    Do you think Magmatron was conceived in the design phase at the same time as Magnaboss, and Tripredicus? Are all 3 on the same level of power? Probably not, given the individual beasts of Magmatron don't have their own robot modes...

    Magmatron came out like three series later didn’t he? I can’t imagine he was done to much earlier than Neo.

    They were designed around two years apart per the dates on their toy model sheets.

    Magmatron is very much a beast wars neo toy just by looking at him. They needed a new emperor of destruction who was a dino who was in command of an army of almost entirely dinosaurs. They must of thought, bw Megatron was a dinosaur and a dragon, bwii Galvatron was a dragon, what if the next guy were 3 "dinosaurs" that could combine into a dragon! There was also a main villian from the Brave franchise that was 3 animals that could combine into a robot or a third weird mode, so that too could have involved in the design process.

    Thanks for the detailed response! I'm assuming that since he is an Emperor, he would win against Magnaboss...

    "Emperor of Destruction" (and "New Emperor of Destruction", among other variations) is just the title for Destron leaders in Japan; it has less to do with his actual power and more to remind kids watching the show that he's the big bad guy.

    (This isn't to say he isn't powerful; he is the leader for a reason.)

    Depends. I think US Magnaboss has a good shot considering he is presumably made of 3 G1 guys
