TF08 has shown us some new close and personal images of the upcoming Universe Cheetor and Cyclonus figures, whcih give us a good look at the colors, details, and features fo the two figures. See each of them here.

Plus, ACToys has even more hi-res images of Cheetor at various camera angles to give us a better idea as to what the figure fully is like. Check these out here.

Also, an Ebay auction has the upcoming Bruticus Maximus combiner for sale. The image included with it is the one of the first full body shots of the toy itself. Keep in mind that some of the colors on this toy may differ from the final product. See the auction and the image here.


Two new auctions have appeared on Ebay. One is for Bruticus Maximus, the other is for Universe Superion! Both are shown inside their boxes.

Bruticus Maximus consists of Onslaught (repainted from Barricade), Vortex and Swindle (using the Helicopter mold), and Blastoff and Brawl (using the Tank mold).

Superion features Silverbolt (repainted from Storm Jet), Air Raid and Skydive (using the A-10 plane mold), and Slingshot Airazor and Fireflight (using the other jet mold).

Oh my god, Cheetor is aweful. It pains me to know that I'm going to buy it...

Aww come on TPR he isnt that bad. The eye color changing thing is a great homage to his old supreme class counterpart!

Hmm Cyclonus looks just...perfect. he doesnt have any extra kibble in robot mode. Ive seen his transformation on youtube, simple yet clever. Must have..

ACToys link went keput...but I can see the others.

The more I see Cheetor, the more he grows on me. I may pick him up after all.

Cheetor looks like something from transformers animated and also do you think they are going to re-release energon superion maximus as superion?

I suppose there's a chance of that Mightwork. We did get a Classics re-paint set of the the Energon Constructicons. Now we're getting the Energon Combaticons re-painted for Universe. I don't see why Hasbro wouldn't eventually do the Energon Aerialbots. I suppose it will depend on sales of the Bruticus set.

Cheetor's beast mode looks great. His robot mode leaves something to be desired though. I wish he had his gut gun and his feet were different. Although he is much closer to the CGI model. Cyclonus on the other hand is a must have for me. Both modes just look spectacular.

I don't think he's any closer to the animation model. If anything, the original was closer in robot mode. The Beast mode has more of the Cheetah's natural lines, which is impressive. Beast Machines has showed us the problems of such a spindly and slender alt. mode.

I feel like the kibble was poorly managed on Cheetor, like they wasted some empty spaces they didn't need to. It's an ambitious mold, but doesn't quite pull it off as well as Dinobot did.

I can't wait to get all these!

Don't care about Cheetor. I'll point out that releasing Beast Wars figures is a good thing. Kids from that era are growing up now. I'll definitely get Cyclonus, He'll look good standing next to my Universe Galvatron and Titanium Scourge. I'm definitely going to get the Arielbots and Combaticons. I don't like repaints, I do have the Energon versions, these are exceptions I'll make.

Whoa!! My idea came true! maybe hasbro takes alook at this site every now and then, I can't wait to get the aierialbots!
