I know others have said this, but: lots of visual references to Transformers Animated: - Lockdown, obviously. - The main human character is an inventor with a young daughter. - Megatron's severed head, communicating with scientists in a lab and tricking them into building him a new body. - Joshua Joyce = Porter Powell. -Drift and Hound are CLEAR visual references to Samurai Prowl and Bulkhead.
