Except that that representation is a cat-bird mashup thing that doesn't really show him as a separate entity :P
The original regular Tigatron toy's not a horrible representation, mind you, cream-tinged though it is. There's a show-colors Takara version as well, although you'd be dropping MP levels of money on a Beast Wars Deluxe.

Energon Optimus firetruck drone; super mode hat
Ultra-class Optimus Primal missiles, left back panel, mutant mask
Combiner Wars Dead End or Offroad HFG, Breakdown HFG
Armada Thundercracker missile
Armada Optimus front left trailer strut, cheekguards
ROTF Jetfire "JTFR" Panels
Armada Downshift
RID Ultra Magnus missiles
Vector Prime Cyber Key
Armada Jolt, Thunderclash, Clench
RID Galvatron foot/dragon head, 1x launcher/sword hilt

Except i am OK with Tigerhawk being both Tigatron and Airazor, they are what i consider a Fusion combiner, having them like that is the same as having a combiner and all of it's components, to me at least.

I'm not really a fan of how the original toy looks, and this one is great, but he's just not a character I feel the need to have, as great looking as he is

I agree. It helps that we already had an idea of them in three dimensions.

It also helps that since Beast Wars was in 3D, Takara's current design lead isn't trying to make the perforce 3-dimensional toys look like dumbed-down 2-dimensional images (which is what's happening to G1 MPs now).
