    Is it just me or does Cheetor (and Tigatron kinda) look a lot like the RED figure? Not just because of the wide stretched cheetah head either, there's just a lot of the details that remind me of it.

    You'd think they'd wait till the toys were actually done if they want to be extremely toy accurate.
    Even UT did that.

    I mean, I'd say it looks to me like the 90s cartoon cheetor, slightly altered and styleized. The same is true for RED.

    Do we need to wait another 25 years for show-accurate versions of this line-up?

    This makes it easier to look up. Thanks for finding shorter version.

    The shot is from a downward angle, which skews perspective, plus he is further back than Primal and Rhinox. Imagine tilting the image forward to a head on perspective and bring Tigatron to the foreground and he should be about as tall as Rhinox

    He was always kind of skinny compared to Rhinox and Dinobot

    I can't tell with the picture. But when the Voyager toy comes out, I wonder if they will keep is Whisker face.

    Wow! They really botched it hard, huh? I mean, in only 20 seconds, they got about a billion things wrong. That's almost impressive. I'll be glad when this WFC trilogy is over. Hopefully Hasbro learns their lessons and doesn't hire Rooster Teeth again. Seriously, I wonder what kind of shoestring budget they were working with for this show? And how much of that went into Warner Bros' pockets?

    The animation looks good, but damn Optimus primal’s voice needs a lot of work. Also

    I'm kind of glad they gave these characters actual character models rather than just 100% straight copies of the Hasbro cad models. While it was a neat idea, I never liked how they kept the awful backpacks and hollow spaces that a lot of the figures have. Those are fine on a physical toy but shouldn't be there in the show version imo

    Ok so what the hell is going on with the WfC trilogy's animation models?

    In Siege the animators were so accurate to the toys that you can see the wheels on Megatron's legs even though he is a HOVER tank.

    Now in Kingdom none of the Maximals look like there figures. Rhinox look like his T30 figure and Tigatron is literally just an upscaled Cheetor colored white. Hell the original Beast Wars cartoon at least gave Tigatron a slightly different head.

    EDIT: Looking at the group shot again, the models appear to be 100% based off of that concept art that keeps getting posted. Cheetor looks just like his RED figure. I am just so confused by this trilogy, there is just no consistency. Other than poor writing that is.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with the beasts being a relatively late addition to Kingdom?

    Earthrise had the same problems though. The coneheads had comically oversized heads and Exhaust they didn't even bother giving him his actual head.
