Waspinator's beast mode is a female wasp. This was perhaps a deliberate decision, as the female wasp carries a stinger that serves as an effective weapon, and such a mode would fit the male (and continually put-upon) Waspinator. See more »

[after Tarantulas takes Blackarachnia in to a choke hold]
You? What are you doing here?
You have some information I need.
Yes. Let's hear it.
Okay, Tarantulas, here's the scoop. Megatron is a slag-sucking saurian. Got it?
Hmm? She'll pay for that one.

I remember I first saw this serial in Poland, where I was working in 2000-2001, and then I got hooked on it, and started to watch every episode in the morning or daytime, before or after my classes. It really did catch me! I was enthralled and marveled. Before that, I had hated to see any of the original Tranformers Series, but Beast Wars is a huge step forward, a real progress and areal improvement. What is bad there is a second-rate computer graphics, it is at its best naive or even extremely poor, and you see all the obvious mistakes, the goofs with the position of this or that hero in the given place, his or her coloration or the odd design of the background. Never mind, the plot is breathless. The incessant war between good and band animals, Maximals and Predagons, is very real, and you see not a gorilla, not a wasp, a rat, an eagle or a cheetah, but real people beside, behind, inside them, with their real problems, characters, tragedies and even very cute humor. The Rat one is the best, a cunning little cowardly creature, very lovable and sweet. And what a romance story in the second season! I re-watched the whole serial here in Russia and still am a great fan of it. Watch it!
