Favorite moment of Megatron? When he finally appears to win by breaking into the ark, powering up his gun, and shooting the original Optimus Prime's head off.

That was bold story telling and had me seriously wondering what the hell was going to happen next.

My favorite scene involving Optimus Primal or Megatron from the Beast Wars cartoon would have had to have been when it was revealed that the entire reason the Beast Wars happened in the first place was because of a sinister plot set up by the original Megatron that the BW Megatron took accomplish. That realization of the story blew me away!

I'm not really into winning any art from this, so I'll just leave a comment about this comic itself:

I could see this relating to the Power of the Primes vote that elected Optimus Primal as the next Prime.

To pick just one moment from the perfection known as Beast Wars is near impossible.....there is just so many priceless moments to choose from.
Perhaps when Megatron :PREDACON: emerges from the lava to revel his new dragon mode.....YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

Oh enjoyable mini-comic BTW, that last line......awesome!!! :APPLAUSE:

Font looks a lot like comic sans, which I'm pretty sure it is. Thankfully, not everyone's talking in pure gibberish, although Perceptor's usage of "bought" in place of "brought" peeves me a little since I remember him being a pretty smart guy.

The artwork could also use some work. Star Saber looks like he just ate a massive burrito, and Grimlock and Razor look like they're just casually playing a game of pirates.

No mention of where the other two pages can be found, unlike the other two who both mentioned this site and each other by name.

Actually, we have no problem mentioning the other sites.

What REALLY happened is that we were contacted by SpaceApe who made the request. Their plan was for people to hunt across the various sites (Easter Egg Hunt style) to find the various pieces.

Once the request was made, things were edited accordingly.

Not exactly a great plan, nor was it clearly conveyed, but hey, they tried.

About time, they've dragged it out for long enough.

Whatever happened to Hun-Grrr and "whoever-the-hell-cares" they had slated for the Autobots?

Assuming this is an alliance event based on the points on the prize board, even though it doesn't say anything about needing to be in an alliance to participate.

Transformers: Earth Wars Unleashes Prehistoric Power in New Beast Wars Saga Update As New Playable Bots Arrive to Game, Including Optimus Primal and Megatron T-Rex

Real-time combat strategy mobile game Transformers: Earth Wars rolled out its Beast Wars update earlier this month featuring a series of new characters and events, and today marks the official arrival of Optimus Primal and Megatron T-Rex as playable characters. The Beast Wars story centers around Grimlock, who decides to bring Transformers back from the future. Grimlock gets it wrong and brings characters from the past -- Beast Wars characters! Players who are HQ Level 4 and up can unlock this story through weekly events, and by leveling up their characters.



Transformers: Earth Wars is published by Backflip Studios (DragonVale, Ninjump, Paper Toss) and developed by Space Ape Games (Rival Kingdoms, Samurai Siege). The app brings the excitement of the battle between Autobots and Decepticons to mobile devices with fast-paced gameplay and beautiful 3D animation, allowing the characters to attack, battle, and transform right before a player’s eyes. Using authentic storytellers and voice actors from the original franchise, Transformers: Earth Wars enables players to interact with other Transformers fans, as well as millions of people around the world who enjoy real-time combat strategy games.

Transformers: Earth Wars is free and available to download today for iOS and Android mobile devices. The new Beast Wars update is accessible to players who have hit HQ Level 4 and above. For more information, visit TransformersEarthWars.com.



Dinobot Grimlock

Image

A rampaging force of nature, Grimlock is the most feared and powerful of the Dinobots, as irascible and savage as the T-Rex his beast mode is modelled on. Combat is in Grimlock's spark, and periods in between battles are simply periods of great frustration and seething resentment. Any display of weakness is worthy only of contempt in Grimlock's optics, but he's not as dumb as he likes people to think, and his courage on the battlefield is the stuff of legend.


Dinobot Slug

Image

Considering he's one of the good 'bots, Slug is as nasty and mean-spirited as they come, and resents everyone from Optimus Prime down. The actual process it takes to build up a fiery (3,000 degrees centigrade plus) blast and reduce an enemy to molten slag is hardly energy-efficient, but he doesn't care. It's firepower well spent in his book. As he often says, "I have no need for friends, even less for enemies."


Dinobot Slog

Image

Despite his plodding, lumbering gait and bulldozer-like approach to anything in his way, Slog is a gentle and even shy 'bot at heart. But conscious of his bellicose fellow Dinobots, and wary of their scorn, he keeps his sensitive side hidden. Slog's seismic footfalls have been known to cause inadvertent landslides, which sometimes bury Slog and anyone nearby, making others dismiss him as clumsy and accident prone.


Dinobot Snarl

Image

Surly and uncommunicative, a loner by nature, Snarl is about as far from a team player as you can get. But in a group comprised of misfits and malcontents, he somehow fits right in. And though he follows orders (grudgingly), what keeps him in line is the promise of mortal combat — and lashings of it. Only the thrill of battle can truly elevate Snarl's spirits and being a Dinobot provides everything his heart desires.


Dinobot Snarl

Image

In army lingo, Snarl is a grunt. Not just because he's infantry, specializing in desert warfare, obediently if grudgingly following the orders of his commanding officer, but because he's a 'bot of few words and fewer opinions, and the most you can get out of him is the odd grunt. A loner by nature, uncommunicative and surly, Snarl only comes to life in the heat of battle, alongside his fellow Dinobots."

Why is Swoop also Snarl? That'd be confusing.

"Snarl! Go!"
"Me Snarl?"
"Or me Snarl?"

And Swoop/SnarlII's bio leaves out his amiability, which I feel is the character's defining trait. In a group of brutish heavy hitters, he's the closest one to downright friendly.

Those... actually appear to be two legitimate Snarl Bios. Huh.

Additionally, the three Dinobot name changes brought about recently actually kind of make some sense:
Slug, as in slow, or a large shotgun round. Crude and powerful. (Admittedly, Slag works better here)
Slog, as in a powerful hit (What significance did Sludge have, anyways?)
Strafe is much more in line with the tone of the other names than Swoop was (Although Swoop is different from the other Dinobots, being friendly and not-a-dinosaur. Also, Strafe is a Technobot.)

I believe in the original comics, Swoop was given a backstory where his original name was Divebomb, a name later stolen by the Predacon, and he took up 'Swoop' as a replacement.

Yep. Good story too. Really gave those two a bit of character and established a history between them.
