*EditIf this is too long, just skip to the bottom and answer the questions, please. So for those who don't know, back in Generation 1, be it comic or the TV series, we were introduced to the highly popular and lovable Dinobots! Here's the team: Grimlock the leader and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Slag second in command, has a bit of a temper and a Triceratops. Sludge very strong, but also not so bright and a Apatosaurus. Snarl a loner and a Stegosaurus. Swoop only flyer, also a bombardier and a Pteranodon. Those are the five that anyone 30 years old and over know! Over the years we have seen the Dinobots appear in multiple comics always same 5 characters, just have different stories. As for TV, we see the Dinobots make a return in December 2007 to the series Animated which featured: Grimlock, Swoop and Slag(he was actually named Snarl on the show). They didn't play a huge role in the series, but it was nice to see some Dinobots back on screen! Quick side note, if you haven't seen Animated and love Transformers, do yourself a favor and pick up the 3 season series on Blu-ray(Amazon is a good place to pick it up). In 2007 we also get Transformer's in live-action on the BIG SCREEN! I know this can be a touchy subject because some fans can't really stand Michael Bay and what he did with the Transformers, but like it or not they have become part of the Transformers continuation. Another TV series was created, Prime, which had the characters looking like a combination of live-action and Animated. There were also 2 games made by High Moon Studios, War for/Fall of Cybertorn, the character design for these games are highly regarded. They have a great mix of that Generation 1 aesthetic, but are completely Cybertonian because they have not been to Earth yet, that's were Prime somewhat pick's up in 2010, they are considered to be in the same continuity. In the second game we got the Dinobots; Grimlock, Slug(Slag), Swoop, Snarl and Sludge, they are all in the game, no Dinobots are in Prime. Quickly before I continue, there is a follow up to the show Prime which had 3 seasons and a movie Prime: Predacons Rising, it is scheduled to be released in Spring 2015 and the only details we have is: It has been years since the events of Predacons Rising. Bumblebee is summoned to Earth to battle a new generation of Decepticons and assembles a rogue team of young Autobots that includes a rebel "Bad Boy Bot," an Elite Guard cadet, a bombastic Dinobot, and a hyperactive Mini-Con. This new series has also been confirmed as Transformers: Robots in Disguise The only character revealed are Bumblebee, Sideswipe and a bot named Fixit, some speculate he is the Mini-Con, but we have No idea who the cadet or Dinobot will be!? Finally in 2014, we get a new live-action film, Age of Extinction, this is the very first time they are on the BIG SCREEN and this is the cast of Dinobots: Grimlock a Tyrannosaurus, and leader. Slug a Triceratops. Strafe a two-headed Pteranodon. Scorn a Spinosaurus. Now as of right now we don't know much about these characters other than they are Dinobots refereed to as Legendary Warriors. So here is a list of characters that have been mentioned and never made it to the "big stage" part of the team or shown in any comic, video-game or TV series: Skar who was a tactical medic and accidentally killed by Grimlock and we never saw a Dino-transformation from him. IDW comics. Paddles a Elasmosaur(dinosaur sea creature) in another version of the Generation 1 cartoon never made he would've been wave 2 of the Dinobots that were made in S.O.S. Dinobots. It'd been Grimlock & Slag wave 1, Snarl & Paddles[/B] Slash a Velociraptor that was going to be in AOE, but was cut for unknown reasons. Slog a Apatosaurus, who many believe is the AOE version of Sludge with a name change just like Strafe is "supposed" to be Swoop in AOE. There was also a version of Snarl, which was still a Stegosaurus, that never made it into Age of Extinction. I have a few questions that I'd like to see people give answers to. Question 1. Would you like to see any of the characters who never "made it" get added to a comic, video-game or TV/Movie? Question 2. Which team do you like better, Team 1 the original 5 or Team 2 the AOE squad? Question 3. Would you say that Strafe is Swoop and that Slog is Sludge? Question 4. If you could make your own team of Dinobots with a limit of 5, who would you choose, what version, G1, Animated, War for/Fall of Cybertron, Prime or Age of Extinction and why? Question 5. Do you think we should leave the Dinobots alone and keep the original team as "the" Dinobots or would you like to add more? If you'd like to add, would they be any of the characters mentioned or NEW characters? Questions 6. Final question who do you think the Dinobot will be in the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise? All we know is the Dinobot will be bombastic, only two Dinobots that exist have had these terms used to describe them are Swoop and Scorn or will we see a completely new Dinobot?
