    The original toy was so good, this one seems to be a decent update. It definitely needs some filling on the wings. I’ll probably 3D print something till a 3rd party does an upgrade kit.

    Additionally, if I remember correctly: The original plan was going to be for Tigerhawk's voice to be a blend of both Tigatron and Airazor. But either scheduling or budget reasons stopped them from following through.

    I don't recall ever seeing that written down anywhere, but it is believable considering how messy the behind the scenes stuff for BW (and other 90s multi-media projects) can be, especially with the levels of crunch and budget issues that Mainframe was running with.

    I am getting this because somewhere along the line my original tiger hawk disappeared, but even if they repaint this into a razor claw there’s no way I’m replacing my original universe razor claw. That toy just looks better than this toy

    God he looks beautiful, probably one of my most anticipated United figures. Can\'t wait to have Tigerhawk displayed next to his proud momma and papa, before anyone asks that\'s purely my own headcannon.

    It would make sense considering his origins. As it stood, he ended up being mostly tigatron to me as a character on the show

    Admittedly it would have been a LONG time ago. So by now that resource could have either been lost to time or simply stored in my memory incorrectly.

    I'm actually pretty excited for this. I want to display it beside my original Tigerhawk that I owned as a kid.

    My preorder say January 4th but I hope I'll get it by Dec 24th, that'll be a real Christmas miracle.

    Are there any blast effects that can be held in his hands to replicate his sparkle-fingers?

    True, though this toy at least appears to handle its white colored parts better than the original BW toy, which was loaded with that detail-eating 'milk white' plastic.

    This reminds me that I need to sell my original Tigerhawk.

    I did in anticipation of this figure. I've still got so much more to downsize
