Something this cool should end up in the Generations line for mass retail, not as an exclusive from foreign markets. I would import this beauty, but not for $60.

I'll get one. Maybe even 2 so I can have an SG Percy

SG Perceptor already exists. Magnificus, based on the original Perceptor toy, was in the Botcon comic.



Both will work fine though.

Indeed, but I don't want a G1 Magnificus, I don't do G1 figs so he'd look real out of place.

:lol: I dare you to claim that 58$ for a robot toy is 'not bad' in a bar full of people.



Maybe the people in the bar are already drunk? :D

Not bad, in comparison to TFCC's stuff. Hope TFCC does not jack up the price IF they import it.

I will buy this! I love black repaints!

Is there a preorder anywhere? I hope e-tailers get him at $60 still.

Lets hope not. Either use the Countdown mold or nothing.

You mean Cybertron Defense Red Alert :-B

Anywho, that must be the alternate toy-accurate head Hasbro was talking about at BotCon 2011. I think Reflector will become a reality. ;)

Well, yeah, I'd have suggested him, but all the UT molds have been written off as too old and/or overused. I've been figuring this Perceptor mold would be used for MW Soundwave since we started guessing last year.

Slap on Hoist's new head and rework the color scheme on the mold and you have an armored research truck Soundwave. Not as awesome as an armored ICBM carrier, but the available alternatives for similar military vehicles is a bit lacking, and none of them have such a distinctive shoulder cannon.

But this is a bit off topic, so I'm gonna put an end to further speculation on MW in this particular thread.

This looks really awesome but I can't help but think that this was a wasted head mold. I think most of us would have been fine if Magnificus just had Perceptor's head. It's cool that he doesn't, but now I can't help but feel that I want to see Magnificus as Perceptor now.

I dont think this new head makes a good reflector. In the cartoon reflector did not have a face plate. Im not sure about the G1 toy. But on the toy, the 3 robots were different colors and Funpub is too cheap to do that with a troop builder set. But I like the face plate on Magnificus. It's Diaclone accurate and will look great on my classics Diaclone shelf.

Perceptor was Microman, as was Reflector. Supposedly they even had the same designer >:oP

So they'll do a mix of toy and cartoon: make all three the same color Perceptor repaints, but only one gets the alternate head. Spyglass (blue) and Spectro (red) had mouths, but Viewfinder (black) had a mouthplate as toys. It's an idea, and they're not shy of using alternate head if the SG Junkions are any indication.

Why are people bringing up Fun Pub/TCC with this? This is all e-HOBBY/TakaraTomy.

Regarding SG Perceptor, he's dead.

Regarding Relfector, Takara's the only one who have shown any sign of making it a reality with that listing of theirs. Hasbro's original idea appear to be in limbo.

Regarding MW Soundwave, there's already three Soundwaves in the story. Why bring in a fourth?

We were talking about BotCon possibilities my dear, the souvenirs to be exact. I think having the Reflector trio as the Troop Builder set, with Viewfinder as the commander with a unique head isn't such a farfetched idea. :)

Stalker is disappointed that you choose to nominate a cheap repaint over an original like him.

Preorders don't go live until the 28th, I suspect they're waiting until then.
