    Cheetor is a very nice addition to the Kingdom deluxe line. Cheetah mode looks really really good but pose ability is somewhat limited in the design. I love the more realistic look vs toon/toy of it. Robot mode has much more pose ability. Hate that he didn't come with his classic gun but a tail whip/scythe instead. Rumor is gun will be im RED but he can hold any 5mm weapon you may have. This is Beast Wars returned and this character is a must have if it was your thing. He seems to be getting a lot of early flak but it is a good toy . 20201127_125616.jpg 20201127_125359(1).jpg

    Nice pics!

    I've never understood the out the bat hate, I thought he looked great from the start! I'm tempted to see what the Netflix one looks like.

    Some people just hate Beast Wars because "stoopid animals not kool cars!"

    Personally I think he looks really, really good! I'm ok without the gut gun because I feel if they tried to incorporate it into the beast mode he'd be very potbellied. I see this as an homage to his TM form.

    Is there any way for the legs on the back to peg together, or do they just sit back there and you can pose them a bit?

    Actually in my case it’s more “He’s too small! I want him bigger!”

    Notice just so people don't have to post this when the toy comes out in retail: BE CAREFUL WHEN TRANSFORMING HIM. The cheetah neck is very thin and prone to stressing and breaking. This hasn't happened to me (hell, I haven't even ordered Cheetor (and considering this issue, I doubt I will)), but I know people are getting theirs from a variety of places and once the figure becomes more widely available, this'll probably happen to lots of copies.

    I'm curious how he scales with 2014 Rattrap. And honestly, while there is a lot of paint on the figure, it still looks plain. The gold is noticeable in it's absence.

    Wish the blue was darker, but he is a very nice figure.

    The shoulders just look terrible from any view other than straight on, and the torso essentially looks like a tube with a cheetah head hanging on it. I had high hopes of getting a really solid mainline Cheetor at last, but apparently that is not going to happen just yet. I will admit cheetah mode is tight, and at least I have that.

    Don't have mine yet, but based on pics, he doesn't look like a bad toy, but the bar's definitely been raised of yet and he might be falling a bit short.

    That aside, I find it very strange that in a line otherwise really committed, maybe even over-committed, to accuracy, he doesn't have either of his original toy's weapons, especially his iconic "gut gun."

    Same. If I'm not an idiot and don't forget, I might hold out on getting him in the hopes a better painted Netflix version is released in the future, otherwise I'm gonna have to get a pin puncher and customize him myself. Still got a can of metallic blue lacquer from another project I can use. Maybe I'll try out some plastic dyes to see if I can get the yellow closer to his masterpiece color.

    Totally agree!! It's almost like Cheetor was by a different designer than the others. I always felt the same about Studio series 05 Optimus who stole most of the transformation from Prime series Optimus and was not nearly as accurate like the others prompting the remold version a year later. I still wish they make another Studio series mold for him that actually is more up to par. Hopefully at least Netflix Cheetor gets the colors better

    He is such a weird figure to be honest he seems to be a figure from the unicron trilogy or universe 2.0, been honest they have to prioritize the robot mode over the chettah that was what made the original one so good, if i was hasbro i will just use the original transformation and poolish details for been more accurate

    The most visible problem (?) is the weirdly designed shoulder joint, which making him looks like a malnourished with long arms, tbh.

    Regarding gut gun, I can see 3rd party making a replacement hand with gut guns, one that will be stored covering the hand and the underside of Cheetor.

    This guy doesn't look the greatest, but he feels surprisingly nice. He's the shittiest Kingdom figure so far and he's still great.

    Some of the clicks he makes when you transform him scare me. Sounds like bits snapping off.

    He's a great figure! He could be the only one that I get from Kingdom but I might get Cyclonus.
