    I'm hearing and seeing the phrase "Beast Mode" a fair bit in recent years, mostly as a teen tag, pertaining to them being active or hyper-active... and a bit like saying that they are awesome.
    It might have taken 10 or so years, but is this just the young kids of the late 90s Beast Wars era using a phrase in their teens from their childhood, like us old farts might say "roll out" instead of "let's go". (okay, maybe just in my head then )

    On Bell Street, Preston(?) there's an apartment advertising billboard for selling apartments with the phrase in super large fonts: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE.

    Metroplex perhaps?

    I would guess it is more likely in reference to NFL player Marshawn Lynch who was nicknamed 'beast mode', rather than the BW series.

    The 'Beast Quake'...the stadium shook so much after this touchdown that it registered as an earthquake with the USGS....

    Best episode ever
    I hadn’t even realised when initially posting that Cyborg actually transforms into Primes truck mode! I only saw that part when my son rewatched the episode today.

    Deception Bay (QLD) made the news a few days ago for all the wrong reasons. Pretty sure that's a typo for Decepticon Bay.
