    It’s Blacharachnia’s device but Tigatron is the only one to handle it and look badass while doing so. Honestly, there’s nothing specific accessory-wise to go with unless we just grab whatever random object he happened to interact with for however brief a moment. Megatron held a toothbrush once for less than a minute so everything is fair game.

    Oh I agree, I wouldn't be surprised at all if he came with a Sonic Emitter, it would fulfil the 'that thing from that one episode' accessory much like Megatron's toothbrush or Blackarachnia's visor... that is all the rage these days after all.

    Despite the robot forms looking similar, and both of course being cats, their beast forms are fundamentally different. Remember, they're making these figures to be nearly perfect representations of the 3D models from the show. And the 3D models themselves are accurate to the real life animals (size notwithstanding).

    Cheetahs are long and slender (as Cheetor is), and tigers are much bulkier and larger looking (as Tigatron is). If you were to put both beast forms side by side, I'm sure you'd see it. This is definitely no mere upscale or retool. This Tigatron figure should have a very different transformation.

    I was going to suggest Snowstalker but I see she was already mentioned. :p  Well, he did freeze Scorponok in The Spark, so maybe an icy blast effect for the gut gun?

    Oh wait, maybe he needs some hacker gear from when he broke into Megatron's files in Before The Storm; maybe include a transforming 'rubic's cube' Megatron head he can play with in his spare time. :D

    We have no idea yet what accessories Tigatron will come with. Dinobot was 4000 yen more. Tigatron is much closer to Dinobot's size than Cheetor, and there is no shared engineering.

    Looking through the images, Tigatron is undoubtedly more complex than cheetor.

    Wow at the retail price. If he can be had for $160-ish shipped at Amazon Japan, that's more reasonable.

    Looking forward to seeing official pics that show off his accessories.

    Was never a fan of the brain design of the gun but it is accurate

    OMG CANNOT WAIT FOR TIGATRON. Came here from Sixo’s Instagram—couldn’t believe it! Elements for his transformation might be similar to Cheetor’s, but he’s got some extra parts and poseablity in beast mode it looks like, so maybe the transformation might be a lot different than we expect.

    I hope so. $220 is too much.

    Oh yeah, he looks awesome. Insta-buy... when his price is more reasonable.

    No, could happen soon though, as they already decided on his number and price.

    I have realized my mistake, and am now much more excited for this figure. :)
