Cheetor wants you to think that he got his name from his beast mode, but the truth is that Rattrap gave him that moniker back on Cybertron when he caught the future feline palming aces during what was supposed to be a friendly game of Kaon Hold 'Em. Fortunately for him, everyone at the table decided to stage an impromptu intervention for his bad habit. After a few kind words and a two-hour beating, the big yellow cat vowed to clean up his act.

I believe I can assist. I learned more about them than I cared to when I was building the database.

Non-Transformers Toy Discussion / Help Request: Skylanders Ident...
Last post by engledogg - January 09, 2020, 02:15:47 PM
We have some folks here on the site that are very knowledgeable about the Skylanders toys; unfortunately for me, I am not one of them. :)

I recently acquired a number of Skylanders because they looked cool  (and were cheap).

If I were to put up some quickie photos (group shots), I wouldn't mind knowing which ones I have, lol.

So, if anyone thinks they might be able to help me out, let me know and I'll toss up a few photos when I can.

Thanks!

Are you worried that you're not going to keep your New Year's resolution to get in shape? Then take some inspiration from our pal Brawn. Look at how much he bulked up, and it only took him 33 years! (Photo courtesy of Spiff-O-Matic and his mega-muscley picture-snapping finger.)

First off, let me say that I'm totally jealous of that Ramulus and Optimus Minor.  :)

I have heard of the yellow-eyed TM2 Dinobot, but not the silver paint apps TM2 Cheetor...interesting.

I wouldn't be opposed to putting them up on the site, but it would be good to get some more concrete information on them.  I only found one other mention of Dinobot on TFW2005, but nothing really beyond that.

I've never heard of the Depth Charge or Blackarachnia stickered bio cards, either.  If you could find out more about them, that would be great.

As far as Ramulus and Optimus Minor go, to my understanding, they never reached their intended markets and were only "unofficially officially" sold at the Hasbro HQ employee store and aren't officially recognized as released Hasbro products.

Unfortunately the Blackarachnia and Depth Charge aren't as common; hence why I wasn't able to grab any immediate pictures lol!
None of the listings I have found for any of the figures specifies their origins. Other than they were simply early promotion imports for Metals prior to their identical to Hasbro retail Metals releases. It's so odd. For the different paint ones to be in Hasbro boxes and the same paint ones to come in Takara boxes lol
But they were definitely only limited to the Japanese market; as they're fairly common, albeit a little pricey. Depth Charge for sure had green eyes for his. I can reach out to a friend who may have pics (or even owns) the Depth Charge and/or Blackarachnia. 
Unrelated; there's also a chrome variant for Transmetal Tarantulas that is more "amber" and less "orange" but that's just a standard Hasbro chrome variant. I open everything so boxes are long gone for it.. Very similar to Metals Tarans in chrome color just no extended yellow paint for the "visor" over the eyes lol
Also thanks! I definitely moved heaven and earth to get those two. They're still sealed..... But not for long! Lol
