    Taken from Seibertron
    winfox of ACToys.com has posted some images of what appears to be a yellow binoculars transformer. Could this be another objectformer from Transformers Movie like the cellphone and others we have seen, or could it be some very well done custom. We will keep you informed as we learn new infromation on this new Bot.

    Edited to add: looks like his name could be LONGVIEW

    No matter how the movie turns out, I'm glad its giving us these gizmo bots. I've always been a big fan of these type of Transformers and there aren't enough of them.

    Hmm for some reason this smells of non-officialness to me..
    Probably has to do with the Autobot sticker or something.

    Ah well, looks cool enough so I'll just hope it's real.

    I don't know... The design...style doesn't match the realism we've seen in the other Gizmo-bots. I wonder if maybe this might be from the upcoming animated series for next fall.

    (tho it does kinda remind me of Bumblebee's G1 Cybertron alt mode)

    Coolness.

    Looks like they might work, too.
    Notice the lenses on his shoulder?

    I LOVE these movie roleplay toys. It's about time we got some roleplay TFs again.

    Looks like it says "Longview" along the side. Could be his name.

    Looks nice. Hope it's an actual product and not a custom.

    Neat. I'll definitely have to pick that up. If all the movie bots looked like this, I wouldn't be complaining. :D

    That is so awesome. Reminds me of the Star Wars and tv Batman series days where they sold tonnes of useless crap (walky talkies, soap, masks, binoculars etc)

    YES! YES! Functional Thing-formers! I always loved Perceptor as a kid because unlike Megs and Soundwave, he actually worked as a Microscope. As cool as the new cell phone bot, camera bot and game boy bot are, I can't imagine them having too much play value since they can't do much. But a working binocular bot is so friggin awesome! This is the first must-buy I've seen this year.
