    After watching the first few episodes of G1 again, I have had a thought about the recent movies. Remember when Blackout attacks the base in TF 2007? This is reminiscent of the Decepticons' attack on the rocket base in More than Meets the Eye. Also, the downing of the Decepticons to the ocean floor at the end of MTMTE is very reminiscent of the end of TF 2007. Megatron's rise from the depths is also strangely familiar.

    My apologies if this has already been discussed or noticed before. I just thought it was kinda neat :)

    I don't mean completely based on the toons. We know that's untrue. But possibly inspired? In places?

    At least they might be little homages.

    It's too generic of an attack to likely be any kind of homage.

    But what about ending the very first G1 story-arc with the Decepticons left in the murky depths? Everyone thinks things are great and the threat is neutralized. The 2007 movie ended the exact same way. I believe that is more than coincidence.

    No. this fandom is too damn obsessed with homages.

    if the decepticons had a ship that crashed into the water, then you might have some ground. but this? no.

    the rocket base idea is completely absurd.

    This. I think we try to delve too deep into these things.

    There are indeed homages to More than meets the Eye

    Orci and Kurtzman state so in the bonus features disc of the first movie.

    Optimus' axe and Megatrons flail are two of them.

    Also i watch tomb raider last night and there is a scene when lara and her team went under water with them suba thing with lights..


    it looked like revenge of the fallene them going down to the bottom and it showed starfish and squids on thre surface bit like the cons going down for megatron...

    i want more homages to the other series, IF any more homages... are to be made.

    but if the scene said was a homage to g1, it would of been, the decepticons attack, autobots come later on, a 500 people die in the cross fire. and right when the decepticons are about to win, megatron MISSES optimus prime's head, at point blank range, then yells "retreat"

    now THAT would be a homage to g1. :lol
