    The new Cheetor mold is just bad, a downgrade from the original/vintage Cheetor mold and doesn't even come close to the MP mold.

    Haha yes, he'll be getting the neon paint treatment. The gaudy 90's color schemes give me all the nostalgia.

    i have Deep Cover on pre-order from Pulse but I will probably get this one, as well, because I'm an Idiot. lol. the splatter paint doesn't seem as bad as Netflix Sideswipe was.

    Like Megatron, I f**ked up and bought the regular Cheetor. The metallic blue looks nice.
    Is this reveal for the Walmart countdown? Kinda underwhelming if it is.

    Nothing I need out of this batch. I do like this Cheetor better than the regular Kingdom one. If I was buying the new BW figures, this would be my Cheetor. But I'm sticking with the original 90's mold Cheetor.

    That's how most of us serious collectors work...

    "Why did you buy another figure with almost the exact same deco?"
    "Um... Because I'm an idiot.":confused: :oops:

    Well, I\'m getting 3 of these deluxes I think. Cheetor to replace Kingdom, probably Ironhide as a new character, and I love Deep Cover, but since I have the selects coming,  the blue one\'s going to be pre-earth clampdown in my house. Gonna get \"Skyquake\" out of the voyagers and I am going to try resisting Primal, but we will see. That said, unlike the first 2 waves, there\'s no one I\'m going to be heartbroken not to get so no preordering, no checking multiple stores or any of that nonsense.

    they clearly have run out of ideas when they start doing a "sparkless" (i.e. bland) version of several characters.

    Deep Cover looks okay, but I think I prefer the regular one, so I'll stick with that pre-order. The only one that really interests me from this wave is Cheetor, but if it turns out I can't get him, I want lose sleep over it. The Kingdom One would be good enough.

    I was a little underwhelmed at first, but now kinda feeling it.  There\'s some fun army builders in here.  I loved the deco in SIEGE and love adding more in that style.  I wish they retooled a bit more, The army drone could have had even some minor alterations to make it look less like \"Gray Ironhide\" but it\'s still cool nonetheless.  Looking forward to the Leader.....good job.

    How goddamn close did they come to a black Diaclone Ironhide? AND they botched Deep Cover's deco?

    God damn it...


    EDIT: didn't realize there were two Deep Covers, I'm at peace with it now...

    I’ve got Selects Deep Cover ordered, but I have a strong suspicion that if I see this one in-store, I’ll buy it.
    I don’t see anything else that’s very tempting among the deluxes.

    Love how we've come full circle to just making up random crap like UT power-up decos but now it's ~premium~

    Is this a joke? The original Cheetor toy was mediocre even for the time it was released with bad proportions in both beast and robot modes, awkward articulation and a beast head that hindered the look of the robot head.
