MEGATRON (Beast Wars)

Primary Function: PREDACON COMMANDER

Motto: “What does not destroy me makes me strong….. What attempts to destroy me is obliterated.”

Alternate Mode: TYRANNOSAURUS REX

BIO
Although the official Predacon government agreed to the pax cybertronia, a dissident underground movement of former generals and warriors continued the struggle to destroy the Maximal Imperium. One of these dissidents was an ambitious Predacon who had assumed the name of Megatron. Intent on finding a way to avenge the Decepticons and Predacons alike, he recruited a small band of like-minded warriors and stole the sacred Golden Disk of Cybertron, which contained a secret message from the original Megatron. This message was intended for his successors should he fail in his bid to conquer the galaxy. While Megatron was successful in stealing the disk, he did not escape unscathed. Shot down by the Maximal science/survey vessel the Axalon, Megatron became embroiled in a struggle on ancient Earth for control of the future. He is arrogant, devious, scheming and treacherous, a master at letting his enemies believe they have the upper hand and then reversing their fortunes. While not every Predacon may respect him, most certainly fear him. Megatron was ultimately defeated by the Maximals when he attempted to take control of the starship Nemesis and failed.

WEAPONS/ABILITIES
Megatron has a powerful intellect and he is an excellent strategist both on and off the battlefield. He is skilled in hand-to-hand combat but often relies on his larger size to overwhelm enemies. Rejecting his initial crocodilian beast form (proposed by his vessel’s onboard systems), he chose instead to take on the form of a fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex. In beast mode, Megatron’s jaws can bite through enemy armor up to four inches thick and then tear out internal circuitry. From his mouth he fires a toxic spray that paralyzes his enemies. In robot mode he has an assortment of weapons at his disposal. His right arm serves as a powerful cannon firing concentrated fusion blasts. His left arm has a claw mounted on it capable of firing missiles or latching onto enemies in melee combat. His hips have dual barrelled blasters on them that fire energised shells that explode on impact.

TRANSMETAL FORM (TYRANNOSAURUS REX)
The Quantum Surge that struck Earth reformatted several Transformers into Transmetals, including Megatron. His beast form remained a Tyrannosaurus Rex, but in a more mechanised form then before. VTOL engines built into his hips allow for flight in beast mode, granting him airspeed of 375 mph. By converting his legs he can roll along on wheels that allow him to move on the ground at speeds up to 200 mph. In robot form he is armed with an energy cutlass that fires blasts of plasma energy and can be used as a whip and gripping weapon. Shoulder cannons allow him to fire destructive energised shells. His VTOL engines are mounted on his back in robot mode, giving him flight capability in that form as well.

TRANSMETAL 2 FORM (DRAGON)
Having seen the fusion of Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal’s spark generate a newer, more powerful form for the Maximal leader, Megatron took the spark of his Decepticon namesake into his own body. After being thrown into a volcano, he emerged in a new, more powerful body. Unfortunately this forced fusion has caused emotional instability in the Predacon commander, causing him to occasionally fly into fits of destructive rage. Megatron’s beast mode is now a dragon that can fly at speeds of up to 500 mph. From his maw he can fire flames 1,000 times hotter than burning oil or switch to a chemical compound that encases its targets in blocks of ice. His tail fires electrostatic energy and can be used as a capture claw to capture enemies. All his beast mode capabilities are available to him in robot mode where he also possesses a head mounted missile launcher. His ground-speeder mode has a maximum speed of 300 mph and retains the combat abilities of his beast mode.

WEAKNESSES
Megatron’s arrogance is his greatest weakness.



@Commander Megatron: Happy to do it, CM.
@Rattrap: Will get them done soon as possible.

OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Primary Function: MAXIMAL COMMANDER

Motto: “Peace is the absence of conflict and the presence of justice.”

Alternate Form: GORILLA

BIO
Originally just one of dozens of starship captains in the Maximal fleet, Optimus Primal’s true calling was destined to be far more significant than merely trawling deep space exploration lanes. When the Predacon Megatron stole the sacred Golden Disk, Optimus and the crew of the Axalon were ordered to stop the renegade. Thrust into the role of military leader, he proved time and time again that he was an effective warrior who also possessed great compassion, loyalty, honour and even a wry sense of humour. Always willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good, Optimus would never give an order that he would be unwilling to carry out himself. To some, his methods may seem unorthodox, but as Optimus once said, “Sometimes crazy works.”

