    They're both great so if you can work it out, get both. But, if you can only get one then, get the Insecticons.

    I want both, but the payment on bills may not allow me to do so. Hoping TRU.com has em a bit longer so i can get the other down the road.

    If you get Perceptor, you only get one figure. If you get the Insecticons, you get three. :D 
    I'd get the Insecticons now, and Perceptor later.

    I expect the Insecticons to sell out first, so get those now and go back for Perceptor when you can.

    These are still around?

    I went both, actually, but I may be looking to sell off my Perceptor. My Insecticons are displayed on my Henkei/Classics shelf. They may not be up to par as far as articulation goes, but they pull off fitting in with those young punk toys.

    If I had to pick I'd probably go with the bugs.

    Just because you get three firgures for the same price, go with the insecticons. But Perceptor it totally worth it as well. But only if you are into the G1 toys. They are nowhere the same articulation and engineering as today's tf's. I personally got them for the nostalgia factor.

    I find Perceptor to be better. Plus the stickers on the Insecticons will NOT stay on mine. I had to glue them. However the Insecticons, like some have said, will be harder to find, so if you plan on getting both eventually, get them first. If you only plan to get one, go for Perceptor.

    Go with the Insecticons first, and hopefully Perceptor will still be available when you're able to get him.

    if you can only get one, get the insecticons, as you're getting 3 bots for the price of 1.

    Wow I would have said Perceptor I think he's a much cooler bot. Plus, unless things have changed, G1 Insecticons could be purchased on ebay for really cheap .

    I think Perceptor's cooler too. Insecticons had drones in the show though, I expect them to sell out first due to troop-building.

    hmm gf isnt home, gonna have to hold off to order them until i can get her rewards number. might as well get credit for this tru purchase :)  yeah both are in stock online for 34.99 apiece i believe. with shipping it comes to be just a bit north of 80 for both. I liked the nerds when i was a kid and thought perceptor was cool. Plus doesnt the toy have a tank mode?

    I'll join the dissenting voices and say Perceptor. If you're interested in playing with/posing your toys, Perceptor is the clear winner. He has knees, elbows, shoulders... really one of the most posable G1 figures. Of the Insecticons, I only had Kickback as a kid, but they're kinda bricks, aren't they?
