    Yup, hence his nickname, "Big Cat" ;)

    Yes! The size compared to Cheetor is spot on! (Pardon the pun)

    Air Razor should come next. They’re such a cute couple. But for real though the predacons could use a few numbers.

    This reassures me that Tarantulas is around the corner.

    Yes, we could definitely use another Pred after this. I'm getting more and more confident we'll see the entire season 1 cast. As long as we keep buying em, they'll keep making em :D

    Seeing this is a heavy retool of Cheetor makes me hopeful, because Cheetor himself I don’t particularly like handling.

    Also, I'm happy that his beast mode head ends up on his chest; it always felt wrong for me to force the soft whiskers on Cheetor into his chest cavity.

    It’s a 100% retool of Cheetor. Nothing remains of the Cheetor original. Tigatron is bigger than Cheetor and every part that looks the same is also bigger.

    I know, it's not that I meant that they took Cheetor and retooled him, but they obviously based Tigatron on him, as they should. So some elements are bound to be similar, transformation included.

    Sweet. I'm always down for more Beast Wars masterpiece figures.

    In before someone complains that MP-50 should have been someone "special" (special and G1, of course).

    He looks to be the best Beast Wars Masterpiece yet, and that's saying something. They really outdid themselves here and once again to any doubters - TakaraTomy doesn't cut corners when it comes to design. He's the proper size, proper head, proper everything.

    I agree we need more Predacons (and Decepticons). Also this should lay to rest the idea that the numbers are important at all - they aren't. They just release what they want, which is pretty cool. These lines being unpredictable is definitely part of how they've been able to sustain interest.
