    After several years of success with Beast Wars, Hasbro decided that the line had peaked and was due for a change to reinvigorate it. That, or they couldn't leave well enough alone. Opinions may vary. In any case, rather than regular beasts, we started to get two sub-lines...the freaky Fuzors and the robotic Transmetals, which had third "battle" modes that were vehicle-like, but usually not actual vehicles. This split lasted for a couple of waves before Hasbro decided to change everything again....

    It should be noted that almost all of the Deluxe Transmetals from both waves have been re-released as recolored versions. I have not reviewed them, and they tend to be hard to find, shipping in smaller numbers.
