I thought so too at first, but previous images show him looking straight ahead. And it would be odd for them to sculpt all the heads looking off to the side.

Delays could be related to very high demand for the Inferno mold. Takara's factories must be maxed out or vice versa.
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

Isn't it odd how his beast mode head is so much more expressive than his robot mode one?

I'm just loving those colors! Matt cheetah print with that brilliant metallic purple. The gold accents throughout and even the splash of pink on the gun.
This is a really excellent color scheme that's executed perfectly.

So maybe they are spending that extra time adding a Tigertron or Lio Jnr head or something to the mould for future use.

Shadow Panther would probably be the most likely reuse of the mold, since Tigatron would need to be a full upscale of the mold a la Energon Megatron/Galvatron and Super Link Galvatron/Galvatron G.

He'd also have to be an entirely new mold since a real tiger doesn't look anything like a cheetah. He'd likely be able to share the transformation, but all of the cat parts would have to be new. Shadow Panther could probably pass from a Tigatron mold, though.

A Cheetor repaint would probably just be an even more toy accurate repaint and include the bug mask.

Then that us most likely how they will do a Tigatron MP. I do hope I'm wrong on that, though.

The problem comes from the fact that despite being a redeco, the show models done Tigatron differently - heavily editing his beast mode, upping his size compared to Cheetor and in general giving him more mature characteristics. It's to the point that making him a redeco of Cheetor would be like MP Cliffjumper being a redeco of MP Bumblebee.

Yeah, Tigatron's cartoon model was bigger than Cheetor's, and his beast mode was shaped differently.

Image Image

Tigatron's beast mode has more overall mass to it. A larger head, thicker legs, a more rounded back and belly; about the only thing his and Cheetor's MPs could share is transformation engineering. The rest of Tigatron would need to be a larger mold.

Do you honestly think that Takara won't straight repaint Tigatron?

The same could be said about Bumblebee and Cliffjumper though, right?

I believe Cliffjumper is a licensing issue, but when he comes, if he comes, I expect a minor retool of bumblebee.

You do know that the real life Ferrari isn't nearly as super deformed as Cliffjumper's altmode, right?
