Beast Wars II: Chō Seimeitai Transformers (ビーストウォーズII 超生命体トランスフォーマー Bīsuto Wōzu Sekondo: Chō Seimeitai Toransufōmā?, literally "Beast Wars II: Super Life-form Transformers") refers to the 1998 Japanese Transformers television animated series, and the movie and toyline that resulted from it. While its position in the Transformers continuity has previously been unknown, the IDW Publishing comic book mini-series Beast Wars: The Gathering and comments from Transformers writer Simon Furman have shown it is part of the Beast Wars continuity.[citation needed] The series was preceded by Beast Wars, and was followed by Beast Wars Neo.

The series has a much lighter tone and is aimed more towards children, whereas the more accessible Beast Wars was intended for a wider age range. The series also uses conventional animation rather than CGI. With the exceptions of the faction leaders, all of the characters within the series are either re-molds or re-colors of earlier Beast Wars figures or Generation 2/Machine Wars figures.[2]

As Lio Convoy and Galvatron fight over the mysterious energy source known as Angolmois energy, many strange occurrences and mysterious properties of Angolmois begin to arise.

Toy line

The series was primarily repaints of non-show Beast Wars figures and repaints of Generation 2 figures, including two unreleased Autoroller figures and the black Dreadwing/Smokecreen repaint, planned for the cancelled 1996 assortment of figures. In both cases the items were recolored and slightly remolded.

The series did feature new molds for Lio Convoy and Galvatron, as well as the Tako Tank. Generation 1 Trypticon, and Beast Wars Dinobot, Cybershark, Wolfang, and Waspinator were remolded as "upgraded" versions of Megastorm, Starscream, BB, Dirge and Thrust.

The remolded Cybershark saw release as Overbite in the U.S. as Universe exclusive.
