    So I wonder if that means all the retail releases will look like this. I was curious to know if perhaps we would see both in stores.

    Original packaging probably test shot.
    This one is probably on that will reach shelves.
    Although both could make it out.
    I wonder which will be the rare one.

    I liked it better when SCALPEL :) p) was packaged in microscope mode, it showed off how cool the idea was.

    Caveat Emptor. :p  "Oh, so you're Celtic?"

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to put a dent in the 1980s.

    Considering how close the Spray Paint is to the Toy aisle at my local Wal-Mart, I'd say the odd's are pretty damn good. The toy may not even leave the parking lot before I have him looking like Perceptor.:thumbs2: 

    Seriously though, I think I'll have to pass on this one...I'm waiting for the Knock-Off.:lol

    Possibly but since it is the only ROTF "device" transformer so far it may be seen as a bit of an oddball among the entire line.

    Kind of like what Noble/Savage was to Beast Machines or Laserbeak to Armada.

    People would pass on the figures at every chance, only to then scramble for them after the line ended because they then became a pain to obtain.

    I have to agree, It's a pity though, he might look much better as a more detailed deluxe class toy.

    Is there a pic of the original packaging? (It actually doesn't matter to me since I will open mine and throw the box away)

    Dear god, a stereomicroscope Transformer! :rock  Considering I use one of these things everyday, I'm gonna have to get a few of 'em. So the warmer the peg, the better for me!

    This guy is pretty cool..he looks better in this packaging than the other. >__< So many awesome robots!

    Does anyone know if we're getting toys of those Protoforms in Egypt from the trailer? =/ I kind of like the protoform design myself, wouldn't mind a deluxe or maybe a voyager..

    Well it's better than the first one we got, but it still hasn't swayed me...

    Maybe if I actually fiddle with the toy I'll change my mind.

    They could have done so much more with this character, but now he looks like a reject from short circuit. Way to go Johnny!!
