Just to maybe convince Bay to add the dinobots, would you like him to go this way?

    Follow suit with the IDW's rendering of the dinobots with techno-organic skin.

    I mean, in ROTF, there was already a decepticon that disguised itself as a woman. Why not autobots? Maybe as a backstory, similar to Jetfire who is hiding in Air and Space, Grimlock and others are in the Museum of natural history.

    Here's the pic reference:

    No. I can't think of anybody who actually LIKED the idea of Pretender Alice. Why would the Dinobots, who are already far too over-hyped as it is, need to be subjected to the same?

    Plus, Bay hates the Dinobots. He also hated the concept of Arcee. Look what happened to her, and I guarantee you Bay would find a way to do the same to the Dinobots.

    If i recall correctly, the Dinobots were pitched for ROTF as the Fallen's original servants on Earth. Which would have worked well in a DINOZAURS sort of way, but they got rid of that in favour of the Seekers.

    Don't quite know HOW they'll cast Dinobots, if ever.

    I really do not like the overhype of the Dinobots, especially Grimlock, whom i personally cannot stand. I like Sludge though, and he was the only one not playable in FoC, which annoyed me...Off topic i know...Anyway, Dinobot fans, why worry about it. If its a concept Bay doesn't fully appreciate, its best not to try to convince him too hard. It wont be what you hope for.

    Has Bay ever said why he hates the Dinobots? And Arcee for that matter as well?

    Personally, I loved the concept of it. Just wasn't too thrilled with the execution as well as with how quickly she was taken care of.

    To be honest, I'm glad that Bay doesn't have a fanboy boner for the Dinobots like so many TF creators seem to do.

    Between FOC, the FOC comic, RG1, Rage of the Dinobots, the upcoming Beast Hunters comic, and Monstrosity, I'd shed no tears if the Dinobots didn't show up in any more fiction for several years.

    I'm sure Bay would have Dinobots in his movies if he realised he can do upskirt shots of them.

    Just imagine it: The Dinobots are thundering through a battlefield. A human is trying to get out of the way but falls. He looks up as the robotic T-Rex lumbers over him and sees in a slow-motion shot that Grimlock is wearing skimpy pink underwear.

    Michael Bay: "Aaaaand cut! Okay, bring in the Stegosaurus in the peep-hole bra..."

    Actions speak louder than words. Michael Bay hates Transformers.

    Nicely done, mate.

    Why would I want Bay to feature the Dinobots? I like them.

    I'm not joking.

    I don't mind the Dinobots, but I don't think they'd do well in live action. What would be the point of dinosaurs? Nothing really. They wouldn't blend in, they would cause too much damage accidentally and it just really wouldn't serve a purpose for them. I wouldn't be angry if they did appear, but I think they should focus on other things rather than how they're going to make dinosaurs fit into a 21st century world.

    Yes, that's why he's made three movies and is now making a fourth because he didn't like the thought of being done with the franchise. Yep, that makes perfect sense.

    I find it ironic that Bay of all people hates the Dinobots. (considering it's up his ally for badasses who brutally kill the crap out of the Cons)

    But honestly i'd rather not see them in the movie they have gotten too overrated of a group.

    I believe he's refering to the awful way the Decepticons have been portrayed, the contrasting personalities that make no sense with what the characters used to be, horrible dialogue at some points, how pretty much the entire movie his Bay proving to the world he's heterosexual with the cars and the girls who can't act, all the way to the explosions and weapon fire exceeding the screentime of that to any character. How he has given us very 2-d characters, except for Lennox. How he has made Transformers into a generic "Earth Military vs. Space Invaders.

    Lastly, he's doing another because he wants all the goddamn money he can get by raping every inch of the franchise.

    But let's not start something here and move, shall we.

    As for the Dinobots, it can't work without it being Cybertronian Jurassic Park. Besides I really don't want to see what design Bay comes up for them.

    Well if the script leak of humans engineering transformers is true it could fit them in like animated.

    I like the dinobots in the majority of their appearances but bay has enough trouble creating characters that are just robots that turn from cars and to give them no personality. The dinobots have been written smartly in recent times in fairness but I wouldn't hold too much hope for them, there's a big roster of car bots to choose from BUT the cons have had scorponock, ravage, laserbeak and that awful driller thing in 3 movies so why not dinobots for the autobots? I'd be in favour.

    i find strange how people find the Dinobots to be overexposed although they barely/basically NEVER get any toys. Such as how Sludge has been waiting on a new toy since 2003 and Slag since G2!!!

    Why would i what my favorite characters to be put in a move were they only get about a minute of screen time then get killed (maybe just for a team of five toys)
