    it seems the transformer community has more of an open mind now-a-days. powerlinx, minicons, even retarded twins. with all that is accepted in the community, there is the war on transformers and animals. it seems the fandom has made leaps and bounds since '96 and i think the classic series should be renewed especially after seeing the sucess of transformers animated. after all, beast wars is nearing 20 years...

    thoughts?

    With the movies in full swing my guess is not any time soon. Little kids will be keeping their eyes out for Bumblebee, big red semi trucks and Starscream.

    At least in a mainline.

    Universe could revisit the toys some more, but I don't think we'll see a full on new beast wars cartoon.

    It'd be nice if Beast Wars II actually got released on DVD here.

    I hope universe brings out a bunch of new molds, but I don't think they should bring a beast wars cartoon back yet. Maybe after the next series whatever it is.

    I think the whole Beast Era should STAY DEAD. Just my opinion.

    I like beast wars, it was really cool. Interesting characters, interesting stories, good writing. However I really don't want them to do it again. Much as I like it, I still prefer cars to cheetahs.

    Beast Wars is my favourite cartoon series but I'd rather they not bring it back and alter it so much that it has potty humour in it. Maybe bring back some of they toys, yes, that would be awesome.

    Well, considering what happened to Blackarachnia and Waspinator in TFA, there could be potential for an Animated interpretation of BW, maybe in a comic form.

    But BW is good as it is. It only needs revisiting in toy form, IMO.

    its like on rise of the predacons (i think thats the title) when black arachnia was stranded with the old crew. i know it was just a nod, but hey. plus i wasnt around during g1 so g1 reinterpretations arent as traumatizing to me as compared to other people, but if i saw a beastwars reinterpretation i would freak out: ie universe cheetor, who i still friggin bought because cheetor is a beast :]

    I don't even know how they would bring Beast Wars back. Beast Wars was one of the few TF shows that actually tied into something. The only way I see them bringing it back is if they reinvented it. I still would love to see Transtech become a reality but now there's that one comic so I guess that's doubtful

    I'd be up for Beast Wars Animated. I think it'd be pretty cool. But, it's not going to happen. As someone else has mentioned Hasbro needs to capitalize on the popularity of Optimus Prime, not Optimus Primal.

    I'd be happy just to see a three-part special as to what happened to Blackarachnia & Waspinator.

    wait, is it still animated if it's only in comics?...(I know what you mean)

    I totally agree with your second statement, don't mess with my BW.

    Well, the graphics could use an update, first season especially. An extended ending closer to the original plans would be good too. We certainly don't need a complete redo though.

    I'm looking at the tags for this thread... what the hell is "optomism"?

    I say NO to Beast Wars Animated. I loved the BW. It was pleasing to the eye. I will say ok to bring it back if the Original writers, Animators, and Actors came back to do the Magnatron series. Other than that, no on the Jay Leno Robots.

    If they had been given another season, I'm sure that Animated itself would have covered Beast Wars characters in full.

    I can't help but agree with ORIO on this.
