    Is the comparison a custom paint job?

    Definitely agree with you on the buttetfly's, those could be a lot tighter. But I'm pretty sure the Robot mode chest tabs in, you can see him point out 2 tabs and corresponding slots when he's transforming it.

    Haha, me too. Really hope these sell well so maybe we can see a Botcon TM Tigatron from the same mold. I know OpOp and TM2 megs have been tackled by PE and JX. In 2018, TransArt teased a toy accurate TM2 Megatron and that seemed like the aesthetic they were originally going for. This Cheetor design I would say is closer to Show accurate and the TM Primal is a mix between toy&show? I wonder if they will be reworking their TM2 Megatron design more inline with the show or if they will just move on from the idea now that JX is plentiful. As of now there seems to be little indication that JX will release Tigerhawk other than a reissue of Wing Dragon. As for PE OpOp, I think there is room for a competitive design.

    Anyone else wish the yellow was a little less bright? Primal looks like a display piece, Cheetor looks like a toy. Too plastic-looking.

    I'm hoping it looks better in person because I agree, the yellow is a bit too "toy yellow". Would have helped to go a smidge more orange in it

    While in NO way am I turning down MP TM Megatron... but I hope Tarantulas is next. We've got Season 1 Megatron in the official MP, I just want a more variety of predacons.

    That's fair. TM Megs is just my favorite after TM Cheetor, so that's where I'm coming from.
