    Wheeljack should most certainly get a toy. A new Perceptor that isn't 3 minicons would also be fucking rad McCool awesome.

    They said at BotCon that the G1 Perceptor is getting a re release in honor of the Animated character. That would indicate that there was never any plans of making an Animated toy for him.

    Didn't they show a sketch of Animated Perceptor waaay back (long before he was in the show) and stated he was in the works as a toy? Maybe I misinterpreted..he's probably not coming or we would have already seen material. Ah well.

    I think I read that as well. But all they had were drawings of his animation model. Which included a Earth Truck mode with perceptors light cannon on top.

    It was going to be a split van like energon towline. With his back section
    becomeing a mobile lab and the rest his frame freeform robotic without truck wheel kibble.

    I'm positive Aaron Archer worked on something with the perceptor toy but it seems to have never made to the point where molds were produced. Which is the only reason we are getting Rodimus minor, arcee, and the rest. Because the toys already exist and are in warehouses somewhere.

    That means somewhere in the Hasbro Archive there is a prototype for all the bots that made it to the prototype stage but not the steel mould stage

    No, not in the near future. But never say never as you just can't predict what may pop up in the future. Remember all of the War Within toys that people said would never get made? Or perhaps the Masterpiece Megatron that the fans wanted and were told could never be made.

    Who knows what a future Universe line may hold.

    I don't remember seeing the alt mode on the show, or was it?

    I suspect they were further along the toy design process for Perceptor than they were with many other characters

    Yeah, it was in the show. I noticed it because I was spacing out when I saw TransWarped and first noticed him and Wheeljack.

    I think in one of the shots the first time you see Omega Supreme (in TransWarped flashbacks), if you look down in the corner you can see Perceptor in his car/lab mode with Wheeljack looking in his microscope or something.
