Then don't play it. Enough said. "Nobody controls Grimlock" he says. Awesome.

Looks amazing. The spacebridge effects are most impressive. I really like this origin story for the Dinobots. It's clever, believable and makes sure the transformers stay off Earth until the proper time.

Did anyone else notice Perceptor in the background of the interview?

Space Bridge looks better than ever. I just can't tell you how excited I am about this.

Grimlock and the Dinobots look amazing. Almost as amazing as their backstories!

Looks kill, stoked. Like that kickback is in the background concept art.
In regards to what Griftimus said, Ya it isn't the best idea, but its far from the worst. I'd say the idea that Grimlock and his crew had to follow Shockwave to Earth and fight him there, like in Shockwave spotlight, is more.. spot on... #-o

I took a screenshot of Perceptor a while ago, but it was never news'd. I guess it was old news?

It never made the news rounds, but it's a well known image. They've used that same background for several interviews.

This is everything you need to know about the Aligned Dinobots at the time of the video games and novels in a nutshell. 8)

I swear you never have anything positive to say about anything. Must be pretty sad way to live.

On topic I think the back story isn't bad. I mean there isn't really to many ideas for autobots that change into preistoric dinosaurs on a distant planet that isn't going to sound some what far fetched. For what they had to work with i think they did well.

I love that they feel the need to explain the Dinobots being dinosaurs, whilst completely ignoring that the final boss of the last game was one as well.

Trypticon barely looks like a dinosaur. Just looks like some giant reptile. As its been explained, chances are cold-blooded life forms had been discovered for Trypticon to be based off. The dinobots on the other hand are very clearly "Dinosaurs".

Mother of god. I thought I was excited before but.........

....Okay. Just one. Got it out of my system. But seriously, I am in LOVE with High Moon Studios. The reason I hated the movies was because it was obvious that they weren't Transformers movies. They were movies with Transformers in them, but the lack of passion for the franchise was almost painfully obvious in their neglect of any sort of characterization. From these interviews-- from what we've already seen-- it cannot be more obvious that they guys at High Moon are just as stoked about Transformers as we are. They care. They're fans who love the Dinobots and know that we all love the Dinobots, so they boldly marched up to Hasbro and pushed the idea because it was important to them. There's an understanding and humility that has definitely contributed to War for Cybertron's success in that they're passionate about making a great game and making a great Transformers game. Take note Hasbro. These are the types of people that should be put in charge of Transformers media. Aka: people who care as much about Transformers as the people they're selling to.

I like how the space bridge works exactly like it did in DOTM.

bah! I didn't need any explanation. It's like asking why the Autobots and some Decepticons transform into vehicles with human-sized cockpits, even though humans were still nothing but a gleam in some apes' eyes at the time. I tend to just go with it.

Regardless of the redundancy of the origin story, it does sound like we might get some cool Shockwave Vs Dinobot smackdown action, so I'm all for that.

I really like how the Dinobots speak. Sure, their cavemen-like speech was classic, but this... this was awesome. :APPLAUSE:
