When Fox Kids first put out an early description for the show as a part of its sneak-peek at 1999's fall programming, it featured a wholely different take on the basic cartoon outline, as well as some unfinished character designs. The description promised a story-telling very similar to that of its prequel, Beast Wars: Transformers (1996), with the two opposing factions being the Maximals and Predacons. The completed show differed quite a bit from this: for one, the Maximals faced off against Vehicons, and the ever-present humor of its predecessor was diminished considerably. See more »
When Nightscream offers fruit to the Maximals, Cheetor matter-of-factly states that they only consume Energon, but Optimus suggests that their Technorganic bodies may be able to consume regular food too. However in the previous series, Beast Wars: Transformers, the characters were shown eating fruit and meat a number of times. See more »
Much like in the case of its predecessor, Beast Wars: Transformers, the Japanese version of this show is a comically over-the-top parody, the exact opposite of the serious and somber tone of the original. The recurring characters retained their individual quirks, including the Vehicon Generals, whose identity was kept a mystery in the original version. These comical traits were driven to the point of insanity, with many characters constantly yelling their trademark catchphrases to break up the silence. The new characters also received their own unique personality changes -- most notably, Nightscream was turned into a flaming gay stereotype as an homage to a Japanese comedian who was popular at the time.

This is what happens when writers stop caring they mess up a good thing.BEAST WARS ruled when the predicons and the maximals transformed they actully transformed now they morph.The story lines lack originality and soul.When continuing a saga you have to be true to you and to your viewers sometimes it pays to listen to yourself not some corporate yes man.Beast Machines is a musn't see.
