    Hi, I tried doing a forum search for this, as I assumed the question has been raised, but couldn't find anything.

    QUESTION: How is it that Grimlock is an Earth dinosaur in the cybertron games? These games are before the Transformers came to Earth correct?

    How is this explained?

    Shockwave looked at Dinosaurs in his super-telescope and thought they were awesome.

    Pretty much this. Of course, if you want a full answer:

    Shockwave discovered Dinosaurs on Earth while he was researching it through some high-tech means. He thought the idea of robot dinosaurs as alt. modes was a neat idea, so he essentially had the Dino/Dynobots (whatever spelling they use, both have been used in various cannons) kidnapped and he experimented on them. So far, we've only seen Grimlock, and from what I have heard his transformation isn't exactly "manual", or in other words he has this "Rage" meter that, when it fills up, auto-forces him to turn into his dino mode.

    Which means the Grimlock/Dinobot levels are gonna be SOOOOOOOOOO scripted. May as well put it on rails at this rate.

    Trypticon. No one's going to question him?

    EDIT: Cybertron has spiders and Slugs what about that?

    Thanks. The writers will do anything to sell toys, won't they?

    If we get toys like they did on WFC then don't expect Leader Class. WFC were all deluxes.

    They weren't explicitly said to be imitations of Earth life.

    The main reason is because you know the toy will be badass and will sell a lot better than a tank.

    Still, a WFC Grimlock figure would be pretty cool. I'm hoping for a Jazz too. Maybe Ratchet.

    Trypticon wasn't a dinosaur in the first game, more of a monster. Just like he was in the War Within comics.

    your not suposed to question the awesomeness of this game :lolol 
    a huge mechanical dinosaur is way more interesting than a tank, or what ever else he could otherwise be

    It was the other way round. Hasbro didn't want to include the Dinobots but High Moon desperately wanted them.
