Beast Machines

This list is from - the official web site for the show.
The New series opens as Optimus, Cheetor, Black Arachnia and Rattrap discover themselves suddenly back on the Transformer homeworld of Cybertron -- with no memory of how they got there. Instead of a hero's welcome for winning the Beast Wars, our heroes are hunted by a mysterious new breed of Transformers -- the Vehicons. These vicious machines enforce the will of Megatron, who has returned with a vengeance. Megatron has wrestled possession of Cybertron, leaving Optimus and his teadm constantly under fire and on the run. Forced underground, the Maximals undergo a strange reformatting that not only alters their Beast/Robot bodies, but the very essense of HOW they transofrm. No longer an instantaneous response, transformations is now a disiplined skill that must be learned and refined like a martial art. The Maximals face their greatest challenges as they struggle to free their planet from Megatron and his Vehicons.
