I'm 31 and I was around during G1 and Gobots. I got back to the hobby during all the movie hype. And I've been faithful ever since. But I missed alot of stuff from Generation 2 through the Triolgy. But with Universe coming out and with Cheetor and Dinobot, I wondered how cool was Beast Wars. So me and my son and daughter watched Episode 1 Parts 1 and 2 tonight. Here's my take. I like the fact that they can't sustain themselves in robot mode for long periods of time. And The fact that Dinobot values honor for being a Predacon (decepticon) is pretty cool to me. Cheetor seems really cool to me. Almost like a bumblebee type, which i'm guessing that's supposed to be who he is representing. I'm actually pretty excited to see how the story progresses after Megatron was supposedly destroyed in the blast at the end of part 2. For being back in 1998?? I think it's a pretty cool show. Much better than from what I've see from the Energon series. My son also stated how real their beast modes look, and me knowing that they're cgi was a pretty cool thought. Stay tuned for my take on upcoming episodes if you wish.
