In Episode 6 of the latest series of 'The Venture Brothers', Gary breaks into his old room in The Monarchs Cocoon and goes to his collectables cupboard for an item. Clearly visible on one of the shelves is an Optimus Prime (looks a bit like the 'Cybertron' version without the jetpack).

It's probably fairly easy to optimise your sales result when you're swinging an axe around.

I'm sure they did. Would've only cost 'em $10,000 to do it.

I just finished Saints Row 4 and in the end they referenced Transformers The Movie......as well as a load of other games and movies.

Spoilers

In the third part of the the final mission you gain some power armour that gives you superpowers to defeat Zinyak in the real world, after opening the blast shield, The boss dives down the tunnel while 'The Touch' plays in the background.

Boss - "One Shall stand, one shall fall"
Zinyak - "Why throw your life away so recklessly, Saint?"
Boss -"That's a question you should ask yourself"

This was on Pawn Stars tonight - he could have gotten MORE than than the $20,000 he asked for if he pieced them out! And they offered him 10 grand?!?! Fools!

I remember when that was doing the rounds a couple years ago, and fans were so annoyed at how low the "expert" valued the collection... probably hoping that they could get dibs on it later when the Pawn people offered an amount that the expert knew would be rejected.
I visited the Toy Shack this year (the store the expert was from) and it even has a sign out the front saying that they are featured on the Pawn Stars show... and it is a huge shop, so this guy would have been experienced enough to know that this collection was worth at least $50,000. The owner said there was over 1000 figures, and he could get $20,000 just from the handfull of city-formers he had in the back corner.
I wish I'd remembered this episode when I was at the Toy Shack, so I could see if this guy was there, and probe his mind for his motives.
