    Though the title might not sound like anything, the main question of the topic is what Prime characters share similar designs to past incarnation of themselves?

    I've got:

    Optimus Prime: The Movie style head, along with the windshield chest from every single Prime. The shoulder armor reminds me of Animated Prime.

    Bumblebee: Obviously the movie head and chest. Not much else I can see.

    Arcee: Truthfully, not much. Her bike mode looks like RoTF Arcee's bike mode, but not too much.

    Bulkhead: Practically everything from Animated Bulkhead.

    Ratchet: Headcrest from Animated Ratchet, and not much else.

    Cliffjumper: Just the devil horns.

    Megatron: The 2007 alt-mode, Animated Megs's feet.

    Starscream: Like Arcee, not much. Exept Movie Starscream's face.

    Knockout: The wheels on his back like RoTF Knockout.

    Breakdown: Not much exept for the color.

    Airachnid: No past Airachnids.

    Soundwave: Not much.


    So have I missed anything?

    Knockout looks a bit like Terrorsaur (with the red and headscuplt),

    Airachnid's deco is based on the Insecticons.

    Breakdown's red face = G1 Breakdown face.

    Breakdown's color scheme and head design are pretty g1. His head is basically "g1 combiner head stylized to not look generic combiner head"

    Soundwave's head is pretty clearly based on his g1 con symbol head

    Megatron is like a perfect fusion of G1 and Movie, while Starscream seems to mash Animated Screamer's physique with the Movie colour scheme and posture. And Airachnid's blacks and purples are like Animated Blackarachnia, as opposed to her Beast Wars/Machines looks.
