If so, the future seems bleak for the cons, eh? -Their leaders/2nd-in-command are dead, the Autobots hunt/kill them with no negotiations, and now angry humans and their man-made TFs + Cybertronian Dinos :lol:

Also, fun stuff pre-ROTF time, remember this poll?

no negotiations.. have you ever been in war before? .. do you think militaries everywhere negotiate with their enemies before they're killed? .. get off it.. seriously.

I agree. That's one of the reasons I loved the powercore combiner dinobots. Lots of new dino shapes.

The art on this does look nice. Let's hope the toys look halfway decent.

I do believe you are right. I think kids are going to gobble these up, along with the collectors. My only concern is availability, I hope Hasbro cranks these out like lemmings falling over a cliff.

What? :shock:


There's no anger over this here?


YAY! :D

For once, we get news about Movie changes that doesn't immediately summon a storm of irateness! :DANCE:



Actually... I'm more than a little irritated that the Brontosaurus (Sludge) is lacking from the line-up but since 1) Very little makes me happy anyways, 2)Everyone knows by now that I'm not a fan of this new movie and 3) I know I have no support on this whatsoever, I'm going to let the streak stand as unbroken.

Now when a serious fan of this upcoming movie decides to voice their complaints and go all G1 butt-hurt on us, THEN you can consider the streak broken. :P

Sludge would certainly have been welcome. Especially after he was also left out of WFC. =\

I think it's a mistake, but then I'm not a Bayformer fan, so...
*shrug* I'll enjoy it as much as I can, for what it is.

FOC, but the comics gave him some time in the limelight. "Beast Hunters issue 2" was virtually "Spotlight: Sludge". ;)

I am really happy that my favourite dinosaur Spinosaurus will be appearing in this movie and I hope they release a great toy but I am displeased that Sludge or Snarl will not show up but I am not going to finalize it because there might be another product box of Decepticon as this product box shows Autobot with Snarl and Sludge and some more Dinobots. But I am really excited about this movie.

Do you think the President of USA will throw the Earth into a blackhole, killing every life in it in order to save the Martians from a crazy terrorist faction, who are revealed to be enslaving/harvesting Martians to save Earth? Because that's how ridiculous DOTM is and it's totally ridiculous to compare with real life military actions; the stakes are waaaay too different. Optimus killed both con leaders(with Megs offering a truce), he should at least offer the lesser cons a chance to surrender, especially when he considered freedom to be the right of all sentient beings.

Sideways, a con, running for his life, no weapons drawn, not even retaliating. Gets shot at and cut in half. RIP Sideways.

...I guess shouldn't have overanalyze the movie in the 1st place #-o :HEADHURTS: :michaelbay:

Most Autobots are like, cars and stuff. Windshield, hood, 4 wheels... Basically the same thing over and over again for... 30 years.

Many Autobots and Decepticons not only share the same basic body type, they actually share the exact same vehicle make and model, just in different colors. If we can tolerate that, I think we can tolerate three Dinobots that are all bipedal.

Who says that 'raptor' is a Velociraptor? It might be a Utahraptor, over 20' long and more than half a ton (polar bear sized).

People know their dinosaurs from Jurassic Park, that's why.

I will judge when I see the toys, so at this point I'm feeling open-minded about them being new dinosaurs and new characters/names, but I do have one question...Strafe? Why Strafe and not Swoop? Did they lose the name or something? I'm not angry, I honestly don't know if there is a reason or if they have said something about this.

That is an interesting question. I don't believe they have said anything about why.
