is that the autobot symbol i see on perceptor's crotch?

Whoa, I think I see it too. Was that intentional?

How can Animated get so much right and at the same time get so much wrong?


I've been wondering about that, too.


It's awesome to see more G1 favorites appear. Wheeljack is acceptible, even though they still managed to give him the big-chin design, despite that he doesn't exactly have one.

Perceptor looks okay. I'm excited to see that he may in fact be a microscope. But what's with the wierd dome head and glasses?

I almost wonder if there will be a Beaker and Bunsen Honeydew thing going on here.

Well, the best part is.....here are two more classic characters being introduced to today's young fans, and if the toys of them sell well, we may see them in the Universe 2.0 line also.

Awesome! Two more excellent G1 characters. I'm looking forward to seeing Animated's take on them.

Perceptor looks so G1 (bar the head, but it doesn't offend me and I like the addition of glasses to nerd him up some more - even though glasses make no sense on a robot) and it does look like he may be a microscope still, which surprises me. Pleasantly.

Wheeljack just looks excellent in all regards.

Give me those guys as toys!

Wheeljack looks great from the neck down. Robots don't have hair. They are robots. Otherwise, I like that the kept the G1 look. Wheeljack was one of my favorites growing up.

Perceptor looks weird to me. I like that the made him look like the "stereotypical scienctist" but his head is way too oblong for his body.

Oh well, two new G1 inspired figures. I will buy them both without hesitation.

... and another thought. I hope they keep the Lancia Stratos look for Wheeljacks alt mode. That is one of the coolest looking alt modes I have ever seen.

Wheeljack looks great, my only issue with him is that if we get a toy of him (which is pretty damn likely if he appears in the show) we won't get an Universe toy of him for a while, but I think I can survive. a good Animated Wheeljack is better then no Wheeljack!

As for Perceptor, well, he has never been a huge favorite of mine, so I am not as excited about him as Wheeljack. However, I do like him, except they really need to re-work his head and make him look less silly...

Munkimus like alot, I maybe a fan of monkies but not of mojocepter. Wheeljack on the other hand looks awsome, I hope they release toys of these two. I can't wait for season 3 to start.

I don't know why all of you are upset because perceptor looks kinda diminutive. It's not like he was ever really all that tough...I think he looks great.

Wheeljack is badass and was always one of my favorites, just a little sad because this probably means there'll be no universe wheeljack.

Wheeljack looks awesome. Perceptor well he looks good but needs a new head. I am happy that theres finally a new Perceptor coming. Took em long enough. Damn near 23 years. Cant wait to see what the figures look like.

I was gonna say, that when I first saw Wheeljack, the first thing that popped into my mind was Jamie Hyneman, especially with the molestache he has going on.

Love em both. Wheeljack is just awesome. I'm probably in the minority here but I like Perceptor's look. He looks like a egghead brainiac scientist guy stereotype and I love it. Hopefully they will both get toys.

I wouldn't say I'm actually collecting Animated, but there's been a few figures (most notably Snarl and Swoop) that I've jumped on. Based on that image, I'd love it if Wheeljack joins that list. Perceptor, not so much... I don't really like that head...

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

I'd like to think that is not necessarily true. I know Hasbro said that they wouldn't be releasing the same characters in different lines to prevent confusion, but I think they threw that idea out the window.

We got Ratchet and Prowl in Universe after all.. so here's hoping! I would love both an Animated and a Universe Wheeljack.

Is right. I hate them. Jackie looks old and the "beard" is awful. Perceptor is the worst of all. He looks like a very wimpy science geek with some designs stolen from Mojo Jojo (ppg) XP XP ;.; ;.; I am upset by these designs, I loved these guys. As it stands I much prefer the fan representations.
