    I'm not sure if this should be in the toy's section, or in the movie section, but anyway thought I would start this interesting thread.
    I was watching the 1980's movie Top Gun the other night and spotted G1 Startscream! He shows up during the scene where Maverick and Goose pick up Gooses wife and kid at the airport. Goose picks up a toy from the restaurants table, as they walk out, he hands it to his son. You can clearly tell it's Starscream all right.

    Anybody else noticed this, or any other Transformer toy in other NONE-Transformer movies?

    The Insecticons and other G1 TF's appear as toys in Flight of the Navigator (when the main character appeared in the 80's and not he 70's he was living in, I think)

    Not a movie, but I'm pretty sure Omega Supreme is in an old episode of Growing Pains.

    I'm looking for real toy's seen in film/TV.
    I remembered watching Blue Thunder and I think it was at the beginning, the son of the main character had a whole bunch of toy's on his nightstand. But, couldn't tell if any of those were Transformers or not.

    I saw a ton of Transformers in Transformers the movie??!?!?!?! Seriously, Stewie Griffin plays with Optimus Prime in one episode.

    Also, roseanne had Metroplex I think? There is a old thread about this somewhere that has screen shots

    I tried to find a video-clip of Starscreams appearance in Top Gun, but couldn't find it. If I do, I'll post it here.

    Really?! That's awesome! I can now combine my love of TFs with my love for John Hughes films. :) 

    I love this movie, but I have to admit I never noticed.

    The film 'Shortbus' (SORRY!) has a scene in it with G1 Jazz on a guy's shelf.

    I really don't want to say any more than that.

    Still having the nightmares and therapy.

    Although it just shows how much of a TF fan I am that THAT'S what I was looking at at the time!!!

    :(

    Yep, the Starscream appearance in Top Gun has been generally well-known for the last 25 years, but it's always cool when someone spots it for the first time.

    The Princess Bride: if one looks around the grandson's room, one might see Trypticon.

    Stewie on Family Guy had a SS as one of his guards in his room to protect him from the tooth fairy or some shit.
