    looks like G1 Ravage, doesn't it? But this massive "easter egg" of a Cameo is NOT in "The Transformers'. Believe-it-or-don't, this is from MY LITTLE PONY, in the episode "Escape from Catrina'. It blew me away the first time I saw it.

    Cool. I would never have expected something like that in a My Little Pony cartoon. I never knew there WAS a My Little Pony cartoon!

    that can't be ravage. It's gotta be a fake. The REAL Ravage would've EATEN the little ponies.

    Looks like a Voltron lion to me. I do remember the My Little pony cartoon or at least an animated movie. My sister loved them so we watched it as kids. I rember it having Eartha Kit as a voice of the villan; a cat wicth like character.

    Escape from Catrina? So the Ponies visited New Orleans during Hurricane season and have to evacuate?

    I'm so going to hell for that one...

    My Little Pony is a Hasbro property so, why not?

    That was going to be my response too

    It's just like how the same Geraldo Rivera look alike guys appears in Jem and the Holograms, GI JOE and maybe Transformers. Although I've never looked at Transformers that closely

    Asks the man who collects the toys, watches the cartoon and most likely owns the '86 movie in one format or another ;)

    His name was Hector Ramirez. And he apparantly appeared in all the Marvel/Sunbow cartoons of the 80's :lol 

    People like to use this as "Fanon" to say that all those shows 1)Jem and the Holograms 2)GI JOE 3)Transformers and 4)Inhumanoids were in the same continuity

    It's same reason why My Little Pony doll showed up in the Transformers trailer, and also the cameo of Furby in the movie. Hasbro = product placement!

    maybe the animators only had ravage as a refference and used that for the statues. And besides, I doubt that there was much energon where the ponies lived.:D

    Well, I'm a girl and I used to watch MLP and I never realized that Ravage shot before. Good eye. But I do think the animation company probably draws big cats the same for all their shows. Still, a nice find.

    The thing is that Ravage would be blockier than a regular cat, since he is a robot that turns into a cassette. So it seems likely that either A. as Katamari said, Ravage was the only reference they had on short notice or B. this is a deliberate reference :D
