Thanks to weibo user HarryHuo we have some Transformers: Age of Extinction product packaging mock-ups! The box inlay image reveals lots of Dinobots in their dinosaur modes: Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Pterodactyl, and Spinosaurus (you'll have to forgive us if those names aren't 100% species accurate, there are a lot of various dino subspecies!) As you can see this isn't the traditional Dinobot team. The outer box offers yet another look at Optimus Prime in his new body.

Check em out below:

Interesting, I wonder what the final number of dinobots will be.

The box inlay reminds me a bit of the Jurassic Park 2 packaging, that also had loads of dino pics that highlighted body parts in a similar style.

I bet that was deliberate, even - only so many dino-movie comps out there to take your marketing cues from.

i really like the design for the new dinobots. usually i would be kind of annoyed by a triceratops having stegosaurus spikes on his tail but really it makes him even more awesome

So from what we see here, I think we can finally tell who and what are the Movieverse Dinobots:

Grimlock- Tyrannosaurus

Slug- Triceratops

Strafe- Pterosaurs

Slash- Raptor

Scorn- Spinosaurus

No Stegosaur or Saurapod sadly, but whatever. Kids love vicious deadly carnivores better anyways!

Are the Dinobots all confirmed to be Autobots?

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?

YAY! :D

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

In a way, he kinda already did, as the name "Ultra Magnus" was a pre-production name for DOTM Sentinel Prime.

Despite what the writers of Jurassic Park would have you believe, Velociraptors were small dinosaurs, about the size of a chicken or a dog. That wouldn't make for a very imposing alt mode.

I'm ok with the look. No doubt the changes made make for better action and screen presence.

they're all spiky dinosaurs what else would you expect from bay, next question is are the names correct or is the raptor sludge & the spino snarl instead of dinobot & a new character?

I'm rather disappointed by the dinosaur choices. T-rex, raptor, AND spinosaurus? That's too many with the same basic body shape.

Man, that dinosaur packaging is awesome, makes me nostalgic for the old Jurassic Park stuff. Hope they make a poster or something of just that.

The rest of it is pretty damn boring, and I'm not really crazy about how much it seems it'll hide the actual toy.

Hadn't thought about it myself, but considering how often Slag's been called Snarl over the past decade or so, I wonder if that's an intentional in-joke.

Hey, you know what! You're right! Good thing I was just referring to the Snarl and Sludge alt modes we are not getting and not the five were are getting! that would have been embarrassing! :grin: :P

I personally would have appreciated some visual confirmation of a proper Stegosaurus so at least i could name it Snarl in my own wee mind.
I have a feeling these Dinos will neither be Autobot nor Decepticon. I speculate and assume of course.

Hell they could even end up being the bad guys of the movie.

sad there no sludge or snarl but i suppose if you think about it sludge would be ridiculously large and take away from grimlock - who's clearly meant to be the WOW character of the line.

and with snarl if he's the spinosaurus he's fuking ugly , which'd tie in to his G1 opinion of his alt mode.

i still expect bay to fuk this up as ive no faith in him doing a good job on this franchise but at least it looks like im getting a half decent grimlock toy.

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.

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.

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.
