I'm starting to get a very bad parts forming feeling on the Beast head / robot chest of this figure.

I'm pretty sure it won't be a parts-former, TT's clever like that, but I understand you're anxiety, I too am hoping it turns out perfectly

Take solace in examples of their wizardry: Inferno, Ironhide, Hotrod, Prime, Wheeljack, Bee, ect. All of them have either remarkable engineering or faux pieces masking those for the sake of aesthetics.

Remember when we posted a tiny low res image of TakaraTomy Transformers Masterpiece Beast Wars Cheetor from Figure King Magazine? Well now we can show you a proper pic! He apparently has multiple cat faces leading people to wonder what "Inferno Ladder Magic" awaits us because he clearly has a different cat head in his robot mode. See what conclusions you can come to by checking out the pic below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

Huh, guess the chest head is faux kibble - was wondering about that. When I saw the blurry pics I thought it might have just been a neutral beast-face option for robot mode. I suppose it fits the "show accuracy is king" ideology, and it would allow us to leave the angry/spooked faces on the cheetah head without making the robot mode look odd. Natural extension of MP Optimus having different truck grills for vehicle and robot modes, I guess.

(Personally, I'm more into the cast's appearances after the relevant characters got their Transmetal forms, but c'est la vie.)

If its a case like Primes two grills, I'll be okay, but if its part swapping on a MP, this will be an easy pass.

Cheetor's a yellow kid appeal character who was the target audience's gateway character. Even though Dinobot had a more meaningful role from an objective narrative standpoint, an argument could be made for Cheetor being a more subjectively popular character with the show's target audience of children back in the day.
And that target audience from back in the day are adults now. And this is a line geared towards adult collectors.

Two things we should keep in mind; firstly, this is being produced from a Japanese perspective, and the English-speaking fan favorites might not line up perfectly with what Takara's primary market wants.

Secondly, Beast Wars was released in Japan in this order; Beast Wars season 1, the two BW animes, then Beast BW seasons 2 and 3 (as "Beast Wars: Metals"). By that time interest in Beast Wars had started to wane, and a lot of the big stuff that cemented Dinobot as a fan favorite happened in season 2.

Judging from factors such as the robot chest's ears not having earholes like the beast head's ears do, and the slightly more inflated nature of the chest-head, my best guess would be that the robot mode beast head covers the actual beast mode head. (That, and if Takara was embracing part swapping for BW masterpieces, we probably would have seen clip on bits to cover Primal's visible robo-kibble in beast mode.)

I like the MP-1/MP-10 "two truck grills" analogy, as it makes me wonder if one of the beast mode cheetah heads can hide inside the core of the robot mode torso behind the fake cheetah head.

*shrug* Most of the original Transmetal toys for the characters who became Transmetals in the show were already the stuff of near perfection anyway. ;)

If anything, I'd like a TM Rattrap whose beast mode kibble backpack could rotate 180 degrees to have the wheels behind his robot mode rat head shoulders. And maybe just reissues of TM Primal, TM Cheetor, and TM Tarantulas with more show-accurate decos (like their Japanese toys) and new headsculpts with more show-accuracy and (in the cases of Primal and Cheetor) less "Ninja Turtle snarling".

Hey, I can dream :P Although they're visually very accurate, Transformers engineering has really advanced in the past two decades - would be a shame to see the Transmetals cursed by their own show accuracy to never receive updates.

TM Rattrap's actually the one I've thought about the most (currently customizing one). One of the weaknesses of the mold is how a significant portion of the rat's butt is a hollow brick - open that up, add some basic compression to the arms/legs, and we can stuff Rattrap's robot bits more efficiently into the rat mode. This would clean up his messy undercarriage, but could also lead to a larger robot mode in relation to his rat mode, meaning the rat head pauldrons would be closer to the show's shrunken proportions.

That, and Rattrap needs half a dozen more accessories :P Have the wheels pop off as shields, his gun, explosive charges, spare gun or two from the Coming of the Fuzors showdown...

Yeah, I am pretty sure there is no parts swapping and that the robot mode beast head is incorporated in the toy. because we saw all the accessories and a fake cheetah head wasnt one of them, so thus it must be integrated.

Speaking of fake beast heads for chests, I really feel that is the only way to do dinobot properly, what do you guys think? Man, i just want an MP Dinobot so bad.

I feel it'd be the best way to do a lot of them, Rattrap and Waspinator included. When the beast mode heads formed the chest, in the cartoon they tended to look a lot more flattened down than could possibly be replicated in plastic form. If the Beast Wars MP line continues, I'd personally expect to see a lot of faux beast mode chests.

A faux chest is fine with me, as long as it is integrated into the toy.

I think it might be easier to name which characters would be able to use the actual beast head instead of a fake one robot mode.

Besides Primal, of course.

Well, I'm pretty sure they won't be able to do a fake with Megatron...

Megatron, Terrorsaur, Scorponok, maybe Rhinox.
Dunno about Tarantulas.

So basically one definite yes, two maybes and two guys which are probably the last ones people want from an MP Beast Wars line.

Why would we be talking about Super Ginrai in the Masterpiece Cheetor thread?

There is not much talk here because this is thread for Cheetor.
However, we have not seen those photos you speak of so if you have them, please send them to us by clicking on the link in my signature so we can news them.
