    Case closed!
    You'll take your orange Tigertron repaint and you'll like it!

    ...or you could get Ravage remold, which definately has Tigertron cat face...which you like.

    Oh I am 100% down with an orange Tigatron.

    It’s just disappointing to me that Hasbro could’ve taken that new Tigatron voyager mould, remoulded the face to remove the hair on the cheeks (and maybe other slight tweaks? I haven’t been able to get a real good look at him yet) and we would’ve had a pretty passable-looking toy panther. The current Cheetor mould is just too scrawny to be a close representation of a panther. I had the same issues with the MP.

    The problem here is that Tigatron was originally going to be a deluxe retool of Cheetor and Polar Claw was going to be a voyager release. When they decided to make Tigatron a voyager so that he wasn't a retool of Cheetor (and thus bumping Polar Claw into limbo) the slot left open to them was a Cheetor retool. So, Shadow Panther became the Cheetor retool instead. It was a matter of the line-wide budget basically. They had no space for a Tigatron retool in the voyager price point, but they did have the budget for a different retool when they bumped Tigatron up a price point instead of him being Cheetor with a new head.

    I wasn’t aware Tigatron was originally just going to be a retool of Cheetor. What a… cat-astrophe… that would’ve been.

    “Darkarachnia” sounds lazy, they just replaced “Black” with “Dark”. Not to mention her design, Unicron just gave her a new paint job. I know it’s supposed to be a homage to a BW episode, but they could’ve done a little more.

    Maybe, but it is a one time thing for a card and will likely never come up again.

    lmao did they really go with making Blackarachnia the tallest Deluxe Predacon? What a blunder!

    Unicron: Dinomus, I shall provide you with a new body.
    Unicron, also: You get a new name, Darkarachnia.
    Darkarachnia: And?
    Unicron: AND NOTHING

    I doubt even a retool. Probably just a repaint like in the original toy line.

    Tigers might be pantheras, but not panthers. And panthers is what this is about, especially according to your first post above.
    AND pantheras are NOT black! So you just proved yourself wrong.:gen069: 
    And panthers still look more like cheetahs than tigers.

    Poor Tarantulas still getting no love. At this point, I'll even accept them just head swapping the Blackarachnia mold, removing the boobs and repainting the rest!

    I need my OG Predacon crew!
