Toy Fair 2014 Editorial: TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION Dinobots Reveal Are For a New Generation of Fans, Not Most G1 Fans



While it's always tough to hide bias being a online writer and reporter, sometimes you have to let loose (hence this being both an editorial and reveal post). Now is one of those times where I, being a fan of the Transformers since I was a child in the early 80s, will show my bias for the Dinobots in this summer's Transformers: Age of Extinction by simply saying, "YUCK!"

The Generation 1 purist in me hates their colorful look. However, the unbiased journalist in me understands this incarnation of the Dinobots are for a new, younger generation of Transformers fans. Doesn't mean I have to like them though. And I seriously don't. This is all coming from a hardcore, original Transformers fan too, so this is by no means to bring any disrespect to the Transformers fan base and is simply my personal opinion on the new Dinobots.

Anyway, here's the Toy Fair 2014 official Hasbro press release images for the new Dinobots in the Transformers sequel.
