BEETLE MANIA
When Sam’s buying his first car, Bumblebee (in Camaro form) damages an old VW Bug to ensure Sam won’t buy it. In the original series, Bumblebee was a VW Bug.

FIGHTING WORDS
As Optimus Prime and Megatron get set to do battle, Prime says, ”One shall stand, one shall fall.” It’s the exact line he said before they dueled in the 1986 animated Transformers movie.

COLD WARRIORS
Megatron and his second-in-command, Starscream, loathe each other in the cartoon series; the film nods to this with Megatron’s line ”You’ve failed me again, Starscream.”
