This idea ran away with me a bit. New Season of Beast Wars. Set in 16/17XX north America. Autobots are normal animals for the most part. Decepticons are all imaginary creatures due to a English woman who initially doesn't realize she's helping the bad guys. Native dude becomes outcast due to autobots giving him mecha hands, so he chills with them. Hijinks ensue.
