Beast Wars, season 1

Posted by:

Whether "Optimus as monkey, NOT truck" excites you or makes your blood boil, the Beast Wars is (IMHO) completely responsible for the rebirth of Transformers from its early '90's dormancy.   On this day as we say goodbye to 2008, we look back to the beginning of ths prominent era in TF history.  Check out the 1996 Transformers Section where you will find links in the left hand "fiction" column to image galleries of each of the 13 episodes of Beast Wars first season!

1 - Beast Wars, Part One

2 - Beast Wars, Part Two
3 - The Web

4 - Equal Measures

5 - Chain of Command

6 - Power Surge

7 - Fallen Comrades

8 - Double Jeopardy

9 - The Probe

10 - Gorilla Warfare

11 - A Better Mousetrap
12 - Victory

13 - Dark Designs

As well as the introduction of fan favorites such as Maximals: Optimus Primal, Cheetor, Rhinox, Rattrap and Dinobot and Predacons: Megatron, Waspinator, Tarantulas, Scorponok and Terrorsaur...  This season also featured the introduction of Blackarachnia and Tigatron.  Enjoy!

Hope everyone had as much fun in 2008 as we did.  Here's to an outstanding 2009!

Being of the g1 era it is only now that I realise the importance of The Beast Wars. When Beast Wars Started I was in high school and Transformers were barely on my radar. Not that I no longer liked them but I had other intrests (girls and Metal). I thought Beast Wars were a terrible idea. Now I hold it in very high regards. G1 will always be my favorite but I can say I do truly love Beast Wars.

Can't wait for Season 1 Part 2.

I wonder why they decided to make seasons 2 and 3 each half as long.

Yo, Perc, when are we going to get some more BW profiles? You have links to a bunch of incomplete pages, when are they going to get done?

My girlfriend found and snagged for me the new Classics Universe Cheetor figure. Beast mode's great, Robot mode's eh, but whatever. Again, when is the new Leo Prime supposed to come out and why haven't we gotten its bio yet?

Leo Prime Release Date: February 2009

Dinobot: January 2009

Look on the newest news post for Leo Prime's bio.

Ditto on what KilledbyDeath said. Except for liking Metal (sorry, man).
Beast Wars was the single reason I took up an interest in Transformers again during my college days. The well written stories, the awesome characters, and the way they tied the story in with G1.

Yah mon. Even the most extreme "G1 purists" must admit that Transformers owes a HUGE debt of gratitude to Beast Wars. In my opinion, without Beast Wars, Transformers would be as popular as He-man and Voltron are today. Botcon certainly would not have the same following. The number and awesomeness of fan made websites (including but certainly *not* limited to, ALL started springing up in the era of Beast Wars. Without Beast Wars, Transformers would not have the following it does and who knows if the LIVE action Bay movies would have been 'green lit' to be be produced... I could go on...

More pages are coming... Dang, I need to finish those of 96 as well as 88, 2008... geez my to do list is endless. But I'll do my best. Happy new year everybody!

Happy new year peeps! Love the screenshots (but was there ever a scene where pre earth Megatron appears?). Anyway I gotta admit,BW was good, especially having numerous memorable personas like Megatron, Dinobot (best character), and tarantulus. It was really well animated. Not my favorite series but I gotta admit it was good.

Beast wars and armada were my favourite series, I've always liked animal transformers more because its unexpected to have an organic object realy be a transformer.

Long live the king of beasts!

I highly recommend if anybody hasn't yet read the Beast Wars comics The Gathering and the Ascending. Great stuff there, and they made Razorbeast one of my favorite characters. Not bad for a basic little figure not in the show.
