The IDW Beast Wars continuity incorporates a variation of events of Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo into its history creating a fairly unique timeline for the Beast Era. It appears to go something like this...

Great War (Pre-Beast era)

  • Just before his destruction, Unicron foresees the need for a big lug to help bring him back and so transforms a peaceful Maximal colonist into Elephorca.
  • Unicron explodes, releasing Angolmois energy into the galaxy.
  • Maximals and Predacons begin to appear/be created and fight alongside Autobots and Decepticons. (No details of this are known, but it had to happen somehow.)

Great War (Beast era)

(As opposed to the 3H BotCon comics, which seemed to suggest that the Pax Cybertronia and the Great Upgrade to Maximals and Predacons were roughly simultaneous, IDW continuity makes it quite clear that the Great War continued for a good long time after the emergence of the new factions.)

  • Maximals and Predacons become the more prominent factions, eclipsing Autobots and Decepticons.
  • Just before his destruction, Unicron foresees the need for a big lug to help bring him back and so transforms a peaceful Maximal colonist into Elephorca.
  • Unicron explodes, releasing Angolmois energy into the galaxy.
  • In an era of general downsizing, the Predacons buck the trend and create the powerful, destructive gestalt Tripredacus.
  • Former Autobots Prowl, Ironhide, and Silverbolt have become the Maximal Elders and, despite the vogue for downsizing and power conservation, they add the ability to combine into a massive gestalt Magnaboss in order to counter Tripredacus. Magnaboss goes on to become a legendary Maximal warrior.
  • BB is held prisoner in a Maximal prison and subjected to "re-education" that traumatizes him. He escapes with the help of Starscream.
  • As the War seems, after long eons, to actually be winding down, a new Galvatron seeks to utilize this uncertainty about the future to seize power for himself. He discovers Angolmois energy and sees it as a path to power. He gathers a crew loyal to him including Megastorm, Starscream, and BB and takes them to the planet Gaea to find the Anglomois. He is opposed by Lio Convoy and his crew of Maximals. (Events roughly parallel to those of the Beast Wars II anime occur at this point, though a few specifics may vary.)
  • When the battle on Gaea becomes fierce, the robot Moon deserts his Celestial masters and joint the Maximals.
  • Galvatron is undone and destroyed by his choice to embrace Angolmois energy.

Pax Cybertronia era

  • Peace is declared. The Pax Cybertronia is signed. Magnaboss disappears and is not seen again.
  • Magmatron seeks to pick up where Galvatron failed, seize the Angolmois, and end the newly founded peace. He is opposed by Big Convoy and his crew and eventually defeated. (Events roughly parallel to those of the Beast Wars Neo anime occur at this point, though a few specifics may vary.)

The Beast Wars

Predacon general Magmatron travels back to the era of the Beast Wars on prehistoric Earth. He's supposed to pick up where Ravage failed and retrieve the rogue Megatron, but his actual plan is to gather an army from the Axalon's stasis pods and return home to conquer Cybertron. However, Lio Convoy has inserted Razorbeast into the Predacon forces to stop him. Razorbeast manages to keep some of the awakened protoforms as Maximals and then stalls for time and tries to contact Cybertron. Finally, the new Maximals arrive in the nick of time and defeat the Predacon forces. Magmatron is trapped in a timeless void, while Razorbeast and all the other characters settle down in the past to wait and see if Cybertron got their call and will send help. The Ascending
