    it has been explained why, but saying so would be a potential spoiler

    but now i get down to what i really wanted to say:
    will someone stop the person making these designs from making headsculps? swoop is HORRIBLE....worse than grimlock's and grimlock already has an ugly headsculp. Slag here is passable but SHEESH all the new designs are basically needing new work done on their heads, it isn't good, and is making me not look forward to toys if they get made

    the bodys are perfect, its just those heads look like crap. and i am GLAD they aren't playing the "dumb dino" thing for them, grimlock is gonna be done right as a smart battle warrior and leader, i can deal with his speech being messed up, as long as he isn't an idiot

    What the guy before me said. hahahaha

    Yes please make the Dinobots in toy form and please make all 5. There were 3 of them in TF Animated but they always felt like they were missing the other two. Hasbro please make it right this time.

    I was also just thinking, given that it is likely the FOC toys will likely be in the "Generations+" line that'll mean we'll only get them in deluxe sized. *sigh deluxe works well for most TF but seriously need a voyager size as well. I can at most see Snarl, Slag and Swoop in deluxe size but Grimlock and Sludge need to be voyager sized.

    The in-game reason is that Shockwave is studying Earth animals for whatever reason and somehow that translates into the creation of the Dinobots.

    Makes next to zero sense when thought about, but then again so does a planet entirely made of metal and populated by transforming robots who hate each other's innards.

    True.

    I think Grimlock was confirmed by a source (verified by a mod) to be lined up for a toy, along with Starscream, Ironhide and Ratchet.

    Plus, Hasbro does NOT need to make figures for the games in the first place. The movie line is absurdly profitable (and in all fairness is probably why Hasbro was willing to let another TF game be made, since the movies have allowed the franchise to branch out into areas even G1 didn't go into).

    And finally, calling the people you want to make you toys morons probably isn't the best way to convince them it's a good idea.

    God, if Hasbro does a full set of FOCking Dinobots I will build a FOCking shrine to honor the Plastic God that is Aaron Archer.

    Also, really wanna see Sludge. Evidently he looks awesome, and he has a sad story. I hope he doesn't die. :(

    I love these designs. I dont agree with the earlier posts about their heads not looking very good. Only problem is swoopts robot mode head but others are out standing! I'm in love.

    I'm honestly surprised Hasbro didn't come up with "Slug" as an alternative for "Slag" when the whole naming issue became a problem; it's got that G1-esque "Transformer-sounding" name built right into it, and is a great way to get around the whole "what do we call the Stegosaurus" issue.

    man, slag's robot mode is gnarly. bad ass. im loving all the dinobot love this game is getting. but i do have one thing to say. i do hope this game's single player campaign is longer than WFC. fitting both dinobots, combaticons, and all the other stuff is going to take up at least 15 levels. IMO.
