    I just thought of this because I'm bored and I'm trying to avoid doing more research for this 10 page paper I'm supposed to write.

    Lets see if we can come up with a comprehensive list of all mentions and/or appearances of Transformers on TV, in movies, in music, ect.... Don't include any official Transformers cartoons, movies, or music smart asses. :dunce 


    Here are my contributions:

    -Optimus and Megatron are mentioned in the lyrics or the song "1985" by a band named Roper (Ex-Five Iron Frenzy). The song is on their one and only album to date titled, "Prepare for the Mediocre."

    -The Beast Wars Razorbeast figure was seen and mentioned by Will Smith in an episode of Fresh Prince.

    -Singer/songwriter Jonathan Coulton compares his girlfriend to Optimus Prime in his song "Better." The song is on his album "Our Bodies, Ourselves, Our Cybernetic Arms" which shipped with an issue of Popular Science awhile back. You can go to his webpage and stream the song.


    Woo... what else can you guys come up with.

    I remember I was flippin' thru channels last year and saw an episode of Who's the Boss and Tony was in a store with the blonde older chick returning/buying something, (it looked like x-mas season), and in the back, I saw a Scorponok box clear as day,lol

    Optimus Prime was Jewish on an episode of Family Guy, and Soundwave was married and had kids on a separate episode of FG.

    In the song Archetype by Fear Factory the opening lyrics are:

    You must never forget
    The essence of your spark

    In the song Rebel Robot by Voivod the last lyric is:

    There is a little matrix in everyone

    [​IMG]

    And my personal favorite:
    [​IMG]

    Not Transformers, but funny none the less:

    You missed out on a great thread that had a slew of these a while back, but I think it's been purged.

    Still, I'll throw the same two in I did that time: Wu-Tang Clan referenced TFs on their double album 'Forever:'

    I consume planets like Unicron/
    Blasting photon bombs/
    out the arm/
    like Galvatron

    and DMX, from his first album,

    I transform like Optimus Prime/
    Off on the head/
    Roll out, let's make it happen

    But there were dozens, at least, from that old thread.

    One episode has a Beast Wars spoof, can't really remember, but I think it had an owl-bot in it.

    In the low budget Robert Townsend movie "Hollywood Shuffle" there is a shot in a kids bedroom and G1 Jetfire is sitting on his dresser.

    On an episode of "Scrubs" JD and Turk paint a mural of Optimus Prime and Megatron on Turk's baby's nursery wall.

    There's also a scene where Devastator comes down with the flu and then gets kicked to the horizon by Optimus Prime. (Second season)

    I still remember several episodes of Webster that had a boxed Sky Lynx on the shelf in the background of the store/snackbar Webster always went to.

    sky lynx also shows up in a movie called "the serpent and the rainow" starring Bill Pullman and Lisa Bonet from the late eighties.
    Just before the dinner scene they show a boy sitting on a couch fiddling with him.

    A mistake of this nature can never be forgiven.

    In that Fresh Prince episode, I believe Will also had Alligator Megs in a later scene where he was having a little battle going on.

    I got an obscure one. General Hospital. Sonny's kid was playing with an Energon Megatron (or was it Galvatron?) during one scene sometime last year.

    There was a Robin Williams movie that came out a few years back called "Insomnia." I didn't actually see it, but I do remember that the commercials for it featured a kid playing with BM Supreme Cheetor.

    I saw Serpent and the Rainbow AND Insomnia, and I can't remember any Transformers in them. How sad is that? And I pride myself on finding details like that in movies and on TV.

    In the song Light Speed off of Dr. Dre's Chronic 2001 album, Megatron and Starscream get their names dropped. The lyric is as follows:

    In these drastic surroundings, it be sounding like Lebanon, makin fools "RETREAT!" like Megatron and Starscream. Oh yeah I scream-on-stars

    I always loved this line from the song because it made me laugh to think one of the most memorable things about Starscream and Megatron from G1 is that they were always retreating from battles.
