    Beast Wars has been claimed as one of the best Transformers series to date, and has created a large fanbase that are still pondering questions about the series that never got answered or fully explored; such as The Trepredacus Council's goal with Tarantulas, The Vok, and Megatron and Dinobot's relationship with one another when they were still working for the same faction.

    A prequel has been teased in the past with last year's Transformers convention having Maximals and Predacons in their Cybertronian modes .

    It looks like the demand is there, but do you think it will ever come to fruition?

    Hah, fruition. I love that word.


    Seriously though, there's always "Theft of the Golden Disk"...

    There's a two-part animation and comic detailing the events leading up to the series' beginning.

    I'd really like to see a form of media that explored the time between G1 ending and Beast Wars beginning.

    Would be nice if a direct to DVD would cover that. Be nice if they could get the remaining G1 cast, hire people that could copy the voices of the gone VA's, and get the BW cast together to pull that off.

    I was talking about the animated short, not a comic, although I wouldn't be surprised if there's also written fiction with that name/story.

    I refuse to acknowledge the prequel crap that FunPub, 3H, Botcon or whatever convention organization spewed out. I don't know what it is about Beast Wars that makes it so hard to adapt to comic book format, but everything we've ever gotten is just awful all across the board.

    With that said, I don't think we even need a prequel. It was cool hearing about some of the stuff that happened in the past between G1 and BW, but we don't necessarily need to go into detail about it. One of the cool things about BW was that it left the transition from Bots and Cons to Maxis and Preds kind of nebulous. The fact that they never went into too much detail about the whole thing left it open for us to imagine how it went, and I liked that.

    I wouldnt mind seeing something on the great upgrade and the creation of Rampage. It would be cool to see the defeated decepticons having to go through political channels to voice their opinion and under what conditions Ravage and whoever else were given their new forms.
