Episode Summary

EDIT
A little extra muscle in the Autobot ranks would certainly be welcome. Coincidentally, nearby dinosaur fossils provide the necessary means. Soon enough, Wheeljack unveils Grimlock, Slag and Sludge. Unfortunately, their poor intelligence and great strength make for an uncomfortable combination. Optimus sees all of this as a mistake, shutting down the Dinobots before they can harm themselves or anyone else. However, a sudden and devastating Decepticon attack prompts reconsidering this policy.moreless

  • Yes it is an excuse to sell more toys but the Dinobots are great characters and funny as well.

    7.5
    The Autobots discover fossilized Dinosaurs in the volcano surrounding Autobot Headquarters and Wheeljack decides to make some Autobot versions of them. I liked the fact that the Dinobots were extremely powerful but also extremely stupid. If they were intelligent, they would be unstoppable so that balance is necessary. I would have rated this episode higher except for two issues. First of all, the animation mistakes in this episode are many. It seems like things got progressively worse since the pilot trilogy. Secondly, here’s another episode where Megatron is trying to plunder energy when we could be seeing more interesting plots develop at this stage in the series. My second point is nitpicking a bit, but my first is undisputable. Once again, still an entertaining episode.moreless
  • Dinosaurs + Autobots = Dinobots

    9.3
    A good episode that shows the intelligence of Wheeljack, who builds the Dinobots and fix their problem up to save his partner (with a bit of help from Ratchet). It´s funny when the Decepticons try to stop these monster but they have to retreat, because they are too strong. Megatron shows an enhancement of his arm cannon when he connects the cannon to the hidroelectric central and blows a mountai with only one shot. Prime give permission to the Dinobots to stay among them, because the Dinobots saves the Autobots in a one critic moment when the Autobots were about to br destroyed by the Decepticons.moreless