WEAPONS/ABILITIES
Originally, the Axalon’s onboard systems proposed the beast form of a bat with a lightly armed/armoured robot form. However, Optimus Primal immediately realised he would need a more powerful form to combat Megatron so he opted for the form of a gorilla. In beast mode his techno-organic fused musculature provides him with amazing strength and remarkable dexterity. During the course of the battles on Earth, Optimus integrated the instincts of this form with his higher programming, allowing him to maximise his effectiveness in beast mode. In robot mode, Optimus Primal is capable of flight via boosters built into his back. His primary weapons are dual barrelled blasters concealed in his arms. He is also equipped with two missile launchers that may be used on the ground or during flight. Optimus carries three melee weapons, twin collapsible swords and a mace with a spiked ball on the end. He is well trained in military tactics and close-quarter combat techniques.

TRANSMETAL FORM (GORILLA)
When the Vok attempted to destroy Earth using the Planetbuster weapon, Optimus Primal stopped the device at the cost of his own life. Using a blank Protoform and Optimus Primal’s Spark, Rhinox combined the two to form a Transmetal body for the Maximal commander. Optimus’ Transmetal beast mode is primarily mechanical in appearance, but he remains a techno-organic Transformer. The metal plating in beast mode allows him to withstand intense bursts of firepower. In robot mode, Optimus is armed with a handgun that fires bursts of explosive energy. From his back, he can engage a machine gun weapon that folds out in front of him. The twin cannons unleash a volley of energy bullets at a rate of 800 rounds per minute. His melee weapons are twin mace weapons made of a special alloy that allows them to deflect enemy fire. Optimus’ intermediate form is a flight mode consisting of his beast form on a hover board. He can travel at speeds up to 400 mph in this form and carry a passenger if necessary.

OPTIMAL OPTIMUS FORM
In order to save the life of Optimus Prime, Primal took the Autobot leader’s Spark within his own body while Rhinox repaired the damage done by Megatron. The sheer power of the Spark mutated Primal’s body into a larger, more powerful form that was dubbed “Optimal Optimus.” Now a quad-former, Optimus had the ability to transform into a robot, gorilla, armoured-ground assault vehicle and hypersonic jet. In robot mode Optimus’ physical strength is unmatched by any of the Maximals. His chest opens to reveal two smart reactive missile launchers capable of targeting enemies independent of Optimus’ control. He is also armed with a rifle that can switch between rapid fire and concentrated burst modes. In beast mode, Optimus employs blast shields mounted on his arms. His hypersonic jet mode utilises Cybertronian “air guardian” technology, allowing him to reach speeds up to Mach 4.2. In ground assault mode, Optimus is able to traverse most terrain and has a Maximum speed of 275 mph. There are hints that aspects of Optimus Prime’s personality may have influenced Optimus Primal during their time sharing one body.

WEAKNESSES
Optimus Primal’s sense of compassion can be used against him.

CHEETOR

Primary Function: JUNGLE PATROL

Motto: “They can’t beat the best.”

Alternate Form: CHEETAH

BIO
The youngest member of the Axalon crew, Cheetor was always impulsive and eager for adventure. While he admired his comrades, he often felt that they underestimated him and did not give him the credit he believed he deserved. This often drove him to try to prove himself even more to those he admires. In particular he looks up to Optimus Primal whom he refers to as “Big Bot.” Cheetor contributed some of his own circuitry to save Airazor, and they share a sibling relationship as a consequence.

WEAPONS/ABILITIES
Cheetor possesses the fastest land speed of all the Maximals. Athletic and agile, he is a difficult target to hit. He is armed with two primary weapons: his Quasar cannon, which fires bursts of explosive energy, and his tail section, which transforms into a high powered rifle that fires concentrated laser beams. Some of Cheetor’s dreams have suggested that he may possess some type of innate precognitive ability.

TRANSMETAL FORM
Following the Quantum Surge that struck Earth, Cheetor’s body evolved into a Transmetal form. With this form came new weapons including a bladed whip and Quasar blasters built into his hands. He also gained a third arrack configuration: a flying cheetah mode utilising rocket boosters mounted on either side of his mid-section.

TRANSMETAL 2 FORM
After an accident involving the Transmetal 2 driver, Cheetor’s body mutated into a new form. The rocket pack mounted on his back in beast mode allows him to travel up to speeds of Mach 2 and his primary weapon is a rocket launcher. Cheetor’s metamorphosis also involved an emotional maturing on Cheetor’s part. No longer the young kid among the Maximals, his persona changed to that of a rebellious teenager.

WEAKNESSES
His impulsiveness often leads Cheetor to bite off more than he can chew.

