Don't know what you're doing your basis of comparison on, but factually all those are wrong. Beast Wars outsold Transformers. Also in terms of "derivative" episodes, I mean that's pretty much every episode of Beast Wars, whereas it's about half of season 3 in G1. And as for Beast Wars animated shows, there were four (Beast Wars, Beast Wars II, Beast Wars Neo,
and Beast Machines
), G1 had 5 (Generation 1 original, Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory
plus the spinoff movie Scramble City, TFTM (86),
and (unproduced) Return of Convoy).
