    IMO the communicator accessories are kinda lame and didn't really add to the overall playability of the figure.
    I am happy with the basic stuff that MP Cheetor came with.

    In a perfect world... They would toss in a bunch of accessories with MP Rattrap. Since he would no doubt be the smallest, they could toss in all of these potential extras with him.

    Seeing him in green just makes me want Tigatron more.

    I agree that the communicators don't really add anything other than the ability to recreate very specific scenes and I can't see myself posing my Maximals all in a row on the shelf fixated on their communicators like millennials and their phones. Actually, that sounds pretty good now... Dammit!
    Regardless, they're featured in the show and I want every little piece of Beast Wars I can get my hands on so if they become available in a way that doesn't try to con me into buying an unwanted repaint figure then I'll be all over them.

    Actually that tab is on the final figure as well, but it's exclusive to the cheetah's left leg.

    It's a bummer that they didn't include it, but I'd probably never use it.

    Oh that is a shame, I wonder why they didn't include them with the original releases....I do hope they are not going to try and dupe us into getting a repaint in order to get them. Hopefully they are saving them to include with a smaller MP....say...Rattrap?

    Honestly I wonder if they were just dropped because TT thought they were too pointless. They're incredibly scene-specific for characters who appeared so frequently, and are really just generic gizmos. Plus they likely would've put the price up a not-insignificant amount because of how detailed the paints apps would be on such "useless" accessories many wouldn't use.

    I doubt they're left out as incentives for future redecoes simply because, again, I can't see them being that desirable.

    Exactly! It's not a particularity memorable or effective piece of item/ gadget/ maguffin that was integral to the show.

    So what I don't get is people say he is fine without it because it's only from one episode but when a G1 MP doesn't have "that one thing from that one episode" fandom armageddon erupts... I wanted these. Same for the one dropped on Primal.

    I have to say I echo those feelings about these accessories being pretty lame. It's the only thing about the BW MPs I have to complain about mind you, so I'm glad it's such a tiny thing that I'm not keen on. If you made a list of some of the objects Primal and Cheetor interacted with in season one I'm pretty sure most of us wouldn't rank these communicators very highly, the bee and antivirus, primals present pot plant he got off Dinobot, the riot shields or even the gizmos Cheetor was using when he got teleported into the pred base all seem to have more meaningful moments and interaction between characters attached to them in my eyes and personally I would have preferred it if they left Primal wrist cover smooth if they aren't going to include the accessory with him.
    Ohhh abandoned gimmicks and Beast Wars, it's almost like a homage.

    The one thing that Cheetor and Optimus both interacted with that I want over all others is DINOBOT!

    Anyone know if Cheetors communicator band was referencing the Power Rangers' wrist communicators? I guess technically anything remotely resembling the average watch could be seen as similar to those in MMPR. They're two of my favourite 90s kids' shows so, in my mind, why not?! Beast Wars holds up a hell of a lot better to re-viewing though!

    Actually cancelled though, or postponed for another figure? I'm thinking the later, quite possibly. Hopefully.

    Good thing Dinobot is next then. Now we'll just have to all fight each other for one.
