Okay, so Ravage retooled Cheetor but landed in no man's land in terms of pricepoint.
Now that Tigatron has been confirmed. There is just the matter of one character left. Terrorsaur!
buy the Dr Wu pole swords for a katana
Beast Wars figures need weapons that store properly in beast mode.
Fair enough, but it just looks so tacky because the off white isn’t distributed large enough so it just looks like some chunks of him was soaked in urine and is such a cop out in robot mode. It would’ve been better if Hasbro just cut their losses and just painted the beast mode mouth
It's the end of Kingdom, not the end of BW.
Meh. It's a neat practice in theory but this way people stop complaining about "partsforming."
And this way the transformation doesn't have to accommodate the weapon, which could lead to odd proportions or articulation.
youre the leaker with sources so go tell em
Wow, he looks great! Man, if it weren't for the MPs, I'd be all over this line.
Love it. Hope it gets retooled into Cheetor, at least for generation selects.
The yellowing tends to vary in intensity and location from tiger to tiger, Hasbro could have distributed it a bit better for sure though
Why would it get retooled into Cheetor when we already have Cheetor?
I hope we get Terrorsaur, Tarantulas and potentially Transmetal Megatron
Same, the proportions look better on this version
Cause the Cheetor we have is pretty lame and was criticised for varying aspects that this version seems to fix
I could've done without the yellowing but I understand its inclusion obviously. He looks very impressive overall and pulls off the new leg transformation way better than Cheetor.
Well that is certainly... Kingdom Cheetor but bigger. Guess I should have figured, but I had really hoped they'd use the larger size to give a more faithful transformation. Also, the gut gun being an external accessory really defeats the purpose of it being, you know, a gut gun. Really disappointing way to wrap up an overall great line.
I wonder if the yellowing is less noticeable in person- I get what they're going for, but it looks bad. The headsculpt is a bit weird too.
I think it's the eye shape and the lack of definition on the cat mouth, specially that line going down from the bottom of the nose.
So you want a Cheetor that's taller than Primal?
His transformation is pretty faithful as is, especially to the show where his arms come from the belly and not the back
How did you acquire the figure this time?
Just because it’s natural doesn’t mean it’s necessary here. Couldn’t bother to make Airazor look more like a Falcon but someone looked at this and said to go with it. Whoever is in charge of the artistic direction with these toys isn’t doing a very good job. We could do without the extra shit like whatever they put on Galvatron. With the increase prices put into these paint decals they could have been put to better use because it just looks cheap here.
Also there’s that Tigatron redeco that’s actually orange being made so they could have wasted their time making that one look more realistic.
The unintentional off-white on the Kingdom Grimlock looks better than what they failed to pull off here.
He looks fantastic! Can't wait to get him and finish the Maximal team. Wish he had a Maximal logo on his head crest. They even put that tiny one on Cheetor's so no real excuse there.
And as far as I'm concerned, another Headsculpt that they nailed, especially on the Maximal side. So that begs the question, if they did all the other ones so well/accurate, what the heck happened to Rhinox's head?!?!??
