    Didn't Prime say Let's Roll during the G1 series?

    "Let's roll" was said by OP constantly during the 1985-1985 G1 series.

    It's just a variation of Optimus Prime's iconic "roll out". Let's roll is not an uncommon phrase, and I don't see how you made this connection.

    While I mean no disrespect at all to those on Flight 93, I don't think it was a reference to it in ROTF. Just another variant for Optimus' catchphrase, "Autobots, transform and roll out", and another cool one-liner for Optimus being pimped out.

    If any of the films could've referenced it, it could have been DOTM, since it came out ten years after 9/11.

    Of all the phrases at his disposal though, he picked that one. You never know...

    Indeed. I think he actually said it more than roll out.

    In choosing a phrase to be spoken by Optimus Prime, why wouldn't he pick a phrase constantly spoken by Optimus Prime?

    Oh for crying out loud... "let's roll" is a common turn of phrase that has been around (and used) long before Optimus Prime ever said it, long before or Todd 9/11 ever said it, and long before the 9/11 exploitation crew starting making t-shirts with the phrase. Now if that Todd guy said "transform and roll out" - then things would be weird.

    By Primus I already know he said "Let's Roll" frequently in G1 I watched the whole thing. Stop stating the completely obvious shit and look beyond it, maybe you'll find something unexpected.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this absolutely must be true. But it is possible. Do not come at me as if I'm challenging the fabric of the universe. Merely making a suggestion.

    The search for easter eggs has officially gone ludicrous.

    Next stop: the plaid.

    False. That would mean it wasn't completely nuts to begin with.

    Hey, I noticed that Optimus Prime used some verbs in DOTM. So did the passengers of 93!

    Homage! Total homage!

    I get it, I think your on to something too.

    Did you ever notice that Ironhide in the movie was black, and the car that JFK was shot in was black? Very sneaky Mr. Bay.

    This thread gets too close to some sensitive subjects.
