    For some reason I suddenly had a vision about the Dinobots making it as an actual film. (apologies for being a bit slow on this.)

    The reason being is that Michael Bay, if he wanted to, has the right man for the job, Steven Spielberg. Who better than Spielberg himself behind dinosaur ideas.
    I personally am not sure if I would like Dinobots in a Bayverse but if it can happen, than Bay has the right guy for the trick, maybe not in TF3, but quite possibly another sequel.

    what grimlock could look like. (below)

    He also stated he hates Arcee. Her part was small and almost completely meaningless, but she made the cut. Grimlock, and maybe even the others, could potentially make the cut for TF3. Also, something could change his mind about them at some point. It's not very likely, but it could happen. Like Arcee, they'd have a short and almost entirely pointless part, but it would be better than nothing.

    Overall I don't think they'll be included in the movies. Maybe a short cameo in one a comic book or something, but that would be about it. Though I would love to see Hasbro make a movie inspired toy of at least Grimlock, if not a couple of the others.

    I know, but those are bay's words, not Hasbro's, unless what Bay says goes.

    And by the way, Xeltecon is the name of the artist, sorry forgot to provide source. His art is amazing and very inspiring to me and many, it can be found on the FanArt forum of TFW2005 if anyone hasn't check it out.

    Means nothing.
    Bay, Orci, etc. said a lot of things... doesn't mean all of it was true.

    I would want Dinobots in the movie, but they have to HAVE A PURPOSE and be designed in a way instead of putting them in there just to put them in there..

    And besides, why dinosaurs? Isn't there some military vehicles or something Grimlock and his buds can use?

    Here's a thought, and a way to totally get around the "disguise" angle.

    Have the "robot" modes be the dinosaurs, and the alt modes be vehicles. We see Scorponok and Ravage as 'botmode animals, why not?

    The Dinobots could talk in the Dino modes anyway, and that's where the appeal for these guys are, so as long as they have Dino modes in some form, it'd work!

    Now to think of what vehicles each could have!

    The Autobots always need the combined help of the Human military to beat back the Decepticons. At some point, the Autobots are going to need at least one Dinobot (Preferably Grimlock) to act as a heavy hitter. Prime can't do it all himself.

    I also think having Grimlock in the movie would add a new dynamic to the Autobots in that Grimlock would be constantly challenging Prime's authority both verbally and physically. It would make for good character interaction.

    They could arrive on Earth as Cybertronian tanks etc like their alt modes in The War Within and then scan some Earth based ones.

    That is, if they would actually get treated as characters in the movies...

    would you be ok with simple-minded soldiers whose alt modes were selected from the internet as "the most powerful altmodes possible" and are creations of Wheeljack to help the Autobots inthe war against the Decepticons?

    cause to me that seems to be the most logical way to explain it all, without having them be on earth for years-Jetfire's been there, done that-im affraid if they tried to go that route, they'd be senile. and Megatron's already done the "frozen in ice" thing, so probably shouldnt go that way either.

    If they went with this route, I'd feel as though something were glaringly missing.

    Best I could think of, keeping with the context of the films. Oh well.

    One way to do have a dinobot is to make Grimlock crash near a monster truck show and scan a car eating dinosaur. This way Bay and Co can have a scene with a bunch of unnecessary explosions and scantily clad women. Grimlock isn’t smart and only being on the planet for a few seconds assumes that this would be a great disguise for himself. Below is an example of one that exists in real life but of coarse bays version would be way more complicated/larger/cooler/kickassier.

    He could actually have a third trailer mode and be pulled by Optimus
