Because characters like waspinator didn't become smaller.
The beast wars characters were smaller not because of the forms they scanned, but becasue they didn't have to use as much energon as the big guys. I think they even stated that in the show. That as the war went on the bots were designed and made smaller. So they can use as much energon as possible. Unlike the old G1 bots. How used alot more than they did.
