    I just noticed that animated Sentinel Prime's shield is called the skyboom shield in the Allspark Almanac! Wasn't that the name a mini-con team in Armada? That's an awesome nod. :D  They should have mentioned it in the show.

    There's actually a shit ton of Transformers nods in the Allspark Almanac. I think Chris McFeely made an entire website noting all of them - worth checking out!..except I don't know the adress.

    Heck, google it or ask him! :D

    Here it be!

    I think I have some stuff that's since been clarified that I need to add to it (and remembering it exists seems like a good reason to get around to doing it). Jim Sorenson reliably informs me that I've only got 95% of the references, though! Bill Forster says there's at least three or four more Iron Maiden references I missed!

    The Allspark Almanac is such an amazing book, and this was one of the references I picked up right away. The Allspark Almanac is probably my favourite guidebook to anything ever. It has entertaining and interesting nods, such as the use of Cyberglyphics in the backgrounds of images, the use of names and characters from other continuities, etc. Read over it very closely, and you'll pick up a lot of amazing things. I can't read cyberglyphics, so I'm probably missing some stuff, but I could probably learn to read them! :)

    the best thing about the Almanac is the ridiculous amount of references.

    Wow, just wow, Chris.
    I made it about a third of the way down that page.

    That deserves an internet standing ovation.

    Thanks for the kudos, chaps - but don't imagine I did much more than just translate the Cybertronix and google the results! ;)
