The thing with easter eggs is they can be harmless if done well but Transformers of the past ten years (mainly DW, to be fair) tends to go over the line more than most other comics I've read. The DW stuff especially seemed to be intentionally trying to cram as many random references in per issue as possible and when you're doing that it ups the chance of it upstaging the plot. Some of the DW easter eggs are great - 'Bee and Brawn having their toy faces as battle masks, for example - but loads of them are really, really heavy handed and often cause plot problems (a great example is the need to have Shockwave's puppet council all being Year 2 Autobot cars - thus creating a continuity problem as Red Alert should have been with the Earth squad).
