    Post random tf trivia here. If you think something someone said is wrong feel free to say so but try not to derail this thread.

    I'll start:

    -the first transformers character to appear with a proper cybertonian robot mode (ie. without earthmode kibble and with cybertronian mode kibble) was G1 Swoop in the Transformers 1987 annual comic, "What's in a name?"

    In the Italian dub of the G1 cartoon, First Aid draws out the beginnings and ends of his sentences to sound like a siren.

    In the French dub, Starscream was voiced by a woman....

    ....did they get some subtext we didn't or were they just psychic?

    In the G1 epiosde "B.O.T.", the majority of the "students" seen in the classroom are in fact recolors from the show Jem and the Holograms and generic thug-like bruisers (complete with 1920-ish dress) who could fit in a Scooby Doo episode.

    I think it had to do with the high pitched voice Chris Latta used.

    Of course, he was also Megatron/Galvatron's bitch more or less, so...

    Speaking of Jem - the Jem and Inhumanoids cartoons are in continuity with the G1 Transformers cartoon. So is GI Joe, but I think most know that one.

    The Cybertronian writing on the side of the Nemesis in the Beast Wars series finale reads "Red Dwarf".

    At one point in the Beast Wars cartoon, we get a look at things from Rampage's point of view. Cybertronian text at the bottom of his head's up display translates to the F word.

    According to Rattrap and Cheetor, There's apparently Strip Bars and Amusement Parks on Cybertron. Sounds like vegas.

    Some people from Mainframe took the design modeler for Beast Wars to a strip club to "inspire" the look for Blackarachnia.

    Blackarachnia

    Blackarachnia has the most nicknames of any character. Which not to derail this topic but if anyone knows the nicknames of characters or where to find them let me know please. Also when Blackarachnia was created it was confirmed that her designer went to see an exotic dancer to inspire Blackarachnia's look

    In Exodus, Sentinel Prime's belt has the sigil of Vector Prime. However, in WFC, he doesn't seem to wear a belt at all.

    That does not surprise me one bit

    I think we need proof of the BA design process.

    Looked for awhile, but I can't find it. It was on one of the TFWiki.net Beast Wars episode pages.

    In Armada Sideswipe's name and his Minicon's name (Nightbeat) were switched accidentally.

    So Sideswipe was meant to be Nightbeat and his Minicon was meant to be Sideswipe

    As an example of a character to submit into a contest, the creators of the japanese Beast Wars made Escargon; a maximal who transforms into a snail and pokes transformers with his Love-Love darts to change their gender. I couldn't make this up if I tried.
