    My reissue is coming Monday, but I wouldn't even know if there's any fixes since I no longer have the original.

    Just got my reissue in and I can confirm that he has the shoulder tabs!

    Shoulder front to back movement is just as tight as on the original so gonna have to break out the ol' soldering machine again to loosen them up a bit.

    The shoulder tabs were the improvements from Shadow Panther, correct?

    One of yes. I believe Shadow Panther also tabbed/held together better in beast mode.

    Don't ask me! Mine isn't here yet, he's in the same box as Megatron than only recently left Japan. @lord ginrai should be able to answer this.

    The reissue is definitely more sturdy and holds together better in beast mode than my original release.

    As the reissue has the new tooling for the shoulders I'm inclined to believe they are using the exact same mold as they did for Shadow Panther.

    I really want to buy this reissue, but I think I'm going to wait to see if all the issues have been fixed. Shadow panther has breakage issues as well so it doesn't instill a lot of confidence.. :(

    So I just opened up my cheetor and transformed him. Holy smokes, he is wayyyyy tighter than last time. I mean, stiff. Every joint feels super duper tight. The only one that isn't as tight as my first cheetor is the arm panels, thank god, cause they were so tight on my first one they broke. This time I feel like the arm panels are okay, but I'm going to have to be careful with basically everything else. Hopefully after a few transformations he loosens up a bit. It isn't quite "I'm going to break it it's so tight", but it's a notch or two below that. I CAN move everything, i just have to do so at the joint.

    Otherwise, the shoulder is a big improvement and everything holds together better.

    Shoulders on mine are not as tight as first release which is good.

    An enemy that appears peaceful may simply be biding it's time, waiting for the right moment to strike.

    You mean like THIS *pow*
