    I noticed that all the Targets I went to have a bunch of Universe Cheetors Shelf warming. The other new releases like Cyclonus, Smokescreen, Starscream and Dinobot fly right off the shelves. Is there something wrong with Cheetor? I don't see people posting about their Cheetor purchase at Target or Walmart. I picked up this figure and thinks it not bad.

    I like my cheetor!

    I bought him for his realistic beast mode, but his Bot mode kinda grew on me.

    I hate Beast Wars stuff. There is a chance others may just pass on everything BW too.

    Despite the kibble, I like Cheetor especially his beast mode. The girls I knew found his jaw gimmick cute and adored him. :D

    For me Cheetor just has the nostalgia factor, otherwise it's not a great figure. The beast mode is better than the original, which isn't saying much, tho. Robot mode could have been alot better if they ditched the mouth gimmick; that would have freed up more space in the cheetah head for storage/transformation.

    Cheetor is not terribe but he's not good either.I would have rather had a partsformer over the "backpack" we got.

    At least the arm kibble is a easy fix

    His name is Meth Kitty. And while some might not go so far as to say he "sucks," it's hard to argue with the opinion that he is pretty weak, for sure the weakest of the current Universe line.

    This. I'm not a fan of Beast Wars, never was. Dinobot was an easy pass for me as well.

    For me, it's just like Animated. The shows are great, but the toys don't really appeal to me.

    this is the least bias opinion u will hear. i grew up with beast wars. beast wars is my favorite tf show. cheetor is a good toy. but he is without a doubt the weakest classics toy yet. that being said, i dont own the bumblebee or dinobot molds, i hear they are great tho and i am trying to get a hold of them.

    christmas just ended, plus with the low economy, and what not, parents tend to not buy toys very often right after christmas after all.

    Universe Cheetor is an awful toy. The Telemocha Cheetor was way better.

    IMO, of course.
