    You say "cancelled", I say "included with future repaint".

    What the hell is a \"Cheetus\"? It\'s what Wilford Brimely always says in that advert,  \"you too can get diacheetus\"?  :D  Don\'tya mean \"Cheetor\"?

    "Cheetus" is the Japanese name for Cheetor. Being a Takara-Tomy product, the packaging references the Japanese name.

    Agreed on all points, I'm really not that bothered these were left out, cancelled or whatever. However it's a real shame they didn't remove the ports/notches for them. We've got the downsides of having these accessories without actually getting them.

    The added accessories would have been cool, but nothing to get uptight over. Like others have said, I bet they get released with a future repaint.

    Addressing the \"useless accessory only seen in one episode\" argument....you do realize the G1 Masterpieces come with a PLETHORA of those useless accessories, right? Grapple, Inferno, Ironhide, Ratchet, Megatron and Hot Rod immediately come to mind.

    Maybe they'll include the communicator with Rhinox since he made it. Cheetor can't be trusted with it anyway.

    Ha, yup I was going to mention that. There is also a precedent for repaints coming with accessories meant for the original deco, Wheeljeck's Immobilizer and Bumblebee's jetpack for example.

    Ah, but see those characters have far less distinctive moments. For example, Grapple coming with his miniature solar tower makes sense given how that's basically the only episode that ever focused on him. Ditto accessories used in TF:TM, which is pretty damn memorable among G1 fan for obvious reasons.

    Plus otherwise the G1 MPs wouldn't have a ton of stuff to come with, wheras the BW MPs have a plethora of faces to replicate how expressive the characters were.

    I would consider it a memorable gadget as it was basically the first gadget we saw in the series. First one I can remember. But I haven't watched BW part 1 and 2 in a while.
    We also learned a lot more about Cheetor and his characteristics in that episode. Or at least I did.
    Either way, I hope eventually we'll get these accessories and the missing Primal accessory out of a future MP release. I just think it makes sense for them to release them all with Rattrap if they even get that far.
    I think if Dinobot has one of these mysterious tab holes on him in one or more places then we can safely rule out coincidence. But right now, I think we're a bit past coincidence honestly.

    More interested in the ease with which the hands remove personally. Would have loved extra posing hands etc.

    Wait and see if they come with tigertron, this isn\'t the first time a mp testshot that had unused accessories that are gang molded.

    They won't fit on Tigatron.

    Yeah, for a proper Tigatron I think the beast mode legs would have to be remolded.
    But Shadow Panther? Maybe. We'll see as time goes on I suppose.

    Hope the accessories on the green prototype are somehow released in a future MP.

    They'll probably come with Tigertron.

    I'm sorta a sucker for these little things.
    I'm just now looking to pick up a KO of Exhaust just because I want Wheeljack's toy launchers on him, and you gotta get frikken Exhaust to get them.
    AND I'm gonna have to get a godamn Loudpedal just so that I can give Tracks his cool toy-based head with battle mask.
    It's kinda a PITA, but at least Cheetor's is truly skippable.

    Watching episode 3 again I realize The Comm Link is a pretty justifiable accessory and Rhinox does interact with it at the start of the episode. So maybe these coming with a new mold is just as likely as a repaint, either way I'm not fussed but an interesting thing about this gizmo is it detached from his cheetah leg and found his robot mode arm after his transformation and latched on there. That's some pretty cool Transformer specific technology right there.

    Then again a port on Cheetors robot arm isn't present on the final version and that makes me think these accessories have been abandoned and if that's the case it would have been nice if these ports where filled in.

    The smaller comm link piece doesn't have a tab. It just pressure clicks on. More like slides on and off really, while sort of following the contours of his robot arm. Interestingly enough the test shot has the slot filled in. Where on the mass produced toy it's opened.
