    Lately ive heard alot about whether or not the dinobots will be in the game or not. so i wanted to know where everyone stands, yay or nay for the big dinosaurs? personally i love the dinobots (especially swoop) and would love to see them in the game.

    Don't care either way, but I guess I personally like the idea of them being built on Earth. Isn't the appeal of the Dinobots that they turn into..dinosaurs? They're not as fun as they turn into cybertronian..things..as well.

    But like I said, I don't really care either way. If they want to put them in, they should go right ahead.

    I recall something about the Dinobots being called Dynobots and had vehicle modes and was build on Cybertron.

    Origin differs with each continuity. Even in the G1 Marvel comics they came from Cybertron, if I remember correctly. Same in the Dreamwave and IDW comics.

    I'm not saying it's 'wrong', it most definitely isn't. The built on Earth part, as in G1 and Animated, is the origin I like best, personally :)

    dynobots was a horrible retcon to get around them needing to be built on earth.

    i'll be a bit disappointed if they turn up in WFC tbh.

    Eh, I don't mind it too much. Cheesier things have been done with the G1 mythos, frankly.

    They'd be great characters. I dunno about having them be dinosaurs tho. I guess it would depend on what this game is a prequel to- G1 1985 animated? G1 Marvel US? G1 do-over?

    I think Dinobots would work great in the game just as long as they were in their Cybertronian forms. War Within Grimlock is one cool figure IMO.

    Don't really care if we see the Dinobots. I'd personally like to see certain other characters instead, though.

    I'd love to see at least Grimlock get a little cameo. Especially if the game is meant to be a prequel to the new show.

    Edit: Don't really care what his alt-mode is, but he does have to have a real bot-mode. A dino-bot-mode works for someone like Trypticon, but not for Grimlock, imo.

    I wouldn't be surprised if at least Grimlock shows up with a look similar to his War Within version: the Autobots are a little lacking with tank types.

    I'd like to see them with similar if not the same designs to War Within.

    Dinobots are fine, they will have non animal alt-modes though.....but this is a non-g1 game, anything goes, it is a brand new continuity

    Did everyone who disagreed with the D-bots forget about Trypticon? He's pretty much a dinosaur. Hell, lets throw more in. The dinobots could have made an expidition to Earth at some point and returned to Cybertron, deciding to keep their dino alt. modes.

    Works for me.
