    Iirc we had medix's box images due to a crosscut/crankcase mishap or something, but I'm happy we got an update on him regardless.

    the Medix box is a mockup, but that Perceptor is all new.

    That’s a left-field choice. It’s a G1 knockoff of a Rescue Bots Academy character who has very little fiction of his own.

    Looks good. Glad he seems to have retained his chrome, unlike Hot Rod and Hound. The blue limbs and new paint ops (silver tummy, yellow forehead crest, leg details) are great!

    I mean, we’ve already known about him for a while. Plus, he was one of the main characters in Rescue Bots Academy so it’s not that bad of a choice.

    Forgot Perceptor was coming, definitely picking that one up. G1 Perceptor is a really fun figure, but my original has seen much better days.

    Because of course some obscure (to me) French retailer would have a figure that no one here in the US even knew was coming, to my knowledge anyway. That said I can't wait to gnosh on that G1 Perceptor- a huge fan favorite of mine.

    If this had the classic G1 box, I\'d buy it in a heartbeat.  I loathe the new direction Hasbro has taken.

    That box art looks great! My Perceptor is in excellent shape otherwise, I would get it.

    My wishlist for this G1 Retro Line, a G1 Ultra Magnus with a white thigh and blue belt to match the toon. Bonus if they make an adaptor to clip the rocket launcher mounted on the side of trailer, wishful thinking, lol :)

    Not going to get this one.  Honestly going to skip all the Season 3 guys and wait for the original carbots.  Hopefully Jazz, Sideswipe, Prowl coming soon!

    I’ve actually always wanted a G1 Perceptor, really excited for this!
