    So I'm watching 30 Rock and much to my surprise Liz Lemon walks up to a movie poster and it is "Transformers 5, Planet of the Earth" written by "No One" (This would relate to the premise of the show)...The picture had a version of Optimus that was obviously a cobble of PS'd images but cool none the less. It only showed his legs which resembled more of the G-1 styling..What was funny was a steering wheel was very apparent on his foot.....I had it paused to take a pic and since I was already behind in real time watching the show it had met the threshold where it cuts off and starts playing in real time...Bummer.....I'm sure it can be found on NBC.COM....

    Not if you don't know what episode you're referring to. I'm guessing this was the new one ("Plan B") that according to the schedule premiered on 3/24?

    It won't be available on NBC.com or Hulu for at least a week.

    But thanks for the heads-up. I would like to see a screencap of this.

    Foster..saw your post and couldn't help but thin..."Planet Earth, might as well call it Planet Dirt" Jetfire-ROTF :lol  awwww Jetfire :rip 

    If you have ON Demand with your cable provider.. "Plan B" is listed under Primetime Free>NBC>30 Rock>Plan B.:popcorn 

    Yep...that's the episode..just watched it..too funny...looks like Bay and Shia are holding hands in between Prime's legs..:lol  (also tried to get a pic..wouldn't you know, my battery died..good timing :banghead: 


    Also, noticed on the repeat episode The Middle.."Frankie looks for a friend"..his new friend loves Transformers..especially Starscream :lol  ..no actual bots shown tho.. (I thought the little kid was called "Brick")

    Coincidentally, Transformers made a very brief cameo in last week's 30 Rock as well, when Frank tossed what looked like a Stealth Force Optimus (as well as a MOTUC Skeletor) into a fry cooker. :)

    Aw that's mean! I'm sure some underprivileged kids could have used those toys more than the fry cooker.

    Ha! I just watched this episode, funny stuff! If anyone's looking for screen caps: Transformers 5 – The Planet Of The Earth | Collecticon dot org

    I totally thought this thread was going to be about that episode when I first read the title.
