    Yet people still complain about Prime Breakdown.

    Probably because Terrorsaur and Scorponok doesn't have much of a fanbase as Prime Breakdown did. Yeah, those two do have a few fans but still.

    I would buy several of them if I could find them for a decent price. I guess that's what happens when you enter late.

    So how far have you gotten in Beast Machines? :D 

    Have you gotten to The Weak Component yet?

    Gah!!! Look what this thread did to me.

    Instead of playing video games, or doing my customs, or watching regular tv, or packing for the upcoming long weekend's trip, I was watching Beast Wars!!!

    What started to be "I'll just watch 1 episode, while I eat my dinner" became multiple episodes!!!

    I only wanted to watch "The Low Road", just because it's "The Low Road" :p  . Then by the time "Coming of the Fuzors Part 1" finished, I realized I was supposed to go to bed.

    ***SIGH***

    There was at least one offshoot continuity where they did survive after entering stasis lock and awakened long after the Beast Wars were over, actually. Don't know if that was ever considered for the series though.

    I have finished BM season one episode five. Still not used to those awful-looking bot modes, but I suppose the story is good, though I can tell some of the characters are different from BW.

    Yup. On its own, Machines is a pretty good series. But as a sequel to Wars, it falls short.

    IDW Beast Wars Sourcebook. From what I can understand however, it wasn't good.

    The best thing about Beast Machines Is Jetstorm.

    Just cannonballed the last six episodes of Beast Wars last night. And I don't want it to be over. I absolutely loved the last scene with Waspinator though. I was totally rooting for him for the entire series, because I had forgotten how much of a lovable character he was from the first time I'd watched. Dude couldn't catch a break. Reminded me a lot of the squirrel from Ice Age.


    I've got to say though, there's a couple things I don't get about certain parts of the series. For example, wouldn't all of the ruckus caused by the Beast Wars have woken up the dormant Autobots and Decepticons? I mean, weren't they awoken by a volcano eruption in the original series anyway?

    I'd also really appreciate if someone could clear up the story with the Nemesis. I haven't watched all of the original G1 series, so I'm a little fuzzy, but as I recall, wasn't it sunken in the ocean in G1? So, wouldn't the idea of Megatron flying it and it crash landing somewhere else on earth seriously alter the original history?

    Well, in Optimal Situation, didn't the process of putting Prime's spark back in his chest briefly wake him up? I believe I recall scene like that where he and Primal make eye contact and then Prime just... falls back asleep. Dude must be tired.

    The Nemesis was in the ocean and then again crashed into the ocean.

    I thought the Nemesis crashed to the ground and was later found by explorers in season 2 of G1.

    The volcanic eruption would've been a lot more potent than the blasts from the guns, and the Maximal base was slightly off from the Ark, IIRC in Optimal Situation it is shown at the very end.

    And the Nemesis crashes on land in what would be modern day South America by explorers.

    In G1, the Nemesis floated away from the Ark at the end of the space battle in the first episode. It wasn't seen again until season two when it was shown that it had crashed on Earth and found buried underground in a jungle.

    The ship under the sea was built on Earth and crashed at the end of More Than Meets the Eye part 3.

    How did the Nemesis end up back underwater in the original?
