Michael Bay on the Dinobots for "Transformers 3"

Bay says "I hate them".

By Matthew "Ozymandias" Wallace - 8/18/2009
The dinobots have never been in a Transformers movie but is it possible they could be in the third movie?

Here's the info:

Empire Magazine will be featuring a piece on Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Director Michael Bay in its September 2009 issue.

Michael Bay was quoted in the post as saying this about the possible introduction of the Dinobots for Transformers 3:

"They've never been discussed [for inclusion]" stated Bay. "I don't like them. Actually, I hate them."

Could the director of the 10th most domestically grossing film in movie history be throwing us an early "misinformation" loop well before production of the third film begins?

So if this is true we most likely wont be seeing the dinobots in the 3rd movie.

Ozy out.

Bay blows. first!!!!
EvilEd2000 - 8/18/2009, 3:37 PM
I dont see why he wouldn't include them, they'd be great comic relief. People say their dinosaur modes make no sense but no one complained about ravage. Unless he's worried people will think he's taking the piss out of the mentally handicapped.

i hate u 2 bay jk na but he should introduce them they will make a great story and a great fight

dinobots suck, go bay!
Wadey09 - 8/18/2009, 5:13 PM
what many people including bay and many fans dont realize is that in the comics, the dinobots are a force to be reckoned with.
grimlock wasnt the comic relief, he was an awesome battle hardened commander.
he was not only powerful, he was arrogant and he could back it up. even megatron had immense difficulty in taking him down.
if bay did go for dinobots (cross your fingers!) i would hope that he used this incarnation.
and yes, in the comics, he had that speech impediment.
i wouldn't blame bay if he chose to nix that. hopefully he learned his mistakes from mudflap and skids.

why Bay?, I love dinobots...
Phinehas - 8/18/2009, 8:12 PM
Wadey09 is completely spot on. Their persona in the animated series was only accurate in the sense that they were not user friendly and not easily controlled. If they adjust the origins in the third installment for Unicron and Primus, the dinobots will have to be introduced in battle against Unicron. Then again, Bay does what wants with no regard to script, plot, or canon.

Beast Wars was the shit! That show was awesome!

Who wants DINOBOTS anyway??? ; D
CorndogBurglar - 8/19/2009, 8:46 AM
in the old cartoon, the dinobots weren't found under a mountain, the transformers MADE them from scratch.
CorndogBurglar - 8/19/2009, 8:48 AM
@ LEEE exactly, i agree with bay on this one, they suck dinoballs!!! which would be pretty big i would have to imagine!
RorMachine - 8/19/2009, 9:02 AM
How can Bay include the Dinobots in fairness? It would take screen time away from the humping dogs and retarded hash brownie eating mother!
superdog - 8/19/2009, 9:04 AM
they were in the animate movie so they HAVE been in a transformers movie.

i think they could be cool if done right. but sinces its bay they wont be. they will appear, call people pussy, fart, and probably get there ass kicked in a fight and have a crush on megan fox.

Don't be hard-ons. You don't need all of the Dinobots for this movie. Just a solo gig will do. Grimlock or 'Dinobot' from Beastwars would seem suitable. Drop the goofy caveman speak, add an updated body (Jurassic Park style T-Rex) and put him in one scene like they did for Devastator. That is the makings of a good battle. Hell, even bring Devastator back and have a huge Grimlock fight him. Have them both put out of commission from the fight. It would be pretty easy to include that in the movie. And it would take like two lines of dialouge to explain it.

"OMG! We need to make something to fight Devastator! But all we have is this junkyard and some left over cube!" - Optimus

"Shoooot, Son. Lemme just whip something up and catch a glimpse of a T-Rex from some museum poster or toy store to "spark an idea!" - Ratchet

