Do you think we will ever see a modern toy version of Autocepter?

    Here is the old version:

    And the cancelled one from the Device Label series:

    I would like a modern update that is just a toy, and not a silly actual watch.

    This guy reimagined alongside Reflector, Perceptor etc - and other real world micro-change style stuff would be cool.

    Do you think anyone will ever make a modern update of him?

    I think a modern version might be intriguing with a little tweak to the design. Keep the original police car and robot mode but possibly give him a third computer or base mode instead of the watch mode that has the clock displayed front and center. They could also go one step further and have the actual clock part detach and become a "mini-con" that not only can change into a robot mode but can attach to a separate watch strap and be used as a wrist watch.

    This might be a pretty fun release for kids so I think if this was to happen, it would fit in perfectly with the Rescue Bots line.

    I had and loved that other wristwatch guy, the one without a discernable third mode who was ko-d.
    I would like to get one again, that guy was amazingly fun.

    God I loved the Real Gears. I did think it strange that those transforming robot watches in the 80s were working watches but the Real Gears in 2007 were not.

    I'd love to see the Real Gears retroactively made part of G1.
    Love the watch Meantime. Between his name and smirk I could imagine him as a torturer.
    Could be like Sam's watch in Dark of the Moon.

    I don't have any of those other ones they did, such as the TF's that turned into game controllers, gameboys an stuff like that, but I'd like to see more of that stuff, things that were roughly real world size small objects that turned into bots.

    These bots are obviously nowhere near 1:1 scale.

    However, I do think they fit the robots in disguise theme, and it would be cool to see new toys like that in the spirit of the old Micro Change Diaclone line.

    He wouldn't be a watch the real gear line got deep discounted.
