    A little dissapointed with the uncoverd coil in the middle of his chest, but hey he is a good looking universe figure, Cyclonus though, I'm not sure if he is a buy for me or not, we will have to see

    These test-shots appear to be the final product, so I'd assume that Nightstick is purple.

    If I were a BW collector, I'd certainly grab Cheetor.

    Cyclonus and Nightstick look a lot better (though the amount of gray/beige plastic still annoys me), do we know if this is the Henkei version or the improved Hasbro one?

    Based on the Q&A stuff from Hasbro before, this is probably the updated final to match the earlier painted proto pics, which would (probably) make the upper body of Nightstick and the nosecone of the jet mode purple (not sure if those bits are plastic color or just painted over now.) I could be wrong, but it looks like the different gray tones may match better as well.

    Cheetor looks a bit odd in spots (heh), but fair overall. I assume the transformation seen in recent Takara promo pics is the correct one, with the feet flattened out in robot mode. The cat-like features of the robot face seem a bit too exaggerated, perhaps.

    Yay! Correctly colored Nightstick!

    Oh, and Cheetor is cool too.

    Is Cheetor's face painted with fishing boat glitter finish?

    Cyclonus and Nightstick finally look good to me. Will pick this up along with the Henkai version, barring the possibility of Hasbro putting out a Skywarp-colored repaint named "Armada" or "Armada Cyclonus".

    ....or a Bombshell-colored one, if you want to go with that theory. :)

    Can't wait to buy both those suckers.

    Also, Cheetor looks about as tall as Cyclonus. He should fit in nicely with Ultra Primal, anyways.

    What no way to make them go from green to red to blue too? :lolol  God that little tip of the hat to the original variants of Cheetor is just so neat and the way they pulled it off, cool breeze. I am a little concerned though that Cheetor does not have his iconic Gut Gun weapon, I mean I love seeing new interpretations of old figures but seriously why doesn't he have a gun? This isn't BM Cheetor in BW Cheetor body is it? It's supposed to be BW Cheetor and the original Beast Wars Cheetor never used a tail-blade that came later with his Transmetal incarnation.

    All these figures makes me wish I had sare cash to get new TFs again, just one a month would do for me, argh why, why must Hasbro continue to produce so many toys when I can't afford even one a month? :(

    Yay cheetor is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the eyes, they were always orange in robot mode, so thats what there going to turn into on mine. Cyclonus looks cool also, but im more excited about all these new beastwars figures. Us people who grew up with it are finally getting some love for once. I was mad at first, when he didnt come with his gun, and I kinda hoped the cheetah legs would be on his back, like in the show, but this is great, cant wait to see more of mt favourite character dinobot!!!!!!!!! just hope megatron from BM gets a redo. If done right itd be a godly figure. Oh yes though just noticed something. Mabey it should be revearsed, the mouth was always closed in robo mode, so I think the mouth closed ones should be orange, and the mouth open ones should be green.
