Why would you build robots several times larger than the guys on your side and several times more powerful who can use beam weaponry in dinosaur mode and give them small brains
>give them small brains
Because they're several times larger and more powerful than you.
what do you think's gonna happen when they wise up and realize that you and you're enemies are both cunts fighting a pointless war
iirc Spike took Ratchet and Wheeljack to see the dinosaur exhibit at the museum and Ratchet and Wheeljack thought dinosaurs were awesome and made robot dinosaurs.
They did give them that intelligence-boosting thing, but it only worked when the dinobots were in robot mode.
>Smart Grimlock didn't do anything too treasonous though
In the comic he was always trying to usurp Prime even successfully once. He was like a more competent Starscream
Well to be fair the comic allowed more room for development than the cartoon, and it's not like the two even follow anything more than "Autobots vs Decepticons with some Matrix and Unicron bullshit" anyways. How were the Marvel Dinobots created again?
Nope, Shockwave was also involved with that. In fact, their fight in IDW was a homage to their Marvel incarnations.
Basically, the Dinobots were part of the Arks crew and crashed with the rest of them. Shockwave was on the Decepticon ship, and crashed on Earth for some reason.
The Ark then activated the five Dinobots to fight him, and all ended up deactivated after they all fell into a tar pit.

The Autobot base is too lightly armed too
Since Earth and Autobots are buddies, shouldn't there be armed guards at their base or human soldiers who work under them?
Not just a motherless family and a cripple
This is a good one that keeps bugging me
Why are they 'robots in disguise' or 'more than meets the eye' when nobody uses alt mods as disguises when the Autobots are openly allies with humanity and Decepticons are their enemies?
Why the fuck would you post human guards at the Ark? There are AUTOBOTS there to fight off Decepticon attacks. We actually do see human guards equipped with anti-Decepticon weapons even early on in season 1 - at a factory mass-producing energy weapons to arm the Autobots
and also G.I. Joe since this is the Sunbow universe.- but they don't fare too well, and Optimus Prime and co. still have to save the day. The point is, even well-armed humans can't really do shit against Decepticons.

Because Wheeljack is a mad scientist.

So the Autobots can have snowball fights and go to museums comfortably
Also combined arms
This seems like a really halfassed war effort, the appearance of the Decepticons should have stopped the cold war
>So the Autobots can have snowball fights and go to museums comfortably
I got excited and thought you were talking about Rescue Bots for a moment. Then I remembered that happened in G1 too.
