    G4's Attack of the Show had a Transformers Trivia segment featured on today's program. Users submitted trivia questions via their website and resident Transformers fan Matt Kiel from the AOTS staff answered them. Those whose items are read on air receive a free Classics figure, and if you stump Matt, then you get entered to win a 20th Anniversary Prime, and a SDCC Exclusive Nemesis Prime.

    This will be a recurring feature (at least for next week), so you can still submit entries for them to read choose from. You can do that here.

    Make sure to post that you came from TFW2005.COM at the end of your submissions so that the folks at G4 know where you came from!

    *Note: You must sign up on their website, and confirm registration with a valid email. To post trivia questions, they require a valid physical address as well.

    Augh. You beat me to posting this. Curse you for being so efficient!

    I've already sent in two questions. Here's to hoping!

    I was flipping the channels and happened to turn to G4 right when the segment aired tonight. The guy missed the first question and quipped back "Well maybe that's his Japanese name" which was wrong as well. The second was pretty easy. I was amazed that the third question even made it to air it was so obscure... then the answer given on the card was wrong. =\

    It was Guiltar. To say Cyclonus was created by Quintesson science with the powers of Megatron and Optimus was just 100% incorrect.

    Yes. That one WAS Japanese continuity. Super obscure Japanese manga continuity even. :p

    I missed the first one.

    #2 was about which song was played when the Autobots were fighting the Junkions. (Dare to be stupid.)

    #3 was so obscure the guy didn't know it, and the host got it wrong. See above.

    I have to say, that was the strangest choice for fight music of all time.
    Weird Al FTW!

    I came up with an awesome trivia question, I've got a good feeling it'll be featured on the show. Could really use that Nemesis Prime...
    :cool:

    Why don't we all think of Questions together and submit them? We could brainstorm up some good ones, and whoever is eligable can submit them. It'll be a team effort.

    I submitted four; a comic question, a G1 toon question, a Japanese question, and a G1/BW question (bc I wasn't sure if BW was off limits totally). A buddy of mine from college is a guru with the comics and is gonna try to stump them with a few. He's getting married and money is tight, so I hope he gets him a Nemesis Prime.

    Wow, obscure enough that I wouldn't have been able to answer it.

    Okay, we've discussed how sarcastic TF Wiki is, but this made me laugh pretty hard: "Revealing his true intentions, Guiltar was gunning for leadership of the Decepticons, which even a concussed box turtle could have seen coming. But not Galvatron."

    And I submitted about a dozen questions, 1 about the Marvel G1 comics, and half a dozen or so about BWII and BWNeo, with questions about the manga versions as well; given that it's so seldomly discussed even here, or online at all, I have a feeling I may be one of about 3 people who could answer them.

    It does look cool; though Cybertron Galaxy Force Optimus Prime does look a bit like him.

    I have a few good questions from a trivia contest I held a few years back. Didn't get a lot of response, apparently they were hard. Too bad I'm in the wrong country.
