    Having yellowing is accurate to the real animal but it is not done well at all. It's way too uneven. There's practically none on the torso.
    Otherwise, Tigatron looks great.

    This looks fantastic, but I think that at least for me he’s going to make Cheetor an eyesore considering it’s what he could have been. I’d have been happy had they given Cheetor the 86 Hot Rod treatment and sold him as a voyager with his gut gun and more attention to the engineering.

    Poor Predacons getting neglected, hopefully we see Terrorsaur and Tarantulas soon. Looking forward to Shadow Panther.

    This looks great. A real example of effort on Hasbro's part.

    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.

    The alcohol wouldn't just remove the yellow but also the tiger stripes.
    And the yellowing is standard for an authentic white tiger mode.


    We just got the last.neflix assortments.
    No tigertron.
    And I doubt premium finish line will get to beast wars any time soon.
    And they'd probably leave the yellow on.
    It's this guy or the future orange version.

    Basically an upsized Cheetor with a few new parts. If anyone was expecting anything different, I don’t know what to tell you

    Bring it on

    Considering they've only done that with Hot Rod and ER Prime I'm guessing they're still hesitant to go all in on that design philosophy.

    Hot Rod is a good test, but they could have viewed him as a big enough name to get away with it. Cheetor likely isn't there yet, even if they're positioning him as the Bee of Beast Wars.

    Yeah, they really flubbed the effort in trying to weather him and then just blotch it on.

    The figure looks really good, otherwise.

    Yeah that’s a fair point, I was just having a wishful thinking moment there. I just think that beastformers tend to be a lot harder to pull off so he could have benefitted from the extra budget IMO. Then again, Airazor is proof an amazing beastformer can be done at deluxe price point but I think that it’s partly due to her character design to begin with.

    Huh. Not a fan of the paint apps that make it look like someone left this figure in the window sill for ten years, but... Everything else looks absolutely phenomenal! I can easily see this becoming my favorite WFC Trilogy figure.

    Straight from the tiger's mouth! :)  All of this, plus the paint distribution...however, if you think these are gonna put a dampner on my enjoyment, begin rethinking, folks.
    This fits perfectly with my Kingdom BW figs. Now that I've Netflixed them up, I am 100% satisfied.

    I'm ok with the yellow parts since these kingdom beast wars toys focus on more realistic beast mode.
    I'm surprise that his gun can't be stored in the tiger body,but it's better than none.

    I wonder who designed Rhinox’s head. We have 6 other Maximals with spot on perfect heads. Then with Rhinox Hasbro was like make it look like a potato.

    Another homerun for this line imo. The tail whip is a bit 'blah' but otherwise, they nailed it.

    Fair point about the arms. One of the biggest things that bugged me about Cheetor though was the way they did the legs. I thought for sure, with the added room, they could create something more in line with how they're supposed to look. Also, the gut gun... what's even the point if it doesn't store inside?

    It looks more like they wanted to emulate the yellowing on classic Tigatron toys. :confused:
