"If you look at the Hasbro library of characters, there are some that are incredibly beloved and these are examples of that," Wahlberg offered. "They're natural candidates to bring into our new-look version of the franchise. They fans are crazy for these guys. They've had a lot of attention historically so we knew that whenever we brought them in it would be met with a huge reaction. The way the Dinobots come to life is spectacular. They're not the easiest bunch to control, either. It's pretty awesome how they evolved, how they took the form of those dinosaurs. Then to see what Optimus has to do to get them to comply and save humanity, it's pretty incredible. They have everything (when asked if they have weapons from the cartoons and comics). Everything you can imagine. They're giant dinosaurs that are also robots... What's not to love about that?"
Reynor added, "And they run around blowing shit up, just generally being crazy. I think if there's anybody in the world who can bring robot dinosaurs to life and can make them incredibly cool, it's Michael Bay. I think [audiences'] minds are going to be blown when they see them on the screen."
