    Would anyone want to see another Beast Era in the Transformers Universe? We've been back to vehicles for a while now and I was wondering if anyone else would like to see them return to beasts for a while.

    I think it'd be cool, but I've really got my doubts as to whether or not they could realistically measure up to what we got in the 90's while remaining within today's price points. I mean with cars & mechanical things it works because solid castings & few paint apps make sense (after all, you can have a fully blue car with painted headlights & you're good), but for an animal... not so much. The amount of mold detailing also tends to be a lot higher, so unless we're talking about reuse of existing molds (be it physically or already designed), I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Space animals could probably break the ice, though. :)

    I'd love to have seen a non-Beast Machines sequel to Beast Wars (not that I didn't like BM) or even a prequel filling in the gaps between the end of G1 and the start of BW. Or maybe even a show set on Cybertron during BW that focused on some other characters not featured in the shows.

    Yeah, I'd like to see that done too, and then a sequel to Beast Machines couse I doubt everything went happily every after. If anything, most of the Cybertronians were probably pissed off at seeing plants & shit everywhere & proceeded to blame Cheetor's clan for bringing Megatron to them.

    I'd like to see a prequel to TFP covering the battles on ancient Earth. I like to think that they had beast modes.

    Be nice if transformers prime were to throw in a twist ending with it actually leading into a race wide protoformed downsizing of the Cybertronians leaving the ending open ended on the matter.

    Have the ending cover the origin of the Protoform technology and the birth of the very first groups of protoformed Maximal and Predacon.

    Please God no! I already had to suffer through too many years of Monkey Optimus.

    I would love to see a return, but if only a new BW series would avoid what's been going on with the return of the Autobots and Decepticons. It just gets old after awhile of seeing mainly the same characters over and over.

    I rather not have a new Optimus Primal, Rattrap, Waspinator, ect. I rather see new characters and use character development to make them just as iconic. Maybe make Polar Claw the leader of his own Maximal unit going against Magnaboss or something like that.

    yeah I think protoform really just means "without Alt-mode" BW was just the first to show that (and being the second fiction it's not like there was a huge lack of it prior)

    But introducing some smaller Beast forms or even Dinobot style Beast forms into prime would be cool!

    A Beast Era return would be downright amazing, but as many other point out it's all about HOW it could work in today's Transformers. A full blown Beast show would not work because of the yellow Camero and blue/red semi truck. It's just too popular. I'd like to see a few Beast characters mixed in with the current TV show's cast. It'd be cool IMO to see an animal scout among the Autobot/Decepticon ranks. It doesn't matter if it's a bird, elk, dog, whatever. I think that's a realistic way we can see the beginning of a new Beast Era.

    A new Beast Era? Certainly.

    A Beast Wars remake? No.

    As a collector who missed out on Beast Wars entirely, I'd love to see Hasbro release some new beast molds.

    ...Provided they aren't shell formers. Or at least not all of them.

    Agreed. A new Beast Era is welcome in my book, but remaking Beast Wars? NO.

    Pete, you have no idea how much I want that. But what with the card issues FunPub's been having, I'm a little hesitant to join the subscription service...
