Dinobot turns into a scaly, featherless velociraptor, yet these dinosaurs were covered in feathers. This can't be considered an error, though: at the time the show was made, the general belief was that raptors were scaly saurians (a common perception of dinosaurs); the toy that Dinobot's character was meant to promote also had scales. (While it can be argued that feathers were impossible to animate back then, other characters also had feathers, so this can't be considered a reason as to why Dinobot didn't have them.) See more »
At one point, it is hinted at that Dinobot's beast mode is a Velociraptor. Although he does resemble the genetically engineered "Velociraptors" from Jurassic Park, he barely looks like a real-life Velociraptor. Some of his erroneous features could be attributed to him being a robot, however there are still a number of legitimate errors in his appearance: his skull is the wrong shape, for one. He also lacks feathers, though at the time this series was made, evidence of feathers on Velociraptor had not yet been found. See more »
Beast Wars updated the classic 80s cartoon series and made it CGI. Beast Wars was filled with great stories, an interesting plot that connected it to the 80s cartoon, superb characters and so much more. Also the voices were very good and the characters were so diverse, that contributed to it's greatness.
