    The TF Wiki's aren't being the greatest source of information, so who better to ask than the fans themselves (my knowledge doesn't stretch past BW)

    What do we know of the end of the Great War? That is the war between Autobots and Decepticons, coined the Great War in BW.

    Who is dead? Who is alive? Who is leading the respective factions?

    If you guys know what has been stated and from what source (comics, tv etc) I'd love to hear it.

    Is there an official version of the 'end' or is it a cobbling together of ideas?

    Whats peoples thoughts on Furman's alignment as an end to G1/2?

    How the war ended, and who lived, depends on if you go by the US cartoon, the Japanese cartoon, the Marvel comics, the DW comics, ect...

    From What I remember.

    The Maximal and Predacons were participants of the last legs of the Great War. Cybertron isn't gold like in Rebirth.
    The Pax Cybertronia treaty sealed a peace treaty.
    Earth is considered off limits.
    There are billions of new Transformers as opposed to their near state of extinction in G1.
    The Matrix and the Pit facilities produces protoforms for Maximal and Predacons respectively.
    Tarantulas and the Tripedacus Council, who are leading the Predacons, does not count themselves descendants of the Decepticons from the Ark.
    The Maximal Elders and Maximal High Council are leaders of a democratic Maximal government.
    Megatron II hates humans blaming them for the Autobot/Maximal victory.

    Rattrap has an Aunt Arcee.

    There's a ton, with multiple parallel "endings" in some continuities.

    I wish they'd just make a definitive history for the in between of G1 and Beast Wars already. It's amazing how little we actually know about this period.

    Almost impossible to do. Your best bet would be TF Wiki.

    I was always under the impression that he died again at some point, given that they find a statue of him in the remains of Iacon in BM.

    Check my post for in-show. Expanded materials has the Magnabos or his components Ironhide, Prowl and Silverbolt as leaders, reformatted G1 Autobots. Japanese Beastwars has Convoys, Optimus Prime look-a-likes leading the Maximals. Comics has the Predacon Alliance led by the Tripedacus Council with a bunch of generals like Galvatron II, Magamatron and DeathSaurus.

    The reason TFWiki isn't giving you the info you want is because it's not out there to give. There haven't BEEN any stories that detail the end of the Great War - just passing references to what was occurring at the time and allusions to what resulted in various different stories, which basically consist of what RedWolf listed. It's a part of history that just hasn't been detailed.

    I would love to see it. But it would be a political story more than anything.

    -it's hinted that the Tripredacus Council have their own plans to rise again, but Megatron messed up those plans
    -the Maximal High Council is maybe corrupt in some aspects (like the MMS in so many web comics), they sealed data about Great War soldiers, refusing to let Maximals know about Starscream, placing Earth off limits (due to changning attitudes of humanity, or something they don't want to admit to?)

    of course, we'll never know, BW is over, BM killed it. At least we have G1 back in the form of CHUG, and Prime is a hit

    Two things I don´t really seem to like:

    Earth being off limits

    And the apartheid system, I don´t think Optimus would allow such a system. "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings" remember?

    maybe Optimus died again at the end of the War

    Someone should do a web comic or fanfic about the end of the War, with what we know and can speculate

    Is there that online comic by Furman where Prime dies and ends up in the other realm with Megatron who greets him by shaking his hand?

    And there's a furman story set in the future where the Autobots beat the Decepticons, only to splinter into sub-factions and start a new civil war once it's time to choose a new leader.

    I always just assumed that Earth, being a rich source of energy, was placed off limits by both sides.

    Optimus did die again in Headmasters. Maybe the BW time line borrows a bit from the Japanese cartoon?

    That sounds familer.
