Beast Wars sketches by KaijuSamurai Beast Wars sketches by KaijuSamurai
BEAST WARS *growling and guitar riffs*
Found out recently that BW was partially inspired by Bio Boosted Armor GUYVER, so I started sketching the OG toys with more organic, gross bits and beast-like qualities. Also those weird Beast-Mask-things.
Lemme know if you wanna see more!
Completely coincidentally, I just found out that today, April 22nd, is the 20th anniversary of BEAST WARS! Though Hasbro seems completely uninterested in celebrating the anniversary (word has it that the current brand managers weren’t even aware of Beast Wars and had to have the fans explain what it was) I plan to make a lot more BW art in the future. My hope is, in the eyes of the TF fandom, that I can brute-force my way into becoming “The Beast Wars guy.”
Happy Beasties Day!

They really should bring BW back somehow. I get tired of the endless versions of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, etc.

Always wondered what was with those weird masks, and helmets the toys had back then. Guess Hasbro wanted to add some other element to the Transformers aside from the animal aspects. But either way, this is truly amazing. As a die hard transformers fan, i really, REALLY like this. Kinda makes me wish there could have been an animated version of it with you as the artist. That would be so great.:D

Dinobot was my first Beast Wars toy and favorite character in the show.

I still have it somewhere, although he has seen better days...