RATTRAP

Primary Function: SPY

Motto: “Be a straight shooter and your friends and enemies will respect ya.”

Alternate Form: RAT

BIO
If any Maximal is a study in contrast, it is Rattrap. On the surface he is a whiner, whose first instinct is to object to any and all orders given by Optimus Primal. His biting humour and attitude gives the impression that he likes very few Maximals other than himself. In reality, though, his bitter and sarcastic sense of humour is his way of dealing with a war that he never asked to be involved in. Those who know Rattrap understand this and choose to focus on his strengths. Rattrap is extremely resourceful, cunning and brave. He is loyal to his comrades and uncompromising in principles.

WEAPONS/ABILITIES
Rattrap is an expert in reconnaissance and espionage. He is highly intelligent and has shown great leadership potential. In beast mode, his small size allows him to slip in and out of most enemy installations undetected. In robot mode, Rattrap carries an array of devices to aid him in his missions including time-delay bombs in his wrist compartments. His primary weapon is a rifle that can be switched to unleash rapid-fire bursts of artillery or emit concentrated blasts of energy.

TRANSMETAL FORM
After being hit by the Quantum Surge that followed the destruction of the Planetbuster, Rattrap’s body was changed dramatically. His beast mode became a mechanical rat with teeth that can chew through metal. In his techno-organic robot form he gained and extra weapon, a bladed whip formed from his tail. His newly acquired vehicular mode is a dragster with a top speed of 160 mph. If necessary, he can use his hubcaps as shields in robot mode.

WEAKNESSES
Rattrap’s whining sometimes irritates other Maximals to the point where they turn on him.

No problem CM, and don't worry about what Snarlock says, technically it wasn't your defeat.

RHINOX

Primary Function: STRATEGIC DEFENCE

Motto: “Power in defence of freedom will always triumph over power used for evil.”

Alternate Form: RHINOCEROS

BIO
Looking upon the hulking visage of Rhinox, it would be easy to dismiss him as a mindless brute whose only contribution to a battle is sheer physical strength. However those who know him understand that Rhinox is far more than just muscle. He performs a variety of functions on the Axalon including engineer, defence specialist and science officer. His ability to create new devices with minimal equipment has proven crucial during the conflict with Megatron’s Predacons. Rhinox is compassionate, patient and firm, all qualities that would make him an inspired leader if it were his inclination. He has a great sense of humour that makes his comrades feel comfortable around him. Despite his amicable nature, Rhinox does have a warrior spirit, and if pushed will not stop fighting until either he or his foe have fallen.

WEAPONS/ABILITIES
Rhinox’s strength is immense, putting him on par with Megatron. He is highly skilled in mechanics and programming. His speciality is designing defence systems. It was Rhinox who was charged with adapting the standard Maximal defence system to suit the needs of the grounded Axalon. In his rhinoceros mode he can run up to 60 mph. This speed and his multi-ton weight make him a virtually unstoppable force. In robot mode, Rhinox’s style is that of a brawler. His moves have little elegance, meant only to inflict maximum damage with minimal movement. He is armed with a powerful machine gun with a rate of fire of 1,000 rounds per minute. Some have dubbed this weapon his “Chain Gun of Doom” after its devastating effects.

TRANSMETAL FORM
Long after the conflict on Earth, the Vok gathered Rhinox’s spark from the Matrix, equipping him with a new body. He was sent to various timelines to help fight the chaos instigated by Unicron’s many incarnations. However, the Vok’s true intent was to use Rhinox as a catalyst in their efforts to manipulate Cybertronian history. Rhinox is aware of this and does not fully trust his benefactors. However, the guilt he feels over his actions (as Tankor) immediately prior to the reformatting of Cybertron means he now strives to help Autobots, Maximals and Cybertronians wherever (and whenever) he can. His Transmetal beast form allows him extra agility and speed, and a third transform has been added to his repertoire, a treaded ATV with a top speed of 100 mph. In robot form his reflexes have been enhanced by the fusion of his organic musculature with specially designed reactive circuitry. His new weapon is a serrated blade that he can use in close-quarters combat or charge up to fire bolts of lightning.

WEAKNESSES
Rhinox is neither fast nor agile.

If any of you are skilled with a PC and know how to use FTP, I'd be willing to upload them to my FTP and allow you to DL them instead of sending snail mail.

If you don't know how to use it and you would rather not learn, I can make other arraingments for you to dl them..

If you want to learn, I'd be glad to post up a small walkthrough with detailed pictures.
