    Due to some drastic differences between G1 and Transformers Animated, or maybe just the evolution of Transformers canon as a whole, what are some of the more memorable things from G1 that you just can't see being referenced to in Animated? This is all hypothetical, so go nuts.

    A prime example would be this episode: The Burden Hardest to Bear - Transformers Wiki

    Scourge gets mutated when he uses the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. The closest thing we've got to that in Animated would be how the AllSpark was used by Megatron, and that didn't mutate him in the slightest.

    So, unless Sari has something to do with the Matrix of Leadership (you already know I'm staring at her chest) and there's some Kiss Players action and Sari ends up fusing with a Decepticon...can't see this kinda thing happening.

    Yeah, this.
    Other then that, it really is hard to think of something substantial that couldn't get a homage in some little way. After all, a homage doesn't mean they have to recreate the same thing. It can be something small, like kremzeek on the TV. Or Torq on BB's video game.

    Actually, weather some like it or not, the Headmaster from Animated is a Headmasters homage.

    I love that one. :D 

    It's all for the suttle lulz.

    Don't forget that Cancer is supposed to be making a cameo soon as well.

    With the way the writers use the character's names to reference their powers... Windbreaker and Erector are out.

    Dancitron - Specifically the scene where Soundwave and his cassettes are chillin in da cluuuuub and some kid offers Laserbeak a cracker. And then Laserbeak's eyes glow ominously as if to say either "I'll melt your optics from the inside, human" or "Mmmmmm... crackers..." (Okay, I know Auto-Bop and Megatron's Master Plan Pt. 2 are two different clubs, but they're close enough...)

    The episode where Powerglide has a crush on a girl so he smacks her around the whole episode. "I Kissed My Sweetie With My Fist" indeed. ALABAMA MAN, he's quick, he's strong, he's active...

    The episode where Michael B-- erm... some director uses the Autobots to make a movie with Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. And then makes them explode.

    The Rude Awakening of Optimus Prime (okay, not a real ep, but I thought it was real until I heard Prime swear.)

    Prime and Megatron having energy weapons in their arms.

    I'd have to say a gun shaped like G1 Megatron. Even tho it would be really cool to see Joey Slick running around with him.
