Heyyyy, just because there are Vehicons more interesting than him doesn't mean it's cool to insult the dead.

I really hope these Dinobots turn out to not be more of the same ME GRIMLOCK SPACE T-REX guys. Fingers crossed.

I would like to point out that they drew FoC Swoop really wrong in that cover. He actualy looks like he can move his arms and legs like a functional organism and that goes against the lore and style of the games.

Rob Liefeld should've been the ideal artist for a series using those designs.

Incompetent as they are sometimes, the Prime writers are anything but gooftarded. The Dinobots will probably just be intelligent commandos like in the game.

I can't wait to check out the Dinobots in the TFP comic!

This makes me VERY happy and it's still a hint of them coming up on the show even if Hasbro said not really!

And I do love the fact that they look a lot like thier FOC versions!
Stardust262
Dammit, I hope the Dinobots don't show up in Prime.
Murasame
Uhm... is the live panel a video? Because nothing happens when I click the play button. It just opens the thread again...

Wow this thread became incredible in the last half hour.

I loathe Prime Tailgate so much for poisoning minds into thinking Tailgate isn't the incredibly adorable and entertaining little sprite he is in MTMTE. The fact that people even compare them or mention the Prime "version" russles my James'.

To be quite fair Prime Tailgate was only for a few seconds so we didn't see what his character's really like. For all we know if he had lived he'd be just like his MTMTE version.
ZacWilliam
I'm making the easy prediction that Shockwave will be the tie in. I doubt Dino's will be in the show. Sadly.


-ZacWilliam, I'm just hoping they don't kill the Dino's off. The Prime Universe is way too dead and sparse already. It'd be a waste.
Sinnertwin
Actually from what we heard of him he sounds just like Cliff in terms of personality.

And he looks like him.

ORIGINALITY IS HARD

Except he's not eve a character. He's a prop, and a bad one at that.

And no, he can't be like the MTMTE version. That's not me being me, it's like he actually can't. MTMTE Tailgate is shaped by circumstances that really can't be replicated.

And even if he was, that just makes it worse since they then just killed off the best character in the show.

Yes. As much as I'm not a fan of the Dinobutts, ANY new characters are a welcome injection of life into the dead, empty, lifeless world of Prime.

Dinobots in Shrek-former land = pointless...

I mean who's left for the Dinobots to fight once Arcee flicks her wrist an kills an entire Decepticon army???
Hot Shot.

Eh, that's easy to correct.

On one hand, the amount of info is really disappointing. On the other...I'm glad that they didn't spoil who's in the DJD. I was worried that they would, and I'd rather let it be a surprise.

I doubt it. The Dinobots are major characters in the game and in the algined countinutiy and the worst case is that they get stuck on Cybertron for a while then later they get to Earth on the show. And that the writers said that while they may not appear on the show yet they also didn't say they won't be like Ironhide.

This is actually brutally honest

I think that's what makes it so funny. Horribly funny.

Trees.

That is how they all die by the way. They arrive on Earth, try to swing on vines like George of the Jungle and bash against a guava tree.

I for one think it'd be entirely possible to work the Dinobots into the Prime show proper--for one serviceable example, check out this DeviantArt piece:http://my.deviantart.com/messages/#/d51ltv6 (no, I did not write it, I'm merely citing it as an example)
It's less than perfect---the writer tries to shoehorn in a few too many characters than I'm sure the show's character model 'budget' could realistically allow, but the overall concept of the Dinobot characters matches up decently with their portrayal in other recent media (FoC, IDW) and still gels with the feel of the show.
I'm just sayin'...it's possible. Likely, maybe not...we're lucky we got the LSC in the new game at all....

wait wasn't there supposed to be some big announcement or something?

What would you say if we told you that the big announcement was the My Little Pony comic?

I honestly forgot TFP Tailgate even existed. In fact, after reading a bunch of MTMTE issues something clicked and I was like "Wait, wasn't there someone else in recent TF fiction who was named Tailgate?

...

Oh yeah, the non-character from Prime!"

Don't ever change, dude.

Guess all the hurrah over Dinobots in FoC pretty much convinced Hasbro to find some way of featuring them in Prime.

Then again... "Aligned" continuity and all... not saying both should be the same universe (they shouldn't) but... well, ask Hasbro about that hubub... *smh*

The Dinobots can stay in the comics but not in the cartoon.
Ironhide1706
Shockwave > Dinobots. I'm looking forward to Shockwave more than them, even though Grimlock is one of my favourite characters.
Sideswipe80
Can't wait till Season 3. Prime got a lot more interesting now. Good to see the Dinobots get so much love.

Technically, no, they weren't. When someone asked about them appearing in the show, they said to "not necessarily, read the comic to understand". Not a confirmation, yet not a ruling out

Sounds like a no to me.

-ZacWilliam, just hoping it's not a "no, they die."

For me anything less the new testament (MTMTE/RID) and the Old Testament (Regeneration) is utter sacrilege....

Pondered it once though... but then begged God-formers for forgiveness and was forced to say 40 Hail Megatron's.

Praise the Allspark!
