What's with all the beast characters being guardians all of a sudden. First Primal in the machinima stuff and now Cheetor here.

It's a message to all the GEEWUNNERS who still hate Beast Wars based on the 10-30 seconds they saw of the cartoon:

"WE saved the entire Transformers franchise at the midpoint of the 2 decades YOU decided to stop caring, and therefore earned the honor of guarding its heart and soul for all eternity! If that's a problem for you, then BEGONE! Again."

Hey, I can only call 'em as I see 'em. Anyone with a less divisive read, please chime in.

Motto: "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings to randomly click things in the Admin Panel to see what it breaks."
Plot twist - Only Primal returned to Cybertron, though at a prehistoric time, upon arriving he takes up guard duty. The rest (well Cheetor at least) stayed on Earth and he eventually took up guarding the AllSpark.

Or it's just random.

You know, I don't know if you're joking or not, but here's some interesting (by standards) ramblings.

Most of us "GEEWUNNERS" were still in school or college when G1 died in the butt. We had little or no disposable income. The internet was in it's early days and bulletin boards regarding TF's were few and far between.

So they tried something new, they appealed to a new, younger audience and went back to fleecing parents.

Once Hasbro realised "GEEWUNNERS" had disposable income, their focus swung back to G1.

Hey guess who has disposable income now? Beast Wars fans! So don't flatter yourself, Hasbro are just seeing you as cash cows, like those mean GEEWUNNERS that upset you so. You're just a statistic like the rest of us now.

P.S. I liked Beast Wars and Beast Machines and have a near complete collection of both. Oh and I'm one of those "GEEWUNNERS", so maybe don't be so quick to generalise hey?

I dont think is fair to expect kids that were growing up and interested in various other things in their teenage years that they stopped caring for transformers. The truth is Hasbro stopped making the brand relevant to new fans until Beast Wars came around.

It was a dumb joke that seemed funnier when I was tired and under the weather last night. Sorry if that was actually offensive.

What would be hilarious is if the next ancient guardian in this trend turned out to be Rattrap.

And to think that the Dinobots of AOE were originally going to be the "Guardians of the AllSpark" in the movies before it was decided to instead make them some sort of legendary knights.

I think it is more just to get BW characters used again. The same could be said for IDW, [Jerry Seinfeld voice] What's with all the BW characters working for Unicron?? ;)

Speaking of IDW

Something else IDW failed to deliver on in the end. Though I was labeled as "boring and cliche'" for wanting Op & Megs in a final fight to end IDW, well, at least this show as that going for it.

A megs and op fight wouldn't have made sense in IDW at that point. Cyberverse is going fir a mixed approach with megs, keeping him in the vein of evil but giving him a relatable start. Personally I tired of having prime vs megs, it's very played out but I'm willing to give new things a go if it promises a different take. It's my approach with the new IDW reboot as well.
