They were primes and leaders. Shouldn't they have been looking for rogue predacons and missing maximals?

Wasn't there a Magus in Star Wars? Or am I thinking of Stacey Keach?

Nah, Magus was the evil alternate/possible future self of Adam Warlock.

Unless you're talking about the ruler of the alien Technarchy race, who was also called Magus and was the father of Warlock who joined the New Mutants.

No idea about Magus, but Sentinel Prime wasn't even a thing back in the 90s when Beast Wars happenned. Correct me if I'm wrong, but his backstory and personality comes from IDW, I think.

Boring real world answer: the show cost a lot to make, so the cast was deliberately small.


...also, we don't know what Autobots survived the end of the Great War and Pax Cybertronia.

Before IDW, Sentinel Prime was a name and not much else. We knew from the Marvel comics that he was one of Optimus's predecessors, but I think that's all we knew. Well, that plus the fact he was long dead before Beast Wars happened.

Funnily enough Globequake posited that
Optimus Primal was actually Ultra Magnus
