    I think it would be a fun gimmick to put real working digital cameras in Perceptor and Reflector. They wouldn't have to have lots of megapixels, but would be a neat Universe/(Camera label?) thing I think.

    why would a microscope need a camera, and why would that be called a "working perceptor"?

    perceptor is already a functioning microscope. not a very good one, but he does work.

    I keep hoping they'll make a (very)mini version of the "Eyeclops" toy, so you could strap it to Perceptor

    Reflector natively semi-works too, albeit as a periscopy-camera-viewfinder, but hey, it's an action feature!

    Worthless for me. I buy Transformers because I like the toys. I buy a camera because It has features that meet my needs. If I needed a microscope, I would buy that because of it's features. The cost would be rediculous for a feature that I would find worthless, would never use, and would likely be low quality. That is my take on it. The gimmick would be cool for all of about 20 seconds.

    Reflector turning into a camera is a cute idea considering he's mainly a holdover from Pre-G1 lines, but that would be one hell of an expensive toy. Enough to buy a better camera than what Reflector would be.

    I'd just settle for a re-issue of Reflector, personaly.

    Exactly, I'm getting the Ravage USB because I want the kitteh, I doubt it'll ever be plugged into a computer (unless it's to put some Ravage themed episodes on :D ).

    Look at the now-cancelled Chrono-label line, compromised and ugly watch modes, with again compromised and hence poor bot modes.

    Who actually uses Music-label Soundwave as an MP3 player? With the Frenzy and Rumble earphones?

    Sports-label: It's a trainer! Not even a functioning trainer! A tiny model shoe?


    Want a camera, buy a camera.

    Want a TF, buy a TF.

    I use my white Soundwave as my player at the gym... it gets the job done!

    Of course i use the standard headphones... i would look silly with Rumble & Frenzy...

    Now, the upcoming Ravage, i cant wait for him! it would be just cool to carry around a Transformer on my backpack, and an useful one at that!

    Finally, the Chrono labels were cool as update of the original, but with that price OBVIOUSLY no one would be buying either
