Movies: "Transformers" Cameos & Easter Eggs in "Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers" Movie

05/20/22

Today the new Chip n' Dale: Rescue Rangers movie debuted on Disney+.  You can check out the trailer below.  The film features a huge list of cameos from other franchises including Voltron, Masters of the Universe, Smurfs, My Little Pony, Garfield and more.  Among them are two surprise Transformers cameos!  SPOILERS AFTER THE TRAILER.

 
Chip n' Dale: Rescue Rangers takes place long after the iconic pair has broken up as an act and moved on with their lives.  The cameos happen in two different time frames, one in the past and one in the present.  The first happens in the early 80's and features G1 Blaster in an audience:
 
The second "cameo" is more of an Easter Egg.  During the film's climactic battle, the main villain takes on different aspects of various characters to battle our  heroes.  One feature is his left leg, which is based on the live action Transformers film's Optimus Prime model.  This leg would later transform into, essentially a roller skate for the character to move faster!
 
 
The third reference is not exactly a cameo but more of a "side" Easter Egg.  The main villain with the Optimus Prime leg also has a cannon on his arm, though it is not Megatron's classic Fusion Cannon it is connected to the arm in a very similar way to G1 Megatron's.
 
 
Those are the cameos and references I caught for Transformers.  If there are others I missed I'll add them here once I see them.  Check out additional screen caps in the gallery below!
