    I've grown to care very little about him honestly

    Don't have one. I usually don't like stand ins. I either have an actual representation or none at all.

    I don't have a Que, Soundwave, Shockwave, Hatchet, and Crowbar anyway, so I may as well forget about Dino.

    Swerve is actually the bot i would suggest as well, (I actually have a Swerve as a Sideswipe stand in for my collection, because to me movie Sideswipe should have been Blue/Silver Streak). Its the G1 in me I guess but it is a great bot design, and head sculpt good choice!

    considering he had very little air time (he wacked the dreads and told some border guards to sit down)....not really caring....

    Didn't care for him from the start, and now since Movieverse is over (for the time being, at least) I care even less.

    Meh. If I come into extra money any time soon, I might look into requesting a commission, but either way oh well.

    I want people to shut up about him. Seriously, get over it.

    I also use Swerve as a sort of red sports car stand-in...though I still call him Swerve.

    I'm going to buy that Cyberverse Mirage just to laugh and shake my head at it.

    He's so insignificant, it doesn't really matter.

    Yup, Dino is so insignificant that people can't seem to stop posting threads about him.

    Or about what model printer Laserbeak was, or how dinosaurs can be realistic in a movie, or how rotf sucked...

    Insignificant.

    Don't really care much about him one way or the other, but I'd probably just use RotF Swerve if I ever felt the need for a Mirage stand-in.

    Dino kind of went in one eye and out the other for me. He never really left an impact so I really don't need a representation.

    I just use my imagination, I think REALLY hard (like you're having a really big dump) and magically Masterpiece Dino with full Ferrari licensing appears on my shelf with Jeremy Clarkson voice and everything.

    Oh wait thats not right, I don't care.

    I am pretty much in same situation. I use Swerve with pcc Darkscream head standing in for Sideswipe currently, once Rotf Sideswipe i purchased from a fellow board member arrives, Swerve will stand in for "red sports car bot with arm blades". Not sure which head i will use though. I don't like actual Swerve head but i guess it resembles movie Mirage better.
