    Lulwhut?

    Do you mean the differences between the original Cheetor and Universe?

    Well, here's one:

    The original had a badass bot mode and a brick cheetah mode, while the Universe one has a GREAT cheetah mode and a sub-sub-par robot mode.

    I can agree with this, I have nothing but love for my BW Cheetor though.

    Are there any comparison photos out there between Universe Cheetor and either of the Takara pure white Tigatrons? I think they'd look a lot better side by side than the straight repaints do.

    Me too. He's still an awesome toy even today. I still have my original, BW 10th and I plan on getting TeleBW one one day. (though I already have Tigatron, so that may be enough)

    The original's robot mode may be a bit more traditional, but it's still far below the level of practically any modern Deluxe TF. Personally, I still think Night Slash Cheetor is better than any other single Cheetor toy, though Transmetal comes close.

    Hey, whatever else you can say about Universe Cheetor, it is in fact a better toy than Transmetal 2 or the Mega version from Beast Machines. :D

    I can't wholly agree with that. TM2 Cheetor is pretty damn good.

    Well, on basic technical merits like restriction in the arms, Universe seems to come out ahead. If TM2 Cheetor had better elbows and hands, it probably would have been a contender for best Cheetor. Only my opinion, of course. :)

    TM2 Cheetor has a good weapon, decent show accuracy and wrist articulation. Uni. Cheetor has none of those things, just some slightly better elbows. TM2 cheetor doesn't have big backpack kibble or cheetah legs hangin' off his arms.

    "Show accuracy" didn't exist back then - the toys were designed in advance of Mainframe doing the CG models. And most of TM2 Cheetor's joints were useless jokes, just the hips and knees were vaguely useful unlike the elbows. All of Universe Cheetor's joints function better. Transmetal 2 Cheetor is a baffling case of seemingly pointless joint restriction. At least Universe Cheetor has the joints, and only oddly restricted in one place.

    Somehow I like the TM2 Cheetor mold as Tripredacus Agent, but I can't stand it as Cheetor.

    Agreed, as far as Cheetor, night slash all the way.

    I don't think I understand what you're asking for.

    I think he's asking "which Cheetor figure is the best?" or "which Cheetor figure do you like more?".

    I like the original more than any other, but I may give Universe Cheetor an opportunity to shine.

    Don't ask a question and then insult people for translating your mostly cryptic/poorly written posts. That's just rude.

    OK, I didnt make any real contribution, so here it goes:

    1. Universe Cheetor is taller than BW Cheetor, any version.
    2. Universe Cheetor lack of a real weapon, while BW Cheetor has not only one quasar laser, but another gun.
