    Sorry if this doesn't qualify as "news" but I thought it was worth mentioning since it does apply to Transformers fans and it should be news to some ^^"

    Seems like Derrick J. Wyatt is continuing to show his love for Transformers Animated and just all things Transformers in general in his newest show/project, "Ben 10: Omniverse"

    Again, sorry if this doesn't belong in news, but the amount of TFA stuff in this show should be brought up.

    i thought this when i watched ben 10 omniverse the other day not animated but thought it was a reference to transformers ..check it at 11 minutes 4 seconds where he says its on like computron right next to a truck that is similar to optimus primes..or is it just a coincidence? lol

    After the Grimlock sword and Lockdown reference, I don't think it's anywhere close to coincidence :p 

    Not to mention he name drops Computron, though it technically is a character in Ben 10 from what I've looked up.

    Omniverse is basically TFA's Spiritual Successor. It's the best Ben 10 series ever, and almost fills the TFA-shaped hole in my heart :p

    Certainly doesn't hurt it's DJW, Matty Youngberg, Bumper Robinson, David Kaye, Corey Burton and Sue Blu all working together on the same show again.

    It's basically the closest we're going to get, and there's already been more than a few TF references in the show.

    Ben 10 Should get his TFWiki Page after Omniverse Refences.

    Hope the Cast & Crew does not know about the time about Bill Fagerbakke commentting about David Kaye's Mom.

    How does DJW get enough pull to put in Transformers references in the backgrounds? Transformers isn't on Cartoon Network anymore?

    Same way every other TV show (and video game) that references Transformers does. He just does it.

    I make fun of internet white knights all the time, but when it comes to TFA I make an exception. It was the best TF show ever and would have (hopefully) goten even better.

    Thanks for sharing, I'm no Ben 10 fan but this was nice to see.

    What they need to do is make more and more TF references and do less and less Ben 10 until it becomes a TF show with a few Ben 10 references in it.

    So awesome. I don't really know what Ben-10 is but I think it's really cool this stuff is in it.

    It's not like anyone's stopping him.

    Ha!

    Probably covered under Fair Use, so long as a competing company doesn't try to make toys of the character.

    There is actually something in that episode That looks like the head TFA Scrounge from the Allspark Almanac but its probably just a coincedence

    [edit] actually, thinking about it, knowing what Derrick is like he'd have put Scrounges Arm in the background rather than his head

    Actually that first guy who's the main Villain of the show looks more like the main Villain of the old She-Ra series named Hordak than any transformer.
