    Hi. I've been a fan of beast wars for a very long time and I refuse to let it go forgotten. Are you guys fans of beast wars and do you think its dying off?

    What ever gave you that idea? It's in the top 3 TF series among a majority of the fandom.

    Yes, and no because we'll be seeing BW toys released in the Universe line.

    Not to mention we got the 10th anniversary line a couple years ago.
    Its all good dawg. Now Generation 2, that's something that needs some more revamping (Movie Jolt FTMFW).

    It just had a 10 year anniversary. And it hadn't been off the air for even half of it's anniversary celebration.

    Beast Wars has stuff coming out this year.

    ROBOTS IN DISGUISE? Beast Machines? Machine Wars? Those are forgotten.

    Nothing's forgotten about Beast Wars at all, it's still the pinnacle of Transformers series quality and innovation wise. Plus you've got the Beast Wars Robot Heroes due out, BlackArachnia and Waspinator returning for Animated, and Classics 2.0 is going to see a new Cheetor.

    Not to Titaniums and Robot Heroes they weren't! (for whatever that's worth)

    (Well, Machine Wars was, but then Machine wars was forgotten a month or two after hitting Kay-Bee shelves ;)  )

    Known in certain circles as the "Why is Prime a monkey now?" show.

    No, they aren't getting their own series... Blackarachnia is one (of several) Decepticons in the current Transformers Animated series. And Waspinator might make an appearance in it later on.

    And as others have said, Beast Wars is far from forgotten. It's still one of the most loved TF series in the fandom and Hasbro is even still making some toys of characters from BW.

    Beast Wars is about as memorable as G1, so no.

    GIANT BEAST WARS FAN RIGHT HEYAH.

    Yeah, BW isn't dying off, it's just that unlike G1, it doesn't have many recognizable names that can be reused a lot. (primarily because they were names based on animals) And unlike G1 again, it doesn't get updates because, lets face it, BW doesn't need updates of characters like G1 because more than half the figs are fine the way they are. They get the odd homage but it's hard to improve apon something that's already fine as it is.

    Takara has the BWX line that, for the most part, is great because it gives better paint decos to the old figs.

    I don't think Beast Wars is forgotten it's just that Hasbro has been too busy to do much with Beast Wars lately. Having to launch both a movie series and the Animated series has kept them a bit on the busy side.

    But now we are starting to see Beast Wars show up in Robot Heroes, Universe, and always rumblings about which characters will show up on Animated. IDW gave us comic books featuring the characters that didn't make the US show. And no way that the fans have forgotten about the series just because other incarnations are getting the spot light right now.
