The Dinobots' dinosaurs archosaurs weren't around all at the same time, though. Stegosaurus and Apatosaurus went extinct something like 70 million years before Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, and Pteranodon showed up; that's roughly the same time difference between T. rex and us! Shockwave would have to be watching Earth for a looooooooooong time.


Thanks Noideaforaname, that was what I was meaning about dinosaurs. The way I under stand the WfC/FoC is that space bridge technology is old but for a time it's usage fell out of common use and so Cybertron was cut off from the rest of the robot inhabited worlds. They only got the ability to use the space bridges in WfC. Unless FoC takes place millions of earth years after WfC, there is no way that Shockwave could have emulated those five dinosaurs.

To date, only two continuities have plausable origins for the dinobots. The G1 show and Animated. In G1, they were created after they arrived on earth after they found fossils of dinosaurs. Their intelligence was explained by them not being fully Cybertronian and Wheeljack couldn't make them as intelligent as Cybertronians. Why they didn't take the Dinobots to Vector Sigma after it was discovered like they did the Arialbots isn't explained. In Animated, they are animatronic dinosaurs that get life from the shards of the Allspark. They are able to gain robot modes too but they didn't have large brain capacity.

However, I look past the innacuarcies and don't let them distract me from the show/comic/game. I saves the headache, trust me.

One last note, I love your name Noideaforaname :)

There's not much in the way of dlc that I actually look forward to getting a hold of. I can tell you that this is one of those few.

I'm still pissed Sludge isn't going to be included. They've gone to so much trouble making this special Dinobot pack, why not bump the player count up to five? All I can to Sludge's absence being explained in the single player game is you can still play as Zeta Prime in FoC for crying out loud.

What I am thinking, is the Space Bridge makes a hole in Space and Time, since they are linked. So it is possible that in Shockwave's experiments, he looked at Earth at different times. And according to some of the files you hear on the Grimlock level, he brought some of the Dinos back, probably initially to test the stability of the bridge, but then for new form ideas.

Plus the ancients had already done extensive research of earth, stored in the ruins Cliffjumper explored could have filled in some gaps.

I like Grimlord mold. From the front, he's smaller than a tank = harder to hit and don't get in the way of friendly shots.

Would anyone be so kind as to provide nice stills of the Insecticon bits of the video? I'd like to view more of them so I can sorta plan for future character-creating shenanigans.

I'm bummed by the price on these. Getting other DLC, you often get a full level or two to play PLUS the skins. Seems like $10 is high for just extra characters. Still, I do want to get them. Hoping they may get bundled in the future. :-?

Okay, bring the soup!!!!

Eh, still need to play a lot more before I start to get the DLC. I always get all of it but I like to divide it a bit.

Hopefully Escalation will get some love in the future, I played WFC Escalation for a lot of hours. I think it's the best mode of the whole game.

A little shame that in FOC you can only choose between 4 characters each map. I know the "classes" but they can make it so you can choose between Optimus and Cliffjumper if you choose the "shield guy" skill.

And pray to Primus that they make a Bruticus multiplayer mode, which can be like Escalation and when you combine each player gets like 30 to 60 seconds to control Bruticus and after all are done they go back to the Combaticons.

Joy!!!
Can't, but will wait, till I play G1 Optimussssss!
