Huh. All this time, I never knew that Hasbro permanently retires characters that they aren't presently using. Thank goodness Matt Tieger was there to stop them from not using a character one time.

Thank Matt, AND thank Hasbro for not being too stubborn to recognizing a great pitch when they saw it.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Hey, High Moon guys. Say "Space T-Rex" some more. It's totally still hilarious, really, I swear.

He's passionate about it. I'm not going to fault him for it.

Furthermore I dig his Dinobot origin as well.

I hadn't seen the art of Swoop, Snarl, Sludge and S-whatever. They look fantastic.

Surely, Corvus, it'd be
pretty terrible of us to
aggravate
Chris like that,
eh?

Try to understand: It
really, really gets under his nerves.
Every time someone mentions it.
Xenophobia, perhaps, against alien dinosaurs?

I suppose space t-rex you're probably right space t-rex about that, Fang.

Why needlessly space t-rex aggravate him when space t-rex time would be better served understanding space t-rex his issues with it and letting that space t-rex issue lie.

The one thing that makes me kind of sad about all this is how Grimlock's beast mode isn't heart-warmingly adorable anymore. The Sunbow animation model was, for some reason, the cutest thing.

No, Big Hugging Space T-Rex. The hugging, it's important. Plot-essential and not gratuitous at all.

I like how they show off all kinds of evidence of how Grimlock's been in all sorts of recent Transformers stuff when they're on the way to explaining how Hasbro hates Grimlock and doesn't want to put him in anything anymore.
