I'm still not understanding how Grimlock can be a dinosaur when he hasn't been to Earth, or maybe he has I dunno, this WAS millions of years ago so he might have I suppose. Either way, I hope they explain it, even if they don't though, YEEAAAHHH GRIMLOCK!!! :KREMZEEK:

I second this. In the Gameinformer it says him transforming into the trex is a result of shockwave experimenting on him, but I don't know how shockwave got the idea.

Actually, that's not as far fetched as it may first appear. This would also help explain Laserbeak's appearance as a bird. If Soundwave has been collecting info. from prehistoric Earth then this is entirely possible. I can't wait to see how they work this in!

Three answers for this. For one, this is not G1.

Two, Trypticon was a dino in WFC, yet there's no issue about that.

Thirdly, Shockwave captured, experimented on, and reformatted the Lightning Strike Coalition into the Dinobots, according to Grimlock's two bios.

Holy crap! I hope Grimlock isn't the only Dinobot, but even if he is, very, very cool.

Shouldn't be hard to explain. Maybe Shockwave sent probes out into space to scan species from different planets.

Different continuities.

Or he used Trypticon's design for inspiration. ;)

Of course Trypticon had to get his design somewhere. There needs to be some connection to earth though. Pretty unlikely that Trypticon randomly has a robot mode that coincidentally looks just like an earth dinosaur.

Well, I haven't finished Exiles yet, so I dunno how far Earth and Cybertron are apart. but given how this time period is set at a point that is loooong before they reach Earth, I say that such contacts with Earth may not be entirely likely.

Plus, Animated introduced the idea of Cybertron having dino-esque fauna of its own, with Animated Zaur resembling an Earth-style dinosaur, but being referred to as a "Brontobot". So, maybe the Aligned Continuity's Cybertron could have its own dino-like wildlife.

Yeah I know it's not G1, not worried about that, I like new continuities and back stories and such.

I was wondering about the Trypticon thing too when it came out but I didn't say anything then.

I never heard of the lightning strike coalition.

Actually, along that line of thinking. I've always seen some of the movie transformers as Cybertronian "Wildlife" like Devastator, Laserbeak, Ravage, the Micro-Cons/Reedman, Insecticon, The Driller/Rumble (not an official alternate name, I just like calling him Rumble), Hatchet, and Steeljaw. If there were other Beast Mode transformers in the movies I just forget them at the moment. Anyway, I've always figured them to be a form of Cybertronian wildlife, so for all we know the creatures that Laserbeak, Trypticon, AND Grimlock turn into are all just forms of Cybertronian wildlife! Makes the planet seem a bit more interesting to me.

It's a term from the War Within comics that was carried over into this series too. In both the War Within and here, the Lightning Strike Coalition was the name of the pre-Dinobot team on Cybertron before they got their dino altmodes (though, the War Within verison also included some non-Dinobot members).
