    When I was a kid I remember seeing the commercial for the Predacon toys and I vaguely remember it being advertised as "Autobots have dinobots, now Decepticons have Predacons!!!" type ad. So, have these two teams EVER had a knockdown, choke slamming, fist to the plate, draggedout, no holds barred fight with eachother?

    I'm thinking Call of the Primitives would be the closest right?

    Not directly. They did face-off a bit in "Call of the Primitives" but not before or after that episode. Considering their brute strength, though, I'd say in "animal" modes the Dinobots would have the advantage. But, in gestalt form Predacon could (IMHO) beat the Dinobots.

    No, they didn't ahev an all-out. If the Predacons didn't combine however, I think the Dinobots might SLIGHTLY win the battle. However, if they combine its all over.

    They fought in the UK Marvel comic. IIRC, the Dinobots wiped the floor with the Preds, apart from Swoop who needed a little help taking down Divebomb.

    I remember this from a comic I read about 17 years ago, but if you asked me what I had for lunch yesterday I'd be stumped.

    I remember the commercial. This is a tough one since I love both factions, but I think Dinobots win over predacons and might just lose to Predaking. I mean, the Dinobots had a tough fight with Devestator in TFthe movie. Im not sure there was a winner there, but I think its safe to say that Predaking is more powerful than Devestator, right?

    Supposedly, unlike other gestalts, Predaking has no weaknesses making him the ultimate warrior. This would DEFINITELY give Predaking the upperhand against the dimwitted Dinobots. Now, if the Dinobots had a gestalt form, there wouldn't be much contention as to who would win.

    In a one on one match the Dinobots all the way due to shear brute force.

    If the Predicons combined into Predaking its a bit more iffy. Predaking would be conceivibly more powerful then the Dinobots and would easily win if the Dinobots attacked seperately.

    However, if the Dinobots attack as a cohesive unit from all angles around Predaking they have a fighting chance due to their strength and superior durability to all other normal sized Autobots/Decepticons.

    So it is kind of a toss up to me.

    If you count Sky Lynx as a Dinobot then the predacons don't have a chance.

    Well, in the movie 4 of 5 Dinobots faced off against Devastator. And though we didn't actually see them win, we DID see separate Constructicons running for Astrotrain and the Dinobots apparently uninjured afterwards.

    All 5 vs Predaking, it sort of depends on how you see the Dinobots. If they're idiot-savants who don't know how to do much other than fight (and we some some evidence of this in the movie with them attacking in concert), then I think a Dinobot win is possible. They'd have to all work together well, and they'd take a pounding in the process. But the fight could go either way. It would be a long knock-down-drag-out fight though.

    If the Dinobots are just idiots, though, I think Predaking isolates them and tears them up.

    I've always thought that the Dinobots COULD combine but they REALLY REALLY REALLY don't want to.

    Pure fan wank I know, I just always pictured some scene where the dino's got pretty much tossed and things were looking grim for our heros.

    then Prime says something like "Safety interlock overridde: Zero-Zero-Primus-Omega. DINOBOTS,,,,COMBINE!"

    (in Peter Cullen's voice of course) :) 

    Then after a PowerRangers/RID sort of gesault sequence the Decepticon's jaws just kind of drop (cowards like Starscream and Lazerbeak start running already)

    Then the huge gesault croutches and roars (just like Predator when his mask comes off in the Schwarzenegger flick, bonus for some sort of massive maw on the gesault head) and another 70% of the Decepticons run like hell.

    Then Predaking pretty much gets destroyed in the most savage way possible.

    :lol :

    I'M DIGGING THE ABOVE!!!

    Maybe IDW can re-design the Dinobots to allow for a combination sequence...

    Going back to the question; it's a tough call. SkyLynx was able to go head-to-head with Predaking; however, I personally doubt SkyLynx would do so well against all five Dinobots. But then again Dinobots have had a tough time beating up gestalts as far as I can recall and Predaking should be able to beat up any combiner? I'll let the comic writers settle the debate.

    the dinobots did combine once. it was in a mini comic with the dvd boxsets here in the UK.

    probably not mega offical but for a mini give away it was an ok story.

    and yes the combined dinobots made a mess of everyone, including most of the gestaults iirc.

    AWESOME! I wish the designers of the Classics line had this type of imagination!

    Sky Lynx felt very, very insulted whenever someone compared him to the Dinobots.

    Basically, your sentence has the same meaning as "If you count Optimus Prime as a Decepticon..."
