Now you know as a kid during the 80's, a favorite of mine were the Dinobots!
I would like to suggest re-introducing this rebelious group of five originals from 1984.
The Decepticons and the Autobots were always trying to get this group to join their side. The Dinobots kind of remind me of our Rams. We are the outsiders of the Ford and Chevy/GMC groups. Come on Michael Bay, you remember these five dont ya? Maybe create a sixth Dinobot character that transforms into a BadAss HD RAM!
