    I tried to get excited for the possibility of Dinobots combining and...I just don't have it. They always fail to live up to the original Megazord.

    I think it's that dinosaurs are so freaking cool that it's always a disappointment to see them tacked onto some big gray humanoid.

    Wow, it's page 13 and you are definitely the first person to ask this.

    How did I fail to come up with that myself? Boycott, guys. Who's with me?

    They DO explain where Dinosaurs on Cybertron come from which is why no one asked.

    I wish we received more Cybertronian toys last time around (I would have loved a WfC Shockwave, Brawl, Arcee, Slipstream, and Air Raid...) so here's hoping there's enough interest for a full sub-line.

    Well, it’s understandable why the first game got so few toys—there was no guarantee that the first game would do well...or the toy sales of that game. I imagine we’ll see the same amount and a few more this time around, given the game’s success and that of the brand.

    It would be nice to get some Dinobots. If Matt Tieger’s passion means anything, I think it’s safe to say he did his best to persuade Aaron Archer to make toys of key figures this time around—You know he wants toys of every single one of these figures just as much everyone else here does too.

    On Cybertron, weren't they a vehicular warrior team referred to as the DYNObots? Then they followed Shockwave to pre-historic Earth, chose beast forms of that era to survive in the harsh environment, and were trapped underground with Shockwave, til the Autobots unearthed them in present day? And then re-titled DINO-bots?

    What place to pre-historic Earth lizard forms have on Cybertron?! High Moon, you have done a mess-up.

    How is that a mess up? They did have a good explanation for the Dinobot's origin in this countinuity.During his time on earth before he left back to his own solar system, Shockwave just studied the life forms when it had Dinosaurs and applied them to Grimlock and his team when they are on a different planet.This is not the same as the other G1 origins we've had from the original TV show and comics in the past.

    looks like slag's gotten a new less offensive name... slag is junk but a slug is a faulty bullet better than nothing i guess
