    Okay so I want to say that both Optimus Primal and Megatron down sized from their previous versions, and I’m guessing alot of beast wars fans who got the new transmetal figures swapped them back for the old ultra class figures with more weapons and the size these guys deserve. I know Transmetal Megatron took a backseat to Rampage when the king crab came out, and I am guessing this figure did the same when Depth Charge was released. All things considered this figure brings to bear more weapons than his nemesis, but 1/3rd the weapons of the first Gorrilla Primal had. The beast mode and robot modes are pretty much the same, you just reverse him, I don’t know why they bothered making two different hands to be honest. His gun platform is functional, and in robot mode you can bring his back plate to cover his chest and mount the maces on there like boob cannons, you gotta love that, and if you squint real hard when you look at him like that, you can see where the optimal optimus chest cannon inspiration came from maybe. In beast mode his gorrilla/robot legs become a surf board, and his gun, which looks like a hair dryer, becomes the thruster for the surfing mode. But with his maces you would be in for a hell of an air joust with him. If you want my fav configuration for him, its his transmetal chest in beast mode, but with his legs down and his robot head out instead, maces facing up, trust me. If you want a good figure, get the origional Gorrilla or the Optimal Optimus version, you can skip this one and not lose sleep.

    Beast Wars: The Saga Begins, January 22, 2002
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Beast Wars – Transformers (DVD)
    Beast Wars debuted in 1996 as a new take on the classic Transformers show from the 80s. The re-vamped toyline became a hit, and the show was even better. Audiences soon learned that not only did BW tie in with the original Transformers, in many ways, it was a continuation of it.
    These episodes are a great intro, and a must in order to get the entire epic story of Beast Wars. The show really hits its stride towards the end of the first season, and I can still remember how excited I was through pretty much all of the second season. Do not make the mistake of writing this show off as standard kiddie fare, it was one of the best written “cartoons” I’ve ever watched, a true science fiction saga. Credit for this goes to the series’ two excellent story editors: Bob Forward and Larry DiTillio. They breathed a life into these transforming robots the like of which Transformer fans had never seen (let’s face it, the original TF characters were somewhat one and two dimensional). So, there you have it: characterization, plot, script, visuals, all of these and more are reasons not to miss a single volume of this, the best Transformers has to offer, finally on DVD.

    Being a cartoon, this show starts out with a lot of stigmas. I loved the original transformers as a kid. This show was unbelievable. Yes, it was all about selling toys but the creators weren’t just satisfied with that alone. The story telling is weaven together better than most primetime television shows. There are very few holes. I dare you not to feel a little teery eyed when Dinobot hits the dust. One of the saddest deaths I’ve seen on the tube. Oh and Austria stop blasting the show. You have obviously not seen the show and are just a cranky Transformers fan that wont give this new show any respect. Those are the only people that do not like this show. Those that haven’t seen it and dismiss it as nothing but a stupid cartoon. Then, there’s the original Transformers fans that can’t accept this show being better and never give it a chance. If you watch this show from the beginning you will be addicted, I guarantee you. Although as said the show really hits it’s mark in season 2 with a lot of drama. Season 1 is a lot of introduction. Season 3 is the payoff with the bots heading back home, very good season. Season 4 is a bit of a mess in auto world but it’s entertaining. There wasn’t anywhere else to go after season 4. It was a fun ride. I give it a 4 but for cartoons this is definitely a big 5 stars.

    Volume 1 is Volumes 1&2 – Sort of, February 22, 2002
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Beast Wars – Transformers (DVD)
    >The buy info is wrong though, this is ONLY Volume 1. It contains 6 episodes
    The buy info isn’t wrong, it’s just a little confusing. In the VHS versions volume 1 is the first three episodes, volume 2 is the second three episodes. Someone in marketing decided that it would be less confusing to label volume 1 of the DVD series volumes 1 & 2 so that people would know that it includes all six episodes.
    Besides this contorted piece of logic, this is a great DVD. I look forward to Rhino releasing the rest of the series!
