    You're a scholar and a gentleman, sir. I definitely wouldn't ask you to do anything sketchy. It's a very cool kit, but I'd be just as happy with something of your own creation!

    I prefer to go by Toon but with his optics it only makes sense to me he is the sniper :D

    I thought he is a bit small, but he’s basically the same size as MS Hoist and Trailbreaker.

    Indeed and I really like him, nice and old school blocky, plus super posable. Don't think the head is too small at all to be honest, like some other members posted. But to each their own of course :)

    I think what it is--his body is a bit too wide. His head size seems right for his robot height, but I feel like it's the body width that's throwing him. Still looks awesome, and dying to get mine in!

    The background pieces are from X2 Toys. I got them from Toy Dojo a couple of years ago.

    I wouldn't call it knocking off. You'd be creating your own merely using hers(?) as a visual reference. Or alternately, just go to the source in the comic and build your own from that. That's assuming there's enough interest to make it worth your while - not sure how many people want to give IDW Perceptor's rifle to G1 Perceptor.

    Got Perceptor yesterday, loving the little dude's aesthetics! Very posable, nice colors and no qc issues, recommended :cool:

    He can *almost* get in a sniper pose. But he needs a new head...

    And new shoulder connections.

    And new thighs, with forward hip movement.


    Maybe CrazyDevy is up to the task?


    In the end you'll have a 90% new figure...

    It's just more sensible to get this guy and a 3d printed sniper rifle.


    Edited due to little sleep & no coffee...

    I was putting away some Titans Return figures and noticed the TR Perceptor in the storage box. Took him out for a pic with MS Perceptor:

    I think the TR Perceptor was actually a pretty decent representation back in the day, but obviously no match for the MS.

    He's really a good looking little bot:

    I'm keeping my TR Perceptor, just because the scope works!

    Just got it, stellar figure! The transformation is so nice, the microscope is so well packed, the bot is beautiful and wonderfully articulated... Best Perceptor ever, incredibly fun.

    I think it's funny how they shipped him with the scope on the wrong side. The instructions show it on the correct left shoulder and I had a "WTF they screwed mine up" moment until I got halfway through transformation and realized it can be swapped side to side.
