Good thing I sold my G1 Perceptor with box recently. I probably wouldn't have even gotten the $60 I made on it after they re-release him!

Well apparently all hope is not lost for Transformers...I mean now that I think about it, some of the best figs that came out recently were all the ones that followed the last movie's toy line.
BRAVO!

Best part: no launching missles that will be made ridiculously long for US laws. At least on the insecticons.
Now the vac metal parts could be made into a softer plastic that can't be chromed, or modded for safety like Primes smokestacks.
If so, it hopefully won't be too noticeable.
Go
bombshell's long nose comes to mind, but kickbacks wings were rounded in earlier releases since the very originals were like knives.
Good to hear, thanks for passing it on!

NICE.

Just got into collecting G1 reissued Transformers. Will pass on Perceptor but I'm all over the Insecticons.

Let's just hope they're easier to find than that TRU exclusive Soundwave that came out last year!

While Perceptor's colors are odd, his figure was pretty cool because, along with G1 JetFire, he has really good pose ability compared to most of the G1 TransFormers. Plus, coming from the MicroMan line, he could also turn into a tank, not just a microscope and robot.

It's very cool to get the three main Insecticons in one box.

cool, I want to pick up all of them! I had kickback as a kid, but always wanted all 3! Definite good news.

I plan to army build Insecticons. In fact, I will probably buy all I find. I may even attempt to recruit some people here to pick some up for me. I want at least ten sets. If I ever move into a bigger place, the guest bedroom is getting decorated with an Insecticon theme: Black furniture, purple bedspread, yellow pillows, a big Decepticon symbol over the bed, and my army of Insecticons on a shelf

It is not I who am crazy, it is I WHO AM MAD.

DON'T TOUCH THE HISTORYERASER BUTTON, YOU FOOLS!!!

I will be getting both reissues as I missed the insecticons japanese release a couple of years ago. Now we need a Blaster to compliment Soundwave.

Was confirmed yesterday that Perceptor's launcher will have no spring, so the cosmetic aspect will probably remain unchanged.
