    The Dinobots are the most awesome Autobot and Primitives that Hasbro has ever made, They've been in other TF Generation series such as Beast Wars, Energon and of course today's Generation-Animated.

    So what's your favorite Dinobot?

    What do you like about them?

    Favorite Dinobot? BW Dinobot followed by G1 comics Grimlock. Largely like them because they weren't idiots. Are we counting BW Megatron as a dinobot since he turned into a T-Rex?

    No, Not Megatron. We're just talking about the original Dinobots or at least you want it to include Beast Wars Dinobot.

    My favorite is Slag because he transforms into a fire breathing Triceratops and i like Snarl only in Transformers Animated.

    I have always loved Grimlock. Ever since the G1 cartoon. I really loved the Marvel comic Grimlock too. I think my favorite though is the Beast Wars comic version of Grimlock.

    I'm going to avoid the cliche and say that my favorite Dinobot is Slag. He had a cool voice, cool robot mode, and cool dino mode. I thought it was classic when Grimlock said, "Slag, do fire stuff."

    My favorite Slag moment is in TFTM, when Sludge and Grimlock get owned by Devastator, and Slag comes along and head-butts Devs and brings him down. Then Slag calmly walks away like his work was done. Pretty hilarious.

    "Errr, excuse me?" rates as my favourite line from Slag ever. Not that I can remember any others, but that one is just plain fun.

    I like Sludge, the voice Frank Welker uses is pretty cool and the way he said the lines when Sludge had lines always makes me laugh.

    G1 Grimlock (first two seasons) since he was rebellious and I honestly as a kid thought he would take over the Autobots one day.

    My favorite is Grimlock and Swoop. I like both of their alt modes the best of the group and for other reasons too. Grimlock for obvious reason and that he's so arrogant he's funny, plus he's the leader. I'd say Swoop is the smartest of the Dinobots, plus he is also the most compassionate. He's more like the rest of the autobots than his Dinobot buddies are. But yet he's so very unique in that he is the only Autobot with wings in the show. Not only that but just the fact that he can fly and is a bombarder for air support makes him an extreme rarity among the autobots.

    Though one of my favorite lines rarely mentioned out of the dinobots that isn't a Grimlock line, has to be Snarl replying to Sludge...

    Sludge: "Sludge not see these decepticons before."
    Snarl: "Not see again either because we dinomite them to pieces!!"

    Grimlocks my fave. He's just such a badass in every incarnation.

    But all the dinobots have something to offer.

    Snarl looks badass. I always loved how his spikes folded back to reveal his head and chest.

    Swoop was awesome cuz he could fly

    Sludge was the first dinobot that I owned. he was stupid and he could make earthquakes. Awesome

    And Slag just cuz he's so damn HOSTILE.

    I wish Snarl and Sludge would get some updated toy love. Hopefully for Universe. That'd be nice!

    Or at least in animated to round out all five

    I think By Far Animated Grimlock is the best one out there? I have all my G1 Dinobots but I just love the size of Animated Grimmy. He is a big Kick Ass Character in the shows and now he has a toy that fits his show size.

    Snarl was always my favorite due to the stegosaurus being my favorite kind of dinosaur. Plus I loved all the gold plates he had. Sludge was a close second, Swoop & Grimlock tie for third, and then Slag.

    One thing's for sure - the Dinobots were always my favorite sub-group of G1 and I'm glad they were never turned into a combiner team.

    Although I've always been partial to Grimlock, my favourite Dinobot has always been Swoop. Just something about him made me a lifelong fan of this guy. I loved the G1 episode where the Dinobots had to go to Cybertron and ended up getting enslaved by Shockwave and Swoop saved the day. It was so great to see almost an entire episode revolve around Swoop being kickass.

    I really hope to see more of the latest incarnation of Swoop in Animated.

    I don't have a favorite, I love them all equally. But if I had to pick one it would be Snarl. When I first saw all 5 in the store I had a hard time picking one. I could get only one but I couldn't decide, I eventually chose Snarl.
