    Well I like..........LOVE Dinosaurs, so there's me.
    But I already know about it, so that kills that idea.
    I love finding random stuff online while I'm looking up unrelated things.

    Well, I remember this for being a comprehensive list both pre and post-earth.

    Also Strafe cameo and several Dinobot names before they were used such as Scorn and Slash

    I think the artist was a concept designer, not sure if official or not, but often in work for hire stuff artists create all sorts of concepts, and whoever asked for them takes their pick of the bunch, and leaves the rest.
    Meaning there are often cool things like this floating around on deviantart that may not appear elsewhere.
    I found it curious that their was not only art, and design but full profiles.

    Great find! This list is going to come in handy when the time comes to name a certain pair of female dinobots :ev:

    These are really cool, they'd make cool additions to Grimlock's inner circle.

    Their names are also really nice.

    I would have gone with a generic ankylosaurus over the gastonia but I like them as a whole. I think it would have been cool to have a small, scrappy, even slightly cunning raptor Dinobot.

    EDIT: And I just learned what an elaphrosaurus is. That is a raptor. An elaphrosaurus would be much, much longer.

    EDIT: The author really went out of his/her way to pick obscure species of popular dinosaurs instead of just going with the more generic ankylosaurus, pachycephalosaurus, raptor, and dilophosaurus. (Though stygimoloch is far easier to spell and pronounce.)

    I'm tired of every Dinobot excluding Grimlock and Paddles beginning with the letter S.

    When I saw these on Deviantart all I could think of was... "It would be really cool if the Dinobots were their own species of wildlife on Cybertron. It just so happens that Grimlock, Swoop, Snarl, Slag, Sludge, Paddles, Scorn, and Slash pledged a rocky allegiance with the Autobots."
