Say what you will about Michael Bay's "Transformers" film franchise, but there's no denying that it has some of the best robot action sequences in the history of cinema. For a child of the 80s who owned (and still does own somewhere in an attic) many a Transformer toy, seeing them all come to life on the big screen has been a lot of fun. The only thing missing was the inclusion of my beloved dinobots - in particular the Tyrannosaurus Rex-inspired Grimlock. No more. 

As you'll see in the trailer below, we finally get our first real good look at Grimlock and what appears to be Swoop causing havoc and fighting Optimus Prime. 

[ Geek note: While the dinobots typically fought on the side of the Autobots, they did not always get along well with Optimus Prime. So it looks like Bay will keep that rivalry in place in the film. Yes! ]

Until "Jurassic World" roars into theaters in 2015, this is the best big-screen dino action we're going to get.
