    I had some images of the Diaclone phase 2 and I can say they are going to retool the diabattles 3 times ones called a, ones called something destru, and then there's the beautiful white repaint. They also teased the great diaclone base, and another dude as well

    Does Cheetor have a fake Cheetah face on his chest? It looks like it's molded differently from the beast head. Probably to make it look more show accurate.

    It cannot really be faked considering the amount of bulk he has isn't much plus it still has the whiskers

    Did we ever see news about all of these? I am pretty sure there's been nothing on the diabattles repaints....

    Yup, his cheetah head in the show mass-shifted between modes, too.

    It is fake. The actual beast mode head and chest are clearly not the same sculpt.

    In fact I think you can see the ears of the real cheetah head right behind the fake one.

    Chances are that they did not have a final product to display when the photo was taken. Which is common since deadlines tend to trump anything that might be product accurate.

    And agreed.

    :lol 

    But seriously... I was not planning to get him. I pretty much dislike the fact that some "fans" do stuff like dismiss a product, give off incorrect facts only to say it was "generalized" later on, and so on. But I pretty much look at what they had showed us and I cannot find a reason to like it. So I am hoping that TakaraTomy will not release him.

    But knowing my luck... They will. :lol

    Um the hollowness is gone? G1 cab? New head? New Castle? This suprisingly has a lot of retooling for the figure plus its one of those cases its ok to double-dip the molds as powermaster prime and ginrai are both different characters

    Nice, Fake cheetah head is the way to go, It's the only way we'll get an accurate Dinobot if they ever do him.

    I wonder if it's still possible to have the actual cheetah head on the front instead of the fake one?

    Yeah. I hate that cheating, no pun intended, when it isn't needed. If this was masterpiece dinobot, by all means cheat away.

    >inferno looks great
    >meanwhile cheetor looks like crap
    as expected of the beast____ era.

    animal TFs are at their best when they're not expected to look like non-mechanical organisms. shame they'll probably never go for any of geewun's beast/monster TFs of note.
