First Look at the Dinobots in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Your favorite dino robots in all their glory. Michael Bay, take notes.

I've been a fan of the Transformers since I first laid eyes on them. And it wasn't long after that that I fell in love with the Dinobots, too. I vividly remember the episode of the old 1980s cartoon series that debuted everybody's favorite rag-tag team of dinosaur-themed robots. It was like an after school special with the Transformers being dragging to the local museum by their human companions to be educated on dinosaurs. It was adorable, and will forever be a memory engrained in my brain.

So to see the Dinobots in their full glory in an upcoming video game is beyond exciting for me. We've seen Grimlock in action already in Fall for Cyberton, but what about the rest of the gang? Today, Activision and High Moon Studios released a packet of screenshots putting on display the full Dinobot cast, including Slag (the triceratops), Snarl (the stegosaurus) and Swoop (the pterodactyl). Try to hold back your nerd boners, folks. But if you can't, it's fine, we've been hiding ours secretly for a while now…
