I could go on but clearly this film was G1 based I see no reference to Beast Wars in the film. Allow me to say I love Beast Wars but G1 Rocks!
You do realize that there has been more than just G1 and Beast Wars right...and I can think of about three of them that would fit the criteria you just put down.
And as for "no reference to Beast Wars". Protoforms, the term "Allspark", Scorponok, Prime Lips, Sparks (souls) all come from Beast Wars and were all featured in the film.
