    So now that I've gotten a couple of the Dinobots, I'm starting to wonder what we could get if Hasbro decided to give us more. As in remolds of the existing Dinobots to give them different dinosaur altmodes.

    Scorn- I talked about this when I commented in the toy review thread for him. Take off the sail, remold the beast head, and maybe the tail and robot mode head. I think you could get a good Dilophasaurus easily enough with that. If they want to go the full JP look give it the neck frill, and that could make a really good robot mode shield. People suggested names like Spittor, or Spit.

    Slug- I think someone did a fan version of Skar from Monstrocity or fan art of something of him once as a Styracasaurus. That wouldn't require changing too much, just the heads and hopefully the weapons.

    Grimlock- In his case the Beast mode wouldn't be a huge change, since T-Rex has those tiny arms. Probably a T-Wrecks or BW Megs with a new robot head, and in megs case weapon.

    Now we're getting into the ones I don't yet have.

    Slash- Well we've seen raptors remolded into Pachycephalosaurs before. Lets do it again. The beast mode head and weapons, plus the claws would need to be changed. And the feathers would need to be taken off. So it would be a little more extensive remold. For the name, how about Smash or Skull?

    Strafe- A real tricky one, due to his having two heads in beast mode. Without actually having the figure I'm not going to try anything for this one.

    Snarl- Definitly and Ankylosaurus. Take off the plates, remold the back and sides to sport armor, and make his tail become a club for robot mode. Remolding for the shell might end up being a little more extensive though. Maybe like Generations Springer and Sandstorm. Actually a lot like How sandstorm has the additional parts for tailfin and VTOL rotors.

    Slog- Getting him remolded into a different beast mode would actually be damn difficult. Brachiasaurs had very different porportions for their legs and tail. For say, an Apatasaurus you'd need to change the dino head, and then all four limbs and the tail exensivly.

    Cool ideas. Personally the Strafe remold could be just as simple as making it a one head. Lol

    Scorn could be a lot of things. Obviously, he'd make a great BW Megatron, but I also thought he'd look good remolded as a hadrosaur because he's the closest we'll get to a hadrosaurian body plan and we need more hadrosaurs.

    Voyager Grimlock would make an awesome Carnotaurus character if you just shorten the muzzle and change the dino-arms.

    I'd remold Slash by replacing his dino-arms with a pair of wings because dromaeosaurs almost definitely had clawed wings.

    Thing is that Scorn would probably need bigger Dino mode arms for a hadrosaur. They spent a lot of time on all fours after all. (fun fact. No fossil remains of Spinosaurus limbs have been found. Scorn's arms might be too small.) If the forelimbs are too big they'd throw off the balance and be really aweful kible in Robot mode. That's why I didn't suggest a Ouranosaurus remold, since that would keep the sail.

    I'd move the Horns on Grimlocks head forward, as I think their a bit too far back for a Carntaurosaurus. Then again as is Grimlock's eyes don't face forward enough for a T-Rex. (sorry, I was looking up Dinosaurs on Wikipedia.)

    I see your point on the hadrosaur bit, but looking at the toys shows that scientific accuracy, while not ignored, isn't that high on Hasbro's list of priorities(e.g. Grimlock's horns, Slash's inaccurate feathering.) Thus, while I agree hadrosaurs were mostly quadrupedal, there's nothing stopping Hasbro from keeping Scorn's arms(although it should be remolded into a hadrosaur-ish shape) and giving it a bipedal stance, since that was also feasible for hadrosaurs at least occasionally.

    Give him 2 new dragon-like heads, repaint him in dark gray with some red and white, add black and he is...

    Strafe, in tan, yellow, and purple as Cybertron Brimstone
    Slug, in dark green, tan, and black as Cybertron Wreckloose
    Slash in bone white and purple chrome as tm2 Dinobot
    Snarl, in a darker green, with some magenta back plates as Slugfest
    Grimlock, in red with blue stripe as T-Wrecks
    Slog, in blue, as Zaur

    A Strafe remold with a single, larger Pteranodon head that splits like Slug/Grimlock would be really nice.

    Bazooka and Goryu. Fractyl and Doryu.
    Guiledart Brimstone Cruellock and Gairyu.
    Oh, the things you can buy with a handful of bills.
    It makes me excited. It gives me the chills.
    There'll be Undermine Grimstone Dinobot and Rairyu.
    And even Swoop Kakuryu and Yokoryu.
    Maybe Dinoking from leader Grimlock that's bigger.
    I am the Snorax. I speak for the figures!

    retool strafe so his dual heads are just one head that splits in half for bot mode.

    wouldn't mind a pacycephalasaur from slash either
