    Once I have posted artwork for my Insecticons, seen here....
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...-profiles-some-fan-character-insecticons.html
    I shall begin to post my Fan Dinobots....there are currently 35 of them, plus the original 5, as well as 40 pretender dinosaurs (more about those at the time!!!)

    Feel free to post your own characters here, and I may get round to doing MTMTE profiles for them, a name, alt mode dinosaur, short bio with any abilities/weaknesses and hopefully a motto would be nice.
    This won't be a commission....I'll do it for free if the character 'grabs' me

    Here are mine to get us started....
    SCORCH, Quetzacoatlus, Bombardier. 'Decepticons burn as well as anything else'- bit of a pyromaniac
    SCREECH, Velociraptor, Frontline Assault. 'A quiet victory is a shallow victory'- makes up for his small size by being as loud as possible.
    SCYTHE, Therizinosaurus, Shocktrooper. 'Where there is fear, let there be hope. Where there is darkness, let there be light. Where there are Decepticons, let there be Dinobots.'- the dinobot's resident primus botherer.
    SHARD, Saurapelta, Communications. 'Get to the point'- tells it how it is.
    SHUNT, Styracosaurus, Commando. 'I always win on points'- big brute of a guy, loves goring opponents.
    SKULK, Parasauropholus, Scout. 'When I talk, no one listens, when I fight, no one survives.'- surly teenager.
    SLAM, Ankylosaurus, Demolitions. 'You hit me, I hit you, you hit the ground'- pound for pound the hardest puncher of the dinobots.
    SLASH, Carnotaurus, Warrior. 'The fate of the galaxy may rest upon the edge of your sword.'- samurai like swordsman.
    SLATHER, Dilophosaurus, Chemical Warfare. 'I've plenty of bad habits, but losing ain't one of them!'- Hoist hates him due to his poor personal hygiene
    SLICE, Icthyosaurus, Marine warfare. 'I suffer fools madly'- highly intelligent, can't see how some of his team mates are so stupid.
    SMIRK, Psittacosaurus, Warrior. 'You and who's army?'- least powerful of the dinos, but knows that no one will mess with him because of who he can call on for back up.
    SMITE, Pachycepholosaurus, Demolitions. 'Knock knock.....' loves to head butt things in either mode.
    SNIPE, Ceratosaurus, Gunner. 'Brute force and ignorance will never beat brute force and intelligence.'- a professional soldier who can't believe he's been drafted into this unit.
    SNORT, Kentosaurus, Warrior. The chain of command is only as strong as it's weakest link.'- Snarl's brother, thinks Grimlock should lead the Autobots.
    SPIKE, Iguanadon, Medic. 'Killing is easier when you know fixing' more of a patch up merchant thah someone like Ratchet.
    SPINE, Dimetredon, Engineer. 'Divide and conquer.' Loves to tinker with the teams weapons. has a chainsaw like frill on his back.
    SQUALL, Pliosaur, Marine warfare. 'The wetter the better'. Big bastard. ungainly on land, but deadly in the water.
    STORM, Ampelosaurus, Artillery. 'Boom and bust.' Has a big gun and loves to fire it.
    STRIFE, Irratator, Saboteur. 'Trouble isn't my middle name, it's my primary function'. one word-sneaky.
    SUNDER, Argentinosaurus, Fueller. 'I thunk derefore I is'. as stupid as they come. if tech specs came in fractions, his intelligence would be 1/2.

