    I'll even go as far as saying that Tigatron's tiger head with it's mouth open looks less like roaring and more like.. dazed and confused.


    And yeah, that's all said with him currently in tiger mode for me too. I see he looks just fantastic in tiger mode in the one pose that works.

    Yup, he looks almost Disney-like in his vacuous slightly 'derpy' expression regardless of how one positions his eyeballs.

    I mean, I read your post, and I think this is a fair assessment.

    While the Tiger mode is exceptionally accurate to the CG model, if you don’t like that CG model you’re not going to like the tiger mode. I’ll also agree that the rear legs are weak but add that they’re weak in spite of the over complicated transformation. They look only marginally better than Cheetor’s rear legs IMO, despite being fives times more complex.

    While I haven’t personally found the tiger mode comes untabbed from posing, as I actually find the tabs solid enough that getting the tiger apart is mildly stressful, the forelegs are tight enough that I can see them “winning out” against the tabs when posing, especially the way they all feed back into the panels attached to the legs themselves. Mine’s legs just happen to be a bit looser than the tabs’ strength, but still not as smooth to pose as I’d like.

    Your criticisms are fair and you’re absolutely entitled to your opinion. Just because the majority like this toy doesn’t mean you have to.

    The aforementioned board member contacted me.

    Unfortunately a deal could not be struck.

    He or she is not willing to sell parts, just the extra figures.

    Oh well c'est la vie!

    If anyone is interested I posted a video review of this guy! Any feedback is welcome as I am still getting started with this stuff.



    I still love this figure. I personally don't really have too many issues with this one, such a solid release and definitely one of the best MP Beast Wars figures.

    He just left China's airspace, so I'm hoping to know in a week or two!
    The pics & videos I've seen look REALLY good!
    Looking forward to comparing them both myself, side by side!

    I wonder if an orange repaint will be released at some point. I love the white siberian tiger motif but would also like a bengal variant. Any other takers?

    It lacks the gorgeous grainy matte paint job in beast mode, but instead is just bare shiny white plastic. I'd definitely recommend going with the official over a KO.

    I'd love an orange one as a new character and a rival or comrade to Shadow Panther.

    Agreed, the jungle warrior is adequate considering the price point but the short cuts in quality are readily apparent. I've been in the market for a tiger bot for two months and I've had a lot of missed opportunities and people recommending the KO to me which I have no interest in, any suggestions where I can pickup the official figure from a vendor at a reasonable price?

    Not sure how much you're looking to spend, but I see him here, and you can get 3% off for the rest of the month

    Just saying that they look like an imitation cheap tf ko from the 80's that they were trying to pass of as tfs.

    Aside from the 3d modeling being shit back then, the designs themselves weren't all that great tbh. The only ones I can think of that looked goid were that white dinobot, dragon megs and when tigertron merged and became flying tigertron. Most others were truly bad lol.

    You can like whatever you want, just my 2 cents.
