    I see her as kind of snarky and sarcastic. Basically Animated Slipstream in personality and voice but as a Dinobot.

    Though sometimes I imagine Tara Strong voicing her with the typical Dinobot caveman speak.

    Like any other dinobot. Violent and either dumb or smart, depending on what the cartoon is doing.

    I'd like Slash to be the little-dog personality equivalent of Cliffjumper. Has a strong hatred of Soundwave's minions and will go after them first.

    when I think of female Dinobots, I think of large, strong,not as violent as Slag or as stupid as cartoon Grimlock. Like the Amazons from Futurama.

    That might work if they made another, deluxe sized female Dinobot, like a Ankylosaurus or Brachiosaurus.

    Actually she had to be ninja-type rather used brute force and cartoon caveman-character.

    I agree with what others have said, portray her as a normal TF and maybe as the sort of brains of the Dinobots. It would be a nice compliment to the Dinobot's brute force to have someone to reason things out and point that rage in the right direction. I'd also like to see her introduction to the Dinobots develop over time. At first, the Dinobots don't trust her and want anything to do with her but as time goes they start to accept her as a sort of kid sister.

    I'd be fine if they model her after the POTP Slash toy with a Raptor mode or maybe even upgrade her to a Spinosaurus. I'd love to see a G1 style Scorn even as a new female character.

    I'd make her exactly the same as the male Dinobots… Because why should a female version be any different. I think it would be sexist if she were far more intelligent than her male counterparts.

    I would definitely keep her with the same mental level as the rest of the Dinos. Like the violent nature of Bam-bam combined with the look of Pebbles, but maybe a bit more muscular. Like the amazons from Futurama. Ankylosaurus would be my choice as well.

    So I am not the best at drawing Transformers. Mechanical drawing was never my forte. But here is a quick small sketch (in a tiny sketchbook) of how I imagined her build, face, and semi-dino head. I didn’t think of where alot of the kibble would go, but it would most likely be armor. The flame spout on the side of her helmet would be like a cave-girl ponytail.

    Looks good. If you're stuck, you could always use Slag and Snarl's bodies as starting off points to how she might look and transform. Maybe you could have half of the club tail be detachable and be able to use as a mace.
