    By the time the beast wars begin, were the original Optimus and Megatron still alive? If not, how did they die? Oh and is beast wars continuing headmasters and the other japanese cartoons?

    If I remember right, the original optimus and megs were dead. Also, the reason they are all so small compared to regular transformers, is cause of something in the comics I think where they shrank down to conserve energon. I'm not the most knowledgeable of G1 history, but to the best of my knowledge, it's something like that.

    It's assumed that Optimus Prime and Megatron/Galvatron are long gone by this point. The Maximals and Predacons are an evolution of Micromasters. Possibly a combination of Micromasters and Pretenders with the organic parts...

    I think I read somewhere that the size difference was to show that Optimus Prime and Megatron were more or less seen as gods or whatever (like if you went to the Lincoln Memorial or something).

    The original Optimus and Megaron are supposed to be deceased probably from old age but it is never stated exactly how they died. The canon reason they shrunk was to conserve energy but the real world reason was to make their sizes closer to their animal alternate modes.
    The series is supposed to take place after Genertaion One but it could work as a successor to the Headmaster series but I do not know much about Headmasters.

    Actually, from what I believe one of the writers said was that Optimus Prime is just a space explorer now. I don't know anout Megatron though. He could be dead or alive somewhere.

    I don't know about Galvatron, but the writers of Beast Wars have said Optimus Prime became a space explorer.

    ^Beat me to it.

    They relate to Japanese Beast Wars, not US Beast Wars.

    So anyone knows what happened between the end of The Autobot/Decepticon war and the beginning of the Beast Wars era?

    One thing we know for sure is what is named "The Great Downgrade" where everyone was shrunk down to conserve Energon.

    What the Maximal and Predacon ones? I assume they just evolved out of the already existing Autobot and Decepticon ones.

    I would assume,largely the Autobots, since it seems they won the war.

    I'm sure there were a few decepticons that helped out, most likely members of the G1 Predicons.

    Oh...well I don't know much about the Maximal leadership but I assume the Tripredacus council is either the remnants of the Predacon leadership from the previous war or they simply appointed themselves by virtue of being the strongest/most influential.

    However at one point BW Optimus and Megatron were to be reincarnated version of the G1 versions.
