BEAST WAAAAAARS

Post by sailorcybertron » Fri Feb 16, 2018 11:09 pm

Where are my munky fans? Whose sexual awakening was triggered by David Kaye's Megatron? Who ships Dinobot/Rattrap? Let's have a Beast Wars appreciation party!

I am here for this party!! Beast Wars was my show growing up-- heck, it was synonymous with Transformers to me for years. To the point that when my grandparents put G1 on for me, I was shocked and appalled, haha.

To answer what were probably hypothetical questions because they bear answering: Beast Wars Megatron is just Best Megatron spelled with too many letters but he didn't awake anything in me, or at least not that I remember-- older me is rather more appreciative. I definitely ship Dinotrap, though I ship Rattrap a lot anyhow and Dinobot with Primal is also good. I was all about Tigatron and Airazor as a kid.

Beast Wars was the first series I watched as it was aired over here - I mostly had random car-boot tapes and toys of the G1 stuff, and completely missed G2 (AFAIK).

I must have only seen the first series though, because I've been re-watching and not a fan of the Transmetals stuff at all.

Rhinox is my fave, and he doesn't get enough love. Megs is amazing, too, but mostly for his hot tub scenes.

I didn't watch BW until 2(?) years ago. What great show! Yeah, the CG is dated AF but it still has charm to it and the characters and story are still ace!

Plus it gave us this lad who is clearly the best!

Dinobot is the best thing that's ever happened to me and the lack of fanfiction about him is criminal, also he and rattrap should have a kid and it should be awkward for everyone involved. God I love Beast Wars

It's almost weird to think of it as dated, even though it very much is, because parts of it still hold up really well. The characters are all so expressive, no one is ever really just standing around and there are some great dynamic shots.

Beast Wars was a show with so much love in every bit of it. I can’t imagine how my childhood would have developed without those three seasons of great television.

LACK of Dinobot fanfiction? Dust just poured out of all my joints. I guess a ton of it must have been lost on like, geocities or whatever and never made its way over to the fab fiction places that still exist.

Just know that ypu would have been in great company in like, 2002.

I was definitely not old enough to peruse such dark corners of the internet while Beast Wars fanfics must have been rife on the internet, or just too clueless to know where to even look. All the better that I didn't!
