The most underrated character from Beast Wars is Scorponok
Large Decepticon Headmaster
who has three modes: a giant scorpion, a robot and a city or fortress. He is partnered with Lord Zarak and also has a drone called Fast-Track.
The toy version was one of the largest TransFormers ever made, perhaps second only to Fortress Maximus.
Scorponok played an important role in the US version of the comic, where he was at the forefront in the final battle with Unicron.
He is portrayed as having a noble side which belies his Decepticon cruelty.
Scorponok also appeared in the Japanese Headmasters series and in the UK comics. In both of these, he was the leader of the Decepticon Headmasters on Nebulon.
