Did You Know?

Galvatron plans to summon Megatron to assist him, but it's not clear which Megatron he wants: the "The Transformers" (1984) Megatron or the "Beast Wars: Transformers" (1996) Megatron. Given the appearance of Optimus Primal from Beast Wars, it's likely he wanted the latter version.See more »

Finally Another Transformers Movie!, 17 December 1999
Author: mrsatan from Earth

Not since 1986 had the Transformers hit the movie screens. But after 12 years, they're back! And it's about time! The movie is composed of three segments, two of which are recycled from the Canadian CG Beast Wars program. The highlight is the original 45 minute cel-animated segment called "Beast Wars Second:Lio Convoy Kiki Ippatsu". It's good to see hand drawn Transformers again, and the animation is light years above that of the Beast Wars Second TV series. The plot is fairly similar to the previous TF movie (Giant Monster Transformer can only be stopped by the Matrix), but it's still a lot of fun to watch! TRANSFORM!!
