    If Grimlock and maybe some other Dinobots were Wreckers?(Not in dino form)
    I'm considering doing that in one of my Fan Fictions.

    Yes, in my own TFP fan fiction, I have Grimlock and company as the first Wrecker unit before they were captured by Shockwave. I have Bulkhead, Wheeljack, Seaspray, ect as a second Wrecker united created two years following what happen with Grimlock's group.

    Would help to explain the difference between Grimlock and Optimus a bit more.

    The concept of The Wreckers needs to die.

    No. The Dinobots are their own team.

    No, they're Dinobots, completely separate to Wreckers. Even pre-Dino, they are usually called the Lightning Strike Coalition, which is again, not Wreckers.

    Personally, In my fan-multiiverse, i think of the dinobots once being wreckers but eventually formed their own group and became the wreckers rivals

    I think both the dinobots and the technobots would fit with the wreckers, so yeah if they used be on the squad I see no problem with it.

    I feel it's more the concept (and more recently so) that anyone that's bad-ass is or should be a Wrecker should die. Or to show someone is a bad-ass they're now a Wrecker, even if earlier versions of them weren't (although there are some rare worthy exceptions).

    The Dinobots are bad-asses on their own terms and in their own right. And they've got their own team already. They don't need to join any other team. They consider all other teams beneath them. The only way Grimlock would ever consider being a Wrecker would be if he was the leader of the Wreckers. And then he'd probably kick out all the non-dino members and rename the 'Wreckers' to the 'Dinobots'.

    Since I have no interest in getting a complete set of Dinobots, and since Hasbro only has one planned for the moment anyway, I'm planning to have FOC Grimlock with my Wreckers.

    They've been non-dinos in other incarnations, but it's tough to get their characters across without the dinosaur alt-mode. I would even say they're among characters that are most tied to a certain alt-mode, even if its an alt-mode that doesn't always fit the context of the story.

    No.

    Wreckers aren't Dinobots, and Dinobots aren't Wreckers. Personally, I would rather pretend that the new Aligned continuity Wreckers didn't exist. They're just throwing everyone badass into the Wreckers, and it ruins their whole concept.

    The Dinobots are lead by Grimlock, who does not listen to orders well if he disagrees. In fact, he will often blatantly ignore these orders when it suits him. They do what they want, often taking personal vendettas over orders.

    The Wreckers are a team of fighters, who are sent in if no one else can do it. They listen to their orders (Usually), and their ranks are constantly shifting. Unlike the Dinobots, who almost always have the same characters in their ranks.

    Being badass doesn't make you a Wrecker, and you don't need to be a Wrecker to be a badass. Dinobots are Dinobots, occasionally the Lightning Strike Coalition, and Wreckers are Wreckers.

    They did indeed. In Spotlight: Shockwave, the Dinobots tracked Shockwave down to take revenge for destroying the energon they were carrying, despite Prime's orders for them to forget about it.

    In Spotlight: Grimlock, we saw the effect of this. The Dinobots were unearthed, and a human organization was trying to bring them back online under their control. Grimlock is considered a rogue Autobot, and he is stranded on Earth without his team. He also went on a small rampage.

    I selected 'No' because selecting 'Your an idiot' for someone who wants to write a fan-fiction and not use correct grammar in a simple poll option seemed too fitting.

    Oh yeah, and anytime I ever read someone post "an idea for my fan-fiction" I instantly cringe.
