    I am working my way through Vol 3 of Batman TAS and in the episode "His Silicone Soul" 3 hoods are hanging infront of a building sign. The sign reads "Cybertron Warehouse" and the company that made the H.A.R.D.A.K computer is Cybertron Industries

    Sweet, though I've always related TF to Marvel instead of DC. Now that they're being published by IDW, may this be the indication of a possible crossover?

    No, the Batman cartoon Shin-Gouki is talking about aired in the mid nineties around the time Beast Wars was airing. It is possible it is a homage of some kind to Transformers but it happened way before IDW or Dreamwave got the Transformers license.

    Paul Dini, one of the writers of Batman TAS wrote the Transformers episode, 'Dweller in the Depths'.

    He also wrote the Masters of the Universe tale where Teela finds out who her mother is! Now apart from the baziliion cartoons he's writing, he's also a writer on Lost!

    If we see a TF reference in that show we'll know where it came from!

    I didn't know Dini was writing for Lost, I love that show.

    I always thought the Kobra terrorist organization in Batman Beyond was meant to be a natural continuation of you know what. I wonder if Dini wrote that episode too.

    Dont' forget the other Batman-Transformers cross reference!

    Aaron Archer worked on Hasbro's Batman toyline before moving to Transformers, hence the two Batmobile-inspired alt modes we've gotten in the past few years!

    Kobra have been a mainstay of the DC comic universe since 1976. They're DC's equivalent of Marvel's Hydra or AIM. The one shown in Batman Beyond is based off this organistation - bizarrely it never surfaced in the modern day shows despite the fact that it was active the whole time!
    I caught the Cybertron reference when I saw Heart of Steel the first go round, but I never thought anything of it. I figured it wasn't a TF reference for some reason but just that they happened on the same name. Now I know better.

    Wonder if we'll ever get a Transformer with the numbers "4 8 15 16 23 42" written on him...

    Transformers: Lost...that has possibilities. A shuttle on it's way from Cybertron to Nebulos - Axalon flight 815! But it crashes on a mysterious planet. Organic, strange, with polar bears and two moons! Who are the mysterious others? Vok? Neanderthal humans? And will the mysterious floating island crash and doom them all if they don't type in the code every 108 minutes?
