    And the interesting thing to me is that Cheetor was originally the mold that Tigatron was redecoed from. I honestly think that the only reason there wasn't a repaint/remold of Universe Cheetor OR Dinobot for that matter is because of their location near the end of the Universe 2.0 line. I'm not going to go into how many Cheetors and Dinobots were pegwarming in every store in my area because 1. I don't have photographic proof and 2. someone will come in to say how they couldn't keep those two on the shelf while Rachets were everywhere, so it is irrelevant. However, since several A/E/C molds were planned for the line and moved to the Movie line, as well as Fracture apparently being intended for Uni 2.0 (source TFWiki), I have absolute faith that a Tigatron and possibly a BW Grimlock were at least considered.

    Considered, for sure. Especially Grimlock. The Dinobot mold was the stronger of the two beasts we got, but like Cheetor, was brought down by an unnecessary gimmick -- namely the launcher in the tail.

    I'm confident Dinobot will get a Generations update in the not too distant future, and a Voyager sized figure at that.

    I've finally had time to upload Peter Cullen's second panel from Cybertroncon for those interested.

    Once again I apologise for the shakiness due to our unpreparedness at our first con. We are a lot closer to Peter in this one so the sound should be a bit better.

    Cheetor isn't single use. They can reuse the entire mold save for his bot and cheetah head. That's plenty enough to go on. And they have a ready made black repaint in Shadow Panther/Ravage.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up for a true BW Dinobot update unless you're okay with something like a Titans Return Grimlock retooling/repaint.

    I still wish they'd make a Dinobot out of Generations Springer. They had a prototype that went nowhere.

    My family and I really enjoyed Cybertron Con last year.

    Wish there will be one again this year in China! If not, I really hope they will bring Hascon to China next year, I am sure my wife and kid will have a blast while I go absolutely mad with joy!
