I was playing through the autobots campaign and kept noticing little things that the characters would say that were refrences to either the cartoon or the movies. For example when you are (SPOILER!!!!) freeing air raide sideswipe calls bumblebee ro-bro to which bumblebee responds with saying pretty much "wtf you idiot" sideswipe then says "well ya we cant just call you bee all the time that would sound stupid". I took this as a cheap jab at shia lebouf in the movies. I also noticed on the same level when you are (SPOILER!!!) escorting the prisoners to safety you happen upon a room where the floor has a huge transprent circle shaped floor and if you look down you can see acree ( girl jet autobot) ushering the prisoners along. I would love to know what you guys find throughout the game and I will try to post any other easter eggs that i find.

Well Arcee is playable once you beat the autbot campaign

Obviousley this is all spoilers if we're talking about Easter Eggs IN the game but, my fav has to be Optimus' greeting to the cybertron slugs.

What I'm wondering though is what Optimus meant when he was talking to someone in the prison level (right after he uses the axe). He says something close to "There's a lot of things you don't know about me." and then later in some other level he hints at it and says "But that is a story for another time."

Did I miss a prophecy regarding Optimus somewhere?

Minor Spoilers -

In the credits, there's a line where they thank their friends and family, and it ends with "You rock like Stan Bush!". I laughed.

Interesting. I think that he is hinting that he was a prime and didnt want to say for some unknown reason. I really have no idea. Though i seem to remember in the cutscene where Optimus is named Optimus Prime by the council they also hint at some strange past that Optimus has. Easter eggs are fun :woop:

Favorite is in prison level, when a robot is about to be executed he screams, "Spare me this mockery of justice!", same as in the animated movie with the guy before the Tribunal.

There's a scene in the decepticon play through, (don't remember which one) where you can hear an altered version of the music played when Unicron first appears in the movie. Put a smile on my face.

I'm surprised by the reaction from some folks...people need to relax about the multiplayer being so unbalanced, just have fun with it. Its not like the rank up system isn't as bad as Gears 2 for god's sake.

I'm playing through the Autobots campaign right now and found another easter egg from the cartoon movie. (Spoiler if anyone hasn't seen it yet.) When the slug eats the decepticon, Warpath says to it, not sure how to spell this, "Arrrrrrr weeeee arrrrr naaa weeee meenii grah." My 10 year old son and I looked at each other and started laughing.

That's what I was referring to in my second post. Didn't want to go into detail.

Sorry to be the one who spoiled it then. lol I'm telling you MAD, my son and I were just loving that part. He's been into Transformers as a kid because of me, so he remembers all those great lines.

I get you, man. I hold this game right close to my heart, right next to Batman Arkham Asylum. The fan service both games managed to dish out is crazy and took me back to thermo pajamas and soggy Fruity Pebbles.

I always thought it sounded more like "Bah weep Bah nah weep mini-bomb"

But yeah, i love all the references to the original Cartoon movie, classic.

I know the guy from a lot of anime but mostly as Vash the Stampede and Kaneda (Akira).

The great Steven Blum does the narrator's voice and Barricade, which were nice touches as well.

Loved Rumble "First you crack the shell' then you crack the nuts inside"

Dont think its an Easter egg but laughed my but off when they said (about Soundwave during Autobot story while battling him, Rumble,Frenzy and Laser Beak) "Ah... He's like their daddy"

I liked it when they introduced Warpath and he starts shouting out "Bang!" and "Kapow!" every time he blasted something just like in the cartoon and comics. It put a smile on my face. :)

I loved the fact that they had the Smelting Pool in the game, albeit a tiny one.. on the Decepticon prison level, as you're walking around you can see a Decepticon shove an Autobot prisoner into a pool of yellow liquid, at which point he melts. Classic stuff from the comics.

There's a scene with Kup's "universal greeting" from the movie (cartoon).

And the achievements are mostly easter eggs. Love the tile for "Actionmaster!". There was a period of time when I was crazy over the Actionmasters figures and it reminded me of then.

Did everyone forget the cartoon. Doesnt Optomus Prime carry the Matrix which will light our darkest hour killing UNICRON. Maybe that is what the hint is about (Orson Wells last film but what a way to go being the voice of Unicron). He then passes it on to Hotrod who becomes RODAMUS PRIME. ARISE RODAMUS PRIME. This is the end of the line Megatron......Ater all is said and done you never walk you never run your a winner Queue guitars......reliving my childhood again. not played Autobot campaign yet but if I missed that one thats my views

Who cares about anime, the dude is a POWER RANGER.

Speaking of which, Power Rangers is another show from my childhood that needs to get an awesome game made for it like War for Cybertron. And then maybe Thundercats and MASK.

In the second Decepticon level playing as the three jets transformers, at one point one will call the other one ugly, to which he replies "We look the same, you idiot". Definite reference to the Twins from Revenge of the Fallen.

During the Decepticon campaign, Starscream states that he's taken his rightful place as leader, and Megatron responds, "Starscream, you halfwit, I still function!" It's a reference from the movie when Starscream throws Megatron out of Astrotrain into space after he's injured fighting Optimus, and Megatron says that he still functions. Excuse while I go watch the original cartoons now! :D

I didn't see Revenge of the Fallen, but I assumed that was just a reference to the fact that all the Decepticon seekers were just re-colors of the same model. Even the cone-head ones like Dirge were the same model, you just transformed in a slightly different way.

You then also had on the Autobots' side Prowl, Silverstreak, and Smokescreen were repaints of the same model. Or all the Aerialbots except for Silverbolt.

He then passes it on to Hotrod who becomes RODAMUS PRIME. ARISE RODAMUS PRIME.

He actually passes it to Ultra Magnus before it gets into Hotrod's hands. (You were right dude, this just happened first.) I'm actually surprised Ultra Magnus wasn't in this game, considering Optimus makes a bunch of references in the cartoon and movie to how they were old friends.

I think now the thing is making Prime and Ultra Magnus brothers. Which makes sense, actually. Every figure lately we've seen of Magnus, seems to be just a recolor of Prime.

turn on the subtitles. youll catch alot more easter eggs in the speach

another one for big fans is that in the trailer/opening video
when you see the decepticons hitting the autobot platoon with bumblebee and ratchet in it just before optimus catches starscream's rocket (which i might add is a badass moment) the "autobot" symbol on the building is actually the symbol for The Wreckers. a team of autobots that springer hotrod and eventually apeling leads in the comic books

edit:
I'm actually surprised Ultra Magnus wasn't in this game, considering Optimus makes a bunch of references in the cartoon and movie to how they were old friends. . Ultra Magnus is playable in the DS version. as are grimlock kup i think hot rod is in there too... ill have to get it and find out lol

Ahh the awesomeness of Weird Al, I didn't know there were so many easter eggs in the game. I thought it was just the achievement titles, i'll have to pick this up soon.

I actually used the Universal Greeting last nite when boosting Gears 2. I went in swinging my smoke grenades while saying it... it worked tho lol. :D

The easter eggs are great and all, but the entire game start to finish had me sitting in my gaming chair with a big childish smile on my face. I'd wake up early every morning to play it, much to my wife's dismay. I'd eat some cereal and play, it was like being a kid again. This game has filled a gaping hole in my life!
