    My favourite transformers are the dinobots, yet I always noticed that there is only 5 of them. There are other transformers with dinosaur mode but with the expection of Beast Wars Dinobot, they are all pretty much obscure. Anyway I am wonder what transformer characters who do not have a dinosaur mode but would have potential for a dinosaur mode. For me it would be great if Ironhide gets an Ankylosaur mode

    I'd rather new bots than force a dinomode on established characters.

    Megatron was Godzilla to Optimus Primal's KingKong. But it could still count, I don't know...

    Ironhide is who I thought of when I saw the title.

    Tracks Pterosaur

    I could see carnivac going from a wolf to raptor of some kind and I think his character would fit in well with the dinobot. Impactor and scattershot could also fit in with the team but it would be a lot like having 3 grimlocks, alt modes I don't know anything heavy and land based for impactor, scattershot, one of the raptors with wings.

    Wouldn't he, by very dint of his name, be a dragon, not a dinosaur?

    Not that I'm against any return of Snapdragon. I'm an enormous fan of him (and the injuries he inflicted on Daniel :p  ) and I've been wanting a new SnappyD figure or ages.

    A snapdragon is a flower.

    The word "dinosaur" was created in 1841 by an English Scientist named, Sir Richard Owen. He created the word to describe giant lizards that had recently been discovered in the fossil record. Prior to 1841, the most common term in the english language used to describe giant lizards was the word, dragon.

    The start of Hearts of Steel had most of the original G1 characters as prehistoric creatures, dinosaurs and insects.

    On topic:

    Frenzy as a raptor
    Laserbeak as a pterosaur, oh wait!
    Any of the Seekers as pterosaurs. In fact Titanium WW Thrust always feels he'd be good as pre Beast Terrorsaur.

    How about a triple changing Dinobot?

    I think I suggested Triple Changer Dinobots in another thread. Goes from Robot to Dinosaur to Cyberronian tank or jet.
