    Hey,

    I recently received three of Takara Tomy's rereleased Beast Wars figures, namely Blackarachnia, Dinobot and Cheetor. All three support fantastic paint jobs, Blackarachnia being the first show accurate rendition of her pre-Transmetal form. The others are (IMO) superior to Hasbro's 10th Anniversary reissues with more detailing and accurate colouring, Dinobot has a mouth for christsakes!

    Anyway I've shot some galleries so you can all have a look, find them below:

    Blackarachnia
    Dinobot
    Cheetor

    I knew Dinobot's mouth was just painted on, and not molded.

    Ah well, like I'll ever get him.

    Nice pics. I especially love the group shot of the Maximals. I'd pick up Cheetor if given the chance, but since I already have the TM version and Shadow Panther, I probably won't get another one

    Nice galleries man!

    I've got Cheetas & Black Widow too and they are really lovely! Paint apps are hot.
    Though Dinobot doesn't strike me as beeing much more show accurate than the BW 10th or original. We should definately get a masterpiece of this guy!!

    Very cool galleries. I still want to pick up a Blackaracnia. Honestly IMO the mouth painted on Dinobot looks really tacked on and terrible. The Raptor mode looks freaking awesome though.

    Its amazing the different a paint job makes, esp. on Cheetor. But I agree with Lord Ginrai, that Dinobot looks way off, besides no paint job will ever get that mold close to show accurate. He truly needs a new mold, so does BA.

    I don't collect BW anymore, so I'll pass on these.

    Very nice pictures Alex! Thanks a lot. I'm really tempted to pick some of these up.

    One question, though. Is there a crack on Cheetors beast mode face? The (his) left side? Looks like it in some of the close-ups.

    Dinobot's a disaster. his beast mode doesnt look anything like the show model (WTF SPOTS), and he's missing a ton of blue in robot mode.

    hasbro reissue looked better.

    Cheetor is pretty nice. no amount of paint can make the Tarantulas mold look like the Blackarachnia show model for me, and Dinobot looks like a classic example of "trying too hard". :)

    Thanks for the pics. I love and bought the Black Widow, but I actually prefer the Dinobot and Cheetor from Hasbro. Hasbro Cheetor's cat eyes look cool to me and Dinobot with the blue faceplate and blue on the inside of his weapon look better to me.

    Thanks for pointing that out, i hadn't actually noticed it! Yeah there is a very small crack in the plastic I'm not sure if this is just a problem with my Cheetor or a symptom of this mould being used so many times, either way it doesnt cause any problems and is pretty unnoticeable (until pointed out).

    I prefer Dinobot to the Hasbro version for a number of reasons, his Beast eyes are more accurate, his mouth may be painted on but at least he has one, there is no blue and green on his legs, his tail weapon is the correct colour inside, and (one of my biggest pet hates from the 10th Anni line) he doesn't have a maximal insignia on his chest.

    Yours AK
