    I feel it's a tad unfair for Tigatron, since he was just going to be a white Cheetor rather than this at all. The last minute scrambling to redesign him into a Voyager meant they built up on the Cheetor design rather than go all in on an original design like the MP.

    It does feel unfair, I guess.

    But yeah, if they (?) want my money, they should've thought better :D 

    And it's not like majority hates it, just me and maybe few people. He's still a good bot (in bot mode).

    Looks like Tigatron has been rolling in poop.

    Was he dirty in Beast Wars?

    No, but they're aiming for realistic beast modes and real white tigers aren't one shade of white.

    He wasn't pristine white in the show but didn't had that much yellowing. Real white tigers have yellow spots on their fur because they are supposed to be orange, they just don't have enough pigment in their fur and this results with mostly white fur with some yellow spots where there is some pigment.

    Tigatrons beast mode is ok, same feeling I had for Dinobot’s. Would have preferred my two favorite characters Beast modes have look more badass but whatever I know we can’t have cool edgy shit in these passive days….

    With that said if they aren’t trying to make decent beast modes then don’t bother at all. Thats kind of the whole point of Beast Wars. We had over 15 years to try more BW stuff so we have no excuse for why some of these guys look half assed.

    This is why Beast Wars needs a reboot. The only designs that worked were the toys. The problem started with how the show took on a different identity with the characters that would end up being problematic for CHUG and MP updates. I seriously hope Kingdom and Rise of the Beast does well to bring back Beast Wars in a new light.

    I only care about the Beast modes. Kingdom tried to cater to both the show and realism but it was never going to work. The first generation stuff also had terrible beast-modes save for T30 Rhinox. At this point the only way we can get better beast modes is to redesign the robot modes if Hasbro plans on doing more BW stuff in the future. The 90s show CG just doesn’t work for the toys.

    He looks like a young female tiger.

    Exactly as he should.

    Understood, but all of the beasts are Scorponoks to me ;) 
    How could you skip Scorponok? Makes sense now? I NEEED Tigatron, even if he didn't turn out great in beast mode. I checked tiger anatomy. He's basically a wide Tiger without fur

    So where'd all this talk about female beast modes on male robots come from?
    Because in the show proper it's never brought up and the alt-modes are all pretty genderless, unless I've missed the fully gendered genitalia on a children's cartoon all this time that WASN'T Dinobot's sexy spread...

    Thanks for the info !

    The problem is the figure looks like you are buying an old toy because the second shade looks yellowish

    he needs a light grey paint wash or something across his entire alt mode. a lot of its appeal is lost in kinda looking like a white lump with a bland tiger head on it.

    I don't want to know what you've been eating to think that rolling around in shit makes you look yellowed.

    For those saying the tiger mode looks malnourished or that the legs are too thin, not all tigers are super thick, some are pretty lean, it kind of all depends on what images you pull up. Tigatron's beast mode just resembles a more lean tiger.

    Yeah. The first image there is of an adolescent. The second is a female. Tigatron fits right in there.

    No, they have one per leg, but because cats (and most mammals) walk on their toes, I think there was some effort to provide articulation at both the toes and ankles.
