Spino is an Autobot in The Transformers:Infiltrators. He was trapped on Earth for numerous years, and scanned his alternate mode there. He is very powerful, able to take on multiple opponents at once with his arsenal of weapons. He is quite anti-social, even to his fellow Autobots.
Spino was trapped on Earth with Grimlock's Dynobots, after he followed them under Optimus' orders. He landed and was trapped. After scanning his alternate mode, he masqueraded as a dinosaur in the African jungles for thousands of years. After his ship rescued him, his organics were destroyed in the orbital bounce. He fights a Sandworm, but is defeated. He was rescued by Towhard before AX-IV explodes.
Spino can achieve 90 mph in beast mode with ease. He is armed in this mode with two cannons in his mouth and powerful jaws that can snap through a Decepticon's limbs with no effort. In robot mode, he carries an energo-sword and a rocket launcher. He is very strong, able to tear a Decepticon to pieces. He is also well-armored, particularly against light-based weapons. His anti-social tendencies make him somewhat unlikely to receive help, and he is not on good terms with most of his fellow Autobots.
Spino is largely grey with gold claws. He has red eyes.
Behind the scenes
Spino's beast mode is the author's favorite dinosaur, and he has wanted to make a Spinosaurus transformer for some time.
