    I spent the rest of the episode watching this board and Facebook, looking to see a post about this. Even my wife was confused, as I got a preorder in once this was announced, and haven't stopped talking about it. :lol

    Damn, that's awesome. Now, just have Drift, Windblade, Victorion, and Ectotron become some new group and have adventures in the comics. Oh my God what did I just do....I gave them ideas that's what.

    I’m surprised there aren’t complaints about continuity or some shit! Very cool though. I do think we need a hardcore Bay fan to break down behind the scenes canon on how this could have happened....just kidding!

    To be fair, even if Ectotron isn’t from the 80’s, he’s one of the most 80’s things I’ve ever seen.

    POPTIMUS PRIME FER LYFE!
    Don't worry, my wife took care of that the second she heard about it. She literally lost her shit and started screaming that the show is just fake as hell and cross-pomoting a toy that didn't exist in the eighties somehow is destroying the very fabric of America or some shit. It was a hilarious rant, but I think she's taking it a little too seriously.

    I tried telling her that while the toy didn't exist back then there were constantly people talking about how awesome it would be to see the Ghostmobile turned into a Transformer, so it's not completely un-80s either, but that just got her even madder.

    I still enjoy the show, but they've definitely been on a downward slide for a while now. With Barry's gal gone on to her own spin-off, I have a feeling the quality is going to continue to slide. The spin-off is funny too, but neither compares to season one or two of Goldbergs at the moment. Which is a shame because this show started off SOOOOOOOOOOO damn good compared to most modern sitcoms. Every once in a while you get some magic moments, but the show overall isn't non-stop hilarity like it started out. They've gotten a bit too cheesirific for their own good.

    They even kept it posed brick-style. Good attention to detail.

    Odd there was no news when 2017\'s Chinese film \"Youth\" came out which featured a child getting a PotP Starscream when it was set in either the 80s or 90s (it\'s been awhile since I saw it but know it was before PotP).
