Hey, I know this may be long, but help would be appreciated. Hey. I've been a huge fan of the beast wars/machines cartoons for years. I don't really care for any of the other transformers series. For the longest time I thought the beast wars/machines characters ended at the end of the show, but then there was the gathering and ascending but those comics didn't include our original beast wars heros and villians. I recently found out that some of these characters came back to life... Optimus Primal. I thought he died with Megatron at the end of beast machines Depth Charge. I thought he died with Rampage Rhinox. I thought he died as Tankor. Tigerhawk/Tigatron/Airazor. I thought they died at the end of Beast Wars by the Nemsis. So where exactly did these characters come back to life? I'm assuming comics, but what were those comics called? Is the original Dinobot still alive too, or was his heroic death permanent in code of hero? Basically, I want to own everything there is to own when it comes to beast wars and beast machines. I'm not into beast wars neo or beast wars 2 or any other transformers series. Im just really into optimus primal's teama and megatron's team. So can someone please tell me what I need to buy from ebay or whatever that relates to beast wars/machines continuity? What I have so far is the complete beast wars series and beast machines series on dvd and the gathering and ascending comics. What else do I need to get for the full story on my heroes and villians? Thanks for your help.
