Leaving us with a decidedly shocking cliffhanger in End Of The Line in season 1, the series opener continues without missing a beat. With Megatron tricked by the spark of Rhinox (now free inside Tankor's body) into utilising the Key To Vector Sigma, Optimus Primal responds by unleashing the plasma energy core of the planet to stop him.
The other Maximals, infected by the Key program look set to go offline for good and the fate of the world hangs in the balance as Megatron and Primal fight to the bitter end.
With a great resolution to the story, the series progresses through 12 more episodes which leave us uncertain as to the fate of some of the characters. The show moves along with a rapid pace as the remaining Maximals seek to discover what Megatron did with the Sparks of the other Transformers and to free them before they join the Matrix forever.
The series moves into mini-arc territory with three parters including the amazing Sparkwar and the final Endgame trilogy.
The CGI is even better than series one and there are some brilliant twists and turns in the story. The revelation about the Sparks is shocking and the return of some characters from Beast Wars make welcome additions to the show. All that and a new alien lifeform reaches Cybertron in it's most desperate hour.
The Endgame saga is epic in the plotting and gives a hugely enjoyable and satifactory end to the Transfomer history and the final battles between certain characters does not disappoint.
So, if you love Transformers or have just enjoyed series 1, the don't hesitate to plough into another 13 episodes of action and adventure.
Transform and roll out!
Along the way the stories touch on loyalty and love, on resentment and sacrifice. It's the sort of stuff that reminds you how you can possibly get hooked on the adventures of giant robots that transform into other stuff. It's nicely epic and introduces exciting ideas to the Transformers mythology while referencing the past, for those of us with long memories (the hate plague from the Return of Optimus Prime, anyone?).
Okay, the CGI is not up as good as Toy Story, but it is still quite impressive and gives the different, sometimes startling designs of the transformers real character. I particularly love the designs on Silverbolt and Botanica.
The shame is, there seems so much more that could be done with the characters beyond the end of this series. I think this is well worth buying.
Beast Machines is the continuing story of Beast Wars, the Maximals have won and they end back to Cybertron with Megatron strapped to their ship. He gets free however and proceeds to change history - He wins.
This is the second season box set of Beast Machines, the first season was slow at points, but remarkable with gripping stories and a very different take on the good and bad, the bad guys win from the start!
As the series progresses in season 1, we see the Maximals learn how to control their transformtions and their inner animal so that they can fight back against Megatron and his Vehicons. At the end of season 1, we were left with a cliff hanger.
Enter season 2 and things seem a lot slower, I won't explain why, but there's a good reason for it and it all comes to a head near the end. We are introduced to new characters and getting to see how cunning Megatron can be when backed into a corner.
I would recommend this for sure, for adults and kids alike. It's a smart cartoon, which is surprising, and brings the whole Generation One/Beast Wars story arch to a fitting end.
Enjoy, it's as gripping as the first season and worth every penny.
Some die-hard Transformers fans viewed Beast Machines as the `bad thing' when comparing it to the prequel series Beast Wars, as well as Generation 1. Drastic character changes and the whole challenging concept of Cybertron once being an organic planet (and could be so again) drew the show a lot of backlash. And that only continued with this season as the radical changes and organic concepts further developed...and skyrocketed to an epic conclusion.
But for me, personally, all the daring new concepts excited me. While I agree whole-heartedly that Beast Wars was the superior series, Beast Machines nonetheless remained expertly written and animated, sporting a real dark and mature feel to it, great characters and ties to Generation 1 that made for fantastic story-arcs, such as use of the Key to Vector Sigma and the Plasma Energy Chamber.
Those who watched the first season of Beast Machines will remember the epic cliffhanger in the final episode "End of the Line", where Optimus Primal and Megatron unleashed the full furies of the Plasma Energy Chamber and the Key to Vector Sigma, creating a worldwide maelstrom that threatened to destroy all Transformers along with their planet. The first episode here in this box set, "Fallout", gets right into the thick of the action as Optimus must confront his sins while save his homeworld at the same time.Read more ›
