I still meant Dinobot, even if its not exactly a raptor. What was Dinobot back on Cybertron, other than the excavator figure that we got? He coulda been some sort of beast.
"Theft of the Golden Disk" takes place immediately before the "Dawn of Future's Past" comic, and both of which take place immediately before episode 1 of the Beast Wars cartoon since they both lead directly into it.
The Maximals and Predacons of the Beast Wars cartoon traveled back in time to prehistoric times from the Cybertron of their own era, which is a future era set some 300 years after the era of Generation 1. The Beast Era Predacons are the descendants of the G1 Decepticons, with the only difference between each being that the Predacons are downsized to be roughly the size of Earth humans instead of giant-sized
. The size reduction took place during the Great Upgrade as a means to support energy conservation.
Just it had been common for the Autobots and Decepticons, the Maximals and Predacon all very likely turned into primarily vehicle modes on Cybertron. Dinobot turned into an excavator on Cybertron and was never shown as having been anything else prior to that form.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
