"900 STRA" seems to be the most common license plate in Transformers.

It is on Bumblebee but I can't determine the meaning.

Anyone have any ideas?


Within the film universe it was simply the licence plate of the vehicle that he scanned in the tunnel.

Out-of-universe, no specific meaning seems to have been given but the TRA suffix may relate to "TRAnsformer". Note that in his 'junker' form his plate suffix was 489-PCE (presumably as in PieCE of shit)

    @Buzz first of all, The Last Knight establishes that there have been Transformers on Earth since the days of King Arthur, and in any event there are still 1974 Camaros around today. There are still a few Model T Fords on the road, a '74 Camaro is not hard to find at all. – Columbia says Reinstate Monica Jul 4 '18 at 12:00

    @RobertColumbia Even before that, Revenge of the Fallen establishes that there have been Transformers on Earth since 17,000 BC. However, Buzz was talking about Transformers in real life being an IP. His comment in full context should be read "There were no transformers (shows) in 1974". – TylerH Jul 4 '18 at 14:11

  • @RobertColumbia Buzz is referencing the 1974 animated series Valorum referenced in his answer. Not the Camaro. – Edlothiad Jul 4 '18 at 15:21

This took some digging but I think it fairly obviously once I found it that 900 STRA likely refers to Mighty Stra(later renamed to mighty strike). I am not sure what the 900 stands for but the STRA seems more then a coincidence.

  • " once I found it that 900 STRA refers to Mighty Stra". Can you provide any evidence to back up this bold claim and/or that this isn't simply a coincidence? – Valorum Jul 4 '18 at 15:20
  • @Valorum Nothing more then forums. Much stronger argument then it standing for STRA Transformers in my opinion. I rephrased the sentence to now include likely. – William Jul 4 '18 at 15:23
