    I was watching some old episodes on DVR today and came across a 2 part episode titled Megatrons Master Plan. He convinces Berger that the Autobots are evil and has them banished from Earth.Now knowing this
    Dylan works with the Decepticons and the Autobots get banned from Earth...Sounds like one of the main plot points is straight out of this G1 episode.
    Thoughts? If this been discussed before then just report so this thread can be deleted. Thanks.

    Wasn't there an episode in which
    Earth is transported to Cybertron, so the Decepticons can use the Earth's resources
    , just like in the movie?

    And, IIRC, they used a
    space-bridge
    in that too. Guess you can't say Bay isn't Geewun...

    No kidding. So many little connections that it isn't hard to tell where the main roots of the movieverse come from.

    Indeed.

    Can't forget the inspiration for Megatron being frozen on Earth, good old Skyfire/Jetfire.

    We should compile a list of all the references to the G1 and other versions of the continuity to see how many references the movies have used do far

    Yeah, it seems these plots are pretty much lifted directly from G1.

    Don't forget Optimus and Megatron's dam fight in MTMTE Pt. 2. Pretty obviously the inspiration for hiding the All Spark (ie, Energon) in the Hoover Dam.

    Yeah, definitely lots of G1 homages played in the movieverse.
