Of course Trypticon had to get his design somewhere. There needs to be some connection to earth though. Pretty unlikely that Trypticon randomly has a robot mode that coincidentally looks just like an earth dinosaur.

Well, I haven't finished Exiles yet, so I dunno how far Earth and Cybertron are apart. but given how this time period is set at a point that is loooong before they reach Earth, I say that such contacts with Earth may not be entirely likely.

Plus, Animated introduced the idea of Cybertron having dino-esque fauna of its own, with Animated Zaur resembling an Earth-style dinosaur, but being referred to as a "Brontobot". So, maybe the Aligned Continuity's Cybertron could have its own dino-like wildlife.

Three answers for this. For one, this is not G1.

Two, Trypticon was a dino in WFC, yet there's no issue about that.

Thirdly, Shockwave captured, experimented on, and reformatted the Lightning Strike Coalition into the Dinobots, according to Grimlock's two bios.



Yeah I know it's not G1, not worried about that, I like new continuities and back stories and such.

I was wondering about the Trypticon thing too when it came out but I didn't say anything then.

I never heard of the lightning strike coalition.

Actually, along that line of thinking. I've always seen some of the movie transformers as Cybertronian "Wildlife" like Devastator, Laserbeak, Ravage, the Micro-Cons/Reedman, Insecticon, The Driller/Rumble (not an official alternate name, I just like calling him Rumble), Hatchet, and Steeljaw. If there were other Beast Mode transformers in the movies I just forget them at the moment. Anyway, I've always figured them to be a form of Cybertronian wildlife, so for all we know the creatures that Laserbeak, Trypticon, AND Grimlock turn into are all just forms of Cybertronian wildlife! Makes the planet seem a bit more interesting to me.

It's a term from the War Within comics that was carried over into this series too. In both the War Within and here, the Lightning Strike Coalition was the name of the pre-Dinobot team on Cybertron before they got their dino altmodes (though, the War Within verison also included some non-Dinobot members).

yeah but who plays them !

:) :) :)

im liking the idea of grimlock and co being experimented on by shockwave.

had a similar idea myself for that a few years back when trying to do a fanfic on the dinos origin (though i had a created character do the deed as opposed to shockers)

now i think about it the dinosaurs kiced the bucket 65 million years ago so theres nothing to say some particularly powerful cybertronian space telescopes couldnt see them from orbit after it took the light that long to get to em (considering WFC is circa 4 million years ago that'd put earth 61 million light years away from it at the time)

a streatch i know, but something i could see shockwave doing in terms of research.

He's probably refering to G1. I know this doesn't follow up to G1, but Cliffjumper does have the same body as bumblebee like in G1

Cliff and Bee looking similar is an age old homage. Plus, the only thing the two had in common in G1 were their toys' transformation schemes. They were two similar, but very different, molds.
