    I wonder if Perceptor is going to be a taller Deluxe like Ironhide, or a smaller Deluxe like the car bots....

    Hopefully he's a taller Deluxe!

    Some parts of transformers have to go into a certain spot. Like the chest part with the placeholder part. And the Microscope barrel. Another thing is his " secret mode" Meaning his legs will have treads etc. Just that certain stuff goes in certain places from robot to alt mode. You will always have those parts mode in those places. So it does not mean it is a remold/reuse of the same.
    What can happen but there is no evidence so far that they reuse the same CAD files. Like with Hungurr from Silverbolt.

    I remember there was some speculation, when Refraktor was released, that Refraktor might be a pre-tool of Perceptor. I can definitely see some similarities. They're both deluxes. The legs look very similar. You would just have to rotate them 90 degrees. They both have a flip down chest. Make Refraktor's arms collapse a little more, swap the gun for the microscope lense, and there you have it.

    They literally share no parts.

    Anyway, does anyone know if the Hasbro rep mentioned if Perceptor's lens will actually work, like the original toy?

    Anybody else had their fingers as crossed as can be for a Magnificus? I mean a new head and repaint and you're basically done

    Unless of course they would want to include a G.I. Joe Classified Ga'Mede. A man can dream, can't he?

    guys when 2 figures look similar it doesn’t mean they’re a retool because the only reason they look similar is cause they’re literally based off the same character. Yes, the legs, the arms, and the torso are in the same place, but that’s literally because that’s how the character is supposed to be.


    It’s like saying almost every grimlock toys are garbage retools because their robot hands transform into their Dino feet

    edit: I just realized how long ago the post I was responding to was ;-;

    I am. I scheduled the day off. Curious to see the turnout. In 2018 it was a pretty large crowd. Busiest Fathom event I went to recently was for Labyrinth, maybe twenty people in the whole theater..

    Going to the 12 noon showing in less than two hours here in the SF Bay area. Wonder if we will get a poster or some other giveaway?

    Hey, we went to that one too! Labyrinth was my wife's thing and this one was mine.

    We just came out of our showing, we got nothing.

    Just left the theater, but wound up showing up late. Did they show any "exclusive content" before the movie actually started? I remember the original announcement mentioning something.
