    The ones we know from trailers/showest/tv spots/sneak peeks:

    1. Shanghai cop cars nod to G1 Prowl. EDIT: Chinese police cars don't have that color scheme, japanese cop cars do, as in G1 Prowl.

    2. The name of Mikaela's dad bike shop is Mike's Custom Bikes. EDIT: As in Mike Bay... Same in TF1, Mike's Towing anyone?

    3. Ice cream truck color scheme homage to G1 Arcee's color scheme. EDIT: Might be a stretch, might not...

    Alice is
    a homage to the Pretenders. I also suspect that her tongue is a homage to Legion from the Kissplayers, but maybe that's just me. :p

    Jetfire being old as hell could be a backwards nod to the fans who know he's actually supposed to be extremely young.

    Ravage attacking BB, just like that G1 episode. Of course the outcome this time around was very very different. :wink:

    Starscream screaming "my arm" while fleeing the forest fight....it's a stretch but could be a homage to the '86 movie when he flies off screaming "my foot" after getting it caught in the transforming autobot city.

    -Wheelie stepping on rat traps and actually completely sounding like Ratrap = homage to Ratrap

    -Scrapper in the MTV clip with Mikaela and Sam, where he swings his fist at them = homage to animated Bulkhead

    It never ceases to amaze me how far some fans will go to see an homage that isn't actually there. Wow.

    Yes, but some of the ones posted in this thread are just ridiculous.

    The Devastator Gorilla is a homage to Primal or maybe it is just a homage to King Kong.

    I don't know about a nod, but they certainly did give optimus WAY more tools to fight with this time around

    Agreed. I mean, no offense to the OP, but why would the Ice Cream truck be an homage to the original Arcee colors when the characters who turn into the Ice Cream truck AREN'T Arcee?
