    i was thinking about how micheal bay said that the dinobots wouldnt work in this version of transformers. i think that if the dinobots would be put in they could have been former decepticons who defected since decepticons would have beast alt modes (example scorponok ravage lazerbeak). what are you ideas if the dinobots were in the bayformers. would u stick with g1 or something new?

    I don't think they would work that well on the big-screen, first off, their name is silly at least and really goddamn ridiculous at most ["They're Dinossaurs and Robots, I could come up with some cool name like "The Harbringers of Prehistoric Doom" but fuck that, let's just make some random Portmanteu and call it a day"].

    Secondly, I really think a robotic T-Rex would look really stupid: One thing is a robotic scorpion, a fairly menacing and normal thing [as well as a Robotic tiger and a robotic falcon], the other is a T-Rex, I don't think anyone would take a robot T-Rex [mainly with those tiny arms] walking around New York City even slightly seriously, that would be flat-out hilarious.

    Besides, in all cases, their beast-esque modes was their ROBOT mode as well, so they were pretty much animals, with the Dinobots? They would be robots TURNING into dinossaurs, that can't possibly end well.

    BUT, I like the concept of Dinobots and I love Grimlock, they all could work without the Dinossaurs-alt-modes.

    My idea was to make them similiar to seekers, old like Jetfire, that would explain their personality and verbal issues. They would be found at the D-Day musuem in New Orleans as WW2 vehicles. Then the cast would refer to them as dinosaurs because they're so old. Weave them a story about how they were sent to hunt Shockwave and you've got a group as bad ass as the Wreckers, with more recognizeable names, etc. crazy I know but that's my piece of fan fiction,and the excuse to make customs of them.

    This shows he doesn't have much of an imagination.

    Agreed.

    Do you honestly believe that the general public wouldn't be all over giant transforming robot dinosaurs blowing shit up, like white on rice?

    If they were to put the Dinobots in the movies, they would probably only do Grimlock, Swoop and Snarl. Just like TF Animated.

    "Besides, in all cases, their beast-esque modes was their ROBOT mode as well, so they were pretty much animals, with the Dinobots? They would be robots TURNING into dinossaurs, that can't possibly end well."

    true but i think i read somewhere that the scopion mode for scorponok was his alt mode and he had a seperate robot mode i know it was that case with the toy but i could be wrong

    "BUT, I like the concept of Dinobots and I love Grimlock, they all could work without the Dinossaurs-alt-modes.[/QUOTE]"

    if grimlock made a non-dino-alt-mode appearance, i always saw him as turning into a truck and swoop into a jet. or maybe all of them minus swoop would turn into different trucks but thats just my thougt

    dinobots would be quite awsome but only such that look like dinosaurs as robot and still have vehicles.
    i hope for a toy dinobot
