    I'm thinking anyone who thinks the yellowing doesn't belong has never seen a white tiger, they're not actually pure white and vary by individual. The first one I ever saw was far more "yellowed" and "dirtier" than Tigertron here, which given that part of the Kingdom aesthetic is more animal accurate beast modes, should've been expected.

    It's a little disappointing that the gut gun doesn't help cover the crotch plate in Beast mode and his tiger paws are way too small, but other then that, I like what I see. It's like they took all the issues with Cheetor and refined the transformation IMHO. Love the robot mode headsculpt.

    It's Hasbro though. It's more likely they were homaging the yellowing of the white plastic. :D

    Even the MP Tigatron was purposely yellowed.

    Look at Ravage's legs. He has got the baby feet like Cheetor does.

    It definitely is an improvement in certain areas but the fact it's essentially a recycled mold from a deluxe throws me off. Wished they did more extensive tinkering for it to standout from Cheetor. This doesn't do it for me.

    Gut gun or not, I might actually have to look for the MP now as this mainline Tigatron might not do it for my Beast Wars shelf.

    Yellowing on the fur is accurate to real world white tigers because the fur is still supposed to be orange but is lacking in pigment due to a genetic mutation.

    Nope, Ravage is a remold of Cheetor, beast legs don't collapse as far as Tigatron

    The robot mode is really nice but the tiger mode looks slightly worse than cheetor even though they have him more elaborate in hopes of being better

    So this is the last of the Kingdom line I hear, I really hope I'm wrong. It's really depressing because I'm still holding out hope on Kingdom Tarantulas DX

    He's awesome and I can't wait to get him. Bot mode is perfect, main issue with the beast mode is that the neck is a bit long/too high for a tiger, but other than that minor complaint I think he's perfect, especially compared to his original figure

    They took everything I hated about the cheetor mold and fixed it. No more disproportion in the waist. No mor weird legs. And the cherry on top the stomach gun. I honestly would buy a cheetor with this engineering at Voyager price with that gun inclusion. Do it hasbro.

    Tarantulas is rumored for next year, and we've still got the rest of wave 4 as well as the golden disk collection with terrorsaur.

    Look at Ravage's legs. The animal hind legs don't match Tigatron's. Tigatron's animal legs are recessed a bit while Cheetor's aren't.

    I want a Third Party to make a Gut Gun that actually transforms and stores properly now.

    Oh! Oh! And a samurai sword to mimic his look in the manga too!

    This may be because I am color blind but the yellowing on the figure is not as subtle as it should be then. It is a lot more in your face and prominent that it looks like aged plastic already.
