    I've noticed that ROTF Megatron resembles Beast Wars Megatron, and DOTM Sentinal Prime somewhat looks like Robots In Disguise Optimus Prime. Thoughts? Any others I missed?

    Uhhhh, Sentinel looks like RiD Prime ONLY because they have a similar alt mode. The bot modes don't look similar at all.

    Megatron also does not resemble anything that has come before in Transformers. You are grasping at straws.

    I could see the resemblece between the two Megatrons but not Sentinal with RiD Optimus. But that's just me.

    ROTF Megatron's legs are based on the Transtech design.

    You could argue Sideswipe and Transtech Cheetor as well or Ironhide and G1 Trailbreaker

    Uh huh. If you haven't noticed, pretty much every Megatron has all of the above that you listed, so it's not special.

    Jetfire's Blackbird vehicle mode very very very vaguely reminds me of G1 Jetfire's vehicle mode. Soundwave and Jazz have their visors (though you can see Soundwave's eyes behind his visor). Not much to go on.

    Now, trying to list later designs inspired by the movies (Animated, WFC, Prime, etc). THERE is a worthwhile and lengthy thread.

    With such HUGE number of non-movie characters in the TF universe. similarity tends to happen compared to movie bots freshly rendered off the server farm.

    I dont see any explicit design similarity from the comparison pics posted by the thread starter, except for maybe... the colors.
