Dinobot Eyes/Visors: Red or Blue?

Postby Mr.Deflok » Sun Aug 28, 2011 1:08 am

Just wondering what you guys thought about the Dinobots' eyes? They've been red, they've been blue, but what colour are they to you? Red looks rad but part of being an Autobot has always, to me, been having blue eyes.

Just gauging thoughts as I'm doing a custom at the mo' and need to decide.

Go with red, it suits their colour scheme way better, makes them look more badass, and apart from the TV series, all their other fictional appearances have had Red eyes.

It's the only thing about my Grimlock tattoo that I regret, not giving him Red eyes.

Autobots. Blue. Done.


I don't know what else Mr. Ash has been looking at, but I'm going to buy him a blue felt tip pen for Christmas so he can fix it. *






*Christmas is months away Mr. Ash, if I forget by then I'm sorry.

I don't think it doesn't really matters anymore, but didn't the Dinobots in the cartoon maintain that they were separate from the Autobots?

But to make a preference on Red vs. Blue I'd say blue for uncovered eyes, and red for visors. But that's just me. I've always thought Grimlock looked better in red.

It depends. I couldn't see them as anything other than blue in the cartoon, but they're red in pretty much all other canon.

Yeah, they did most of the time, especially in the earilier stuff. But they are still Autbots, born of autobots.... as it where.

yep pritty much


grimlock decided to take sides with the autobots because they had a duel or fight everytime he knocked optimus prime to the ground he got right back up
by showing grimlock his courage to not stand down or give up optimus prime gained grimlocks respect

same with the areial bots they could chose there allegence
