    Recently, I've been looking at the G1 twins and Movie twins more and more. There was just some things so similar I couldn't help but see them as the same characters. Twins with very similar alt-modes, but one's is much flashier, as is their personality. The other twin is a lot like them, but always in their shadow and kept more to themself.

    So what do you guys like more? Blatant homages that are instantly recognizable or characters that fill the same role but aren't so loud about it? I don't mind somebody like Optimus Prime or Megatron staying, but I wouldn't mind somebody like Perceptor having their character filled in for them, so to speak.

    Edit: crap, can somebody move this to General Discussion?

    Herp and Derp don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same thread as Sunstreaker and Sideswipe.

    And in the toys, yes, I prefer direct homages to subtle ones.
