    Hey guys, its Firestorm777(aka OP or Mad Scientist(!)) and today I thought it would be important to bring up this subject. I've seen lots of arguments about if Grimlock and the Dinobots should come to Prime. In this thread I'm going to be talking about why people might not like the idea of Grimlock in this show. This thread is for those who want Grimlock and might not know why other fans don't want him to come.

    For people who don't want him to come it might be because he would sort of be overpowered and he wouldn't fit into the whole convert thing. The main them this season is that there is Cybertronian technology hidden on earth. Both Autobots and Decepticons have to sneak around and explore and Grimlock dose not fit with that.

    As you can see in the FOC game plays he causes a lot of destruction to his surroundings. That wouldn't go nicely with Optimus's whole collateral damage thing. Agent Fowler would also not like that. While it dose make sense with the whole Optimus's rival thing, still. He would just be out of control, way too destructive and way too overpowered. And if Grimlocks coming then the other Dinibots might not be far behind. It just would not fit.

    This is in my opinion and if you agree or disagree then please leave it in the comments. If you have anything to add or if you think I left something out then please say so.

    Don't take this personally Grimlock fans, I just needed to explain why people might not want him.

    Because would you want this...monster in Prime?

    Look at this. Imagine if Grimlock was fighting in a city:

    That's like the video where the guy is showing kids how chicken mgnuggets are made. Doesn't make any difference. That video made me hungry for chicken mcnuggets and your post made me want Grimlock in TFPrime :D

    Yes, I am a Grimlock fan who wants to see him in Prime. They can tame him down for the show and make it work.

    If there is a hundred Insecticons introduced into the show and they can be kept on a leash, I am sure they can do that with a Dinobot.

    Imagine Grimlock fighting in a city on Prime? Imagine any of the bots doing that. I don't see the difference. Closest we have gotten to something like that was Tunnel Vision.

    The trend of the show has seemed to be most of the action is taking place away from populated areas or out of sight of humans to keep the show believable and simpler story so I can't see why they can't stick a Dinobot in there to even the odds and keep the show reasonable.

    I want to see him as the new house pet of the Autobot base and ready to ground bridge at any time to kick some Decepticon ass. :) 

    Especially if we had a Decepticon warship that can possibly be a bot, then why not?

    I mean seriously, if Unicron is being portrayed as the center of the earth, which is a stupid story line IMHO, I don't see what harm it is to have a Dinobot.

    I don't want Grimlock in Prime because I'm not a fan of Grimlock, and I'd rather see other characters before him. Not because of whether of not he'd work in the show

    But how? He can't be tamed! You saw that gameplay. Speaking of gameplay I was just on WFC and as a Scout jumped on top of a Scientist and melee. It did not kill him but it was cool! I just had to share that. I still don't think he can be tamed.

    I think thats what he'd at least try to do.

    Grimlock: Me Grimlock: Superior! Optimus: Inferior!

    (*Grimlock causes destuction to a city*).

    Agent Fowler: Why!? You loose cannon!

    Optimus instructs Team Prime
    "While Grimlock stays put to guard our exit point, we will sneak into the city disguised in vehic..."
    People screaming can be heard from the city
    "Oh my god, what's this? A space T-Rex?"
    Optimus looks over to that direction and gives it a facepalm

    "Grimlock will blow the Autobots' cover"

    Are you watching this tv show and understanding it is a tv show? He won't blow the Bots' cover if the writers don't want that story arc. Half the shit the TFs do should be noticed by the general public, but they never are, so that argument is out the window.

    Well, it's a good thing that 100% of what happens in terms of story, designs, characters, etc. in WFC/FOC doesn't translate 100% over to TFP. :rolleyes: 

    I approve of this idea.

    Your right that it dose. Some of the story dose not match. In WFC Optimus was not named Orion. But it is nice to see some new designs.
