Wish List: Dinobots in ROTF!

The movie buffs at have posted a great editorial, where the author, Laremy Legel outlines all of his reasons why he thinks the DINOBOTS should be included in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen!  He breaks lose with the whole, "thanks for ruining my childhood" bit, but makes some excellent points nonetheless.  Weigh in with your comments below.

First comment,

It's not a race you know...

You can never have too much grimlock you know.

If you are going to have Devastator in this film, you got to have the Dinobots! They are the arch enemies of the Constructicons!

It's remarkable how many words he used to say,"I'm an old school fanboy. And I didn't like the first movie, because it was somewhat belivable."

He's right in as much as adding the Dinobots would make the movie silly and unrealistic. But, that's why I enjoy TFA. The movie opperates on a very different plane.

He does not make any points whatsoever.

Giant dinosaurs do not work from a "robots in DISGUISE" standpoint and in these movies, stealth is of the essence. Scorponok was deployed specifically to leave no eyewitnesses to Blackout's massacre.

All I think is the Dinobots COULD fit in it and COULD be made realistic, and be Dinosaurs. If not all of them at least Grimlock. If a giant Scorpion and huge Cybertronian alien jet could I think a t-rex could. Anyhow Grimlock would make the movie storyline feel closer to the TF spirit.

I agree with Tyscream. I mean just make em look like dinosaurs. sure it can be realistic. EVER HEAR OF JURASSIC PARK?! they will just be able to transform and fight robots. Which in fact would make the movie even better. GODZILLA WAS A HUGE SUCCESS! HE FOUGHT ROBOTS!

You guys forget that in both Jurassic Parkl and Godzilla the dinos/giant lizard in those films were ORGANIC. The Dinobots wouldn't go from fleshy beast modes to tech robot modes. If they did, then why didn't they do that for Scorponok in movie 1?

Besides, they've already got The Fallen for this film, putting the Dinobots in would be overdoing it even more than the first film overdid its final battle scene.

If the Dinobots are in any of the movie, they would obviously be the movie's main focus, and the focus of this film is Sam at college and The Fallen. We don't need anymore stuff crammed into this film. If you want the Dinobots in a film, then pray that they appear in TF3.

Yea I know. They could be mechanical. And just so you know putting Grimlock in ROTF wouldn't be overdoing it, if done right.

Hell i don't know why they don't put Omega Supreme in the TF2 film if they're going to have Devastator, the true arch nemesis to the constructicons...but I can't lie, the dinobots would be badass
Overhaul said,  - 2008-09-21 13:45:58
I'm inclined to agree with the thought that tossing the Dinobots into ROTF would be a little overkill, but I don't think it would be too much for TF3...
It just depends; is Bay going to try to make the who Transformer war on Earth a secret war? Despite that huge battle in the human city at the end of the first movie, Sams' parents seemed oblivious of the fact that there were giant robots waring on earth, except for rumor (but then, was that little interview clip meant as a joke?).
Personally, I don't like the idea of trying to keep Transformers a secret from the world at all, and thus I wouldn't mind Grimlock and co. showing up on earth.

Maybe they can be triple changers, like car to dinosaur to robot
