RTS PERCEPTOR ?? - TF???? - HK-TF ???? - Powered by Discuz!
His bio is so Wheeljack and so not Perceptor.
In what way? Wheeljack was always inventing crazy contraptions that he used often and Perceptor's bio makes direct reference to him not using or creating inventions very often but being brilliant and not a semi-crackpot (lol) like Wheeljack
I don't agree WJ seems more like a hands on inventor making crazy gadgets in his lab while Perceptor is more of a lab rat dealing more with theoretical science and math problems much like this bio makes out.
He's like the Hank Pym to Wheeljack's Ironman lol. Cant wait to get ahold of this guy-Perceptor is one of the only 4 G1 toys I own, and would love to get the modern update to go with hm.
It says he invents stuff, which partly is correct, but he is more of a scientist, like cyberbugs and other things. Like he does the medicine and Ratchet does the 'surgery'. I think they should've left the 'inventor' thing for Wheeljack's bio.
Read it again. It says that "it's rare that he builds or invents anything himself".
It says, cause appearantly you can't read it:
In other words Wheeljack uses Perceptor's theories to make his fantastical half-baked gizmo's.
I don't care what the words on the package say, that is one nice looking figure. It will be purchased on sight.
We actually got the bio a while back:
New Transformers Toy Bios and Images - Transformers News - TFW2005
Also for pictures, Kapow Toys has just posted a nice high-res gallery:
Wheeljack's an inventor, Perceptor is more of a Hawking type, an ideas man.
Cool toy, hell of a face on him though.
In his defense, its still an upgrade from the Microchange face we all grew up with. That's a face that only his Takara creator could love.
Sooooooo when do we get insctruction pics showing of the recolours head?
It's a nice looking figure, and the chrome is a nice touch (help's that it's use is better than the vast majority of Takara's use of it in recent years), but I'll more than likely pass on it. Still planning on turning the Reflector repaint/retool into Soundwave.
I agree, his bio is fine.
The tech specs are not bad either. They got his intelligence and rank right: his "fireblast" is probably a little low (lower than his endurance? With that whopping cannon?). It's probably just taken from his G1 specs so I shouldn't complain.
I thought Jetfire was the Iron Man to Perceptor's Hank Pym and Wheeljack's Mr. fantastic.
Just like Iron Man
"Jetfire's bravado is tempered by one overriding thought: he sincerely believes that victory over the enemy can only come through advancements in Autobot technology. He charges into battle, confident that his highly advanced airframe design will carry the day."
Can't wait to get Perceptor.
MUCH better than my analogy-plus Jetfire flies like Iron Man lol
Wheeljack can't be Stark, Starks inventions actually work and do what they're supposed to do.
And as far as we know, Wheeljack is sober.
The alt-mode color scheme is so ridiculously boring.
Bot-mode you will go, and bot-mode you will stay.
Separate names with a comma.
