I've been familiar with the Terrorcons since G1 - and... those ain't no Terrorcons ;). If they were just going to have a gang of ground based evil transformers, why not give them an original faction name? By misappropriating the Terrorcon faction name and applying it to these characters, it's just irking the long time purists.

I haven't watched the movie - because, ya know - Bayverse. But I hope they at least didn't do with the "Terrorcons" what they did with the Decepticons in the TLK movie. Just gather a random gang in a heist-style montage. Then have them attack once in only one scene, get totally clobbered, then run away and never be seen again.

This isn't the first time the Terrorcon name has been used in non-G1 as seen in Energon and Prime

And the current theory is that they're using the name "Terrorcon" instead of "Predacon" for the main bad guys of this movie so that the name can align with the use of "Terrorize" like how "Maximize" does for "Maximal".

And the best thing about Transformers is adapting and changing things. So, I'm agreeable to the changes, since that's like... the whole thing.

Y'know, the more I see of this guy, the more I believe they repurposed the Studio Series' Voyager Class Sentinel Prime mold. Is it just me, or does anyone else see it too? I mean, it definitely wouldn't be the first time Has/Tak had done it, so yeah. I'm not upset about it if this is the case; I'm just curious.

Posted by william-james88 on January 20th, 2023 @ 12:40pm CST
With PVP getting stuff early, there's always talk about the provenance of the items. Well, we know there is an online marketplace in asia where several members of our community get these items early, we posted direct links to listings, like the ones from Shopee. So that bit, we know. But there was a question as to where the items on shopee came from. Well, I now read of another wrinkle to the story from Bustermaster on the TFW boards:

Chinese SNS boards are mumbling about how they're getting sent out to the KC Toy Safety "Korean Certification standards" where figures are reviewed for making sure they pass QC to be sold in the region.
We've seen this before time and time again, specially with early WFC and SS 86 they typically have a card of numbers under the figures in the pictures.


So this is another or parallel source of leaked toys. Toys, before being packaged, get sent to places in asia for review (I'd guess Korea specifically here). Now I don't know what happens to the toys after, but it's another case of these toys being out of factories and into hands that are not Hasbro's before they are ready for distribution. We don't know what other scenarios or reasons there would be, we didn't know this one.

We have for you below more images of the upcoming Transformers Studio Series deluxe Rise of the Beasts Airazor. The official images we saw earlier this week were slightly mistransformed so the images below can give you a better idea of how the beast mode could look better.
The images and video are from PrimevsPrime.
While preorders are live at all online retailers, like Amazon, many fans were able to get their copy early through asian online marketplaces like this one: https://shopee.ph/Hasbro-Transformers-L ... V06AwhRwFM

If you want a full list of the other Rise of the Beasts toys released in the Studio Series line, click this link: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... 023/47361/

If you want more details behind why we are getting two ROTB Airazors simultaneously, you can click here: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... ors/47359/

If this Airazor is really sold as a deluxe, it would be amazing because it would be like if the old deluxe size is finally back. It will be sold at current year price, but I'll take the little win that I can get.

Looking forward to a Terrorcon recolor, but would also be interested if the released her on her 90s transmetal colors. Same with Cheetor.

Although, considering we're getting Airazor, Cheetor, and Rhinox, I'd love Armada repaints to put on my Unicron shelf (and AoE Strafe for Terrorsaur?), but that seems very far-fetched.

As with Airazor, most characters in the upcoming Rise of the Beasts film will get toys in both the Rise of the Beasts toyline and the Studio Series toyline (for more info on that, click here). Now we have our first look at Studio Series voyager class Cheetor. As you can see below, it borrows nothing from his Kingdom counterpart and is a fully new mold with a design harkening back to Beast Machines. This toy will be up for preorder later today. These images come from Amazon Australia.

Yowch on Generictor, maybe a repaint with that thing...erm...whatcha call it...colors, might help. Though it still has its square head.

Think I'm prefering the non studio series figures looks so far and definitley another tick to not see the film.

Doesn't really feel like Cheetor. I complain when Bumblebee gets more annoying than he was in G1 but Cheetor is SUPPOSED to be annoying. This character will probably be competent. And he has a very- mature- build. Personally I like the mainline version better, as with Airazor. I don't know why they keep ruining the design if the pre-concepts look fine, I don't know why they have to get a perfect design just to fix ruin it in the actual movie. :michaelbay: :KREMZEEK: :HASBRO: :PLAYSKOOL: :-x :-x :-x :BANG_HEAD:

I'm really not feeling the beast toys, specially the Studio Series ones. The ROTB ones at least seem to have more interesting transformations. What little I've seen in the trailer hasn't really won me over either, honestly. I hope the movie comes out and I get to eat my words and really enjoy the Maximal's look onscreen, but I'm not very optimistic at this point. A shame, Beastformers are usually my favourite type of transformers, but these are just not hitting it for me.

That design is certainly a choice for this new Cheetor.

Though, I definitely wouldn't call it Beast Machines-inspired, not in shape or color:

If it's the blend of organic and mechanical that evokes a technorganic look, that kind of visual blending goes all the way back to the Transmetals, both 1 and 2. Or even further back to some of the Pretenders of 1988/1989.

I do love how Cheetor takes some cues from multiple bodies of his. That head has some Transtech in it; the transformation looks to use BM, TMI, and TMII in it, while he sticks somewhat close to his original body cheetah mode.

I just think the blend of so many styles into him to make him feel so fresh and new while looking great are neat.

I have adored the SS figures so far, they have a lot more of that technical detail that I always love and wish we would see more of.

The RotB toyline ones look great too, and I appreciate how both lines are sort of similar but also very different, almost like AOE Dinobots and SS Grimlock style. I appreciate it.

I'd argue that the Pretenders were more like "suited up" monsters or even Cyborgs, with a separation if you will between the angular mechanical and the curvy organic parts. The Transmetals has a clear separation between the two: mechanical Beast Mode, (semi-)organic Robot Mode (except figures like Terrorsaur). The Transmetals II I'll give you, but they also had the monstrous asymmetry as a form of being "unbalanced", and balanced blending was a key point in Beast Machines designs.

Mind you, the original Movie-verse designs already had that organic thing going, though the pieces of their alternate modes largely hide that.

Though, I definitely wouldn't call it Beast Machines-inspired, not in shape or color:


Maybe not colour, but transformation, yes. Of all the cheetor toys of old, this new one follows the beast machines one more than the others where the the cheetah stands up and replaces its head. And I see similarities in the shape for sure, with the shoulders and the parts where the cheetah spots are placed on the robot mode. even in alt ode I see the similarity, with the sleek cheetah type body retaining an organic colour scheme but with techonological components too. Cheetor's Transmetal designs were far removed from the organic cheetah design, either being fully robotic or becoming less cheetah like. When it comes to toys, Beast machines was the only time where we finally saw him with cheetah spots in alt mode along with mechanical components.

I get Transmetal 2 Cheetor vibes from this figure. I wish he had his gun. But those Spears are kind of cool

That face makes it seem like he will be older in personality. I could see this working better in a white tiger deco and be called Tigatron.

So... Cheetor being #98 fills in one gap. Scourge (Leader Class) will likely be #101
