    Hey all! Dunno if this has been mentioned before, but I discovered some neat Transformers references in Saints Row 2

    There is apparently at least one transformers fan on the Saints Row 2 development team. As I was playing I noticed the names of some of the vehicles were awfully familiar. Here's what I found:

    Vortex - Unknown.. this was confirmed by IGN website..
    Sandstorm - Dirtbike
    Cosmos - Sedan
    Swindle - Jeep Wrangler
    Mixmaster - Cement Mixing Truck

    not sure if there are any others, but it's too many references to think it's just coincidence.

    there's probably lots more. a couple of motorcycles are called Tetsuo and Kaneda... Akira anyone?
    Anyone else have some input?

    Thats hilarious. I love the Akira mentions. I haven't picked up the game, I'll probably rent it.

    I just got this today and noticed that two of the Demolition Derby cars are called Frenzy and Rumble.

    Pardon the necro-post, but found another one.

    The dump truck is named Longhauler, a reference to Long Haul.
