You know, this is freakin' awesome. Hopefully it will happen.

And as much as I dislike some of the movie designs. I'm really intrigued by how the Dinobots and Constructicons would look if done up movie style.

I wouldn't midn the Constructicons in a sequel, but the Dinobots seem too clunky for the new movie continuity to me. I liked their recent reinvisionment as the Dynobots, though. Super advanced vehicles designed for warfare.

Awesome! We may get a combiner after all... and the Dinobots would look great done in the movie style.

they should went with Piranacon, he's way cooler :P

If his intent is to bring ALL the Constructicons into the sequel, then Bonecrusher's going to have to survive this movie; unless there's another 'con with the same name running around somewhere.

I'd love to see Grimlock and his crew join the cast, though not as the funny talking, low intelligent characters they were depicted in the series.

hmmm.....since the dinobots are good and contructicons are bad....with all the changes they made to this movie.....you think they'll have the dinobots be able to merge and form a bigger robot so they can fight devastator? i mean i could totally see an executive suggest that..lol

Hmm, Dinobots and Constructicons....

Yeah, I think we all were thinking this already.

TF 1: introduce the main characters
TF 2: bring in sub-groups (dinos and greens)
TF 3: planet eater anyone?

ye i can see that happening. hopefully they do put the dinos and constructs. and for sure, the last movie would be where earth gets eaten at the end.

I have a couple of questionz


1. Isn't Bonecrusher 1 of the Constucticons?

2. Will they be able to form Devastator?

3. How many Dynobots or Dinobots are they considering?

4. What other TF are the they considering? I hope Tracks is in the movie and Sideswipe!

Even though the looks of 11 more giant freakin' robots are gonna look like crap, this is still good. As long as we get the final result of all the Constructicons, I'm good. Just keep Grimlock dumb & ruthless. As long as the Dinobot alt. modes remain the same, I'm good w/that. Same goes for the Constructicon. But what will they call Bonecrusher? More importantly, if Bonecrusher survives this movie, he'll need a new alt. mode to really be a Constructicon.

What is his alt mode in this movie? I'm pretty sure that Bonechrusher lives after this!

That thought crossed my mind as well. There's always seemed like a demand for a Dinobot gestalt, so this would be cool. I hope they get these two groups into the next movie some how. :PRAY:

It could work maybe.

If the transformers all have to unite over 1 great foe why not have a movie design for the quintessons. Maybe the quintessons could try to get revenge against the transformers for liberating themselves. They could come into the story with a giant anti-transformer transformer (Unicron).

Any theories on how to bring in the dinobots?

My guess is the dinobots will be made from animatronic dinosaurs.....either that or they will turn into Cybertronian beasts. I could see Grimlock being a pompus arse that thinks hiding is for weaklings.

Personally, it sounds awesome. Realistically, though, I remember all of Bay's comments about reality and such. What possible real life, believable use could giant robots be that turn into robotic dinosaurs? If robots with humanoid faces were too unrealistic for Bay, what would he think of dinosaurs? =]

I for one LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this idea!!!! I was actually thinking to myself a few weeks ago it would be cool if they could incorporate Dinobots and perhaps Devastator into the sequel. If this is something that will happen, I hope they pull it off well!!!!

Hey, if you have Devastator, you gotta have the Dinobots!! THEY ARE RIVALS!!!

hmm, incorporating the dinobots into real life logic as the movie supposedly is..
interesting to see how that will all play out.
alien machine robots, that transform into an extinct inferior species from another planet, that lack intelligence of the other alien mechanized race.
honestly, i'm pondering it and it won't stop

Constructicons yes, Dinobots no, unless Grimlock is some sort of tank (like WWH)

My version for the dinobots' arrival: Their protoform comet-like bodies explodes near a museum, with mechanical dinosaur-statues in it, and they take their bodies as basic for alt. modes.

Posted by Ninjatron on June 6th, 2007 @ 4:46pm CDT
Here's a dinobot theory.

Maybe some protoforms are sent on a earth mission. Maybe a search of some kind and they land in the desert wheres theres very little life and no machinery. They'd need alt modes that are suitable for the terrain so they might scan the fossils of dinosaurs.

Just an idea...

Megatron is frozen for ages and then gets thawed out. What if something similar happened to the dinobots? If they were sent here millions of years ago for some reason, and say something cataclysmic happened to make them go into stasis?

No Unicron, no Dinobots, and maybe the Constructicons if they can handle it correctly without getting stupid...

Ugh.

I'm so sick of Unicron that I could puke coat hangers. I want this to be as realistic as possible.

Hell, F4 is doing the planet eater thing and it looks like it's going to be STUPID. STOOOOOPID.

Mr. Bay, Mr. Spielberg, anyone else in charge, if you're reading this...PLEASE NO UNICRON! AHHHH!!!

I don't generally like the movie style, but it could work for the Dinobots - brutal, savage, lethal, etc. Hell, Grimlock didn't have a human face, so, no complaint there...

Oh God...

Looks like it's time to get a head start on the fanboy complaining for two years, heh. Just kidding folks. Devastator would be a great villain for the sequel, I guess we have to see how the movie ends, to see how they'll get to that point, hmm? Dinobots would be pretty cool, but I bet they'll cut the team to just the original three. I bet one will be a Velociraptor, due to it's popularity. Buuuut Polymorphic brings up a great point. With the attitude of keeping the TFs "realistic", The Dinobots wouldn't make much sense, unless they sit in a museum...oh god I hope I didn't speak that into existence... Although I wouldn't be too opposed to Grimlock being a tank, like The War Within...
