So I tried a few months back to get into beast wars after listening to everyone talk about how good it was. People referred me to certain episodes where it ties in with G1 and I simply couldn't get into it. The writing was pretty good, but the fact that they transformed into Beasts instead of vehicles just didn't work for me. Plus changing their names and making their voices sound like the Earthly creatures into which they transformed was way to cheesy for me. However, one thing turned it around...Dinobot. I just recently rewatched in order after seeing the episode Code of a Hero. I LOVE the show now! LOVE IT!! Dinobot has to be the BEST character in any series of transformers EVER!! His inner turmoil and character development (including his clone) is just done really well. I still don't think I will be buying the toys, however the 10th anniversary beast wars toys do look VERY show accurate and if I were into it more, I would be all over the toys as well. I finally get it... And as a side note, I still do not like beast machines. Not sure that will ever change!
