    Was thinking about the TF: Evolutions series (If one story can be called a series) and was wondering what else they could do, and began to wonder what forms Prime & co would have adopted if they awoke in the Beast era. Some I though would work that would suit their personalities:
    Prime - Lion
    Megatron - Bear
    Ironhide - Rhino
    Starscream & seekers - Eagles
    Wheeljack - Orangutan
    Springer - Kangaroo?
    Soundwave - Bat

    Any other ideas?

    Bear seems awfully... "fuzzy" for Megatron. I do think something like a T-rex or made-up Dragon would better suit Megatron as in Beast Wars.

    In fact, I think Prime would make a really cool bear.

    And Soundwave already was a bat/crocodile.

    Yeah Megs would be more like a giant snake
    Starscream and the seekers would be giant flying lizards
    I see Wheeljack as more of a Gazelle or maybe a Koala

    For Prime and Megatron, I think the early BW comic book would work. Just do Prime as a bat and Megatron as a croc.

    Given a G1 in the Beast Wars, the Dinobots are a must for sure.

    I see the Seekers as sharing the Terrorsaur mold. I keep seeing War Within Thrust as a pre-Beast Terrorsaur anyway.

    I'm happy with Prowl, Ironhide and Silverbolt being the Magnaboss components.

    Soundwave could maybe be a Manta ray.

    Reflector could combine into a large snake.

    Omega Supreme - Blue whale

    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker could be some form of feline.

    Trailbreaker and Brawn as bears.

    Hound as a dog.

    Triple changers like Blitzwing and Astrotrain would be pretty interesting since it's something that Beast Wars didn't really hit on very hard.

    For Ironhide though I'm thinking something like the glyptodon since it's like a giant armadillo.

    I think Prime as a Lion is cool, if original Beast Wars would have featured Lio Prime instead of Optimus Primal, I probably would have liked it more *g*

    i was thinking as i read this thread...
    why all these modern animals.
    i thought Beast Wars was set BEFORE the G1 posse landed on Earth, so why can't Prime had been some other massive mammal?

    just a theory.

    Beast Wars takes place when the G1 bots are already crashed and buried on Earth, actually. The Maximals scan the forms of the local wildlife (already very close to the creatures of 'now'..funnily enough, the humans are less modern :p ). The dinosaur forms of the Predacons are scanned from fossils and remains of dinosaurs.

    Don't they adopt forms of mammoths and other ice age creatures in the beginning of Hearts of Steel?

    If G1 happened in the Beast era, I'd still be a Voltron fan. :lol
