Well, this post aged poorly. :(

For real, I'd rather BW characters/concepts got grafted into the new movieverse continuity than attempt to make a "Beast Wars movie". I'd also rather they went with purely mechanical animals as opposed to trying to go with "realistic" alt modes.

Simply put, Beast Wars as it was, could not be replicated today. It would more than likely be bastardised akin to the Japanese dub of Season One, Teen Titans GO!, Thundercats Roar! etc

Better to leave it with it's prestige and respect in place.

I would be very interrested in a Beast Wars movie.I'm already made peace with the fact that, no adaptation is going to be a 100% transition.
If peolpe are wondering how this would fit the previous movies,they already have set a precedent for Transformers fighting in pre-historic times.

We saw the g1 versions of these characters remade time and time again,it would be neat to acknowledge the other versions of the series that have been made over the years

I imagine if the Beast Wars characters are used,their translation for movies will be something along these lines.
I would be okay with that.

:lol:

I'd have thought since the Bumblebee movie, people would embrace a more streamlined design aesthetic. Not over-designed 'skittles-on-a-page just for the sake of it' approach of Bayformers.

For example, don't get me wrong that is a nice image BUT, why does T-Rex Megatron have bat wings on his head?

To re-iterate, the entire idea behind Beast Wars is that it is a legacy series. The evolution of the Cybertronian race.

Image

If this is what the Autobots/Decepticons of Bumblebee look like, it stands to reason their technology will visually appear even simpler in their descendants.

Because of the original toy.

That was a Mutant Mask, still not Bat wings.

Image

This is the closest a Megatron has come to having that in his design and they are still Not Wings. This being in spite of the fact that particular design both transforms into a bat and already has wing kibble as part of his design.

To me the image is more inspired by anime, Guyver in particular, than anything beyond a superficial association with Beast Wars.

Is that one of the robots from the Sonic Saturday morning cartoon show?

I think it's a bit foolhardy to imagine that they'd stick to that level of accuracy regarding bot form. In no way is that saying you can't be optimistic, just make sure you don't get your feelings hurt when reality shows itself (if it ever does, still unlikely we'll get a beast wars movie. All depends on how the next two movies go I reckon)

I'm more hopeful the film doesn't see the light of day. Since it is only being made to cash in on the brand name.

Don't forget as well AllNew, Bee is still supposed to act as prequel to TF 07,so those simpler designs don't end up so simple :lol:

I don't think we're getting the classic storyline on the big screen, which is probably the best outcome. Instead it'll be a movie where robots turn into animals with a title of Beast Wars :lol:

They still say 'prequel' even though it clearly isn't.

It isn't just the "classic" storyline though. It is the entire concept behind the show. To just throw the superficial aspect of it onscreen, without context, would have been like putting in Picard, Sisco & Janeway into Star Trek '09.

Don't give them ideas!

Besides there wasn't anything in Bee that wouldn't have worked in 07, not that the bay films really kept themselves to continuity what with each film making more and more plot holes. It'll be Bee 2 that breaks continuity.

I just to want to stir some discussion in movie forum.
Having an Beast Wars adaptation,doesn't mean they have to squeeze the whole series into movies,because it's not a case of choosing this or nothing at all.

The best case scenario for Beast Wars is the continuation of the Masterpiece Line and anniversary re-releases of the show.

Beast Wars isn't malleable like G1. G1 was so bare bones the only real staples were basically voice overs and visual cues. So it could be redesigned into anything IE Sunbow to Bayformers.

Beast Wars was a product of a different time with a different ethos. Lightning in a bottle. That it would be a mistake for lesser creatives to try to replicate, simply to fleece that brand name for the sake of nostalgia.
