- In the opening sequence, during Blackout's invasion of the Qatar SOCCENT base, the officer ordering the Pave Low to turn away, step out, etc., was named Col. Sharpe.
- Another possible cameo was after the SpecOps guys landed at the SOCCENT base, a pair of African-American guys are seen playing basketball -- one of them was talking in rhyme.
- One of the F-22 Raptors had a name written in the cockpit: "Capt. B. Armbruster" -- Capt. Brad J. Armbruster, aka "Ace", is a Sky Striker pilot in the G.I. Joe series.
- The Laurentian Abyss, where the fallen Decepticons were dumped off near the end of the movie, is the same abyss where G.I. Joe and Cobra fought for the heavy water in the first mini-series.
- The black Sector 7 vehicles that were escorting Bumblebee and the Allspark look very similar to G.I. Joe A.W.E. Strikers.
- Josh Duhamel's character, Capt. Lennox, first appeared in the G.I. Joe vs. Transformers comic book.
- The movie prints were delivered to theaters under the code name "Cobra".
- The hacker's (Glen Whitman) room, had three model planes hanging by the window. One of them looks like a Sky Sweeper from SpyTroops, and one looked like a Sky Striker

I always thought it would have been awesome had they given the troops GI Joe names. Not the code names, but their real names.

I noticed in the theatre that the kid who says "Cool, mom!" when Prime is fighting Bonecrusher appeared to be holding some Joe toys, possibly a 12" Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, but I only saw it for a second.
At least, I think so, I was kinda watching the two huge Fing robots fight.

There was an online video interview w/ the writers talking about how they were huge 80's cartoon fans and that they tried to include a lot of nostalgia from all the shows into the movie in subtle ways. There are also suppose to be Thundercat and He-Man references throughout the movie, but I do not know what they are...
