HK-TF.com member Mike has posted some new images of the upcoming Hasbro release Reveal the Shield, deluxe Perceptor. The new photos give us an even closer look at both the half-track truck and robot modes and highlight all the nice details of the figure including his G1-accurate, chrome accents on his knobs and chest plate. This figured has already been released in some Asian markets and will hopefully hit store shelves in the US in the next 4-6 weeks.

We've mirrored some of the images from the original post below. Click HERE to check out Mike's entire gallery on HK-TF.com.

Damn, Perceptor looks very... Pink. At last preview the United version was red right? But without the chrome. :-? Maybe a United/Reveal the shield frankenstein is called for, though I do not like the prospect of removing the pin from the chest panel.

So what did the license plate mean? Isn't that the date Perceptor first appeared in TFA or something like that?

Wow, this is a great picture:

Definitely looking forward to Perceptor. I do wish they'd show the United version so we can compare, but I suppose I should get the Hasbro one anyway.

Don't read too much into the color in the photos. Ambient light, the type of light, flash as well as the calibration of your monitor can widely distort the colors of any item in an on-screen photograph. I doubt these photos have been color corrected and I am pretty sure that Perceptor is a nice bright red.

Looks great. I ope the missle can be pulled inside the cannon to resemble a scope and make it more G1 accurate. Also looking real carefully to see if the mold would make a good reflector. If they get rid of the scope and knobs, they might be able to pull it off. But if they leave them and go for a straight repaint, it will be crap. I hopr they get it right.

The United figure is going to be a lot better unfortunately. If it doesn't have the chrome that this one has, I forsee doing some part swapping.

Mine's in the mail! Can't wait to get him and his wave mates.

Does anyone know what his license plate means? I'm totally blanking out on this.

Also for that matter, have we seen his instructions yet? "Reveal" any new head sctulpts and remould to the body?

I seem to recall it being the date Perceptor first appeared on TFA, not sure though.

I'm already sold on the Hasbro one. That chrome hits the sweet spot. I'd be surprised if there was anything on the United Perceptor to make me change my mind.

We've already seen that the United one has a complete paint deco on the vehicle mode, including the sliver striping on the sides. It also appears to use a less muted "red" plastic in favor of a more vibrant deep red in the same way that Universe Ironhide and Henkei Ironhide differ.

Hey CP will the United version have the chrome chest plate? or be painted silver? just curious. leaning more toward the United version, especially after you seen the differences in IronHides as you mentioned and another great example is Infernos as well.

Ah, that does sound nice. Do you mean this one below? Originally I assumed that toy might have been the Hasbro version. Cause either way, I personally prefer the one with chrome.

And you know what, unrelated, I'm still hoping for a redo on Universe Ironhide. That guy just didn't get a fair shake.

Yep, definitely going to have to get this one. Near as I can tell his color is pretty close to his G1 namesake and I'm liking the chrome. I know most folks are leaning towards the United version but I really didn't care for that one. Colors are just...off. I like what they did for his alt. mode. Very creative divergence from the microscope but keeping the chrome 'scope dials on his arms when they serve no purpose in either of his modes was just a little too cheesy and seems kinda forced just for the sake of paying homage.

I think that pic is of the United version and that the white/gray/silver parts are just the un-chromed plastic. I doubt very much that Takara would pass on an opportunity for chrome.

I don't think that pic that you guys posted is of United Perceptor; The paint aps i've seen on the thighs are missing, so I think thats just a pre-sale, early pic of perceptor.
I can't wait to get him, and attempt to find a microscope, or atleast a cybertronian analysis mode.

I have the Japanese TF Generations book and it shows United Perceptor with chrome plus nice trim paint. The United version makes the Generations Perceptor look very bland.

United or not, this figure is a must-own for me. I love the fresh take on the alt-mode while still keeping his bot mode almost G1. The chrome is definitely a nice touch as well as the opening chest panel. My only complaint is the lack of a hand weapon which I'm sure I can find elsewhere.

Btw CounterPunch, I'm digging that Yotsuba sig ;)

Actually I don't think they are, crazy as it sounds. I haven't seen any recent Takara toys with chrome at all, aside the small application to Grapples hook.

Here's an actual pic of the united version. It just looks like white paint to me, though I will admit the red is way better on it.
