It's when you hear him saying "Yesss, my queen..." that you should worry...

Tramp wrote:GlauG is correct. The DW continuity is different than the old Cartoon continuity and the Marvel continuity. It is based upon the toys backstories as stated in their bio-cards. It takes some elements from both the old cartoons and Marvel comics, but rejects others in favor of what the toys said about each of the characters. Read the character bios in TF:More than Meets the Eye for Grimlock and the other Dinobots. They don?t mention anything about Wheeljack building them, nor of them being built on Earth. They came from Cybertron and had Cybertronian forms. Originally, they went by the name Dynabots as in Dynamite.
War Within fits better with the marvel Comics continuity. war Within was written by Simon Furman, who was the Writer for transformers at most of Marvel U.K. and the last one for Marvel US. He had to fix all ofthe losse ends and try to make things work into a single continuity. The Bob Budiansky, as well as favoered by Furman, idea that was in the Comics was that the dinobots were awakened on the ark during the days of the Dinosaurs, actually Marvels Savage Land, to battle the newly arrived Shockwave. They defeated him, but were lost in a pool of tar and later searched out by Buster the comics version of Spike, actually spikes little brother) and Ratchet when the decepticons had captiured Optimus Prime and were using the Matrix program from his head to try to create new Decepticons. I always thought of the War Within Dynobots, as in Dynamic. I like their first two series of War Within subgroup name better. LSC = Lightening Strike Coalition.

As the come more available to me, I will try to get read up on the stuff.
I do know that Simon is using the newer dreamwave and now IDW platforms to better create a more fluent continuity for the transformers.
i do like the LSC as an group idea rather than the name dynobots. It better fits the idea of a group allegiance, coalition, than prefabricated group.
