    Back in 2001, Botcon released a set of prints featuring the Beast Wars show characters, rendered directly by Mainframe. Featured all the cast, in all versions. One for each side, Maximals and Predacons. In 2006, for the 10th anniversary I scanned those in and shared. Well, I completely forgot I did that, and ran across the PSD files today. When I initially exported, the images were small because the internet was fine with 1024 images.

    So, today, enjoy a slightly better retouched version, at 4096 pixels. Perfect way to cap the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars! See you in 2026 for the 8192 versions. :)

    I especially like the texture on the Maximal poster and the Vok floating around in the background of the Predacon poster.

    I've seen these before on TFWiki except without the Beast Wars Transformers 1996-2016 logo in the corner.

    I kind of wish the Maximal poster included Transmutate. I mean if Ravage gets to be included with the Predacons then why not put her in there with the Maximals? I also kind of wish the Beast Machines characters were in there as well.

    Thank you very much for sharing.

    Besides the date, how were these touched up?

    I would love those posters...huge, though. 11" x 17" or bigger.

    So far, the only one on eBay is the revised Predacon poster. It's a pretty good price all things considered, you had to be at the dinner at Botcon 01 to get them; and then you had to wait for the revised Predacon poster to be mailed to you :lol 
    Or you could wait until someone decides to sell the set of 2 (or 3). Which is what I'd do so I'm not left with an additional piece with nowhere to go :/

    It's always made me laugh that the top of TM Rattrap's head is missing :p

    It's technically not missing. Both his brain and wheels are rendered in really low poly for some reason, so they're more geometric than they should be.

    Either way, it's a little unfortunate.

    Thank you very much! I can't thank you enough! I've always loved these wallpapers, and wished that they had been rendered in a higher resolution (but I bet there are digital copies laying around on some CD somewhere....).


    A rather unfortunate oversight by whomever was in charge of setting up the models for this render.
