mode.
    -Dread SUV is in one shot that lasts 2 seconds, which is when him, Galvatron and Stinger are going after Autobots.
    -Sentinel's disfigured head is also in the same room as Megatron's. But blink and you'll miss it.
    -Most of the soundtrack is just copy pasted from DOTM, not changed at all. For example, the score that played during the wolves on wires is "Trapped in building/ Falling down side".
    -The music from the theatrical trailer is also present during some Lockdown scenes, and the score that played during Dinobot's arrivial was in one of the tv spots.

    I'll add more when I make up my mind.

    -Stinger
    -Trax vehicons (red, white, black)
    -Junk and Heap
    -Nizzi's old concept
    -A yellow constructicon looking bot. (mclaren?)
    -Two headed Shockwave.

    Best joke of the movie: the car Cade & friends were in NOT exploding when it fell back on the ground after being lift up by the ship, just producing a tiny flame on the hood instead.

    Came in to say that!

    It's missing its distinctive red "Prime" helmet that Megatron kicked off of him, but that beard tells all.

    -I don't believe Drift or Crosshairs are referred to by name in dialogue in the movie, but during the scene where KSI is tracking the Autobots after the raid, their names are visible on the monitor.
    -Attinger has playing cards with the Transformers' faces on them as sort of a checklist of who's been taken down. Ironhide's card is crossed off, while Bumblebee's isn't. Couldn't see any others.
    -As mentioned, Sentinel's head (complete with battle damage / missing Prime helmet) can be seen very briefly. Joshua also mentions them drawing from "these two" heads, but only Megatron's is seen in that shot.
    -This wasn't hard to spot, but the My Little Pony joke was golden.
    -The Dinobots' heads are actually spot on with the toys. I was surprised, given how simple / solid those heads were.
    -Leadfoot had a different voice in this film for his appearance (couldn't tell if it was a different VA or DiMaggio doing a different voice, to differentiate him from the similar-sounding Crosshairs)
    -Optimus suddenly has jet boots at the end.
    -Scorn is referred to as Spike by Crosshairs at the end, and is the only Dinobot to be named (though perhaps Crosshairs meant it as a nickname / joke)
    -A lot of transformations happen off-screen in this movie. I don't believe Hound or Crosshairs ever transform on screen, and Drift only transforms on-screen into the helicopter, not the Bugatti. Also, Optimus and Galvatron both transform off-screen before their fight.
    -Hound seems to have been fully realized very early in the development of the film. He's the only one of the foursome who the humans actively interact with and refer to by name, even describing him physically, and several scenes are designed with him in mind. Crosshairs' big interaction moment is his explaining the gun controls to Cade and Shane.

    Crosshairs is mentioned by name once, but not Drift.

    Also, KSI's full name is mentioned once but i missed it.

    EDIT: Apperantly it's ''Kinetic Solutions Incorporated'' but I remember reading something shorter.
