At one point in the film, a certain eager Sector 7 agent has some news for John Cena's character Agent Burns. Burns refers to him as Agent "Simmons." This is an obvious reference to John Turturro's character Agent Simmons who is a regular character in the original Transformers trilogy directed by Michael Bay, and some cameos in the ones to follow.

In one sequence, Bumblebee is seen crushing a can of Tab Cola with his fingers. The can however is of modern vintage, as shown by the can's shape (with the tapers, as opposed to the more purely cylindrical can of 1987) and the calorie count mark on the label (which was added sometime after 2010) See more »
Travis Knight has delivered us an amazing Bumblebee movie where we finally understand the story and see a true bond between a human and machine. Bumblebee is a entertaining movie with stunning CGI and the best transformers story we've gotten since the 1986. This movie is indeed a 10/10 and is up there as one of the best 2018 action movies.
