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.

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).

Images of MP 50 Togatron, God Neptune, MPM Starscream, Super Megatron and More at Hong Kong Fans Exp

Motto: "'till All Are One"
Can you believe that the last we heard of this Masterpiece Tigatron was before the COVID 19 lockdown? Well, with parts of the world getting back to normal, there was actually a comiccon that Hasbro physically attended just a few days ago. And they brought in not only their products but also the products they are importing from Takara, such as God Neptune, Super Megatron and MP-50 Tigatron. Those toys were on display and you can see images of them below. Also on display was the upcoming MP Arcee, MPM Starscream, the Quintesson Pit set and basically the entire output of the year so far. The convention in question was the Hasbro Fans Expo in Hong Kong. The images came from Toyswalker, Hobymizer, and DMS Toys Treasure on Facebook.

Is it just me, or that new Megatron look absolutely MASSIVE? Glad I preordered him.

And looking at Arcee, I can now forgive her backpack after seeing the ER and Cyberverse version. It's still big, but very compact at the same time.

I see that I'm commenting in the MP Tigatron thread. I have no interests in that figure but I can tell that the fans of the character will LOVE him. He's big, and perfect looking in both modes.

Agreed about Arcee... I just wish they’d done something about her chest. It’s not even about the size.... just the awkward shape/alignment. Starting to think it was a compromise with it being the front fender, and how they set the shoulders up. Really wish they’d tried again.

I think its more the collar that's off putting about her, she can pull off some good poses though that can hide it

I agree, the collar on Arcee is poorly done. If they'd manages to giver the top of her torso a slant up to the collar it would have looked better.

The backpack is fine for me. I know some of the 3P companies have done it better, others have done it worse. I did order the official one since I want to support the character. Actually preordered two of them to display in robot and vehicle mode.

Super stoked about Tigatron, can’t wait for him to arrive.

And you know, the note I see of MP-51, the better she looks. I’m going to plan on getting her.
Back at it again!

Tigatron might be a pass depending on how good or bad Kingdom figures are. Arcee I'll wait until a third party improves on it or actually manages to make a decent one otherwise the oversized ko generations figure isn't likely to be replaced.

Tigatron always had a much better overall aesthetic to his Cat Bot design than Cheetor. The MP only highlights that further. I was surprised he was the one to follow BA, though. In a similar engineering-sharing vein, I wouldn't be surprised if MP Tarantulas is already in the pipeline.

I'm really looking forward to Tigatron. Little Cat needs Big Cat. And Dinobot needs his philosophical foil.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.
