Via "Transformers Cars" facebook page, a TF4 crew member's hoodie reveals something very interesting. It appears to be Grimlock's Robot Mode. There are signs of dinosaur kibble everywhere, most prominently in the shoulders. If not Grimlock, then it must be one of the Dinobots. Check it out:

'wham bam it's the Dino jam!'

If this is Grimmy (or any dinobot) then I must say I am pleasantly surprised. They were never gonna look like their old selves, at least this doesn't look a crazy monster of a mess. I thought they would try and be 'creative' and 'think outside the box' ala Starscream McChicken legs.
The toy's gonna suck though :P

Totally agree with this, I am very surprised and this is making me more excited to see this movie. He looks really awesome and has that tough leader presence that I think a lot of people were hoping for. I am SOOO thankful he doesn't have the crazy chicken legs :lol:

My fingers are definitely crossed for good looking figure!

Optimus, Bumblebee, and Grimlock all look pretty sturdy. They probably won't translate well into figures, but at least they'll look good on the big screen.

Also, those feet of his. While initial thought might think of elf shoes, those are obviously Gundam Deathscythe Hell Custom's feet. :michaelbay:

Would have been more appropriate as BW Megatron, especially with the flail weapon. That will probably be one of the repaints

Seems nice so far.

It's not his classic design, but I never really expected that anyway. I can totally get on board with this. This might be the first Bayverse movie that's actually fun. :D

No, he didn't. The body design would have been nice for BW Megs and the flail would be closer to G1 Megs. Making it a repaint into BW Megs would be a nice homage all around.

My initial thought to how the possible "Grimlock" looks. Mainly the head and shoulders. Not bad, actually pretty cool!

Not great, but could be a whole lot worse. So I guess the dinobots will all look like midevil knights.

This is clearly from observing the picture in its rough form. But it looks as if the left shoulder has what looks to be Slags muzzle/beak (Triceratops). The right should looks to be one of the others upper jaw/beak/muzzle. Possibly grimlocks, but I highly doubt it due to the shape, and the previously seen picture of Optimus riding Grimlock into battle.

This is entirely speculation, But from what I can tell, I believe that Michael Bay has introduced DINO KING into the fray. The dino bots combine to form the great Dino King! As I said, this is entirely speculation due to the poor picture posted.

To add to this, the fist on the right hand looks like a spiked tail from a What I would guess to be Slag (Stegosaurus) and the large staff/mace looks to be his spines from along his back as well.

I can only guess this at the moment, But I think that Snarl will become the left arm, Slag will become the right arm. While Grimlock will become the main body and legs. Also, If Swoop is in the fray, I think he would become part of the lower abdomen, while his wings drape around the sides of the thighs and possibly into the front of the combined robot.

Feel free to prove me wrong, as this is all best guess and speculation based on the provided picture.
