    And I noticed 1 thing I hadnt before: there's a millenium falcon that does a cameo appearance. Does anyone know if there are any other cameos?

    Been a while since I've watched it, but off the top of my head there's John Hurt and the Chestburster.

    Where'd you see the Falcon? At the end of the movie?

    Never noticed it in there, must be going blind.

    Was it on one of the Spaceballs merchandise that Scwartz was promoting?

    Ooh! Just remembered what I read in another thread recently. As well as the TFing ship/maid, TF's make another cameo appearance in Spaceballs! The merchandise is apparently TF stuff with Spaceballs stickers on top, supposedly you can see the TF's under the Spaceball images. I can't remember which thread I read this in, but it was on here somewhere.

    Going to have to check this out, as if I don't have enough to do this week.......

    Not even hidden under stickers! Spaceballs: The Coloring Book still has an uncovered Optimus Prime on the front :)  The sad thing is, I wasn't the one who noticed it, my wife pointed it out to me when it was on Comedy Central this afternoon!

    I noticed that the first time I saw Spaceballs at the local drive-in theater. Metroplex is also visible on the lunchbox but not quite as blatant as having Prime on Spaceballs the Coloring Book.

    The lunchbox is a common Transformers lunchbox. My buddy actually has one without the Spaceballs sticker on it that he bought clear back then.

    Mel brooks put the transformers stuff in the movie for his son who loved transformers.

    He also calls spaceball 1/ mega maid a transformer in the commentary track on the dvd.

    Heh nice that I noticed this thread just now. Got home from work and turned on the tv to see Spaceballs playing right now on Comedy Central.


    May the Schwartz be with you!
