Paramount Pictures showed that the movie will actually feature the Mini Dinobots.
The Mini Dinobots teaser was likewise posted on the Transformers 5 Facebook page that garnered more than 7,000 positive reactions and 700 shares in just nine hours after it was uploaded on the social media page.
The pre-game trailer showed the profile stats of each Dinobot featuring their respective skills, abilities, and size comparisons. The Dinobots were likely featured as players vying for the “Most Valuable Player” award to attune it to the Super Bowl game.
The mini versions of Dinobots feature Grimlock, Slug, and Strafe and they are quite different compared to how they were featured in the previous film, “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”
The Mini Dinobots teaser did not show any new video footage from the actual “Transformers: The Last Knight” film but it showed a glimpse of how they are in action, fighting against the Decepticons.
They were likewise introduced in the trailer as if they were football players in a Super Bowl game.
Based on the animated series, the Dinobots are a group of robots that transform into dinosaur mode or prehistoric animals. They are always portrayed as tremendous, strong, and independent Autobots.
In “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” the Dinobots were a big help for Optimus Prime and his friends to come and defeat Megatron and the Decepticons. Their animalistic rage was used by Optimus Prime to save the earth and his human friends against the havoc Megatron and his army has been causing.
Amongst the featured Dinobots in the film were Grimlock, who was seen transforming into a Tyrannosaurus and depicted as the team leader. The way the Dinobot is portrayed indicates that it has no weakness. It is also known for its aggressiveness and very powerful too as a weapon of destruction.

The last one was Strafe, a flying Pteranodon used by Bumblebee to defeat Megatron’s troop of Decepticons, and is ideal for aerial assaults because it can fly.
