Episode Summary

War of the Dinobots
Certainly, the Dinobots give the Autobots something of an advantage over the Decepticons in battle. Naturally, Megatron wants that advantage to be his instead. Unfortunately, that doesn't prove very difficult to do, so the Autobots are soon facing the battle fury of Grimlock, Slag and Sludge. The only chance of setting things right lies with the construction and success of the newest set of Dinobots, Snarl and Swoop.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Goof: All the Dinobots were in dino mode before the meteorite exploded. After the explosion, Grimlock transforms to robot mode, but Slag and Sludge transform from robot to dino mode.

    • Goof: Just before the Dinobots blast Optimus Prime into the pit, Grimlock's yellow chestpiece is colored silver.

    • Goof: When Starscream tells Megatron Grimlock won't willingly destroy Optimus Prime, he's briefly colored blue like Thundercracker.

    • Goof: In the scene Megatron begins to convince the Dinobots to turn against the Autobots, one part shows Sludge speaking with Slag's voice and then his own.

    • Note that all of the Dinobots are based on Dinosaurs discovered in the North American region, which would fit in with how Wheeljack found them in the rockface at Autobot Headquarters. However, the T-Rex, Triceratops and Pteranodon all belong to the Cretaceous Period and would have been buried separately from the Brontosaurus and Stegosaurus who lived during the Jurassic period. Furthermore, Brontosaurus is not even a Dinosaur, it was renamed Apatosaurus after somebody found out that it had already been discovered.

    • During the scene were Megatron and Starscream are fleeing when the meteorite explodes Starscream who is then knocked out of the sky with Megatron is Thundercracker. But once they hit the ground he's Starscream again.

    • If the Autobots do not know what kind of energies the meteorite contains then why does Optimus Prime shoot off a piece? A directed energy beam would have caused it to explode. Optimus should have known better. Seeing how the meteorite proved unstable and finally exploded it should have when it was hit by the energy blast.
