    I was wondering, I know it's a small detail but would be a cool shout out if the wreckers had this symbol:

    the wreckers symbol - Google Search

    vs the autobot symbol

    you think we will see it?

    No, it would probably just confuse the general public anyway.

    You really think so, I mean I'm thinking more of a glimps, kinda like when we noticed the shockwave reference in rotf as a small shout out the tf nerds like us would notice. And also not that confusing as it almost looks like an autobot symbol.

    True, but they were going to change Megs name to Galvatron in ROTF but decided against it as they felt it would confuse audiences.

    It's probably why Megatron wasn't named "Galvatron" upon his resurrection. Bay was worried that Joe six-pack wouldn't understand that Galvatron is Megatron, and vice-versa. To be fair, though, the Autobot and Wrecker logos are 90% similar, and in a blurry drive-by shot I wonder if the audience would even notice the difference.

    Why else wouldn't they? Or was it just a Geewun fan rumor put out there?

    There you are talking the name of a character, all I'm thinking is something that us here would notice by freeze framing the DVD that even some of us wouldn't notice

    Nah Tonks Trypticon is just talking about confusiong people. Right now there are 2 different faction symbols in the movie-verse, and if a third one was added, someone would be like "Wiat, what? There's a third faction? They good or bad? etc..."

    I understand your freeze-frame comment, but I doubt that they would take the time to put that into a movie for 1 second of a freeze frame on a dvd for fanboys to scrutinize over. Just my guess...


    *edited because my spelling is atrocious.

    I know what he and you are saying in the first part, but all I'm talking about is a nod not a huge emblem on their chest though you ate likely right they won't just thought it would be a nice SMALL nod
