    I just got a new 52in Sony LCD and I'm watching Top Gun in Blu Ray. I always knew that when Goose meets his family off of the plane that his son has a toy jet, but now with this bigger TV it finally caught my eye that it's a G1 Starscream. Pretty cool...

    No kidding? I'm going to check that out.

    P.S. Days of Thunder is my home theater "show off" movie (and Revenge of The Sith).

    See if you can find out which transformer the kid in Flight of the Navigator gets. I suspect its Cyclonus.

    I just love 80's movies and although they aren't "reference" material by some peoples opinions, I prefer that film look that they had back in the day.

    I wish they would release star wars on blu ray... =(


    Flight of the Navigator is actually on my Christmas list so if I get it I'll look for it.

    i always thought it was skywarp or thundercracker... cyclonus didn't come out until 86, and the movie was released in 86, with much more time to produce the movies then they currently use, so i believe it was filmed in early 85, which means cyclonus wouldn't've been released. i'd have to dig out my dvd of FotN but i'm at work currently.

    and yeah, i remember the first time i saw starscream in top gun, i totally flipped out...i wonder what other movies feature Transformers in them at some point...

    Kinda funny detail indeed.... but eh..... the F14's in Top Gun remind me way more of Macross/Robotech....

    Starscream is in Top Gun, huh? Somehow, this just seems to confirm what many have always suspected about Screamer.
