I was reading the tech specs of the first couple of waves of beast wars toys and i noticed something. The tech specs painted a picture that the beast wars will be set in present times. Heres Megatron's tech specs: Millions of years ago, Tyrannosaurus rex ruled the earth. Today, Megatron plans to do the same! Duplicating dinosaur DNA stolen from human research labs, the evil leader has re-engineered his body structure and equipped it with fearsome high-tech firepower! Poisonous paralyzer fluids blast from his gaping jaws, while his powerful pincherclaw can cut an enemy in half! Be afraid, earthlings. Be very, very afraid. Tarantulas': An eight-armed master of the martial arts, this ninja nightmare slashes his way through battle virtually unstoppable! The heroic Optimus Primal suspects him of being responsible for the disappearance of numerous earthlings, and recent rumors suggest the existence of giant cocoons where Tarantulas may store his unfortunate prey.He must be stopped before he spins his web of terror across the galaxy! Rattrap's: Scouring city streets for Predacon enemies, Rattrap maintains his strength by feeding on grunge and grime and any wretched refuse he may encounter along the way. A top-notch soldier, his fellow Maximals rely on his reconnaissance reports to locate enemy outposts. They respect him...but they wouldn't dare to share his meals! I was just wandering if anyone knows what the original story behind beast wars was going to be? Also does anybody know why Hasbro made 2 different Optimus Primals (Bat/Gorilla) and 2 Megatrons (Crocodile/T-Rex)? Any help will be appreciated.
