    I have my copies, but thought I might get a copy for my nephew. Guess I'll be telling my bro to go hunting too.

    Sorry to bump this old thread. I didn't check back after I posted.

    I'm just surprised. I thought DVD quality was actually below TV quality, and that any master tapes or whatever it is that the station uses to air the episodes were in a higher quality.
    DVD is such terrible quality.

    ... Maybe I'll just have to plug in my old PC's DVD drive and controller card, and find my old Beast Machines DVD and try to get my own screencaps of Strika. All the pics online are crap, and there's so few. I was wanting them earlier in the year to try and do a digibash for an alternate BotCon exclusive.

    Thanks. Glad you recognized the components. They don't look much alike, but on experimentation they came out alright. I sort of got an Egyptian headdress look from it.
    I also did a G1 Autobot + BW Maximal logo, and G2 Autobot + BM Maximal logo.

    STOP HATING BEAST MACHINES EVERYONE!don't you know that you made Hasbro and the entire Transformers franchise has put the greatest couple in Transformers history:Silverbolt and Blackarachnia in a great departure depression?and the Beast era is starting to fade from existance?Silverbolt and Blackarachnia should be together forever.Transformers:universe destroyed the life's and destiny's of every single transformer in the entire universe,Transformers:Animated insulted the G1 Transformers series and the Beast era at the same time,and Transformers:p rime is making Transformers fans forget that Beast Wars and Beast Machines ever existed.so I'm making my own series that is a true sequel to both Beast Wars and Beast Machines.where the maximal's stay in their techno-organic form's,Cheetor is still the new leader and the new main character is a girl who has power's the of optimus primal,prime,and elita one and when i'm done with my first season stoy i will show it to Hasbro studios so it can be a part of the Transformers series line and toyline.(p.s.)there are no such thing's as opinion's.

    Just finished my dvd set. It a good series as of story but the art style for the maximals is super ugly. Cheetor would have looked good if he didn't skip leg day. Nightscream's robot mode is nightmare fuel. Rattrap and primal robot modes are nothing like the beast war designs. Blackarachnia and silverbolt looked were decent. I also didn't like rattrap character change to being a coward. Besides those nit picks I still enjoyed the series and I think it is better then G1 and Prime but not as good as animated and beast wars.

    What does that even mean? His legs were badass.

    It makes sense though. Often in Beast Wars when put into a position of total powerlessness he was a coward. In BM he is permanently in a position of powerlessness, with only a few advantages from his rat mode. Then, once he finally breaks free of his beast form into what he's always associated as the "useful" mode, he's no more formidable than before. Hell, that's the entire point of "The Weak Component." He's completely stripped of all his tools, and without guns or weapons, he's very light on bravado. Think of it: how many problems in BW did Rattrap solve without shooting them? None.

    The Oracle was kind of a jerk. Though him zipping around on his wheels and fucking with Vehicons was pretty awesome.

    I also agree, Nightscream is the absolute worst thing ever. He looks like ass. Wheras Cheetor had the long digigrade legs to indicate speed, and Blackarachnia had the long slender arms and hands to fit her arachnid appearance, Nightscream was just ugly ideas mixed into one. Nothing about him felt like it reflected his character or alt-mode, except his attacks. (which WOULD'VE been cool on someone not crap)

    you opinion does not exist you idiot! beast machines was the greatest thing that ever happened.even if rattrap didn't have weapons he still did good thing's,nightscream was the best thing that ever happened and he was not ugly,the oracle was not a jerk,the maximal's new look were perfect and just because silverbolt acted like batman and wolverine in this series it doesn't mean he doesn't love blackarachnia anymore.(p.s.)you are not a true TF fan.

    Posting Rules 1 and 13 .... Let's keep it clean and civil folks. If you don't like the series, fine, but leave it at that and move on.
