    I'm wondering if I missed that episode or if I was totally oblivious to Galvatron just sitting there....

    On Mad as Hell they we’re talking about Jackie Lambie and saying how powerful she is. The interviewee character said ‘She practically is the Prime Minister, in fact practically the Optimus Prime Minister’

    The scene in question happens in the first episode. Which is set in 1985... a small oops that probably only matters to TF fans.

    I’ve seen some people say that it appears that UM is remote controlled, but my read of the scene was that the toy was placed on a remote controlled vehicle or something.

    The classic movie that started all of these "Transformers sightings in other media" back in the early years of the online fandom in the 90s, is on tonight... Leon the Professional, is on channel 32 at 9.15pm.
    This is the movie that has a hitman reluctantly take in a 12 year old girl, who loves watching Transformers cartoons.

    On My Little Pony Twilight Sparkle was looking through a box of her old stuff from when younger and found a toy and went ‘(Gasp) My G1 Starswirl Action Figure!’

    I was watching American Dad tonight (Cops and Rogers, s6 ep14) and they used The Touch for a montage scene. It’s an old episode but didn’t come up with a search.

    And I recently saw the stage musical version of Mean Girls. Those that know that movie might remember the Plastics performing in sexy Santa costumes at a talent show. Well that’s in the musical too but is preceeded by two other talent show acts, one of which is two guys wearing transforming (movie) Optimus Prime and Bumblebee costumes.

    Might be the closest Transformers gets to the Broadway stage. Presumably the Paramount connection of the films lets them do this. (Unless you count walking to Times Square and get a photo with one of the few street performers in unofficial Optimus and Bumblebee costumes).

    The TV guide says that one of the eleven episodes of the Simpsons that are on free-to-air tonight (yes, eleven episodes in one night), is the halloween episode that has a Transformers story to it.
    It is the 9.30pm episode on channel 73 (7-Mate).
    (most of the Simpsons marathon are halloween episodes)
