Affiliation: Maximal

Sub-Group: Dinobot

First seen in stores:
                    March 2000

Other appearances: None other than the brief cameo appearance in the Botcon 01 exclusive comic seen below.  But how much cooler would it have been if he were named: "Sludge!"   Perhaps this could still be thought of as the original Dinobot reborn!

Origin: "In a desparate attempt to combat Megatron's technorganic virus on Cybertron, the Oracle supercomputer reformats a group of surviving Transformers, rendering them immune to the plague and extremely powerful.  Using the DNA schematics of former Maximal Dinobot, each warrior emerges as a hybrid of savage prehistoric power and advanced Cybertronian robotics... the result, the fearsome Dinobots are born!"
