    I dig the bot mode, but alt mode not so much. Changing an iconic alt mode for a certain figure is not a good thing IMO.

    Is his chest chromed or silver paint? It looks ace.

    Is the MR5 license plate a Microchange reference?

    Looks Chrome to me.

    I would've suggested that's the Takara version... but with that rubsign, not entirely sure.

    Chrome!? CHROME!?

    Awesome.

    Lets wait for fan-mode microscopes.

    Is it just the angle of the camera.....or is his right eye brow raised in a somewhat quizzical fashion?

    IIRC, Perceptor was Aaron Archer's favorite TF as a kid.

    Maybe he pushed for the Chrome on this one specifically... Which would mean that Chrome isn't necessarily back full stop.

    Well, it is going to be retooled/redecoed into Reflector.

    Lovin' this a lot.

    Anyone wanna guess what the MR5 1409 might be referring to?

    That looks really good. I like the colors on it. I think the alt mode is pretty good. I don't think he would work as a microscope anymore. Besides, we recently got a microscope toy...Scalpel.

    So freaking glad I have him on pre-order now. He's going to look freaking sweet on my wreckers shelf.

    Not liking his alt mode and his big backpack and chunky legs.

    If i see him shelfwarming for $9, i'll pick him up. Definitely a second rate mold to me

    He looks awesome, and finally in the scale with the other deluxes, like he was in the cartoon. Hasbro is really turning them out lately. Hopefully by this time next year, we'll have all the major players form the US cartoon. If you can take off that hood piece, it looks like you could get a microscope mode out of it and still have his old transformation. Only thing I don't like is he doesn't have blue eyes, but that's easily fixed. Looking forward to this guy.

    this looks so much better than the other pics we have seen of him granted he still has a backpack but i am ok with that.

    the long face reminds me of IDW's perceptor minus his targeting monicle.

    come on fansproject give us a sniper!!!

    the vehicle mode doesn't bother me, though I would have appreciated a microscope more.

    I think looks good, just hoping those pannels on the back of the legs compresses more.
