    If they were to remake the Beast Wars franchise which would you rather have? A movie or a new animated series?
    Keep in mind that the characters would change.
    For example, Rattrap could be the size of an actual rat and would basically be the Wheelie of the group.

    If I had to choose between a movie or animated series, I would most definitely like an animated series. It would be neat if they explored past Beast Machines and did something with the concept...not the animation (not a big fan of BM animation).

    I would watch it since I've never watched beast wars but it would have to be animated series.

    It would really depend on how the remake was done. I think the characters were the strongest part of the series, so a remake that changed this would risk being a weaker show, frankly.

    I'd rather see a new Beast Wars series, set during the period in Cybertronian history that the original Beast Wars series covered, but featuring a mix of all-new and hitherto comic/toy-only characters (e.g. Polar Claw, Razorbeast).

    How about a short little miniseries set on Cybertron during the Beast Wars time period? Have it set shortly after the Axalon and Darksyde disappear into the past.

    God no. That actually goes against why they took the beast modes in the first place, which was protection from the Energon radiation. They weren't trying to hide, so they didn't need properly sized alt-modes. Thus characters like Rattrap, Waspinator, and Inferno ended up with giant versions of the animals they scanned.

    Off topic, but what's with the MLP pic attached to your posts? Are you trying to put in in a sig?

    I might be interested in a Beast Wars remake, but only if it was animated. I just can't see Beast Wars getting any movies.

    I'd love to see a new beast wars series. With better CGI and faithfull to the originel BW. They can use the same characters and some new ones. And most of the same voice cast

    Really? BM's animation was like, extremely smooth, especially compared to BW. I mean sure the character models were ugly as sin, but it was a very well-made show that still looks great today.

    My only complaint about the animation was that the explosions looked like someone blowing a fire colored balloon up.

    Maybe not a remake but maybe a continuation or what if the bm never happened and they landed on Cybertron.

    I was really really hoping to see the political climate of Cybertron. I wanted to see what there has been mentions of in the show.

    I thought it would be cool. XD

    Why not? After all it would be a TF show, and I always watch those.

    It would be awsome to have a BW cartoon (traditional animation) right along side the CG TF Prime.

    they could just continue BW
    redo the end of season3:
    -add in dark glass
    -change Other Victories
    -change Nemesis

    and then make season 4.
    And have some characters make it back to cybertron. Leave a few characters behind on cybertron (instead of all those deaths in the last 3 episodes) and take a few new character back to earth.

    I'd be for it only if there was new characters in it. I would want that six year old that sees the series have his or her own favorites characters. Like I was lucky to be able to have, instead of having characters of a past generation push at them.

    So my idea would be like this:
    Takes place after Beast Machines, long after it.
    The Predacons have broken apart between anti Megatron and pro Megatron.
    The anti Megatron Predacons sides with the Maximals.
    The pro Megatron Predacons rebuilds the Vehicons as an elite fighting force instead of mindless drones.
    Season one and two would be war on Cybertron.
    Season three would have the Maximal Primal Prime chase after the Predacon Magnatron and crashes on a future Earth. One that humans have already left behind.
    Season four would feature wars on two fronts.
    Season five would feature Magmatron trying to locate a lost super weapon that Tarantulas was working on before being blown up. The old Predacon lore turns out to be real and its possible doomsday for life all over.

    Either a dub of BWII/Neo or a mini-series like IDW's Beast Wars series.

    Also You need Garry, David and Scott in the show some how.

    yeah, I would watch it, but I would love to see the step between G1 and BW... the great upgrade and all that, ending with the part when Predacon steal the Golden Disc
    and then, some episodes AFTER Beast Machines and leave a big cliffhanger with some characters dissapearing into time-space disturbances (and then connect that with TF Prime... it would be amazing and stupid :D !)
