    I don't think there's a score, but what I DO know is there's a composer. Find out who that is, then start a campaign to get him invited to Botcon or some other official Transformers function. I believe this is how we got "The Protoform Sessions" and "Artistic Transformations" out of Vince DiCola. Prove to the composer that there's a market, however small, for his score, and if he's anything like DiCola, he'll find a way to get it to us.

    Oh, for sure. I think even having something by next year's Botcon would be optimistic. First the composer has to have an interest in putting a CD together. Then the CDs have to be manufactured. Then there's legal entanglements regarding who owns the music (whoever owns Beast Machines right now would be legally entitled to a cut of the profits if the CD is music lifted straight from the show). If it's reinterpretations of the music/"music in the Beast Machines style", similar to what Vince DiCola did with his CDs, there's an even bigger gray area AND the composer would need time to, you know, compose.

    But anything worth having is worth working for. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and all that.

    Robert 'Bob' Buckley is the composer for Beast Machines and many other titles of Mainframe Entertainment during the 1990s(He currently works for Nerd Corp. Entertainment).So far,I have only found one track from Beast Machines that can be found from his website,right here:

    Welcome to BobBuckley.com

    Truly this is a person that should be a guest for many conventions,as he really has created such wonderful track for those memorable,groundbreaking shows during the Beast Era.

    A clean version of the Vehicon Theme can be found at the start of "The Key", although it is only the basic loop without any of the variations.

    I have contacted Bob via e-mail several times over the past few years. Prior to Botcon 2007, he mentioned there was a possibility the soundtracks for Beast Wars and Beast Machines might be released as a convention exclusive. Alas, Botcon 2007 came and went (I was there as well) without any such exclusive.

    Three years later, I sent another e-mail inquiring as to the status of these scores. Unfortunately he hasn't replied since.
