    Who do you think would win between the Dinobots (Grimlock, Slag, sludge, Snarl & Swoop) and the Seekers (Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Ramjet, Dirge & Thrust)?

    I don't think it would be as straight forward as it may seem - yes, everyone knows the Dinos are hard-nuts, but the seekers have their own abilities - imagine, for example, Skywarp using his 'warping' ability to continually confuse and frustrate Sludge (who's not the sharpest knife in the drawer!). Also, Swoop would be outnumbered aerially, though if the Dinos got the Seekers on the ground, then they could run amok.

    What do you think?

    Seekers, Dinobots are strong, but stupid as hell. Swoop is generally weak so would be overpowered easily. The seekers would be hard to stop with their spees and if they stayed in the air they would easily win.

    If the Seekers stayed in the air, like Thenames9 said, I think the Seekers would take this one pretty easily with fly by bombing. If the Seekers were dumb enough to land, I'd say that Sludge and Grimlock would rip their arms out in about five minutes.

    Tough call. While seekers can fly which has it's advantages, the Dinobots are tougher and a lot stronger, but are land-bounded with the exception of Swoop.
    I would thinking flying would have the upper hand of both attack and escape.

    :lol  At first I thought this was a resurrection of an old zombie thread from at least two years ago asking who would win, Dinobots or Seekers.

    For the record, I even dug out that old thread:

    Dinobots VS Seekers TOTAL SMACKDOWN...Who Wins?!

    Seriously, in the cartoon flying was not that much of an advantage. How many pics can you show of the seekers pwning a Dinobot? That's what I thought.

    I don't think they can fly?
    Can they?
    Dinobots would win. Seekers would fly low to get a better angle and Grimmy would roast them with his flamethrower mouth thing.

    Tough call if saying both can fly.. Seekers have missles and nullrays with their inherent speed/agility.. Dinobots have missles/rockets too as well as guns and SWORDS XD. Not to mention the firebreathing and wreckless brutefoce lol. Dinobots have a mad size advantage where seekers have unique individual traits as well iirc. Skywarps teleporting is all I can remember off top of my head >.>

    Good idea for a comic showdown too, should write to idw about it XD

    I can't believe the Seekers have got so many votes! For me this is an embarrassingly one-sided contest.

    The Dinobots have hides that are tough as hell and can bring down the jets with their flamethrowers. Plus the seekers are fucking cowards and would retreat at the first signs of potential defeat.

    Dinobots, hell grimlock on his own could take this. Looking at this TC is the only one I thin stands a chance of even doing anything to the Dinos and that “if” his effect things works on them, the rule seems to be high endurance lower chance of effect weapons working (see starscream null rays vs. megatron), sure the seekers can fly and are fast, grimlock has a good skill rating and energy weapons, I doubt any seeker comes close to light speed and being the air just means you've got less to hide behind.

    This isn't a fight, it’s a massacre.

    While it's obviously the Dinobots, keep in mind that in some fictions the Seekers are highly regarded as Decepticon elite. It's not purely cowards and idiots as in the cartoon all of the time.

    Even still, it's the fuckin' Dinobots.

    In a battle, the Dinobots would win. But I like the seekers better.

    It would be a pretty close call. I say seekers because the dinobots are slow and dumb as shit. But I'm not saying the seekers wouldn't get the slag kicked out of them.
