I'm excited for Legends Primal. My brother & I shared the original mold as kids, and it'll be awesome having this guy in-hand again. Especially now that we're getting some really awesome Beast Wars characters in the Generations line. I just picked up Universe Cheetor for the occasion. :D

Yep. I'm a big Cheetor fan, got most of the molds so far, but the Universe Cheetor robot mode is bad. The cheetah mode is good, which is the main reason I still have him. I really really wish they make a better Generations Cheetor!

EDIT: Same exact thing with Universe Dinobot. Make a better Generations Dinobot please!

i got the henkei cheetor for essentially domestic retail price (otherwise id have probably skipped it). i can forgive the strange arms, sharukens, and quasimotto hump, but not those friggin feet. only way he looks half decent is to leave them like animal feet ala BM cheetor. but good luck standing him.

anyone else think its strange how cheetor here is a reimagining, while all other generations BW figures were updated representations?

To be fair, Cheetor was a Universe figure while Rhinox, Rattrap, and Waspinator are Generations figures. Similar but still separate lines operating under similar but still different mindsets.

Yeah, there's about a 5 year gap between the lines.

Not his deco.

Plus since he came after Cheetor, he might have been an example of a lesson learned from their making Cheetor.

Well, his hands are not correct, and his body doesn't like to fit together in robot mode. His tail isn't correct either and won't hold together in dino mode. I have him and he's doesn't hold up good at all.

Given the lead time it takes to make these figures, I doubt that this is true. Besides, the transformation for Universe Dinobot appears to be very similar to Transmetal Dinobot.

his hands are clawed like in the show.
the bodies on mine fit fine.
his tail emulates the spinning blade thingy.
henkei dinobots colors are spot on.

everyones entitled to their opinions, but henkei dinobot at least pulls off both modes. bot is pretty accurate. raptor looks like a raptor. but i never said we didnt need a new dinobot, in fact ive been begging for a generations dinobot for years.

Overquoting to say that I too, have Universe Dinobot. He overshadow the original Beast Wars by far, both in show accuracy and transformation. Compared to the horrible cheetor, complaining about Universe Dinobot is just nitpicking.

BTW, I'd really want to see a Generations Cheetor. It seem NO Cheetors at all are perfectly good, or are completely bad. If there is one character that desperately need an update, it is him.

I have Transmetal 2 Dinobot, Beast Hunters Ratchet, and had Beast Wars Grimlock. That's enough Dinobot for me I think. :P Though owning the original would be cool.

I bought the pink original a great while ago off Ebay after seeing the complete BW series. It was nice, but those clear feet on the dino chest was one hell of a bad design choice. Still, he was quite fun.

Some years later, I bought Universe Dinobot from a local collector for cheap and found that for now, he's the defenitive Dinobot. So good!

Just a few months ago, I bought a huge lot of broken and scrap TFs to make customs because that lot contained an unbroken but incomplete G2 Megatron. By digging further in, I found 2 figures that were 100% complete, even with their weapons! Thgey were just dis-assembled. Once I put them back together, I ended up with Transmetal Dinobot (white) and a BW Dinobot repainted in more "realistic" colors (don't remember if he have his mutan mask). I was very pleased. Transmetal Dinobot is a toy with lots of issues, but he look nice and he's fun to fiddle with. That new color scheme for the original Dinobot, without the silly clear parts, improve the toy significantly. So I traded Pinkie away.

Just to get back on topic, did I mention it would be cool to have a VOYAGER Generations Dinobot that would be 100% show accurate in both modes, with modern engeneering and all? We need that, yes.

Just want to add something. Take a look at the original Arcee Kobayashi made. I read somewhere that giving 30th Arcee wheels ruined her, Well this Arcee has a set of wheels too!

Yuki's at it again, firing up his camera and tweeting his newest in hand previews of upcoming Legends figures.

Up first? Cloud Roadbuster/Energon Ironhide.
Followed by a comparison of the Hasbro and Takara versions of Tankor!
A nice single shot of Brainstorm in vehicle mode, ready to be piloted by Arcana, and finally, a humorous wrap up to this collection of photos as Rattle/Rattrap takes off with AoE Hound's firearms, so he can go on a hunting spree.
