    He was a great talent, and a remarkable man. I met him once before Beast Wars, and once after and he was pure class and enthusiasm.
    He loved our favorite 'brand' and he was humbly appreciative of our passion for it. We lost a "good one" today folks.

    Rest in peace, Mr. DiTillio. His work on Beast Wars: Transformers has influenced me greatly, and that is something that I will be eternally grateful for.

    It's not a simple thing to revitalize a franchise. The success of Beast Wars went way beyond toy sales. It reenergized a franchise and its fan base, built a solid foundation of enduring mythology, and even made jaded Geewunners like me excited about his own personal take on the TF universe. He and Bob Forward deserve credit for all that. No mean feat.

    Gutted. He couldn’t have been that old. Condolences to his family.

    It’s scant consolidation, but at least he had the knowledge that his work was cherished and lives on.
