Fictional biography

Terranotron thinks very highly of himself, but he backs up his boasts when he's in battle. Loves it when the odds are against him. Takes on multiple squadrons of jet drones by himself, then follows it by plasma-bombing divisions of tank drones on the ground. Exterior Alloy coating makes him invisible to enemy detection. Convinced that aerial strategy is the key to defeating the Vehicons, and argues the point constantly with ground-based Maximals. The friction fades when they enter battle, though - he may be a hotshot, but he's always a team fighter in combat.

The Dinobots in "Departure" by 3H Enterprises

In "Departure" the Wreckers, Mutants and Dinobots arrive on Cybertron and are sent on missions by the Oracle. [1]

After arriving on Arkus in "Betrayal" the planet the Dinobots are attacked by the Dweller and his energon zombie horde.[2]

In "Disclosure" the surviving Dinobots Terranotron, T-Wrecks, Triceradon and Dinotron join Devcon, who is hunting Cryotek.[3]

According to the script for the unreleased issue #4 Devcon and the Dinobots returned to Cybertron where they help repel an invasion by the Quintessons.

Fun Publications

The story of the Dinobots continues in Wreckers: Finale Part II by Fun Publications. Arriving on Cybertron during a Quintesson invasion the Dinobots take the eastern flank of the defense, driving the Quintessons back, which is reported to Cheetor by Skydive. During the battle T-Wrecks finds the fact that the other Dinobots are keeping score of their kills a bit tacky. During the battle Terranotron steals a Sharkticon laser rifle, which he uses against the Sharkticon hordes.
