    Gotta be RtS Perceptor as Magnificus based on this image. The 3 lights are Perceptor's in vehicle mode, and the coloration and previously link to eHOBBY makes me think Magnificus.

    Mebion, sure seems like it Randy.^

    I can dig it, but probably won't like the price.

    My first Perceptor was the Microchange black version. Pretty cool. I'd be down for it.

    Two people already worked it out as Mebion/Magnificus before your post, lol.

    Magnificus sounds cool enough. Not cool enough to for me to buy though, I don't really like either the G1 or RtS figure. I'd be far more interested in us finally getting the Reflector from that mold.

    I think that's a pretty good guess there.

    Yeah, I'm way behind on my Japanese only Transformers lore. I only had experience with the North American releases in most aspects as a kid, and never read the Dreamwave comics.

    Yeah, if it's priced like Million Publishing's Stepper and Artfire, I'll have to pass.

    I wonder if Fun Publications will work out some deal to get these like they did the SG VS set.

    I'm down with the deco, and I'm one of the seeming few that actually like the mold, but the price is what scares me. I'm trying to get the most bang for the robot buck these days, and Stepper and Artfire were simply not feasible for me. Too bad because they're really nice toys.

    classics/generations Magnificus. I won't say no to that. He's a intriguing character, plus being a Perceptor fan-boy, he one of the obscure one who i like.

    I like the idea of them going back to the reissue repaint characters.

    Ebay:
    It could be RtS Perceptor as Reflector. The triple lights could be symbolic of both the roof lights on that mold and also the 3 bots that make up the Reflector team. We were told that Reflector was the planned re-use for that mold but we've yet to see it even though it appeared in a solicitation yet again just this past year along with a Hardhead redeco of Generations Warpath.
