    Well, that’s disappointing.

    A black cheetah looks nothing like a panther.

    Been waiting for them to announce this for a year now.

    Not because I know anything but because it's the logical first repaint.

    tigatron isnt a logical repaint, the base uses are show accurate and tigatron and cheetor despite similarities didnt share a character model in the show


    also knew it, though i dont know if ill get it its nice to see theyre not opposed to non show characters

    A TTMall exclusive? Haven't had one of those in awhile. I'll definitely grab one, but am still waiting on the new G1 MP reveal in the meantime.

    What? The show characters that takara has done in mp have all leaned more toward show accuracy over toy accuracy, so why would anyone think it’s logical for tigatron to be a straight repaint? That’s like thinking a mp blackarachnia would just be a black and gold tarantulas

    Wow. Didn't think I'd want a Cheetor repaint, but that is one sexy beast.

    To be fair that first Tarantulas figure did have some pretty massive boobs.

    Ravage, or generic repaint?

    Damn, what an ugly looking figure. Much like MP-38, I have nothing else to say about this then that I couldn't feel any less excited about its existence.

    And I'm once again thankful that my BW MP collecting stays free of repaints, I'm not even tempted to pick one up because they are all hideous so far.

    If you're recall, the MP Primal "commander version" was modeled after the toy, not the show. A panther may not look like a black cheetah, but that's exactly what the Shadow Panther toy was.

    What this tells me is the MP Dinobot special edition will undoubtedly be BW Grimlock.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think the original Shadow Panther was implied to be "Tripredacus Agent", which at the time was Beast Wars code for "Ravage."

    Yes. I’m pretty sure shadow panther is his own character, however when hasbro released the takara figure via hasbrotoyshop it was renamed tripredacus agent. Tm2 Walmart tripredacus agent was ravage so it can be retconned that shadow panther might be ravage

    I have mixed opinions on MP-34S Shadow Panther. Takara could have waited until they made an MP Tigatron remold of Cheetor, but I can cope with this.

    BTW, is Shadow Panther a new, original character or a Predacon incarnation of G1 Ravage?
