"The Ark may be grounded, but there's a new challenge before the Heroic Decepticons. The exiled mad genius known as Wheeljack has finally perfected a means of duplicating Grimlock's Artificial Intelligence matrix and he's built a horde of Dinobots to unleash against Autobot and Decepticon alike! When the toothed terrors go rogue both sides scramble to recover them. Two teams; Cliffjumper and Sideswipe on one and Rodimus and Blurr on the other, find mystery, adventure and peril in the depths of the Shattered Cybertron during their pursuit of the wayward Grimlock. But what awaits them in the labyrinth is far more dangerous than any Dinobot... and it does not wish to be found."

Odds are he looks like Energon Downshift in Diaclone Wheeljack colors. Or Energon Downshift in Marlboor colors.

Also, Shattered Glass Bludgeon appears, and he seems to be the RiD Bludgeon toy.

Shattered Glass Huffer seems to be the movie Armorhide toy.

Shattereed Glass Side Burn seems to be based on the Universe toy colors.
For those who want to know the story, but can't read the official one, here is my quickie synopsis.
The heroic Decepticons are defending a fuel depot from Autobot attack (they want the fuel to power the Ark so they can invade Earth). Lots of backwards mayhem ensues, and Cliffjumper and the Mayhem Suppression Squad kick Autobot tailpipe. Suddenly exhiled mad scientist Wheeljack arrives with a ton of makeshift drone Dinobots he built by copying Grimlock's design, but they go all bonkers and attack everyone and each other. The two sides both retreat and decide that they can get an advantage if they can capture some Dinobots, fix them and program them to be on the Autobot or Decepticon sides. Various captures take place (Decepticons capture Slugfest and some Dinoforce members, Autobots capture Swoop, others are taken off camera).
Sideswipe and Cliffjumper (Decepticons) and Rodimus and Blurr (Autobots) both head after Grimlock to capture him, and he leades them into a wasteland maze/dungeon thingie, where they meet the evil counterpart of Vector Sigma, called the Omega Terminus. It grants Grimlock an ember (spark) and he learns to Transform and becomes intelligent. Fighting with zombies occures (including an undead evil purple Cliffjumper!), and the use of mirror-universe scraplets (which only feed on dead metal) saves the day.
Grimlock rejoins the Autobots as intelligent/evil Grimlock, the Decepticons get a new squad of Dinocons.

I think you missed him. Go to page 4 and look at the top left. His mold is Energon Downshift as everybody suspects with Slicer's colours.

Possibly, but I think it was Sludge. Weird not seing Slag as a Triceratops but cool to see Slugfest was a simple repaint. I am having trouble locating the mold used for Ratchet though.
