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? :???:

Half-right.

Side Burn is the freebie. Ramjet and Cheetor will be available as the TFCC's 2011 store exclusives.

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.

An ugly design in an ugly style with ugly colors. Didn't some versions of Cheetor look not crud at some point?

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

Dang. I want Cheetor and Ramjet. Don't really care about Side Burn.

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

This may be the first time you've actually gone after a toy I don't even own yet. :lol:

That ain't Transtech Cheetor. I love Transtech Cheetor, and that ain't Transtech Cheetor. That's Transtech-esque ANIMATED Cheetor, pure & simple.

This actually looks pretty good! I hadn't been expecting to like it very much, but since I'm hoping to join the club anyway for Sideburn, I might get this.

I've got no interest in this figure, sorry.

I think this is a pretty cool redeco! As an animated fan and a fan of some quirky TFs, this fits both. Very cool!

I like his design. But too much green, in my opinion. I might make this my backup avatar.... nah, I'll just keep the one I have right now. I like the current one. ;)
