gameinformer has published their latest exclusive Transformers: Fall of Cybertron article, "Transformers: Resurrecting The Dinobots". In addition to awesome art and screenshots mirrored below, the article also contains two videos, "The Story Behind the Dinobots" and "Designing the Dinobots", which can be viewed by clicking here.

Two things unite every sane person in the world: pumpkin pie and the unrivaled awesomeness of dinosaurs. In the '80s, Hasbro capitalized on the popularity of these beasts by creating the memorable team of elite Transformers called the Dinobots. Once a pillar of Transformers fiction, the proud Dinobots went the way of the dodo as the series chose to emphasize other characters. Thankfully, High Moon Studios couldn't let them go, as the Dinobots return to the fight in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Led by the robotic Tyrannosaurus Rex named Grimlock, these five transforming robots will be an intricate part of the story. Check out the first video below to learn how High Moon Studios built a new origin story that logically allowed for robotic dinosaurs on the alien planet of Cybertron.

I want to play with Grimlock already and smash some Decepticreeps with that huge sword! :D

btw, any idea if Grimlock (or any other Dinobot) has a gun as a weapon? In those videos where they showed character modeling and their transformation, it was said that they try to make the gun-arm point forward so you can start shooting immediately, which was the case with Optimus and Jazz. However, Grimlock didn't have his arm pointed forward, so does that mean that he only has a melee weapon?

The latest video confirmed htat Grimlock only has a sword and shield. no gun. His only ranged weapon comes in the form of throwing his enemies at each other.

Slag is very cool looking. I, too, hope they don't screw with his name.

"Slag" is a swear word in Britain. So, there's not a certainty that they can use that name.

Swoop could use a little blue on him. Otherwise, I was surprised to see that all the designs are remarkably similar to their original counterparts. Really psyched for this game! :grin: =P~

Quite aware of that. Calling him "Snarl" to me doesn't work. He was the only Dinobot toy I had as a kid. Calling him "Slag" is only right, IMO.

I'm not saying they should call him Snarl (If they did, what would they call the Stegosaurus?). I'm just saying that there's a possibility they can't call him Slag.

It's also a swear word on Cybertron, which is why I thought that changed it. It didn't make a whole lot of sense to have a character named after your in-universe swear.

Slug has a name that does not remind one of English whores.


Can't fault TFwiki for not being honest.

Slug isn't bad but WHY? The name changing nonsense with Slag is silly and annoying. Especially when they called him Snarl, whom of which is my favourite Dinobot. I thought that was ridiculous. At least "Slug" is independent of any other TF name which, begrudgingly, is acceptable in my books.

Speaking of........I also noticed that Snarl isn't present. I really want to play as Snarl in this game.
