This was probably metioned but I just realized that the eye are NOT articulated. Instead, you have different pair of eyes to combine wit the different head expressions

Oogly eyes and face masks suited for animatronics. Yep, I'm scarred for life now.

So has anyone figured out how the beast mode's mid-back (where the robot elbows are) locks together, or is it not locking just A Thing for this figure?

As far as I can tell it doesn't lock. There's a little bit of wiggle at the joint used for transformation.

It doesnt lock. But I think thats wanted since it adds poseability in beast mode. Plus the standard pose has gravity bring it down so that it doesnt need locking.

Having played around with him for a while, turning him back into Cheetah mode is really awkward and fiddly.

I still can't get it to look right.

Robot mode is fantastic though. Seems he was meant to have extra hands at some point. His hands just pop off too easily otherwise.

A pic with his original self:

Unproduced accessories for MP Cheetus found!

They're clip on versions of the long-range comm link that Rhinox made in Episode 3, "The Web". The smaller one is for Cheetor's robot mode arm, and the fatter one is for Cheetor's Beast Mode foreleg.

Cancelled Comm Link Accessory Shown for Masterpiece Beast Wars Cheetor

Shots of a Masterpiece Cheetor prototype have emerged online showing an accessory that was absent from his release. In the shots below, you will see a comm link that was originally made for the toy. It calls back to the long-range comm link that Rhinox made in Episode 3, "The Web". The smaller one is for Cheetor's robot mode arm, and the fatter one is for Cheetor's Beast Mode foreleg. Thanks to Sabrblade for informing us of these images that were posted by STFU and Primal Sabbath on TFW2005.

new thats what that slot in his arm was for. optimus has a similar slot in his forearm, which im sure is for the scanner he had when megatron asked for a truce near the end of season 1. probably cancelled for similar reasons.

How confident are you that that is real? I really want to news it, but the non-authentic bug has bitten me and I am a bit bitter and hesitant right now. I know the figure came with a diecast Optimus Primal option in place of a coin, but I can't find a single peep about a coin anywhere else either

Would love to see the packaging that the coin came in! Any chance you can share pictures of that so we can news this?

.... personally I'm 100% sure it's legit because I trust my source. And seriously, who would fabricate a brand new coin?

And all I got is the coin. No packaging :(

The coin would come from Hasbro Asia though, no? Takra Tomy doesnt issue coins.

That is correct. All of the coins come from Hasbro Asia, not Takara Tomy.
