    Was watching this Wes Craven voodoo-themed movie from 1988 on Netflix and came across our pal Sky Lynx. Well, half of him.

    There's a few of those "Easter Eggs" in 80s movies. I think there was a thread about it not too long ago. But just to name a few, there was an insecticon in "Flight of the Navigator" and some Transformers on the book shelf in the beginning of "Kicking it old school"

    I remember someone making a thread about a pair of random sci-fi tools hanging from the ceiling in "Aliens" actually being 2 Shackwaves and people being blown away that no one ever noticed it. Sky Lynx is not quite so hidden here, but the movie it less well known

    Awwww..Sky Lynx :thumb 

    What about the shuttle in the boy's lap?? One of ours??? Don't see any seams to transform...?

    Never mind...just remembered (later) that's the other part of Sky Lynx...sadly I never had him as a toy, only saw him the cartoon. :)

    Pretty sure everyone's seen this but Top Gun features Starscream. You can see Goose give it to his son when they get off the plane. This is the best picture I can find on the internet but you can see his tailfin over the boys shoulder.

    Also, I remember seeing Sixshot in an episode of "My two dads". The hip dad turned it into a gun in the episode.

    There's a scene where the main character gets a bunch of Transformers in Disney's Flight of the Navigator.


    Also, for Canucks, there was an old, OLD Leon's commercial that prominently featured an Omega Supreme in tank mode.

    Little bit off topic but in the tv show 'Peep Show', one of the characters is watching MTMTE.

    Newt and Ripley locked in the lab. Look at the microscopeish equipment behind them as they try to keep away from the 'hugger.


    No, voodoo-style zombies.
