    Do you think Grimlock is stupid. I don't mean stupid as in I hate him (I'm a Grimlock fan too) I mean stupid as in his head is empty. Must be why dinosaurs have no brain. Me Grimlock dumb but funny dumb. Huh?

    I don't think he's "stupid", but he does have a somewhat limited intelligence, imo, coupled with an extremely limited vocabulary. He was meant to be a drone after all. While Allspark power does give you live, I don't think it hands out a certain amount of intelligence. The Constructicons got lucky in that they kept some sort of memory from their previous lives as just construction machinery.

    "Rarr! Me Grimlock make 3 identical threads!!" (j/k)
    I think it's more feral/animal-like than out and out stupidity. Like, not particularly intelligent by "human" standards, but he probably has a cunning animalistic instinct.

    Speech isn't the best way of judging intelligence but at least G1/War Within/IDW-verse make sense of Grimlock's speech

    Grimlock has always been stupid. Sometimes he's not but usually he is. Animated Grimlock seems more of a genuine idiot like G1 'toon Grims but could always pull the "I was smart all along, just playing dumb" thing if he really had to.

    Honestly, so far Grimlock seems to be a cross between the comic relief and general badass of G1 post-movie and pre-movie (respectively)... but with the sense (note: not intelligence) of post-movie Grimlock.

    He's an alright character, but I feel like all his charm really comes from the homage. There's nothing wrong with that, of course. I love the throwbacks. :)

    Seeing how he's the only dinobot who's figured out how to speak I think he's doing pretty well.

    They are only a couple moths old after all, and they haven't really been taught much.

    He's supposed to be a dinosaur, and dinosaurs have generally been stereotyped as big dumb monsters in most media, so they made him big and stupid.

    Plus, as other have suggested, there creation and subsequent training has done little to make them into great thinkers. Most of the newly created transformers have been less than briliant, and even then they each have fragments of the allspark giving them life. The dinobots however were created with the use of the energy from Sari's key, and unlike soundwave, they didn't go through an extensive evolution.

    Hmm, I see it more like he is still learning.
    Remember, he started with very simple speech, and at the end of the episode he figured out how to transform.
    In the later apisodes he learns to trust Prowl, and leanrs a bit of good and bad the hard way. Damn, he even leanrs about women