    EDIT-even more of 'em!!!
    SACK, Spinosaurus, Warrior. motto and bio pending. Thanks to Constructasaur.
    SALVO, Liopleurodon, Undersea assault. 'Let your prey come to you, and slaughter them.' Thanks to Unfallen.
    SAURON, Nyctosaurus, Scout. motto and bio pending. Thanks to Constructasaur.
    SAVAGE, Podekosaurus, Military Intelligence. 'The only thing I won't cut are corners.' highly intelligent and professional, acts as a liaisson with autobot command
    SCALP, Stygmoloch, Demolitions. 'If you want to go head to head with me you've got no chance.' Smite's brother, always fighting each other.
    SCRATCH, Compsognathus, Reconnaissance. 'dangerous things come in small packages.' The 'Bumblebee' of the Dinobots, small and eager to show waht he can do.
    SCRIMMAGE, Placerias, Demolitions/Bomb Disposal. 'Been there, seen that, blew it up'. older, more experienced guy, the Kup of the Dinos.
    SCUD, Anhanguera, Bomber. 'There's a bomb up here with your name on it.' Bit of a nutter, really. a bit overeager when it comes to dropping bombs.
    SCUPPER, Mosasaurus, Deepsea Demolitions. no motto yet, Navy seal like, absolutely hates the Seacons.
    SHACKLE, Chasmosaurus, Heavy Infantry. no motto yet. uses a big burning chain to fight, Ghostrider style.
    SHIVER, Cryolophosaurus, Warrior. 'Keep a cool head.' frill on his dino head is kept at a constant -200degrees, used for head butting.
    SINGE, Longisquama, Incendiary Assault. no motto yet, Fire breather, and can heat his back spines to 700degrees.
    SLAB, Edmontonia, Demolitions. no motto yet, resistant to most gun fire, can use his spikes to gore opponents. possibly Canadian?
    SLAUGHTER, Tapejara, Hunter. motto and bio pending. Thanks to Constructasaur.
    SMASH, Amargasaurus, Interrogator. motto and bio pending. Thanks to Constructasaur.
    SORTIE, Rhamphorynchus, Air support. 'Kill to live, don't live to kill.' Not exactly a pacifist, but can't understand wht some of his comrades are so destructive
    SPLICE, Diplodocus/Pteradactyl hybrid, Infantry. 'Two wrongs don't make a right.' Based on a KO, corrupted datafiles used in his reformatting have made him this freak of nature. Hates himself.
    SPOOR, Baryonyx, Tracker. 'If you are looking for trouble, just follow your nose.' excellent sense of sight and smell make him an excellent tracker.
    STAGNANT, Sarcosuchus, Amphibious Assault. no motto yet. loves nothing more than sitting motionless in mud waiting for a 'con patrol to stumble by.
    STASH, Alxasaurus, Munitions/armourer. 'I don't believe in luck, but i do believe in bullets.' Has the unenviable task of giving the newer dino recruits firearms training. hates his job.

    As you can see, I've maintained the 'S' name precedence laid down by G1.....and tried to only have one bot per dino type...I say tried-Storm and sunder are both Sludgesque, Slash and Snipe Grimlockian, Snort Snarly and Shunt Slaggish. They'll transform differently though!!!!

    Sector 70 is running a Sweet 16-style tourney for their next challenge - one of which just so happens to involve Dinobots. I will be building one that is eerily similar to one of those you have listed here... perhaps a collaboration of sorts is in order? :)

    Sabre, Stomp, Spook and Stroke- will give them a miss as i want to go 'strictly dino'.
    Slaughter- I like the look of the tapejara, might give him a go.
    Smash- My Storm gut was originally an amargasaurus, so I might do him too.
    Sack- and Spine was a spinosaurus, so I might do him!
    Sauron- the Nyctosaurus loks crazy!! might so him as well!

    any bios/mottos/transformation processes for them?? It will be a while until I get these guys done what with work and other projects.

    I only have one fantasy Dinobot.
    Since he was built as a part of a 2nd expansion to the Dinobot team, his personality and intelligence levels are more advanced than even Snarl and Swoop (thanks in part to new arrival to Earth, Perceptor). Despite his fellow Dinobots wanting to name his something like Slam or Slapper, upon activation, he chose the name Arman Kylo. His ankylosaurus mode's barbed tail proved very useful in both modes for smashing giant holes in heavily fortified obstacles -- like Devastator's mixing drum. His skill with an Energon axe is equally impressive.

    At some point after a falling out with Grimlock, Arman Kylo volunteered to become part of Rodimus Prime's new combination unit designed to match the animal instincts and raw power of the Predacons. He now combines with his fellow Maximals into Savannius.

    -- Cybertronian.
    P.S.: I can't decide where to put his rubsign -- on his back, or on his hind quarters (the upper half of his tail/mace).

    you spelled 'dimetrodon' wrongly.

    also, i bet a lot of people won't know what these are. Aside from the common ones like carnotaurus, u have saurapelta and therizinosaurus thrown in there :)

    Looking good.

    Where the hell did you get that hooked horror thing!! It's giving me the shits just looking at it! I do think a bot called Ravenous would have a massive mouth though. To me he looks like he could be called Sickle. Unless the name is a pun on Raven, the black carrion eating bird, then it's perfect.

    interesting idea, but I think you should use my character art work as a starting point

    A Dinobot army! With drones?

    I'd change the name "snatch" to something else. :p

    I've updated my original post to include 15 new dinobots, including 4 of Constructosaur's guys and one based a sludge/swoop KO that he was kind enough to bring to my attention....that now gives us 40 of the bastards!

    here's a 'teaser' image......Tarpit is another fan character of mine, a silver monster truck jeep who was originally a stuffy archeologist but has been 'drafted' into the decepticons by Megatron to study the Dinobots in the hope that they can be replicated/defeated.

    Might I suggest Surge?

    SURGE, Liopleurodon, Underwater Assault, "Let your prey come to you, then slaughter them" a giant even among the Dinobots and is often pitted against Piranacon.

    I like it.....There is however already a Surge and I'm trying not to use existing names (I'm pretty well clued up on G1 but I may have inadvertently used some names from Beast wars, Energon etc.)

    Surge (1990) - Autobot Long Range Defense - www.tfu.info

    Sorry, Any other names for him???
