    I don't have artistic skill of any sort to whip up a design myself, but as my mind wandered a few days ago I found myself thinking about an update for Perceptor.

    Has anyone ever seen a large ground-based telescope? The Keck Observatories are the first ones that come to mind for me, and I realize he'd make for one massive, massive robot, but I figure it's either that or another microscope. Given the option of a tiny Perceptor duking it out with Scalpel, well, I'd rather see the one with the 10m mirror mounted on his shoulder.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one to have had this idea... am I talking crazy?

    honestly im surprised they haven't repainted Scalpel as Perceptor as it seems like such an obvious way to get more money out of the mold

    I sure wanna see Perceptor in Bayverse, but hopefully as a full-size robot. Maybe they can give him one of those gigantic telescope alt modes.

    I think perceptor should turn into one of those huge electron microscopes, and since electron microscopes are the size of a small room, he would be roughly car sized in robot mode.

    The Telescope is a good idea, if they can make him a good size to fit in.

    I say tiny! I had an idea about the same exact thing a while ago too. BUT, Perceptor should be a tiny humanoid robot, not a creepy spidery thing.

    Neither. I think he should be the size of Bumblebee. Can't think of an alt mode though.

    Make him the size of Ironhide, and that'll do.

    if he is in the next movie, perceptor should turn out to be the hubble space telescope. failing that, he should probably just be fired into space anyway.

    (the IDW super sharp shooter shooting perceptor was awesome, if he's in ze movie, he should be like that)

    I like this idea. There's no reason Perceptor would need to be a giant robot, but I'd like to see him much bigger than Scalpel for sure.

    I can't help but think that Perceptor would be better off as a tiny microscope or something within that nature. :lol

    I'm not. It's not really a good "fit" to make Percy a frightening, spider-monster thing.

    I'd say make him a Minibot like Wheelie. Maybe pair him with a larger Transformer who acts as brawn to his brains.

    A Movieverse Bulkhead would be a great addition in that respect. Big clumsy dude who's brutally strong, but quite smart because the little robot has been training him.

    What if they went with the idea in Animated? With him turning into a pick up truck with a third mode as a "computer analyisis"/scientist workshop.

    I totally agree but it is a good way to squeeze more money of that mold and hasbro loves doing that
