    *Spoilers*

    He was announced at Botcon.
    It was said that he'd only been designed a little while before then.

    Since they're trying to avoid mass-shifting he will not be a microscope.

    I miss mass shifters. Why are they so scared to do that now? It's a cartoon it doesn't have to be limited completely by the rules of physics I mean they talk in outer space sometimes.

    I'm gonna guess his alt mode will be something similar maybe some sort of vehicle with a large radar scope or something.

    Robots talking doesn't necessarily mean vibration. It could be a com-link of some form.

    Perceptor has a really huge, egg-shaped head, his G1 colors, and whatever his vehicle mode is it has to have treads. That's really all I can tell ya/remember.

    yes - very G1 robot mode, I would not be at all surprised if when the toy comes out if he could somehow be put into a microscope mode.

    The reason for not doing mass shifting is simply that they don't feel you can stretch disbelief that far. They can cheat so much on sizes and stuff, but a huge robot into a microscope or cassette would be too much.

    Also, who the heck other than a fan would find a microscope TF cool? A microscope has to be just about the most boring alt mode going!

    An awesome alt-mode for Perceptor would be some sort of mars-rover-ish vehicle.

    I could sense his roles for future episodes of Season 3 @ Cybertron, maybe he's also a member of Elite Guard.

    Definitely has to be something to do with sight, as with Soundwave and sound.

    I'd imagine him to be some sort of Cybertron version of a news-channel war reporter - with eyes/cameras everywhere and a wry, impassive view of the TF war.

    Or not.

    Well since TFA is set in the future, they could easily just make up a vehicle, like a van with a telescope on it used by astronomers in the future.

    Yeah, this is a good idea... a very good idea. Frankly, as much as I love G1 Perceptor... I really have to say that I never want another toy microscope. Same thing with Soundwave & Blaster... their alt modes are totally outdated and they need to be updated if & when they get new releases.

    How is a microscope outdated?

    I'm pretty sure they are used widely in schools and labs.

    David Lynch wrote the pilot for a tv series about the making of a tv series (elements of which made it in to Mullholland Drive and Inland Empire) featuring a cameraman character with an eye problem that means he can see everything in microscopic detail and the influx of such precise information is sending him crazy.

    But then David Lynch also wrote an occasional comic strip about a dog so angry that it couldn't move, it could barely growl, it lived in a constant state of tension.

    Please let David Lynch write for TFA s3.

    i personally like the roving Telescope idea, with the treads and whatnot.

    also, what is it with this series and treads? Perceptor, Blitzwing, Cyb. Prime, Cyb. Ratchet (and prbly Cyb. Ironhide), Mixmaster, Scrapper, mostlikely Shockwave, plus Bulkhead has inexplicable treads in his heels. anyone else noticing a trend?
