I'm not sure the Beast Wars era characters are described as "Cyborgs", or at least the argument is more or less semantics. The Maximals and Predacons were no different from Autobots and Decepticons when they arrived, aside from the fact that they were more fuel efficient and smaller. They covered themselves in animal "skins", but the shows a tad fuzzy on how organic they became. Spotlight: Shockwave touched on this a bit when they had the Dinobots go to Earth and adopt the hide of Dinosaurs to protect themselves. Shockwave completely blasted it off and they went into statis lock, and underneath the hide was their classic toy appearances which acted as an exoskeleton.
