FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT YET SEEN THE MOVIE, SPOILERS BELOW I thought it would be good to have a thread on errors, jokes, references & hard to spot things in Dark of the Moon I'll try and keep this first post updated so you can see them all in one post PLEASE REMEMBER SOME OF THESE ARE FOR FANS WHO HAVE NO G1 EXPERIENCE & ARE NEW TO TRANSFORMERS! Here's what I noticed : At the very start of the film during the Cybertron battle scenes on the far right of the screen you see a huge 4 legged Transformer It's a giant Ravage model Sams car has the same mirror ball & Bee-Otch air fresher that Bumblebee had inside him in TF1 When the Decepticons land from the Spacebridge to the right of the screen you see one scan a garbage trash truck & turn into it. As it drives off you see 2 identical large red fire trucks inplying they are also Decepticons The Government sending the Autobots away from Earth on a shutttle is straight from a G1 cartoon episode called "Megatrons master Plan" A giant Spacebridge to bring Cybertron to earth is straight from a G1 cartoon episode called "The Ultimate Doom" Primes axe he uses against Megatron at the end is from the original G1 pilot cartoon "More than meets the eye" The white private jet you see in several shots beind Sam & the government woman has 4500X on it, This is the same number Blackout had on him in TF1 and it is also the number of Micheal Bays private jet (It may even BE his jet) When Bumblebee transformers for the last time at the end of the film he clearly makes the G1 cartoon transforming noise (Laserbeak also makes a slower version of the sound when he transforms from photocopier to bird) When the humans are being shot by the Decepticons watch for ones humans skull to fly off and bounce down the street When the Autobots are "captured" during the final battle it's Barricade the Police car from TF1 that is restraining Bumblebee. You see him for the next few minutes Sentinel primes line "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" is homage to the same line spoken by Spock in Star Trek 2. Spock and Sentinel are both played by Leonard Nimmoy CISCO have a lot of product placement in the film, several times you will see Cisco units with HUGE Cisco logos on that they wouldn't usually have. Also EVERY computer & monitor in the film is lenovo again with name badges on they wouldn't have. (Dylan does have an ipad though) Anybody else spot anything? Update 1 Aernaroth added: Another Spock reference is Wheelie and Brains watching Star Trek and saying "this is the one where he goes crazy", which is some pretty nasty foreshadowing. Carly is a reference to Spike's female love interest in the G1 series. The dude that played Buzz Aldrin was ACTUALLY Buzz Aldrin, space pioneer. Dino the Ferrari is a reference to the son of Ferrari's originator, IIRC. Sentinel Prime's "rust gun" may be a reference to cosmic rust, any of the various transformers who have carried corrosion-based weaponry over the years, or simply a coincidence. Ironhide's death is likely something of a reference to the 1986 TF movie. Update 2 - Some new stuff I noticed on 2nd viewing Soundwave is missing the Mercedes badge from his chest during the camp scene, probably to hide his reveal later The giant walker on cybertron at the very start is a giant Ravage model When the cons first arrive before the garbage truck scan you see a con transform into a white police car whilst jumping to the floor, look dead center of the screen to see I *think* igor is a long haul head, Have a look Sentinels "helmet" is identical shape to Optimus's - Look at the sides, it gets knocked off Sentinel by Megatron at the end - Does this mean Optimus's comes off? As Sentinal lines up to cut off primes head he says "there can be only one" - reference to Highlander movies Finally, and I think I may start a debate here. I think BARRICADE kills Que. It happens so fast but look to the right of the screen as Que is fatally shot, I'm SURE it was Barricade! UPDATE 3 Saw the film for a third time - Noticed some new stuff When Sams parents first arrive in thier motorhome thier car is NOT on a trailer behind the motorohome. It's just parked up very close to the RV. The trailer suddenly appears under it when they walk up to it In the same alleyway when Soundwave is parked up during Sam/Carly's fight, Soundwaves headlights ARE faintly coming on and off / flickering Sams boss is wearing yellow socks when on the yellow floor to match Carlys clothes change loads between shots, both in damage and dirtiness Dutch's neckbrace disappears & re-appears allot at films end And 100% BARRICADE KILLS QUE! UPDATE 4 UTF posted : Part of BB's speech "I will always be your friend" to Sam used a snippet of Spock's "I am and shall always be your friend." from Star Trek. . The Ark's turret is shaped like Omega Supreme's head. The Datsun's bee ornament says "BZZ-OTCH" instead of "BEE-OTCH" - CONFIRMED Fit for Natalie posted: The Autobot ship maintained by the Wreckers is called the Xantium, which was the name of the Wreckers starship from IDW Publishing's Stormbringer miniseries. I was quite pleased by this exceedingly obscure reference.
