    Has there been any news on Dinobots for the Universe 2008 line? I was hoping they were gonna be released along with the original Classics series to compliment Grimlock. Any hint that Hasbro is planning to make the rest of the Dinobots?

    I think they specifically said that they weren't planning on releasing any animal form transformers as part of Universe because they want to focus on realistic-ish vehicles.

    Nope but if they did, it should be of Sludge and "Snarl" (the stegasaurus) since they do not have TFA counterparts.

    Primus I'd love a Classics Sludge, he just looks like a power house. If they ever did make him I'd hope he was a voyager. I demand Dinobots for Universe!!!!

    I think Hasbro specifically said no Dinobots for Universe because they want the Animated ones to be the focus.

    I don't remember them being that specific about it, but I doubt there will be Universe Dinobots anytime soon, unless you count repaints of Classics Grimlock. :)

    I think any 'vehicles only' rule went out the window when Cheetor was announced as part of the line.

    Hell, I'd live with them giving us a repaint of Cybertron Brimstone with a new head sculpt for Swoop.

    He's a 25th anniversary toy, not directly a Universe 2.0 toy. I don't think he counts.

    If we get any, they'll be in the 25th Ann. line, and will be Sludge and Snarl. They way it was said at Botcon, they were lucky that they were able to get Cheetor into the line, as it was the higher-ups decision to enforce the realistic vehicles rule. Personally, if we do get them in the line, I think either both will be Deluxes, or if we're lucky, Sludge will be a Voyager.

    Technically, he's for the 25th Anniversary line (celebration of all 25 years of Transformers history) and not really Universe.

    If they do tuck some dinos in there, I hope it's Sludge. He was always my favourite.:)

    Yeah I hope it's sludge too if we get anything.
    He didn't get any homage in animated or that classics mini-con pack unless you count the animatronic dinosaur that didn't get turned into a dinobot.

    I hope so too, sludge was and is my favorite dinobot. Maybe we'll get more in Animted. Hasbro would be dumb to not capitalize on dinobots. I remember as a kid they were the most popular!

    Don't hold your breathe for more Dinos. Hasbro said way back that the three we have now are the only one's we're going to get. I don't see how remembering them as a kid being so popular has any impact on how popular they would be nowadays. We could get some in toy form way later on, but they wouldn't be on the show.

    Chances of classics (aka new mold) Dinobots, very small. Universe (aka repaint) Dino's better. There are 3 Dino/lizard 'formers form Cybertron that could be repainted as Dinobots. Brimstone, Undermine, and Wreckloose.

    I'd love to see Brimstone as Shattered Glass Swoop. Imho, he looks too evil to be an Autobot.

    qc

    Personally if they are going to be as lackluster as Grimlock I would rather them not be made at all, with all his QC issues, as well as the not so great Zoid dino mode.
