Oh. Oh yes. Yeeeeessssss. :PREDACON:
Since it seems the only chance I'll have to play this game with friends will be in the Multiplayer versus modes, I'd really like a chance to see what sort of bots we can come up with.

Trypticon barely looks like a dinosaur. Just looks like some giant reptile. As its been explained, chances are cold-blooded life forms had been discovered for Trypticon to be based off. The dinobots on the other hand are very clearly "Dinosaurs".

bah! I didn't need any explanation. It's like asking why the Autobots and some Decepticons transform into vehicles with human-sized cockpits, even though humans were still nothing but a gleam in some apes' eyes at the time. I tend to just go with it.

Regardless of the redundancy of the origin story, it does sound like we might get some cool Shockwave Vs Dinobot smackdown action, so I'm all for that.


I thought the commonly used reasoning for the Transformers having cockpits was something like the Quintessons hardwired them into the Transformers programming or mechanical DNA or whatever during a period where the Quints had taken them over as slaves. Something along those lines anyway.

I'm more confused as to how they came up with the name "Dinobots" for these creatures and coincidentally humans came up with the name "Dinosaurs" millions of years later... or is that just the translating of Transformers speaking Cybertonian into English giving us the closest approximation and thus we get the name "Dinobots" in English as opposed to the Cybertronian word "Chazwazza" (or whatever :-? )?

I wonder if anyone else at High Moon is a s passionate about Transformers as Matt Tieger or whether they all want to tp his home for pushing them to do justice to the brand he loves?

The Quintessons installed those cockpits into the TFs when they invaded Cybertron during the Age of Wrath (no, not the Dreamwave comic series, a different Age of Wrath).

Since the term "Dinobot" isn't spoken during any the in-game footage we see in this video, it might be that the five are not actually called "Dinobots" in the game at all, only being referred to as such by the game's creators and merchandise and such.

Seeing as the root meanings for the word dinosaur, scientifically speaking, mean "terrible lizard," I wouldn't be surprised if Shockwave himself, being the scientist that he is, could have accurately come up with that name himself, coincidentally.

Then again, the root words that science based its names off of we're derived from Latin, which would have been too far in the future, according to the time setting of this story.

Then AGAIN, in Dotm, Sentinel said that the space bridge bends the fabric of TIME and space and defies our laws of physics.

THEN AGAIN, in Dotm, Sentinel was the one to create the space bridge, not Shockwave, and would thus render the comparison between the two incompatible.

:-? :-B

well, getting that particular mix of different dinosaur species would require a fair amount of bending time and space anyway, so why worry?

Like I said, about the cockpits: It doesn't matter, just enjoy!
