We’re back with another new Transformers toy gallery, and this time, we are grabbing our red microscopes and taking an up-close analysis of the Autobot scientist, Perceptor!
Perceptor got a release in the Generations line back in 2011’s Reveal the Shield subline, but fans had issue with this release, not least in his long face. Titans Return updates Perceptor again, this time with a boxy look and the original microscope alternate mode, and a more faithful headsculpt. The robot mode is solid, and has nice articulation. The microscope mode is a microscope, every bit as exciting – or not – as the original. The tank mode is not documented in the instructions, and does feel like a bit of an afterthought, but it is a nice bonus. Convex seems to be extremely hard to fit onto this tank mode – we can see how it is possible to do it, but it doesn’t seem to fit. Perceptor’s interaction with his Headmaster is microscope mode is pretty awesome, as he’s examining it through his own microscope.
Overall Perceptor is a fun toy, and we’ve enjoyed playing with him in the process of creating this gallery. Check him out below:
