    Tough decision, but I love Swoop and Grimlocks a lot.

    Well a lot of them have animation and clipping issues and as an OCD dork that really kills a lot of them for me. Swoop's wings clip through his little, I don't know "vent" things on his torso when they flap. Snarl has a little roar animation he does when he transforms and it looks weird when you're moving and he's stuck roaring while sliding forward with no leg movement. He's also got a problem when you jump and shoot your missiles while in dino form, his head points up and the muzzle-flash comes out upward when your shots are going down. Grimlock is okay but I'm just not a huge fan of his alt mode in multiplayer... Don't misunderstand, I KNOW these are petty issues but they contribute to why I personally don't like to use them.

    I'd have say running around as a decepticon triceratops is my favorite though. Fewest graphical errors and he does a cool head sway thing when you're shooting your machine guns off.

    Slug and Snarl's dino-form idle animations are exactly the same. They do the 'head-sway' thing when standing still, not shooting.

    Ah, I guess I don't hold still much while playing. Either way, it was cool when he was doing it over and over for me. :p

    Grimlock, why? Because Space T-rex, that's why.

    I like them all, but a couple of personal observations:

    Does it seem to anyone else like Grimlock is actually superior to regular tanks? Firstly, the fact that he's about twice as tall means that the camera is situated higher behind him, which I've found makes shooting the cannon FAR more accurate as you have a better sense of depth, also he just feels more agile when fighting in close, like he has tighter turning circle.

    I'm noticing LOTS of Swoops just hovering in the air shooting missiles, or not even doing anything at all - I can picture the players sitting with eyes glazed over and jaws hanging open, going 'Guuuuuuuuuuuuhhhh' at his hypnotic flapping action (perfectly understandable though, it IS very beautiful...almost...mesmerising...).

    Swoop I use most, since I like to play a healer/support role, but Snarl offers what I consider the coolest appearance options.

    I'd like to add to this that while "boosting" in dino mode, I feel that Slug, Snarl, and Grimlock have better maneuverability than the vehicle mode of the classes, mostly when it comes to corners. With a slight difference between the tanks and Grimlock, Snarl and Slug seem to make sharper turns than the cars and trucks. Also the dino modes appear to have a higher jump than their vehicle counterparts, and I only say "appear" because I'm not 100% sure, I'm gonna need a buddy to test the theory. And while I'm at it, their "hover" modes also feel tighter than their vehicle counterparts too, it feels like I'm in robot mode whether than an actual vehicle mode.

    Mind you this is all excluding Swoop since he really isn't that different from the other jets.

    Either Grimlock, Slug or Snarl. Probably Grimlock.

    Changed my tune, T-rex is the best because of the height of the cannon. You can look straight down and shoot, it's amazing, not to mention you can still boost through windows and his head just clips through the wall. XD

    Snarl, without a doubt...his rolling ball-o-death transforming animation is so fucking awesome.

    I've only picked up the chest pieces of Slug and Swoop, so I can't really give an accurate judgement. I am enjoying using Slug's alt-mode, though. Love Snarl's transformation (watching it in the customization menu).

    Swoop's my fave...but I am biased, since he is my fave Dinobot. :D 

    I like Snarl's...It's a shame that due to the parts swap...they had to minimize the size of his tail-split wings on his back. They looked awesome in the regular game.
