    To me - Looks better (more color variety) except the chrome head

    Outside of the randomly placed and unnecessary chrome, he actually looks good, better than the Universe even. And I dig that boxart.

    Not a fan of the mold, but dare I say I prefer the Universe look. The brown and chrome doesn't work for me.

    So glad I dropped this figure off my list.

    Dinobot's hanging on by a thread as well right now.

    Whoah, wait up. I thought the Henkei version was going to be more orange in color?

    The added details are nice but since the colors of the cheetah are now the same, I'm not all that interested in the Henkei version anymore.

    Bummer.

    Anybody remember all of those people who said Hasbro was "lazy" to not change the packaging design of Universe Cheetor to reflect his Maximal status (other than the Maximal sigil near his name)?

    Well, Takara did pretty much the same thing. Let's see how many of the same people call Takara "lazy".

    BUT in Japan Cybertron is Autobot and Maximal too!

    So Takara is correct and Hasblow is wrong! :p

    Yea in Japan they never changed the faction name, they are all Destrons and Cybertron. I like Hasbro better.

    Henkei Cheetor is more show-accurate in its own way with the gold-ish arms, but it's making it look much worse to me compared to the Universe version. And since the mold is not particularly show-accurate anyway, might as well go with what looks better - and that ain't off-gold arms and a chrome head.

    I like the beast mode as it is the most accurate cat mode I remember seeing.
    That being said,in robot mode,Cheetor has a worse back than"The Hunchback of Notre Dame".I wish they could have fixed it,as it is the one thing keeping me from getting this figure.

    Hasbro's Cheetor is superior in my opinion, but only barely...

    Oh totally. If only they hadn't put chrome on that MP-01 Convoy figure. That mold had some potential.

    :rolleyes2
