    Now that I found out that the universe Perceptor and Insecticons are out in Canada now which should I get? Perceptor is microscope and looks like he has a mouth guard which is cool, but the Insecticons come in three. Which to choose?

    Insecticons no question. If you can get both, do so.

    I'd get both. That's what my brother and I are planning on doing once they come out.

    Why isn't "both" an option on this poll? If "Neither" is, then "both" should be as well!

    But if you absolutely had to get only one? I'd plump for the Insecticons, but Perceptor is fantastic.

    I personally would go with The Insecticons. I only have two of the originals, so I may pick up a couple sets of them. They were really fun little toys, and make great display pieces. Perceptor is also a great toy (have him with the original box, insert, etc), but just isn't as awesome as the insecticons. Plus, if you are decide to pick up the other later, it will probably be easier to find Perceptor, cause I don't see people building armies of him.

    I'd have to say insecticons all the way. They were always great molds and characters and have hardly ever gotten decent updates.

    If you like the design and "idea" of Perceptor, then by all means pick him up. Some people really dig the scientist turning into a microscope, and he might be a big seller in areas with a lot of science majors so be careful, cause he might go quick.

    I'm grabbing the insecticons: never had them as a kid, had Perceptor. Am going to pick up a second set to attempt to kit-bash into articulated insecticons.

    I voted for Insecticons, but I would advise to get both if you can. If you can have only one box, then go for Insecticons.

    Insecticons represents more bang for your buck. A set of three for $45 works out at $15 each, they're small compared to Deluxes, but they are great designs. And like I say, set of three. Perceptor is nice, but he can't compete with a three pack in my opinion.

    you win either way, they are some of the best G1 molds, bar none. Great decos, accesories, some of the most articulate G1ers...
