    Got my Waspinator yesterday. Any word on what Inferno will be like? Im curious if he will be a voyager retool of Waspinator? Just like Cheetor to Tigatron.

    Tigatron isn't a retool/upscale of Cheetor. It's similar to how Earthrise/Kingdom Wheeljack, Earthrise Runabout/Runamuck, and Earthrise Sunstreaker/Cordon/Spin-Ou all share some degree of engineering but are different molds. KBW Tigatron and KBW Cheetor just share some of the same engineering traits and some of the same aesthetics because, the source material dictated that they should. There are substantial differences though and they go far beyond an upscale/retool:

    Interesting. Seems like you understood my question though and just took it as a chance to be condescending and not answer the question.

    Just trying to share my excitement for TFs here. Thanks for reminding me how i have to proofread all my posts on a fan site meant to just be excited over toys on

    I'm at a total loss as to how providing accurate information (which I've also provided elsewhere on the board) is condescending.

    I did answer the question. Waspinator and Inferno have a far less in common than Cheetor and Tigatron did in the source material. Given that Tigatron is a completely different mold than Cheetor it's highly unlikely that Waspinator and Inferno will share any engineering beyond the beast mode head and robot chest since fire ants have a really thin thorax which means they'll probably have to skip realistic beast mode legs and use the limbs like the original toy did.

    I think it’s just a case of the fandom not settling on proper terminology yet for the kind of shared design between Cheetor and Tigatron.

    I am very confused as to why so many people have Jackpot already, my Amazon order is only slated for next year...

    Different locations get their products at different times, here in Canada he's available to ship out upon ordering.

    Did a little paintwork on Shadow Panther; I think it makes the torso proportions and color breakup look a lot better.

    Here's what he looks like out of the box in case anyone's having trouble seeing the difference:

    I gotta be honest... I've flipped back and forth between those two images like, 10 times, and I'm not seeing a difference. Help out a dense dude like me?

    Edit:

    Oh thank god.

    Its a little frustrating the first time around, but after you get used to it, its pretty impressive
    Had to look twice to see the difference, but it does make it look better:D  Still not sure about him yet, I'm pretty meh on the Cheetor mold, which I've already bought twice, and he's pretty bland imo. Might change my mind once I see it in person on shelves.
    Yeah I don't really see Inferno sharing any of Waspinator's engineering. For Tigatron it makes sense, as his transformation and robot mode is almost identical to Cheetor's, but Waspinator and Inferno aren't really that similar, except that the abdomen and bug head ends up in the same place on both of their models.

    Did I miss out on being able to buy Terrorsaur and Tigatron?