@ Rorschach01,

My thoughts exactly.
AvengingAngel1022 - 8/19/2009, 9:57 AM
whatever
GUNSMITH - 8/19/2009, 10:20 AM
DINOBOTS WOULD BE AWSOME TO SEE, HE SAYS HE DOESNT LIKE THEM BECAUSE I THINK HIS BRED AND BUTTER IS CAR CHASES AND REAL WORLD VEHICLES THAT HE CANN BLOW UP, NOW IN THE FIRST THEIR WAS SCORPINOCK THE SECOND THERE WAS RAVAGE, ANIMAL ROBOTS, THEY ALWAYS PLAYED A SEMI SMALL PART IN THE MOVIE OR AT LEAST LESSER ROBOT TO ROBOT BATTLES.SCORPINOCK WAS DOING ALL THE SHOOTING IN THE FIRST ONE AND RAVAGE WAS DOING SPYCRAP AND THROWING UP BB'S THAT TURNED INTO A BUGBOT IN THE SECOND ONE(HE GOT HIS SPINE RIPPED OUT)..ALL IN ALL...BAY HATES REVOLVING AROUND ANIMALS FOR TOO LONG.
shadowboxer - 8/19/2009, 10:23 AM
oh darn, sorry grimlock
breakUbatman - 8/19/2009, 10:50 AM
Bay wasted the perfect opportunity for dinobots with the primes, I hated that toycar thing, the twins and jetfire ( why did he look older than the Fallen?) Why couldnt he just give us a proper soundwave ..."Eject, Eject, EJEEEEEECT!" What a swine
GUNSMITH - 8/19/2009, 11:03 AM
SOUNDWAVE WAS A WASTE-HE DIDNT EVEN TRANSFORM,PRIMES WERE STUPID-WHAT DROVE HIM TO MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE BIONICLE-NAMELESS DECEPTICONS WERE STUPID-WHY JUST THROW IN ROBOTS WE DONT EVEN KNOW...SOUNDWAVE COULD HAVE BEEN A DJ SET UP OR A HUGE TRUCK PIMPED OUT WITH A MASSIVE SOUNDSYSTEM

Hey guys!!!! Check out my CBM users cast in DC movies in FAn Fic!!!!
JeremyBentham - 8/19/2009, 3:16 PM
i think it would be dumb to have them in there.

plus, he killed arcee off in like the first 2 minutes of rotf, and he hated her too. so even if he did put them in, there would be no justice done to them.
Instantclassic - 8/19/2009, 4:34 PM
I really do hope Michael Bay puts the Dinobots in the 3rd movie, we haven't seen the Dinobots in the animated nor the 2 live action, I havent read up on the Dino bots in a while but would be surprised if Michael Bay changes his mind.
Phinehas - 8/19/2009, 5:04 PM
Uh oh...seems like the making of a new poll is coming from JMan.

Do you think the next Transformers shouls have Dinobots?

Yes

No
dancingmonkey08 - 8/19/2009, 5:21 PM
Put the [frick]ing Dinobots in TF3. And Unicron! Nobody cares what you think Bay! Listen to the fans for once!
Deadpool813 - 8/19/2009, 7:51 PM
A few weeks ago I was talking to a friend about how cool it would be if Dinobots were in Transformers 3!

BTW: Bay Blows!
SoulAlone - 8/20/2009, 2:57 AM
They wouldn't have to put all the Dinobots in the movie if they didn't want to. But having the Autobots trump card by the end of the movie be Grimlock would be fanboy-riffic. Of course, Bay's version of Grimlock would probably be the result of an Autobot scanning fossils, therefore he would transform into a skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus...with spikes jutting out of his spine...and rocket launchers attached to each tip...Sigh.
breakUbatman - 8/20/2009, 4:20 AM
The Twins are officially the Batnipples of the Transformers series.
bobofet - 8/25/2009, 3:21 AM
I don't like you Bay. Actually, I hate you.

The Twins are the Batnipples AND Jar Jar Binks combined @breakUbatman

I hope Michael Bay puts the Dinobots in Transformers 3 and Aerialbots in the 3rd movie as well and also the Protectobots. Also Devastator was crap and should be like the cartoon version, plus Optimus Prime should have a trailor on the back of the truck like the cartoon version. Go Dinobots they Rule.
Gestapo - 11/7/2009, 11:38 PM
I really love The Arcee Twins they are the best and Sideswipe the Chevrolet Corvete Stingray 2010 model or 2009.

Destination weddings are also a good alternative for couples who prefer to have something unconventional, since they can be either big-budget Most Beautiful Wedding Dresses affairs or for who might have a smaller budget. These types of weddings are also ideal?for couples who want something more intimate mother bridal dresses and personalised. The popular islands for destination weddings have hotels that offer packages that may include some or all of the following: accommodation, legal documentation, ceremony planning, a personalised wedding co-ordinator Mother of the Bride Beach Wedding Dresses and perhaps even airfare. If hotels do not suit your fancy, there’s always the option of a cosy bed and breakfast, a quaint guest house or even a cruise.
