    Honestly, its far from my favorite figure. I lucked out and got one on ebay MISB a few months go for like 30 bucks. I only got it because it was so cheap. In beast mode it has a lot of trouble standing up on it's own

    I posted several more pictures over in his respective thread, but the Fans Hobby Megatron came in for me today. I love the figure, I know several of you are turned off by 3rd party offerings as well as the boxiness of this guy, but for now he's a great antagonist to Gorira until PE's megs arrives, and then I'm not sure where he'll fit in. I, personally, do want to support companies that are giving BW love and attention, even off-the-wall offerings like this guy.

    As always, thanks for viewing.

    Thank you for the in-depth explanation. This is one figure I don't have, and am on the fence about.

    It's an alright toy, though it really suffers for how small the feet are in robot mode.

    How about the evolution of a (mostly) yellow (mostly) cat to brighten your day?

    Edit: In case anyone is interested, here's the current state of my Cheetor collection, minus 4-5 that are in the Detolf displays.

    Forged to Fight Dinobot probably won't happen unless a third party does it. Turns out the alt mode kind of.... 'borrows' most of its design straight from a Killer Instinct character.

    I still love the alt mode regardless, so it would be nice. He's pretty damn adorable.

    It's another Riptor. Only the third picture is Dino.

    Dinobots proportions in beast mode look much better than that other raptor though, I watchched my friend play Overwatch the other night and was reminded of Primals new game look when I saw this character.
