The interior of toy packaging is rarely where people go to get their movie scoops, but a leaked shot of the inside material of a Transformers: Age of Extinction product box reveals the movie's Dinobots in their dinosaur modes — and that Grimlock and pals have updated their ranks for the new movie.

Thanks to weibo user HarryHuo, you can see Grimlock the tyrannosaurus, as well as Slag the triceratop, both from the original cartoons. Based on the previously revealed Dinobot names, I think we can guess that Snarl, who was originally a stegosaurus, is the spinosaurus featured on the packaging, while Strafe is likely the pteradon formally known as Swoop, and Slash is the velociraptor who was introduced in Beast Wars. Alas, no sign of Sludge the brontosaurus — chances are herbivores just weren't X-treme enough for Mr. Bay.

I'm gonna say it.

The Dinobots were utterly retarded. I loved watching the original cartoons and some of the newer cartoons. I was there in the theater with the animated movie and the live-action ones.

The conciet of the Transformers is that they adapt their machinery to be in disguise and so they mimic machinery that is found. The Dinobots are robotic versions of dinosaurs and do not mimic them at all. A Transformer that looks like a Porche LOOKS like a Porshe. A Transformer that looks like a T-Rex looks only passingly sort of like a T-Rex. They totally break the central conciet of the Transformers and I've never liked them. I was not even particularly fond of Lazerbeak, etc.
