    Just wanted to give a humorous heads up to these not-so-sudblte nods to yall about TFs in games.

    Saints Row 2- The jeep has the brand name of "Swindle", and there's a semi named "Cullen".

    Fable 2- There's an alcoholic drink dubbed "Hoptimus Prime", which states "Transform yourself..." in the description.

    Anyone seen any others?

    I hear the Transformers Movie game has a lot of TF references in it...

    It's an actual drink. the TF reference still counts though.

    The pokemon Registeel actually makes the G1 transformation sound.

    I saw pictures in City of Heroes where black market goods were sold out of Optimus Prime's trailer.

    I'm pretty sure Fallout 3 has something called "Liberty Prime".

    That sounds like a bit of a stretch.

    Actually, not for nothing, but there are a lot of references to non-movie continuities, though the only one that leaps to mind is that in the suburbs area, the mall is called Metroplex.

    I never noticed that before, but now that I think about it, Registeel's cry does sound like a really distorted version of the transformation sound.

    In Hunter: The Reckoning: Wayward, the mechanic girl you have to escort early in the game has a Walther P-38 in a Megatron/UNCLE configuration (stock, scope, supressor) Its only recognizable through the model viewer.
