For those who watched the first season of Netflix's Transformers series, do you remember a part where the autobots go to the Sea of Rust and are attacked by a sparkless (aka zombie) Decepticon that looks like Barricade? Well if not, then we have an image to serve as a refresher below so that you can see what this new toy is referring to. Kremzeek reviews has a video review up for this sparkless Barricade toy. It is part of the Walmart exclusive third wave of Netflix deluxe figures. There should be more sparkless themed figures coming, though we have yet to see them.

Looks pretty good to me although I think the Arms and legs need to be the same rust style as the rest of it.

Yeah, it seems like they blew the paint budget and figured it was good enough as it is.

Still like it, though.

I like it better this way. Rusted painted metal doesn't just turn to a rust color, it fades, cracks, and peals. The multi color faded look seems more realistic to me, like it degraded in different ways.

I find the molding intriguing. Just looking at the arms, Prowl and Smokescreen have shoulders and forearms that are the same color, the rest of the arms are black. Barricade's shoulders are black, but the rest of the arm is lavender. Bluestreak has dark gray shoulders and forearms, red biceps, and light gray fists. Then Sparkless here has shoulders and forearms the same color and biceps and fist the same color. What the heck is the parts layout on this mold?

Transformers Netflix Cheetor is such an odd release since the differences with the mainline Kingdom version is rather minimal as you can see below and it has even less paint apps. The best part is the more metallic and deeper blue but it is less abundant than the power blue found on the mainline version. Aside from that, the yellow plastic seems more golden on the Netflix version. This figure is part of the third wave of deluxe Transformers Netflix figures which also includes a Siege Ironhide redeco (into a Quintesson troop builder), a rusty Barricade, and an alleged rusty Deep Cover. These should be out by summer 2021. The images below were sent to us from a source which wished to remain anonymous.

Yeah, Netflix Cheetor looks much better. I'm glad I waited.

The changes might be minimal with fewer paint apps, but that metallic blue really brings out his face and the lack of blue on his legs allows the robot legs to blend with his cheetah form better. I’d say the changes are a plus, especially since I don’t have him yet.

What has been scarce is the Wave 2 Voyager sets. I think half of the Walmarts in my area got one or two cases each, which is 2x Soundwave and 2x Optimus Prime. Never found Soundwave, but managed to get an Optimus Prime before they were all gone in a matter of days.


I’ve been to Walmart way more times than I would normally go hunting for bee. I definitely haven’t seen well stocked shelves, though there have been the occasional Netflix figures, with Elita being the most common for a bit. I think I saw OP once, but he is available online for the same price at least. Seems even when Bee drops to OPs price he gets sold out really quick online.

My friend want a ER Optimus but he don't want to pay for that cheap-ass trailer. So his best option is the Netflix one.


No way of knowing in Quebec since Walmarts have their toy sections cut off due to government regulation. But I did get mine before the lockdown, yes, so they were around.


Lockdowns or not, my local Walmart never, ever bothered having any Netflix figures in stock.

That sucks, dude.


I live in Holland.

...

yeah...

That blue does look really nice, but I am still extremely happy with my retail Cheetor. He is extremely good

Unless these figures come with some cool pack-in, I ain't buying another Cheetor. Everyone collects differently so to those who prefer the more show accurate colors I am glad you have an option, but the Kingdom release is good enough for me. Now if they pull an Elita-1 or Bumblebee and put a figure in the Netflix box which ain't in a Kingdom box then I'm all over that, but I can't think of a single figure they could do that with in Kingdom/Wave 3.

Glad I waited, this looks WAY better than the default Cheetor to me.

I just wish I didn't have to go to Walmart of all places to get it. :SICK:

Still planning to go with RED unless the cyberverse deluxe wins me over.

Lol I was poking fun at the difference between the two and the shade of gold netflix cheetor has but thank you for reiterating what everyone and their mother has been saying since the first leaked image. I almost forgot that cheetor isn't supposed to be mustard yellow

I'm really disappointed Cheetor doesn't come with his gut gun. I don't even care if it stored by plugging in on a side port or something. He should have had it.

Plot twist: Cheetor changes his colors in WFC part 3 for this very reason.
