    interesting, wheeljacks got massive homage to G1. Perceptor has been given the stereotyped scientist look, perhaps more spindly human than some will like but that could make for a rather cool and unusual toy, if they ever become toys, i sure hope wheeljack does!!

    I like the take on perceptor, im not sure the original microchange toy was ever meant to be a scientist but more a robot in disguise and a vehicle for microman, this look works more for the character. i hope hes a triple changer, in fact he might turn into a tank and not a microscope, a giant microscope wouldnt really make any sense in animated, unless he shrinks, remember the giant microscope of perceptor was meant to be a real type microscope full scale in the microman line.

    Wheeljack is okay,but what's up with Perceptor's head?

    Surprisingly,their chins are not as big compared to the past characters... :D

    Is this the first G1-inspired Wheeljack with a chin?

    Sweet! I'm really loving the Animated designs more and more!

    EDIT: I wonder if Wheeljack has a mouth?

    He doesn't have a mouth for Ironhide to put liquid nitogen.

    Like how he succeded for Chris Latta's Starscream, Tom Kenny should voice Wheeljack. (He could just use Spongebob's "Normal" voice from the "Not Normal" episode)

    Wish Wheeljck didn't look like a retooled Rachet. Perceptor looks sick, and not in a good way. Ah well, maybe the action figures will look better.

    Wheeljack looks cool, but his chin throws me off. Perceptor doesn't look right to me one bit though.

    he does look a bit like ratchet but i'd be very suprised (and disappointed if any animated toys use retools as new characters, clones are another matter) if he doesnt get his own totally new toy.

    Awesome! And isn't Perceptor going to be voiced by George Takei? (if I remember correctly since it kinda looks like him facewise)

    if a perceptor toy is realised he likely wont look quite so skinny.
