Thanks to The Arker and Seibertron.com member Real Devastator, we get additional box images of TRU Exclusive Reissue Perceptor. Perceptor as well as the Insecticons were first found in a Canadian TRU Computer listing, under the Reissue tagline. With these images, Transformers fans can expect Perceptor and the Insecticons to be arriving at TRU in the upcoming year.

I already have an original Perceptor and Magnificus (now my SG Perceptor) so won't be buying him again. However it is a great figure and if you don't have it I suggest you do.

Ok, so why is this front page news? We already had this and the Insecticons 100% confirmed for later this year at Botcon... We also got prices, which I believe were either US$49.99 or US$59.99, but apparently Perceptor's missile does not fire (it is useable but has no spring-loaded mechanism). The way they talked about it at Botcon was almost as if past reissues didn't even have the missile, but I'm not sure because I don't own any version of this figure.

Pictures > Words. Like I said in my prior post, this is the first glimpse of what the Reissue box will look like.

Excelent, can't wait! It shall be mine :D .

But on the "upcoming year"? Wasn't it for September? No problem though, and I actually prefer only next year... September will be a terrible month for me :( .

Sweet, hope it comes to the UK.

Do those images show the true colours? They seem a little darker than I remember.

Cool! I have a KO Preceptor that is just CRAP. This will be great for my collection. A little black spray paint and my KO will become Magnificus....


Hasblow...why not create a new face sculpt? I mean there is new artwork, well sort of, so why not make a new head sculpt...

:DEVIL:

i hope he still works as a microscope like his original G1 version.

NO WAY! That's almost too good to be true. That's a must-buy, to go with my TRU re-issue Soundwave, which I keep in the box because it's such a nice package to display. I'm so glad they went with the same type of box for Perceptor.

it's good that they remembered his oft-forgot tank mode.

Yeah, I also wondered about that because it says in the box that it isn't a working microscope, but I guess that's just to say it isn'ta real microscope, so it may still have that ~10x magnification it had :) .

Even though I have the G1 version I may pick this one up to display with my classics.

I'm pretty sure E-hobby Magnificus has the 10x magnification. I'm not sure about the TFC version.

This one has better packaging than the SDCC Soundwave, but I still don't like the 25th Anniversary/TFU stuff. All re-issues should just be associated with re-issue packaging - 25th/TFU are for updated versions. Anyway, I'll get this if it's around the $30-$40 mark. Considering the SDCC SW has four cassettes and a figure of about the same size, I can't see Perceptor being more than $50. Though TRU is known for having higher priced exclusives.

The TRU Insecticons will probably be closer to $50 though; since there's three and Habsro knows they're hot.

I am totally rushing out and buying this as soon as it comes out. I have wanted a new Perceptor since my granparents threw out all the old TFs they had at their place, and I never got around to getting the TFC one because it's pretty expensive.

Excited!! :D

Edit: Oh yeah and I agree I wished they'd kept the reissue packages consistent, but it doesn't stop me from wanting it. At least the Universe packaging looks nicer than Classics.
