    True dat. What's the usual sort of timeframe between MP releases? It's not something I've really paid much attention to until now.

    Suh-weeet! I'll be in Japan by next month and plan to attend the Tokyo Toy Show. Hopefully they'll have a prototype of MP Cheetor up for display for me to take snaps of!

    I hope they don't go with completely show accurate beast mode head, he always looked a bit goofy. The OG Deluxe Cheetor still kicks ass, even lacking as it is in beast articulation.

    MP Cheetor is all well and good, but we'll probably just get a lazy MP Tigatron remold out of it. Why bother?

    I was really hoping that if they did another BW MP it would be Dinobot.

    Considering that Cheetor is a cheetah, Tigatron is a tiger, and that Tigatron is much larger than Cheetor in the cartoon, I'm pretty sure they won't use the same mold for the MP regardless of what was done with the original toys.

    And what does "why bother" mean?

    Maybe their idea is that since there's already the Generations Rhinox and Rattrap, they needed a Cheetor to fill out the Maximal side. Which means that it's still possible there will be an MP Dinobot.

    Yeah!

    I woke up this morning to an official MP Inferno prototype and now this news! It's been a pretty good Saturday so far

    Not sure why they would make Micron Legend MPs, since the focus on MPs is G1 (BW is part of G1 in Japan.)

    I quit the MP line after they released Road Rage with Tracks' mold. Considering that TakaraTomy are adhering to whether or not the characters shared a mold for their original toys despite the characters' body shapes being completely different, I'm assuming that Tigatron will continue in the trend after the precedent and be a mere retool of the MP Cheetor mold.

    I'm sure it'll happen over the next several years. There seems to be a lot of support from the fans in Japan for one. The character almost beat Star Saber in the MP fan vote.

    Oh sweet lord, I took a break due to a bit of burnout, and I come back to find freaking MP Inferno and possible MP Cheetor.

    Today is a good day.

    If there is an MP Cheetor, I worry that the alt mode will be too scrawny, and thus hinder the robot mode.
