    I remember seeing Headmasters and in one of the episodes Scorponok planted bombs all over Cybertron's core and everywhere else also. We know what happens next, Cybertron goes KABOOM!. But what I am more questioning is how did they managed to repair and make Cybertron a planet again by the time Beast Wars took place. Did anything happen in that 300 years span besides the Great Upgrade?

    I remember reading a theory that the Cybertron seen in BW/BM is a new planet that was renamed after the first one was destroyed.

    Though BW/BM could also not be in continuity with Japanese G1 but instead is with the American Sunbow G1.

    The Japanese shows never took place in the US continuity. So unless you're explicitly looking at this from a Japanese Beast Wars perspective, there is no problem because Headmasters never happened as far as US Beast Wars is concerned.

    So if I understand correctly, Beast Wars follows the US Sunbow cartoon, does it follow also the comics? Cause they never named the ship in the cartoons. So Beast Wars II and Neo follows the Japanese series, so Cybertron is destroyed in that series right? Unless I confused myself. Actually I am going to watch the cartoon and find out.

    BW took elements from the comic but it is more inline with the US cartoon.

    The Headmasters writers did whatever the hell they wanted, and the US made the decision to ignore it.

    Beast Wars doesn't "exactly" follow the US cartoon or the US comic.

    it basically took inspiration from, both.
    as you mention, the autobot ship was never mentioned in the g1 toon, bnut it was in the g1 comic.

    but the design used for the ship [as seen in a flash back in a beast wars episode] wa Arks the design used in the cartoon.The look of the ARK from the comic books was very different.

    also, Beast wars used the name "Teletran 1" for the ships computers, but in the comics, the ships computers name was "Auntie"

    sorry but you are very mis-informed.Its the other way around.

    For seasons 1,2 and 3 ,the Japanese producers of the Transformers toyline, imported the American Transformers cartoon series and dubbed/translated them for the Japanese tv audience from 1985 to 1986. When the series came to an end Takara decided to continue the series themselves.

    They were displeased with Hasbros concept of what a "Headmaster" should be, so they chose not to import the 3 part "The Rebirth" and instead created their own concept of the Headmasters and animated a full-length 35-episode spin-off series.

    so.....The Rebirth writers did whatever the hell they wanted, and the Takara writers/creators made the decision to ignore it.

    Primarily in the UK stories. The computer was called "Aunty" only in US issue #1.

    Literally what you described is Takara ignoring the end of the Transformers property as an original piece and thus yes, they are making up whatever they wanted in the future stuff. Does that mean everything after S3 in Japan was bad? Of course not. But Hasbro ended the series, and Takara chose to continue it. I'm not sure how you see Takara as being the guys not ignoring continuity, here.

    I think he meant the BW guys chose to ignore the japanese stuff.

    how did you come to the conclusion that "I" am saying Takara did not ignore continuity?Continuity wasn't even a issue in my post.And I don't recall saying anything was bad.

    AgentAlabama113 said [paraphrased] The writers of the Japanese/Takara series wrote their stories and the U.S./Hasbro writers chose to ignore it and wrote their own stories.

    that is factually incorrect.The Hasbro writers submitted their concept first, the Japanese writers didn't like it so they made their own.

    Elita 1 wasn't even the first female autobot we saw in the G1 toon.

    Firestar, Moonracer and Chromia were first to appear.

    Continuity wise, in the G1 cartoon, Beta is probably the first female Autobot.
