    I searched and could not find a thread on this.

    This is the list I've got so far. Any other references?

    Two references of "More then meets the Eye"
    VW next to Bumblebee
    Transforming Sound in a few Places
    Starscream and Megatron banter for a minute (My favorite scene. Just loved it. It wasn't much but it was enough)
    "Freedom is the Right of All Sentient Beings"
    "Roll Out!"
    "One Shall Stand One Shall Fall" (Best line in the film. There was applause at this in my theater)
    Sam's Dog takes a Piss on Ironhide and he says "His Lubricants are Leaking."
    Cullen as Prime and Charles Adler's involvement inthe film (He was Silverbolt)
    Sam's mom calls her husband "Spark" at one point.
    Megatron's Whip and Optimus' Sword (Axe in the original)
    Final Fight takes place at a Dam(Like in MTMTE.) though it moves to a city. I wouldn't usually put this in but the next one is another major one that again relates to MTMTE.
    Decepticon corpses are tossed in the sea, like MTMTE.
    And Jazz and Prime's Battle Modes Look like the G1 versions.


    Anything else? I really like how these little nods to the fans are placed in the movie.

    i guess jazz himself is a G1 reference. jazz was pretty much the most "hip" and earthly(?) of all the autobots in the show, and that's what he was in the movie. i thought he was really cool. but for some reason, a lot of people didnt like him. i have no idea why though, i thought he was awesome.

    Prime still had the pipes on his shoulders(top of shoulder, not side like cartoon) and he still had the windows as his chest.

    Seriously, you can't be faulted dude...I guess the movie has been generally a crowd pleaser and everyone is so excited that they post their thoughts, feelings and questions! XD
