    Its not universe dinobot. Could be Fox Kids dinobot or one of the other original beast wars dinobots your thinking of.

    The Beast Wars repaint of Dinobot, Grimlock, suffers from heavy GPS. Could you be thinking of that?

    Yes, Beast Wars Grimlock's got a ton of the stuff. I own one though, and knock on wood, I've had no problems.

    Thing with the gold plastic is just to be very gentle and put no stress on it at all. But eventually they'll all crumble from age.

    GPS

    This is a quote from Tfwiki.

    And that is why I was asking if he had GPS, you know just to make sure.

    I believe I've found you're problem... I don't care if it's fan run or not, it's still a wiki...

    Where did you find this quote? I searched the Wiki, and couldn't find it. Was it this Wiki, or one of the other ones?

    Transformers Wiki - TFWiki.net

    Nope, looked on the Dinobot page, and the GPS page. Still can't find it. Can you be more specific?

    I just checked and it's on the old wikia version of TFWiki. Ignore that place. The real wiki is http://tfwiki.net.

    As far as I know, GPS is not really an issue anymore.

    The wikia.

    http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Dinobot_(BW)

    What Gryph said. The wikia is obsolete.

    Ah, okay, the old Wikia place.

    I wouldn't trust it as much as the newer Wiki, if I were you. Not as reliable.

    I don't mean to hijack the thread, but while we are talking about Dinobot: does the US 10th anniversary Dinobot have any GPS problems? I can't find any information on it so I assume he's okay, but I can't get over how his color is similar to my old TM Megatron (needless to say, mine is snapped in half).

    None that I've heard of. Hopefully TM Megatron, BWN Randy and Fuzor Torca will be the last TFs to have GPS.

    also add Silverbolt from the Magnaboss set to that list, although it usually involves his tail coming off at the joint
