    I think that's all he was ever going to be. Given that's what the original toy was. And I'm cool with that (and am hyped; got invoiced for him today)
    Well, I think he has an extra accessory too for Cheetor.

    Ah so just a figure based on the Toy. Got it. I’m one to prefer show based figures. Like I won’t get MP36+

    Personally I still see him as the correct depiction of the Tripredacus Agent from the show. Ravage is a cool addition to the show, but the cat head was a bit much. Just my opinion. I may be biased because I love Shadow Panther haha. Black and Yellow is a fantastic combination.

    MP-34S - Shadow Panther | Facebook

    First off I enjoy the little gray and silver details all over the piece. Sad I have to go to work now. I like this figure a whole lot! Also the coin has the wrong symbol all over the place lol. And the card has the original CG render from the original toy release.

    In the original render there’s no gun handle in the right hand.

    Thanks for the pics dude!

    So awesome that they reused the original box art for his tech spec card. Really retro.
    Are his shoulder joints less stiff than on Cheetor?
    Oh and how about his arm guard joints? Do you reckon they are as prone to breakage as on Cheetor?

    Shoulder joints are same. But the shoulder balls do click in better. They’re more solid now.

    Arm guard is same. One was easier to move than my cheetor. The other was harder. So same.

    I assume none of the arm guards are prone to breakage because this is the first I’ve heard of that! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Thanks for answering my questions.

    Best to be a bit careful with those arm guards. There's been a few reports of the armature breaking. The plastic they used on Cheetor is quite fragile. I think it's the same stuff they used for Legends Weirdwolf's canopy's hinge joint.

    I was correct. The shoulders have been remolded for a much better and secure connection. If a cheetor reissue comes I would fully expect this to be implemented there too.

    You can see it’s physically different here.

    And you can see the raised hooked/clip area here. I tried to take a picture so you can see the raised area.

    I love the way they snap in now. I will probably buy another cheetor just to have these shoulders.

    Hope this is useful or interesting to some of you.
