    Had a dream this mornning that Grimlock was in Transformers 3.

    He was a triple changer.. From a green type of range rover into some jet and changed into a dinobot..

    anyhow shameless plug on my new facebook group.

    Since Bay said (repeatedly) that he hates dinobots, expect:

    a) No Grimlock at all,

    b) a Grimlock that hardly resembles the G1 Grimlock,

    or

    c) Grimlock in a re-boot of the TFormers.

    Grimlock will probably stay as a dream.

    Um, Bay's "hatred" of D-Bots could very well be an attempt at misinfo. So we'll just have to wait and see.

    Having Grimlock in the 3rd installment would be great. How cool would it be if they made him as large as Godzilla? :)

    I would like Grimlock to be in it.

    I thought Hasbro had the final say on who goes in the movie and how they appear? So I dont see why Bay could prevent it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Grimlock in the third film. I won't be splitting any hairs if he doesn't turn into a dinosaur, I'd prefer that he'd turn into something military. A triple-changer would be cool, but would be hard to turn into a toy.

    This right here. I'm as "G1-fan" as it gets, and I'd actually prefer Grimlock not be a dinosaur. As long as he's got a caveman disposition and brutalizes the Decepticons, then I'm good. A dinosaur is just going to be too hard to pull off, and Grimlock's personality was always why he was a favorite anyways. Same with Shockwave - he really doesn't need to be a gun. He just needs 1 eye and an ice-cold disposition.

    QFT, Ephland. As long as the personality is mostly the same and there are some visual similarities, I'm happy. I'm not expecting Transformers 3: G1 Characters Smashed With A Hammer, in any case.

    And I'm just the opposite. If he's not gonna be a dinosaur, I have no interest. In that case I'd rather they just go with a different character instead. There's plenty to choose from.

    As for Shockwave being a gun, well that was always stupid anyway. But robot dinosaurs are cool. You know it.

    You know something is wrong when someone who allegedly demands everything to be awesome opposes shapeshifting dinosaur robots from space.

    Yes I do know it, and I do agree that there are plenty other characters to choose from, but very few as popular as Grimlock. And since Hasbro has a huge say in what does and doesn't go into the movie, it's a logical guess to think that there's a good chance he makes it into TF3.

    But it's gonna be a challenge to get that dinosaur mode into the live action movie canon, and tons of ways to screw it up. In my personal opinion. here's the ideal way I'd include the dino-mode if they must:

    Grimlock (protoform), being unimpressed with Earth vehicles (and hating having to have a "disguise" in the first place), studies Earth's history (which would not take long or much effort, given the tech we've seen them possess) and comes across something that does impress him: the most revered and powerful land-based predator ever, the T-rex. He requests, in exchange for joining the fight, a robotic version be built as his Earth-mode (presumably by Ratchet or a new character).

    That way, you've got Grimlock as conceited, egotistical, and an ass-kicker AND as a dinosaur.

    True, he is popular, and does make an entertaining character.

    I still kind of like the idea of making Grimlock a Monster truck. Fact I'd just like to see an actual monster truck in one of these TF films, and Grimy just seems like the best character for that. I could just see him chasing down Decepticons and just running them over.

    Also, and this is probably even less likely to ever happen, but it'd be cool if he was like a monster van, like Grave digger, but the mural painted on the side would be of a T-Rex skeleton. Just as a kind of nod to the dino-bot Grimlock.

    What Paxtin said. Despite my liking for dinosaurs, he'd be better off as a big vehicle than a T-Rex and hold a few homages to G1 Grimmy. Maybe be like Scorponok and Ravage where the T-Rex form (or something that LOOKS like a T-Rex) is his robot form.

    If Grimlock does appear, he'll probably be green and an excavator, and probably combine with 3 other construction vehicles as well. :p

    I just say do a tripple changer on him. Give him a vehicle mode like Ravage has. Then have the Tyrannosaurus mode as an quick attack mode. Then give him a robot mode.
