    Does anybody else just despise the Dinobots IDW redesigns? Everybody else kept their 1980s appearance for the most part until they started getting Cybertronian robot modes to go with their Cybertronian vehicle modes (something I dislike the 1980s fiction for not doing). The Dinobots looked actually cool and impressive in the 1980s but they're fifty shades of meh in IDW.

    The above image does look good but that's mainly because his IDW redesign is mainly hidden out of view. The other four Dinobots look worse in IDW than Grimlock does anyway. IDW Dinobots - It Doesn't Work. Anyway, we need Grimlock to become his old self again and step back into the action; he's been away for too long; last seen in 2009. Since then he's just been completely neutered and barely showed up with tiny rare brief glimpses of his true self.

    RUN NICKEL RUN!

    Swoop's design looks so weird, it's like if Ultra Man turned into a pterodactyl.

    I'm not impressed at all by the IDW designs. The recent potp dynos remind me how I missed that look. I can't stand how swoop looks in IDW. He's the worse.

    Despite that a rather cool enough cover. Very Jurassic parkish ;) .

    I will absolutely admit to not liking these designs initially. Even today they are not my preferred style if I have to choose a go to Dinobot aesthetic (it's FOC).

    However, having been an invested reader of MTME and the RID series, back when it was RID, I will say I think these designs fit in better with the MTME aesthetic. Much like transformers Animated had a specific look, and while that too was divisive, it served the look of the series.

    I appreciate that there are different looks to go off of, even if they aren't always what we wanted in particular. I would venture a guess that Unicron, signals IDW reboot the way the Big two recently did theirs.

    Expect new look dinobots and everyone else after if that prediction comes true.

    Yeah Swoop is worst of all of them, so I'm glad that the New POTP version didn't get the IDW treatment.

    ......Still hate that they're mostly deluxe combiners though but the only deal breaker was Grimlock (sticking with FOC's version).

    The cover says Pitre-Durocher but the news post says Lawrence? Who is in charge of art this issue?

    As for the Dinobots designs, I like all their robot modes except for Swoop.

    Dino-modes are the other way around, dislike everyone except Grimlock.

    Maybe its because I was a dinosaur kid before I was a Transformers kid, but the dino-modes in IDW are my absolute favorite redesigns in the whole series, and I can't understand how people can prefer the blocky, outdated G1 forms.

    The real problem with swoop is his robot head. If that was changed I think it'd be fine
