    I'm asking because I would like to see the Rock Lords return in fiction in some form, just like how the GoBots are showing up in the Transformers comics and Netflix series, I was thinking Beast Wars would be the best place to have the Rock Lords because it would be easier for them to hide in the type of locations in Beast Wars vs locations from G1, also a normal looking rocks would fit more with normal looking animals then with robotic animals and vehicles.

    But that's what I think, what do you guys think?

    Well I just thought the Rock Lords would fit better in Beast Wars.

    Yeah, why not. That's a great idea!

    It would work well with Beast Wars on prehistoric Earth rather than present day. Yes, rocks still exist now (and in the 80's where rock was at it's best) but there are better things to scan now if you don't want to be a vehicle - which is where Botbots come in.

    I think rock-like Transformers should be pretenders.

    I have had this idea for ogre a decade that there should be Transformers disguised as ancient or medieval stone buildings, and that these Transformers use Pretender technology to visually disguise their robotic and advanced technological nature and silently protect certain strategic points on Earth. Imagine an ancient Autobot disguised as an old castle or monastery transforming to fight Decpeticons in the present day! That could be utterly Shrektastic!

    could make an interesting sub species of transformers. kind of hard to imagine why they'd pick a rock as an alt mode over a jet or futuristic race car. Unless it was for stealth reasons.

    Yeah a boulder doesn't stick out like a sore thumb in prehistoric Earth, but it would in present day Earth.

    Why would there be a jet or futuristic car in Beast Wars?

    So if Rock Lords were in Beast Wars they would scan minerals instead of DNA right?

    I could see some potential in Rock Lords being tied into Beast Wars. Off the top of my head, I can see them as potential caretakers put in place by the Vok to make sure their experiment with early earth would continue untouched from outside interference until two Cybertronian craft crash land and start tainting the experiment and thus forcing the rock lords to take action.

    I would be find with that idea as long as they aren't just mindless drones/creatures.

    In my idea, they are sentient but they blindly worship and follow the Vok's orders including overseeing their planet experiment. But then when the Vok consider Earth a failed experiment and activate the planet buster, the rock lords are cut off from their influence. Then as time goes on, some start to think for themselves. One group follow the Maximals example while the other group feels like they need to stick with the Vok's path and try to regain their favor and want nothing to do with Maximals, Predacons.
