Beast Machines

Stubborn and surly, Dinotron is the most uncooperative of the Dinobots. Does not favor his new technorganic design but is disgusted by Megatron's "new order." Diamond plated "helmet" coupled with explosive speed send Vehicons flying. Giant tail can shatter a 20 foot concrete cube while titanium hide makes him resistant to most attacks. Tail weapon deploys into spinning blade that immediately carbonizes and disintegrates all alloys with which it comes in contact.

Dinotron was one of the original five founding members of the Dinobots group. Like T-Wrecks,

Dinotron mostly closely resembles his precursor Dinobot in form and weaponry, however Dinotron lacks any real kind of honor code like Dinobot.

Dinotron does not appear to be a homage to any of the original Dinobots team in name or form. He seems instead to be a direct homage to the Maximal character Dinobot instead except with a skull roof added and a new color scheme.

Although the Dinobots' intro states that the Dinobots received their beast modes through the slicing of Dinobot's DNA, it is likely that the Oracle also used the fossil chamber (seen in the "Beast Machines" series) to utilize "Pachycephalosaurus" DNA.

Dinotron's only appearance in the Transformers fiction was in the Transformers: Universe - Wreckers comic series.

Transformers: Universe - Wreckers #1 contains a story called "Departure". The Wreckers, Mutants and Dinobots arrive on Cybertron and are sent on missions by the Oracle.

Transformers: Universe - Wreckers #2 contains a story called "Betrayal" - the Dinobots are attacked by the Dweller.

Transformers: Universe - Wreckers #3 contains a story called "Disclosure". Dinobots Terranotron, T-Wrecks, Triceradon and Dinotron join Devcon, who is hunting Cryotek.

Transformers: Universe - Wreckers #4 - Unreleased issue. Main story would have merged the story with the other Universe comic. Artwork released on the internet contained appearances of the Dinobots, Devcon, Rook, Snarl, Skydive, Longhorn, Che and the Monsterbots.

According to the script for the unreleased issue #4 of "Transformers: Universe - The Wreckers" Devcon and the Dinobots returned to Cybertron where they helped repel the an invasion by the Quintessons.

Toys

*Beast Machines Dinotron:The Dinotron toy was part of the first wave of the Dinobot faction of "Beast Machines" which featured no new molds but did release molds previously unseen in America. He was a recolor of "Beast Wars Neo" Hardhead; however Dinotron traces his roots even further back as Hardhead was actually a slight retooling of the "Beast Wars" Dinobot mold.
