Master question: Who are the "Unleashers" (the primitive telepathic aliens)? Judging from the previous BT story chapters, they must either be from an obscure G1 episode or some G.I. Joe/related story.

According to the story all the other dinos are dead. :(

Not dead, but in emergency stasis lock, since Grimlock was the only one to 'regain consciousness' and there is a stated intent that the Dinobots will be cured and restored to full operating condition later.
Interestingly, the translation seems to imply that this Binaltech form is pretty much a temporary situation for Grimlock.

Unless the 'Unleashers' come from a Japanese episode, I don't think they come from a TV episode. The closest things I can think of would be the shadow aliens encountered by Prime and Jhiaxus and their troops in the Marvel Generation 2 comic, though those parasites affected everybody rather than just the Dinobots.

You're not referring to the Swarm?

EDIT: Spengs, if you read this: What were they Alya from "Web World" called in Japan?

Stasis lock? I thought the idea was to fit BT in the G1 universe, between season 2 and 3. Stasis locked Dinobots sounds more like a Marvel story...

According to Doug Dlin, who translates the story for BWTF while checking back with Hirofumi Ichikawa (the writer of the story), the BT story is supposed to be a rough continuation of G1 season 2 plus some season 3 elements (EDC; Autobot City) and even including "crossover" elements (D.R. Faireborn aka Marissa's father aka Flint from G.I. joe) and even non-TF elements (Count von Rani aka Iron Klaw and General Krieger aka General Blitz).

It's not neceressarily "what happened before TF:TM".

No. I'm referring to the shadow parasites from issue #3.
I'm undoubtedly wrong about those being the Unleashers, however.

'Lieutenant Officer'? That sounds as if it might translate better as 'Lieutenant Commander' (Grimlock's function when he was a Pretender).
(I'm not knocking the translation efforts; I think she does a good job.)

Gonna check that out tomorrow.

If you look closely, that's also the function written in roman letters on the front side of the card. :)

Which only proves that I often miss the obvious, even when it's presented right in my face. Nothing new there.

Very well. The error's been fixed.
