Just thought you guys would like to know there's a preview up for the next Collector's Club Exclusive, Transtech Cheetor: http://www.transformersclub.com/ttcheetor11.cfm

Not my cup of tea, but I never was much of a Beast Wars fan. ;) But now all those who have dreamed of owning a yellow & black spotted Blurr (or Transtech toys) can rejoice. :lol:

So, if I join the club, I get Ramjet for "free" and I can buy Cheetor? I think they may have sold my Animated-loving self. :APPLAUSE:

Now I'm confused. Is this supposed to be the same TransTech Cheetor we've come to know? Or is this a new Animated Transtech Cheetor? :???:

Considering the fact that they're referring to it as Animated Transtech Cheetor and it's a repaint of Animated Blurr, I would say it's Animated Transtech Cheetor. ;)

No, Ramjet is not the free membership figure. The free membership figure is Side Burn. Ramjet will be available for purchase along with Cheetor.

So let me get this straight: Transtech Cheetor is, despite the Transtech name, part of the Animated continuity?
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

He looks Animated, he's an autobot not a Maximal, and he's apparently part of the Elite Guard. So everything points to Yes.

so the next time I happily admit I'm a Beast wars fan and half the fandom glare at me as though they are using the force to hurl me off a cliff, this guy will be the reason why. Nice.

Imaginative to say the least. I never liked the style Beast Machines went with, so Transtech (and this) are for me best left alone.
I do still want Blurr though...
