    So which toys do you think are/should be obvious homages.

    I think Dark Scorponok must be an homage to Black Zarak

    Huh. One second I'm watching ESPN talk about post-Lockout Free Agent frenzy, the next second I'm reading this and wondering if I'm back in 2004.

    Dark Scorponok is Black Zarak, and soylent green is people.

    Just about the whole Energon line was one big homage to G1 anyway.

    Not a TF homage but Armor Topspin is a homage to Jimmie Johnson's Kobalt Tools car

    I look at Cybertron Swerve and think G2 comic Hot Rod. I even bought a custom.

    Energon Divebomb screams Banzai-tron to my sensors. getting a repaint done.

    Titanium War Within Thrust really strikes me as pre-Beast Terrorsaur.

    I thought the point of an homage was to be obvious. Not a very good homage if you have to guess what the reference is.
