As I sat and rewatched the Beast Machines DVD set at work during my free time this past week, a thought occurred to me: What if Beast Machines had been the roaring (no pun intended) success its predecessor was? What would the future of the Transformers been? Transtech may have been a reality and not just an afterthought. Maybe the AEC trilogy would've been delayed until the series' could've been done properly.....or maybe it wouldn't even had to exist. I just get the feeling that if the ball hadn't been dropped so thoroughly with Beast Machines, "Modern" Transformers may have been developed in a radically different way.
