    If Fall of Cybertron is supposed to take place before they traveled to Earth, then how can Grimlock be a T-Rex on Cybertron?

    They explained that Shockwave visited Earth during it's Jurassic years to scan that planet for any powerful creatures that he could recreate to help the Decepticons win the war. Although, I could very well be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure it happens along those lines.

    To try and put it simple...Megatron asks Shockwave to look for planets they could moove to, and he happens to find Earth via telescope, or whatever tech he's using to look at planets. Shockwave happens to see Earth while inhabited by the dinosaurs, and is impressed by them. This leads him to experiment on the team of Autobots that they have captured, thus creating the Dinobots.

    Yes, what the other guys said. Shockwave was studying other planets, he came across Earth and its dinosaurs. Impressed with their brutal strength and diversity, he decided: "Hey, I'm gonna make dinosaur warriors!"

    He captured Grimlock and the others, experimented on them and turned them into dinosaur warriors. Good for you, Shockwave.

    I wondered why the GI news got very little views.

    Heh heh, I made a rhyme.

    Well, I guess at least the Cretaceous if Grimlock is a Tyrannosaurus, then maybe scanned bones & fossils of Triassic & Jurassic creatures.

    Could've been an incredibly long-term study, too. :lol
