None of the villain characters in the show walk normally. Jetstorm and Obsidian lack legs entirely and always hover, Thrust balances on one wheel, Tankor rolls on caterpillar tracks built into his feet, Strika hover-skates, the diagnostic drone likewise lacks legs and instead flies, and Megatron is supported by cables within his citadel and only rarely reaches down to the floor. However, Megatron does walk with normal feet in some of the other bodies he temporarily uses. See more »
Megatron's virus reverts the Maximals into their original bodies from the first season of Beast Wars: Transformers. However, Optimus Primal should technically be in his Transmetal design from season 2, since his original body was destroyed and his Spark was placed in a new body. The virus couldn't have devolved him further than his Transmetal form, because that was his new body's original form. See more »
To anyone out there who love Beast Wars as a child and wanted to see how their story continue,the follow-up,Beast Machines,gave us the opportunity to see their adventures unfold.
Beast Machines takes place after Beast Wars ended.The Maximals are returning home to Cybertron.However,when they get there,they discover they have reverted back to their original forms from Season 1 of Beast Wars,they can't transform,and they have no memory of why they are unable to do so.Not only that,but Rhinox and Silverbolt are no where to be found.Thankfully,Optimus is being assisted by the planet's computer,The Oracle,and they eventually find where she is residing.To help them transform and to prevent stasis lock(shutdown,basically),she gives them new techno-organic bodies(half beast/half mechanical),which means practicing a new form of transforming is required.Optimus,Cheetor,Rattrap,and Blackarachnia discover that Megatron actually managed to take over the entire planet and stole the Sparks from every single Transfomer and has store them away from Optimus and the others.He has also managed to utilize the Sparks of Waspinator,Rhinox,and Silverbolt and make them the generals of his drone armies:Jetstorm(Jet)-Silverbolt,Tankor(tank)-Rhinox,and Thrust(motorcycle)-Waspinator.The Maximals(along with Silverbolt(eagle),who returns in season two,Nightscream(bat,male),and Botancia(Venus Fly-Trap,female) must now save their friends and reclaim the planet.Optimus also discovers that Cybertron has an organic core and now he must find a way to restore life to Cybertron.
I like this series a lot more than Beast Wars,as I stated before.In fact,it may be my favorite series of all time.Why? It is so interesting.The characters have so much dimension,the storyline is fantastic,the action scenes rule,and the philosophical depth is so spectacular. It actually makes you think. Such a great series.You can find it on DVD. I really hope you enjoy it.It doesn't exactly fit into the continuity,but just think of it as a loose sequel to Beast Wars and you won't have a problem.
