How many can you remember?
The ones that was in it were painfully obvious and out of place. The ones that weren't are for the most part accidental or fans wanting to see an homage that isn't there (Like how Sam was supposed to be a modern spike...when he was in fact a modern take on Marty McFly according to Bay)
How many threads do you make per day?
Other than that I've got nothing.
Transformation noises and names.
one shall stand one shall fall in tf1
Transformers (film) - Transformers Wiki
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (film) - Transformers Wiki
Transformers: Dark of the Moon (film) - Transformers Wiki

Those who refuse to see the references say so just because they dont't like the movies
In TF1, when Sam says to Mikaela:
"There's more to you than meets the eye".
in DOTM the copier playing more than meet the eye theme (and yes I know everyone already knows it)
Fans still complain about both, if that's not a G1 reference I don't know what is.
This is pretty much the only way to sum up the thread. You can also check out the stickied thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...s-jokes-references-hard-spot-things-dotm.html
Otherwise, OP, you're going to get people posting what they think are references, only to have others argue that said reference isn't a reference (or vice-versa). Read through those lists and you'll come across plenty of references - be them intentional or not.
Optimus, Jazz, Ratchet, Ironhide, Bumblebee
Optimus, Jazz, Ravage, Shockwave (G1 modernized)
The Sun Harvester (Solar Needle)
The plot to DOTM (Megatrons Master Plan, and Ultimate Doom)
The transformation sound
Photo copier playing 'more than meets the eye'
A newspaper clipping of G1 Shockwave (though that may only be an easter egg)
I'm sure I'm missing a few. There are a lot.
Actually I think this is a good thread. I view this thread as educational. I mean how many people are there who insist that the movies are not in anyway inspired by G1?
What do the trolls always complain about? 'This isn't G1!'
True as it may be; but the movies are influenced by G1 in someway, shape, or form.
Throughout the movies no one calls out 'Beast Mode'
There are no Minicons, or Cyber planet keys; so most of the influences stem from G1
There were Minicons in ROTF, they formed Ravage's minion Reedman.
Eeeeh, that's a stretch at best. Minicons are power boosters for the larger Transformer. Like super charged Micromasters. Reedman was more like a deployer within a deployer.
autobots roll out for last time
