    Let me be clearer, what kind of Giant Dinosaur Robot would they turn into?

    That still isn't clear at all. Give some examples of the different kinds.

    Simple. Some guys wanted something edgy. They got it.

    That might end up happening at some point down the line.

    Yes and yes. It just makes total sense to me after they were domesticated, so to speak. Shuraking is the coolest bot I have ever seen, but is totally out of scale for my collection otherwise I'd own it, hands down.

    Didn't want a Dinobot combiner as my main Classics representations, so I went with the ones that fit the best in my collection. I love FansProject's aesthetics and ToyWorld Roar is $45 off... so I couldn't pass the chance to complete the group for now until FansProject releases their Snarl.

    Retro-Future did an awesome job at a Dinobot-esque combiner.

    Yes if it was new characters.

    Because Dinobots are awesome, that's why!

    Dinobots that combine into a larger robot would just mean a larger concentration of awesome.

    I would like Generations Dinobots other than Grimlock. Voyager or Leader class would be nice.

    But I could see Hasbro screwing the pooch with some half-assed Dyno combiner set thus ruining either the bot mode or the traditional Dinosaur modes thanks to an unnecessary 3rd mode or pointless gimmick. (See TR Galvatron, A3, etc.).

    So for the record all I want are regular Dinobots please!

    That's exactly what I was thinking and the whole reason I wandered into this thread. I was just watching the Transformers episode "Nightmare Planet" yesterday and all I could think about is how cool it would have been for the Predacons to face off against the Dinobots. Swoop and Divebomb would have made very good adversaries, as would Headstrong or Tantrum with Slag. There would be so many cool battles between the 2 groups, and the Dinobots would need an answer for Predaking.

    All Dinobots being voyager class is excessive, and all Dinobots being leader class is stupid and pointless. Thank every deity that Hasbro doesn't listen to people on the boards.

    I am always interested in new Dinobot toys. I'm also interested in new Dinobot characters, even though most never receive much characterization. In general, more robot dinosaurs are good. When does Paddles get a figure?

    I would love a 6-part combiner with Paddles. It would finally be the Autobot combiner counterpart to Devastator I always envisioned (Omega Supreme doesn't count because he's not a combiner, dammit!).

    I reckon Paddles deserves a shot. If Windblade can get three toys and a spot at a TV show, so can everyone's favourite Plesiobot.

    My choice for the next Fan's Choice vote: anything that can get us a Paddles figure. Obviously there's a growing demand.

    Well the Dinobots are awesome, and Combiners are awesome so a Dinobot Combiner would logically be twice as awesome.

    I'm totally onboard with the idea.

    You are aware of Swoop and Divebomb's relationship in Marvel G1, right? I would prefer the original Dinobots not be changed into a combiner team - "The Beast Within" has soured me on that idea - but I like your idea of Predacon/Dinobot rivalry.

    "The Beast Within" is a lot of people's excuse to vote against it. I would think that means its high time someone did something decent with a Dinobot combiner to cleanse our proverbial palates then, since this has become such a cliche.

    If I had not read the comments I would have first voted for yes. Combiners are so cool, what could be the problem? But then you did have a point by bringing the Dinobots' personalities. They would not like it. Though their combiner would be really really cool but the Dinobots wouldn't want to form it very often, Personality is very important, not just the coolness of a toy. They would have to be forced to combine.
