  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Dirt Boss: (To Scrapper) Will you slag that annoying little pipsqueak already?!
      Bumblebee: Who are you calling "pipsqueak," short stuff?

    • Lugnut: Impudent Autobots, what have you done with Megatron?
      Bumblebee: (To Optimus Prime) This probably wouldn't be a good time to mention the whole "Transwarping randomly around the galaxy" deal, would it?

    • Bulkhead: You know, it's not too late to paint some new logos on your chests.
      Mixmaster: Yeah, I guess... I mean, Megatron had good oil and all, but his management skills stink.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • White Heat:
      The scene where Dirt Boss climbs to the top of the oil tank is similar to that of the final scene in the 1949 gangster film White Heat.

    • Gurren Lagann:
      Dirt Boss's robot mode design seems to be based on the Gember mecha from the anime series "Gurren Lagann".

    • Dirt Boss's mind control "pods" are similar in both appearance and delivery method to the cerebro-shells used by the Insecticon Bombshell from the original "Transformers" series.

    • Fossil Fuel Logo
      The logo of the Fossil Fuel Oil Company appears to be a double reference. The most obvious is its resemblance to the Dinobot Sludge from the original "Transformers" series. It's also similar to the logo of the real-life company Sinclair Oil, which is that of a sauropod dinosaur.
