    Personally if you made your own Dinobot team that could transform into powerful dinosaurs what would it be?

    Personally i think the Ankylosaur and a raptor of some kind would have been great G1 style compliments to the genre.

    War vehicle to dinosaur robots!

    yes it's kind of like bruticus but I think this would really work for michael bay's Transformers2. Massive dynamics>>builds millitary dynobots


    DYNOBOTS:
    helicopter alternate mode - to robotic dinoosaur mode swoop
    armored troop carrier alternate mode - to robotic dinosaur mode sledge
    fuel truck alternate mode- to robotic dinosaur mode sludge (best pun)
    missle platform truck alternate mode to robotic dinosaur mode slag
    tank alternate mode to robotic dinosaur mode grimlock

    Personally, I like the Dinbots as they were... well, Sludge and Snarl both could have been something different.... like, Snarl could have been a Raptor, and Sludge... well... I don't know all the different kinds of dinosaurs, so...

    They could have been, but I think the idea was to go for dinosaur modes that everyone knew. Everyone knew what a stegosaurus and brontosaurus was back then (when people thought brontosauri actually existed :p ), so it would have been silly to leave them out in favour of a raptor (of some kind), which didn't really hit the public attention till Jurassic Park.
    If anything, I'd have thought Slag would be the least recognisable in that respect, as the triceratops would likely have been the least known of the dinos used. At least Swoop would be (and was) largely acknowledged as a 'pterodactyl', even if it was technically wrong.

    Actually, I do like Grimwing's idea of using the Dinobots' beast modes as their robot modes. That way, the disguise aspect isn't an issue, as that's what the vehicle modes are for, and the robot modes are well designed bestial combat machines. No reason they couldn't maintain their intelligence.

    Ah, what the hell, I'll play...

    Logical Dinobot additions/modernizations:

    Raptor (since those have been the dinos de riguer ever since Jurassic Park... and the claws could turn into nasty sickle-type weapons in robot mode)
    Ankylosaurus (tough and armored, the dinobot tank)
    Hadrosaur (fast-moving duck-billed dino)
    Plesiosaur (give the dinos some aquatic advantage... not technically a dinosaur of course, but then neither is Swoop)

    And their names? Respectively: Slice, Slam, Sprint, and Splash. :) 

    (Also acceptable names: Slash, Slay, Smash, Sledge, etc. Gotta keep that "s" theme...)

    I always thought an Ankylosaurus would have been cool... call him Armorhide.

    A Raptor would have been cool too... of course... that's what Dinobot was...

    Perhaps if they redo Sludge he could be a Apatosaurus or a Brachiosaurus (as we now know that Brontosauri do not actually exist). Or, if you want a really big one... Supersaurus... *yes, I'm kind of a dinosaur geek*

    Of course, in BW Neo... we got a huge cast of villains that were all dinos. My favorite of which is Archadis... Archaeopteryx FTW!

    Back when I wrote fanfics I had 9 dinobots....the five in real TF canon as well as an Anylosaurus, Elasmosaurus, Raptor, and Dimetrodon. A Spinosaurus, Styrakosaurus or Pachysepholasaurus would be awesome too done in the G1 style.

    Lego Dinobots

    The G1 Dinobots take forms of Lego Dinosaur toys but they don't grow tiny because of that, When they transform their pieces seperate and they form into their robot bodies.

    I'd worked on an idea for a Dimetrodon Dinobot, but never got it to work quite right.

    And, as has been pointed out here, a plesiosaur TF would be great. Magmatron's got the one, but I'd still like to see one that turns into it's own robot.

    Slam is perfect for Ankylosaurus. That form could easily be a sixth dinobot.
