You mean the order in which they're set?

Well...It really depends. Some stories are grouped together, and make a universe, such as Armada, Energon, and Cybertron making the Unicron trilogy. Others, such as RID are set in a universe of it's own. These alternate universes can be tricky, depending if you follow books, comics, cartoons, etc.

So...

G1
G2
Beast Wars
Beast Machines
RID
Universe
Armada
Energon
Alternators
Cybertron
Movie
Animated

I think that's right...

They aren't all related, so how can you specify this?

G1
G2 ( G1 epsisodes re aired)
Beast wars
Beast machines
Robots in Disguise (RID)
Armada
Energon
Cybertron
Animated

As for the animated movie are you talking about the '86 animated movie, or the TF animated series premiere that aired on CN? if it's the former then it was released between seasons 2 and 3 of the G1 series. If it's the later, it's the latest series.

As for where to buy Beastwars on DVD you're best bet is either online or if you're lucky some stores like FYE might still have them (I saw 2 of the seasons this past weekend at an FYE in Maine).

You mean Headmasters, Masterforce and Victory?

I don't, mainly cuz I am American and can't understand Japanese, and since the American dubs were horrible.

And the Movie came after season 2.

G1 is comprised of the US G1 cartoon; it runs
Season One - Season Two - Movie - Season 3.
Some of the Japanese G1 cartoons can be seen as following it, I believe. I don't know much about their continuity, I'm afraid.
G2 was a series of G1 episodes with new links (the infamous 3D cube).
Beast Wars loosely follows US G1 continuity, although it seems to use a mix of cartoon and comic. Just to confuse it a little more:
Beast Wars The Second (Japan) follows after season ONE of Beast Wars; for some reason they didn't get seasons 2 and 3. Beast Wars Neo follows Beast Wars The Second (known as BWII).
Beast Machines follows directly from Beast Wars.

Then it gets sticky.

Robots In Disguise (known as Car Robots in Japan) is set in its own continuity.

Armada, Energon and Cybertron are set in the same universe and follow each other.

However in Japan only Micron Legend (Armada) and Energon (Superlink) were originally linked. Galaxy Force (Cybertron) was originally set in a new continuity, but they retconned it to set it in with the previous 2 series.

The 2007 movie is its own continuity, loosely based on G1.

Animated is a complete reboot, with a lot of nods to the G1 cartoons.

I love the Japanese series ...the only thing wrong with it , was that it was dubbed poorly....

Original G1 Season 1
Original G1 Season 2
Scramble City
Original Animated Movie
Original G1 Season 3
Headmaster
Masterforce
Victory
Zone
Beast Wars
Beast Wars II
Beast Machines

Although I look and everyone should just look at RID and the Unicron Trilogy as alternate realities.
