    Looking at the new Cheetor mold makes me wonder if this is where they got their inspiration for the design.

    Anyone see the resemblance? Either Cheetor's on steroids or that dog's a robot in disguise.

    Isn't that the whippet they gave the protein blocker to that makes it super muscular?

    Cheetor resembles that dog only in the muscle department. The body stance and look minus all the conanesque muscles is 100% cheeta/gepard. Cheeta has a lean look, w/o all the leg muscles bulging out.

    I think that Cheetor is actually mistransformed in that pic...

    Jeezuz...If I came across both of those things in the wild I wouldn't be sure which one to thrash with a shovel first.

    That said, I do think Cheetor is mistransformed in both alt and bot modes in the pics we've seen. Unfortunately I don't think a correct transformation will help him very much.

    The beast mode starting behind the back of the head looks a little bit like LioConvoy.

    Some of the overdone muscles do kinda look similar, but that's about it. While I don't like Cheetor enough to buy him, he doesn't look all that bad. Though I do hope the Dinobot we're getting turns out a little better than this.

    The only thing I can think of is maybe the panel on the underside of him might shift a little bit, but he appears to be fully transformed into his cheetah-mode. Bot-mode on the other hand is clearly misstrasformed (the whole arm thing), but that picture isn't in this thread, so I don't think they were talking about that.

    I think it looks like that panel by his belly should be pushed up more so it's not at an angle, and perhaps that would make his back less sloped. Just a guess. I think Cheetor is fugly no matter how he's presented so I don't really care overall.

    Personally I feel Cheetor's inspiration was a cheetah.

    :wink:

    I still say he looks like a mix between BW and BM versions.
