    The warring factions in the movie were the "authentic," Cybertronian Transformers and the knock-offs built by humans who figured out how to make their own.

    Was this a not-so-subtle allusion to the ongoing issue of Has/Tak having to compete with Asian-based 3rd party teams and knock-off companies?

    Couple that with the "Authentic Transformers" logo on all the new movie toys, and it almost seems as though that aspect of the movie was intentional, at least to me.

    Thoughts?
