Brace yourself to relive some of the most epic TRANSFORMERS battles and non-stop action adventures through the 15th Anniversary release of BEAST WARS. In 1996, TRANSFORMERS fans were introduced to this stunning saga between the heroic MAXIMALS and the evil PREDACONS where these powerful TRANSFORMERS disguised themselves as some of the fiercest and most ferocious animals on Earth. In a flash of an instant, these beasts turned into battle-tested robot warriors ready for combat. Created by Hasbro and produced by Mainframe Entertainment, the hugely successful animated series TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS ran for three successful television seasons and garnered an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation.

When I saw this was being released, I knew I had to get a preview copy! My little one has been watching Transformers Prime, and Transformers Armada non-stop these past few weeks. I thought he would love this with transforming dinosaurs, another favorite around here. Well, after a few minutes he said that it was scary and didn’t want to watch it. But I did get him to watch it again with his older brothers. My seven year old loved Transformers a few years ago but wasn’t that impressed with this one just because it didn’t look like the “real” transformers or the ones he was used to seeing. My 11-year-old liked Optimus which turns into a Gorilla. He couldn’t believe that the show was older than he is. In his words, “this show is pretty awesome.”
