    Then, as I said earlier, it's probably an intentional nod to his accent

    You know, maybe Tigatron is a upscaled Cheetor? Maybe that’s why the art looks like how it does.

    The art was probably commissioned early on, when Tigatron was just supposed to be a Cheetor retool.

    Even upscaled, the Cheetor tooling would make for a really crappy Voyager. Lots of shortcuts taken with it that wouldn't have been needed with the parts budget of a larger size class.

    Looks better. I never was a fan of that mold of wearing a truck cab as a hoodie. I like a little more thoughtful engineering to keep the imagination going.

    I doubt Tigatron would be a straight upscale of Cheetor, but I wouldn't expect it to be a brand new mold either. Don't be surprised if they base it's engineering on Cheetor's general transformation scheme.

    I thought @Apollux said Tigatron is a new mold voyager?

    (At the cost of Polar Claw... :(  )

    when will people learn that promo art isn't always accurate to the final product? I mean we didn't get Siege Hound with Hot Shot's head did we? Siege artwork also used the MP figure as a basis for Sideswipe among other art "errors" throuout WFC. Tigatron's art is probably along those lines rather than actually representing the final product.

    Or another possibility is that Tigatron is superficially similar to Cheetor in a way the art embellishes despite the toys being different sculpts? Tigatron noticeably lacks the big blue (or I suppose green in his case) blocks the shoulder attach to, having a much more normal chest shape. (compared to Shadow Panther who's accurate to Cheetor's sculpt)

    Sideswipe's boxart or one of the generic Siege posters?


    As far as Tigatron goes, Apollux had stressed several times that the legs transform similarly to Cheetor (here's one I found) but that it's still an entirely different and unique figure in both modes.

    I don't know about Hasbro, but for me I'm going to paint one blue and call him armorhide, a black one into Stockade, and a green one into Guzzle.
    I like Kingdom Rattrap, but I'd like to start a heretical sect based on TM Rattrap if we are taking applications.

    Excellent point.

    We might be getting a Core Nemesis, but this blurb suggests a Voyager...

    Hell yes for the earth mode Nemesis. Hopefully we get a core class as well later on.

    Yeah, and Optimus Prime's says he comes with an Energon axe. Bumblebee's says he comes with the Alpha Trion protocols. The powers/weapons section isn't a literal list of accessories.

    Is wave 4 set to be spread out over 2022, or do we know that yet? Seems like a lot of figures to just drop. While I won’t be purchasing many of these since I’m just not a Beast Wars collector, I am pretty excited to see what all of these guys look like.

    But the decision to give him Polar Claw’s voyager slot seems to have been made before the actual toys entered the design phase, let alone the engineering design phase. So those Cheetor details wouldn’t have existed yet to draw from.
