Ton Ton has released his review of Transformers War for Cybertron Kingdom deluxe Cheetor.

The review compares it to Rattrap, a core class figure (what you used to call Legends class) within the same line, as well as Masterpiece Cheetor. We see that they are going for a more realistic animal look rather than a cartoon model. Speaking of the comparison, the back legs in cheetah mode look even cleaner on this new version, at the cost of rather odd looking robot mode legs of course. Still, it's nice to know that the robot's feet have a place to mostly tuck into in cheetah mode. Below we included the review as well as screenshots. The Blackarachnia review should be next to stay tuned.

That's not bad, the rear cheetah legs look better than the early leak and the details look good. I like it.

They all seem to have, to my American ears, an English accent. Are they expats living in Hong Kong or China or wherever the factories are?

Typically when person learns a language they pick up the accent of their teacher. A lot of places in Asia like Hong Kong and India were under British rule or influence at some point so they tend to have slightly more British accents than places that might have had a strong American presence like Vietnam (where Hasbro's factories are). But I think the factory workers simply know who to reach out to to buy their stuff without having to resort to eBay which leaves a trail. The reviewers can basically be anywhere in the world.

Beast mode looks okay, as for robot mode, I like the head, back kibbles look from the front and the groin plate. Everything else is pretty bad. The way the cheetor head pegs in is kind of awkward looking even if it helps the Cheetor head not protrude as much in bot mode.

Shame Cyberverse didnt get a better Cheetor as it would probably have been a better alternative.

I was hoping for at least a gun or something. Whip tail is meh in my opinion. At least his shoulders are better than rat traps. I'm considering cheetor. Ol 'trap is a pass. Unless I find him on clearance just for his gun!

Not really impressed. Reminds me of the Bayformers; great alt mode, compromised bot mode. Looks ok from a distance, I suppose. Here's hoping the rest look better.

I think Cheetor's looking good. Actually not as bad as I feared. Only issue I have is now I'll have to decide which mode to display the Beast Wars figures in. :lol:

Not exactly a good idea for the Beast Wars guys who haven't had updates in years.

They look a little too simplified, IMO.
Still, I suppose it could be worse.
Speaking of which, I like your profile picture. :-P

He's not simple, he just integrated his alt mode into his bot mode - he hasn't got an entire car taped to his back, like you're used to :lol:

There seem to be a lot of complaints about Cheetor. I would have thought Beast Wars fans would be ecstatic for this. I never got into BW, but even I am impressed by this figure. Perhaps these are geared more toward G1 fans, like myself, to expand the BW fan base. Beast mode - realistic, yet well-articulated. Robot mode - badass and super posable. I guess since G1 and BW are sharing a line, they should share a similar esthetic.

If BW doesn't do well, Hasbro can always sideline them again.

I'm really surprised by the reaction here, I think this looks incredible. I don't want to become a Beast Wars completitionist, but everything I've seen so far shows they're really trying to do a proper Generations line that splits the difference between show and toy designs. I'm impressed that the cheetah head is appropriately positioned in both modes and they didn't go with a faux chest or flat head like in Cyberverse. Sometimes I just don't get what else people want.

Agreement, while, I don't like the shoulder design of rattrap, I still think he looks amazing, along with all the deluxes shown so far, I can't wait to get them all

It's WAY better than Universe Cheetor. I think it's pretty good all things considered.

I dunno if I'll get the Beast Wars guys. I might. At least this one looks good.

While I personally can't speak for anyone else, For starters I'd would've liked the tail to be articulated, It wouldn't take much, Just a couple of small joints (Maybe even bendy plastic like T30 Rattrap).
Also, I don't like how the kibble above the shoulders is sharply curved , It highlights the hollowness of the panel,
Making it look like a shellformer (I know this is a element of Cheetor's design, I just wish it was more flattened, Like the MP).
They're only small nitpicks, And other than that I don't really have any complaints, Certainly none that'll stop me from buying him. :D

I like him. Beast mode looks great, robot mode just as good, definite improvement over what we got a few years ago.

They’re certainly good looking and I’m all for them, just can’t wait to see them when they’re actually announced and revealed in full. :roll:

Believe it or not, more people in Asian countries know English than you’d think. I learned that one when I was deployed to Korea, I could hold a small conversation with most Koreans when I was there. But then again it could’ve just been region specific. :-?

I'll be getting him. He looks good. Season One Beast Wars is going back on my shelf, it seems.

Well, I'm sold. Pretty much the same as the Cyberverse Cheetor but with better articulation. I'm still eagerly awaiting some images of Airazor, I've been wanting an update of her for a long time.

On another note, have there been any rumors of a Tarantulas figure? If there is one, it'd have to be either a new mold or very extensive retool of Blackarachnia. They can't get away with doing the same mold with two different color schemes this time like they did with the originals (though it'd be cool to see that as a Selects release like Cordon and Spinout).

cheetor here is a vast improvement from his previous generations version, but he is far from perfect. it seems that cheetor really cant catch a break, as his figures including his masterpiece version have all kinds of issues. (looking at mine with his disintegrating joints and hole-y beast mode) still for a main line figure its not bad, though I feel like he needed maybe just a smattering of gold paint. the yellow here washes out the details. One thing I find neat though, is that his tail weapon isnt the only thing taken from his transmetal version. his face sculpt really (imho) looks more like his transmetal on screen face then his v1 face. the thing I do love about this guy though is the thing I loved about rattrap, which is the attempt to make the beast mode as accurate to a real cheetah as possible. dig that one.

Yeah, digging cheetor there. I like his proportion. The accidental butterfly joint due to transformation is a welcome. No giant tumor caused by uselessly feeble gimmick, yay. Only nktpick i have is that he don't get a gun. But eh, shockwave lab or someone else most likely will take care of that in due time. Overall, definitely getting him.
