  4. I loved the first game as well, by far the best Transformers game out there. I am curious though as to how they will explain robot dinosaurs on Cybertron. Would seem more rational that after the Ark arrives to earth in the 3rd game that they find an older Autobot ship/base with the Dinobots inside. Guess we'll wait and see.

  5. Or maybe Wheeljack just builds them with simple brains like he did in 1984. If you watch the High Moon Studios tour you will see the concept art for Wheeljack on the wall.
