A certain Movie last year.

The apperance of Beast Wars toys in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was one of the high profile TF toy apperances. Jaydisc posted a link to the video here.

TFs have also appeared in many a background moment on US TV shows.

In Australia: one episode of A Country Practice a sick kid who couldn't have lollies was found to be hiding them in his Optimus Prime trailer. And there was an ad for juvenille diabetes in which the sick kid was playing with Headstrong ("and have needles everyday until I'm better." "For the rest of your life darling" ).

Well, it's probably not exactly "popular culture" in my experience, but when I studied theology and did my "doctrine of grace and eschatology" subject (eschatology = study of the "end times"), the final exam asked me to write about how culture has influenced the understanding of eschatology and vice versa.

I wrote about the fact that the "Covenant of Primus" document is almost a direct and literal "borrowing" of parts of the Book of Revelation (the bit when it talks about the "alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end", etc.). I had a great time in the exam as I was able to write about Transformers, even if just for one question.

In Pokemon, Registeel's cry sounds like the transformation sound. Well, sort of.

Melbournes wannabe Ramones band the Galvatrons!

ok so that might be due to some of the band members having the last name Galvatron but still..
