    Wow this thread became incredible in the last half hour.

    I loathe Prime Tailgate so much for poisoning minds into thinking Tailgate isn't the incredibly adorable and entertaining little sprite he is in MTMTE. The fact that people even compare them or mention the Prime "version" russles my James'.

    To be quite fair Prime Tailgate was only for a few seconds so we didn't see what his character's really like. For all we know if he had lived he'd be just like his MTMTE version. :lol

    I'm making the easy prediction that Shockwave will be the tie in. I doubt Dino's will be in the show. Sadly.


    -ZacWilliam, I'm just hoping they don't kill the Dino's off. The Prime Universe is way too dead and sparse already. It'd be a waste.

    Actually from what we heard of him he sounds just like Cliff in terms of personality.

    And he looks like him.

    ORIGINALITY IS HARD

    Except he's not eve a character. He's a prop, and a bad one at that.

    And no, he can't be like the MTMTE version. That's not me being me, it's like he actually can't. MTMTE Tailgate is shaped by circumstances that really can't be replicated.

    And even if he was, that just makes it worse since they then just killed off the best character in the show.

    Yes. As much as I'm not a fan of the Dinobutts, ANY new characters are a welcome injection of life into the dead, empty, lifeless world of Prime.

    Dinobots in Shrek-former land = pointless...

    I mean who's left for the Dinobots to fight once Arcee flicks her wrist an kills an entire Decepticon army???

    But I'm fine.

    What?

    Oh.

    You meant " 'Jammies".

    Awkward...

    Why aren't you on my ignore list yet?

    Eh, that's easy to correct.

    On one hand, the amount of info is really disappointing. On the other...I'm glad that they didn't spoil who's in the DJD. I was worried that they would, and I'd rather let it be a surprise. :lol

    I doubt it. The Dinobots are major characters in the game and in the algined countinutiy and the worst case is that they get stuck on Cybertron for a while then later they get to Earth on the show. And that the writers said that while they may not appear on the show yet they also didn't say they won't be like Ironhide.

    I think that's what makes it so funny. Horribly funny.

    That is how they all die by the way. They arrive on Earth, try to swing on vines like George of the Jungle and bash against a guava tree.

    I for one think it'd be entirely possible to work the Dinobots into the Prime show proper--for one serviceable example, check out this DeviantArt piece:http://my.deviantart.com/messages/#/d51ltv6 (no, I did not write it, I'm merely citing it as an example)
    It's less than perfect---the writer tries to shoehorn in a few too many characters than I'm sure the show's character model 'budget' could realistically allow, but the overall concept of the Dinobot characters matches up decently with their portrayal in other recent media (FoC, IDW) and still gels with the feel of the show.
    I'm just sayin'...it's possible. Likely, maybe not...we're lucky we got the LSC in the new game at all....

    What would you say if we told you that the big announcement was the My Little Pony comic?

    I honestly forgot TFP Tailgate even existed. In fact, after reading a bunch of MTMTE issues something clicked and I was like "Wait, wasn't there someone else in recent TF fiction who was named Tailgate?

    ...

    Oh yeah, the non-character from Prime!"

    :lol  Don't ever change, dude.

    Guess all the hurrah over Dinobots in FoC pretty much convinced Hasbro to find some way of featuring them in Prime.

    Then again... "Aligned" continuity and all... not saying both should be the same universe (they shouldn't) but... well, ask Hasbro about that hubub... *smh*
