Sounds cool. I'll be looking forward to it. You may have your work cut out for you though, cause I'm thinking there's a lot more dinoformers than sharkformers.

"What species is this?"
"Grimlock."
"...you bred Grimlocks?!"

Excellent! My first curiosity is the set featured in the teaser pic.

If its going to (hopefully!) included all the Beastwars/II/Neo with dinoforms, WST, the 'Dinobots' and other dinoforms from BMachines, and so on; then yeah, he's got his work cut out. Surely knowing we'll love every minute of it is enough encouragement though, right? Right? XD

As much as I'd love to have all of the Dinosaur Transformers completed for this, I am not planning on completing the Beast Wars Neo or Beast Machines Transformers for this set. I'm just planning on launching the Dinobot galleries.

"Don't Move! He can't see you if you don't move!"

Grimlock: *reaches into pocket, and removes a set of glasses, setting them on his snout*

:D

Sounds AWESOME! And I second the T-Shirt idea...though I imagine you'd have to go with 'Dino-Bot' or Dynabot to bypass copywrite issues...

Awesome! Bring on the dinos! I love the shirt as well, btw. Some needs to get Hasbro's permission to make shirts for Bot-Con or something....

Always glad to see more galleries. I think you already have a lot of the Dinoformers galleries done, but I'd love to see included in the list of one for Dinoweek.

Just off the top of my head, Dinoformers could include various cassettes, Snapdragon, Dinoforce, the "Transformers: Dinobots" line, the Classic Dinobot Mini-Cons and their redecos (like Gnashteeth), Brimstone and Deluxe Jungle Megatron from Cybertron.

I'd like to see a BW Megatron vs BM T-Wrecks gallery, even though it won't happen

Does Sky lynx's "Dino-Bird" mode count as a Dinosaur?

http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... -lynx/835/

Do Action Master Snarl and Grimlock count, since they lack their Dino modes? How about Titanium Grimlocks?

Let's see already done from G1 are:

Overkill: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... kill/1512/

Slugfest: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... fest/1511/

Snapdragon: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... ragon/438/

Loved the Dinoforce pics:

"We have a Grimlock"

"We have a Grimlock"
"Say it again"
"Ha. We have a Grimlock."

I wanna see Pretender Grimlock. In the European catalogue, his shell's face reminded me of Bill Pertwee (the ARP Warden from Dad's Army). Sadly the actual toy didn't.

"They show extraordinary intelligence, even problem-solving. Especially the big one. We bred eight originally, but when he came in he took over the pride and killed all but four of the others. That one... when he looks at you, you can tell he's working things out. "

Primus creates Dynobots. Primus destroys Dynobots. Primus creates Transformers. Transformers destroys Primus. Autobot creates Dinobots...

Dynobots eat Autobots. Fembots inherits the earth...

Try to imagine yourself on Cybertron. You get your first look at this "six-foot turkey" as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his optical sensors are based on movement like Grimlock - he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Dinobot. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side, from the other Predacons you didn't even know were there. Because Dinobot's a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this... a six-inch Transmetal claw, like a razor, on the the middle toe. He doesn't bother to bite your servos like a Sharkticon, say... no no. He slashes at you here... or here... or maybe across the central core, spilling your hydraulics. The point is... you are online when they start to dismantle you. So you know... try to show a little respect.

I checked out the link to the old "Shark Week" Spotlight. Some of those were put up on Dec. 31, 1970! How'd you manage that? 8-}
