Looks nice, though flawed.
Appears to be mis-transformed, but closer than many other photos I've seen. Pretty kibble-tastic, especially around the arms and back.
Now that I've seen a side view picture of his bot-mode, I'm not so sure I'll still be getting him. He definitely is misstransformed, but I'm not sure how much of a difference that would make for his huge back kibble.
Beast mode is great, but bot mode, Ewwwww. Easy pass, but where are the Dinobot pics dammit?!?
(shudders at the back kibble)
Thats alot of Junk in the trunk.
this new cheetor seemed like a bad idea even when i first saw pics of it...i mean..he doesn't even have the quasar cannon or that laser he had that was made out of his tail...loss of show accuracy=fail imo..=[ not to mention the back kibble adds even more crappiness to it..
hopefully dinobot will make up for it because that one actually DOES redeem a lot from the original figure...i just hope he still has a sword....>.<
I just can't get used to the bot feet....
I wasn't going to pick him up when I saw the Hasbro pics, but he's growing on me now that I've got the feeling that he's not supposed to be as tall/lanky/skinny as the previous photos let on.
I'll wait to see more pictures of the toy. After all, how many times have we seen mistransformed pictures and were later impressed with better pictures?
I have a guess, though. On the picture where we see Cheetor's profile, his "butt plate" seems to be raised, and the backpack is really big. In the CGI model and with the 1990s Cheetor toy, the back kibble was more reasonably arranged as "wings" on his back, not unlike Grimlock.
Another possibility is that the "wings" clip together not unlike Animated Bumblebee. After all, I'm sure I can take Animated Bee, mistransform his backpack, and give him a lotttttt of junk back there.
Not saying I'm right. Just saying those are 2 possible explanations for the kibble, and I await more pictures.
Yes - I noticed the mistransformation as well upon further examination.
Looks to me like he could be transformed a LOT better with far less back kibble.
You it's kind of funny I really thought the concept was to make a more show accurate figure... I will give them that the alt mode is but now the robot mode isn't anymore. I wish they would have redone his Transmetal 2 form instead. I really liked his TM2 form on the show just wish his toy was as cool as the show model. I still wish that we could have gotten another two seasons of Beast Wars instead of BM.
So is this confirmation that not many people are looking forward to this...?
The Kibble and Back Bits makes me want to steer away from this one. Hopefully it is horribly mis-transformed.
Is it true were getting the dinobots to go with Grimlock?,I have read a few posts and
seen where they say it.When will we see these?.Oh if it is then I hope they come out
the same time as MP Grimlock as I have him preordered right now,and would love to add
the other dinobots with him and 1.0 Grimmy in my collection right now.Oh and back on
topic,I don't care what cheetor looks like with his imitation of the hunchback of
notre dame,he is still the best looking one we will get.
Not feeling it
I knew it. Cheetor has back kibble. Damn me for being a Beast Wars completionist.
No, they're talking about this Dinobot, which homages the Beast Wars character known by the name Dinobot.
Dinobot - Transformers Universe Classics 2.0 - Transformers Resources
not a fan. i think the original is better.
