Still holding out for the Chocobot hour. Come on Cartoon Network, make me have seizures already, you know you want to.

The first game was actually surprisingly enjoyable, especially given the ability to play the entire thing co-op online with a friend. Pretty interesting take on the story as well, though nothing super amazing. Worth a play-through if you're into Transformers and/or third-person shooters at all. Definitely looking forward to the new one.

And by the time Michael Bay is done with them they will no longer be Dinobots. They will be furry little Mammalbots who ate the eggs of the dinobots and are designed to look like the latest pigfat car to come out of Detroit.

Could anyone do anything nowadays with the dinobots without getting criticized for making fun of the mentally challenged?

I mean between Jazz in the first movie and the twins in the second there was enough somewhat founded "omg racism", do they really want "omg making fun of tards now too"?

Do any of you actually ever say "I'm not a kid anymore?" and just kind of shrug this off in indifference. Yeah, I thought they were cool when I was 8. I hope kids find them cool now, but aside from that...meh?

Almost done with season 2 myself. People who say it didn't age well didn't have enough love for it in the first place.

The first season was a little rough, but by the end of that first season they had hit their groove, and things really started settling into place after that.

I used to get up extra early on Saturday mornings to watch the unedited 40 minute long episodes. It was awesome.

That's about 95% of everything I had as a kid. A guy my age still completely marks out over GI Joes, of all things.

No, because I didn't throw away my ability to enjoy the things I enjoyed as a kid when I reached adulthood out of fear of not being seen as "mature".

Bah. Looking more forward to Metroplex than Grimlock.

I can't wait to see Metroplex and play as Bruticus. My only complaint is that one of my favorite Transformers has never been playable in any game.

They admit that there will be changes. In other words be prepared for a shiatstorm of nerd rage after they screw it up.

I'd be more interested in a return of Dinoriders in videogame form.

Wonder if it'll be pre or post movie Grimlock. Pre-movie Grimlock had the intellectual capacity combined with the brute power of your average 6'6" redneck. Post movie grimlock was everyone's favorite lovable retard that could smash things really good. I hope it's the later.

/"Grimlock's New Brain" was one of my favourite episodes.

More along the lines of the Dreamwave and Marvel Grimlock/Dinobots, who were far smarter than the cartoon Dinobots. They also have the power of the cartoon Dinobots.

Grimlock doesn't have any projectile weapons in robot mode, but he can grab and throw enemies as a standard move, plus he has his enormous sword. As he fights he builds a rage meter that lets him transform to beast mode when it's full, which lets him stomp, bite, tail-whip, and use his fire breath. Grimlock is the second-largest playable character, Bruticus being the largest.

/"Call of the Primitives" is my favorite 3rd season episode, "War of the Dinobots" my favorite Dinobot episode
