    That's great because he's kind of lacking a real gimmick. Other than chrome and the converting shoulder cannon.

    The dials have 3mm clip points but the chrome makes it to thick to use.

    That doesn't look half-bad. Was gonna get him anyway, but now I feel even more confident in that decision.

    It's goofy looking, but better than WFC Soundwave's "boombox" mode

    I dig it. You could totally use his hands to manipulate whatever specimen he's observing.

    Yeah, it's definitely something like this. Still waiting until I can get this toy, maybe the shoulder cannon can be centered in some way.

    Been thinking it could do something like this from day one. There's a reason the robot chest window can come down to form some kind of table/petri dish, because I don't think it's needed for transformation at all.

    Am I the only one that has no issues with Perceptors alt mode?

    The fact that his robot mode has every piece of his Microscope kibble on it is AWESOME.

    I agree. Most of the autobots are cars anyways

    This makes it a best of both worlds deal. It's every bit as good as G1 Perceptor's tank mode.

    I definitely have no issues with the normal science truck alt mode at all! In fact, I like it.

    But being able to do this might convince some extra people to pick him up, and intended or not, it's a nice touch, right? :) 

    I was already really looking forward to this one.

    The chest folds down 'cause the rub sign is there.


    Anyways, that "microscope" mode looks pretty stupid. I love his vehicle mode.

    Perhaps there's a Micro-change tank mode hidden in there some place too - he does after all have the tank treads for it.

    I think perhaps one of those silly Mech-tech weapons might make for a possible eye piece for him if there is a way to attach it - or maybe he can combine with the real gear robot binoculars mould.

    his alt mode is the reason why i won't get him even though i really like his bot mode. hopefully there's a hidden microscope mode or something we'll find out soon.

    This first pic didn't really grab me but the second one with the shoulder cannon swiveled over convinced me.

    Not bad. Not bad at all.

    Pretty darn nice. To be honest, this mode looks better then some of the triple changers that Hasbro/Takara create.

    As for wanting a proper alt mode, I am in the G1 side of things. I think regardless how silly, we should have a G1 mold for our classics.

    It's like having Grimlock be a car. It's just not right.

    Alt Grimlock was a popular character as was WWI Grimlock...both vehicles.

    But this is just me busting chops lol.

    I'm one of those that has zero issue with his new alt mode.

    They could have just stuck the rubsign on top of the window and not allow the window to fold down at all. That's what they have been doing to Transformers since the beginning of time, haven't they?
