TFA Perceptor Revealed!

Posted by:
Perceptor at 2009-01-16 10:22 pm   (site update)
Congenial salutations!'s heretofore nonexistent 2009 Section has been amended with several meritorious renditions of me, inclusive of each of my alternate modes, as depicted by the artists of Transformers Animated!  HERE, HERE & HERE.

My human consort has noted they are exceptionally pleasing on his optic sensors.  He also wishes to convey is most sincere appreciation to one Mr. Derrick Wyatt for affording us this international exclusive preview!

It goes without saying, but I'm going to say it anyway. WO-HOOOO!

I bet that microscope get's terrible gas mileage.

Perceptor's alternate mode is a little disipointing I was hoping for something closer to his G1 mode. He looks like a cybertron pickup truck with a giant gun in the back.

And he's not a triple changer just a mode to stablize him when he's working.
Perceptor said,  - 2009-01-16 09:31:43
???? What exactly is wrong with a:
"cybertron pickup truck with a giant gun in the back." ????

That's exactly what I like about it! They found a way to keep his microscope elements without making him a mass changer like the G1 days or minicon that turns into a human sized microscope! BRAV-OOO! What more could you want? NADA from me, the world's biggest Perceptor fan!

Fo' Shizzle! Autobot Smart-bot is BACK! YEAH!
Daggor said,  - 2009-01-16 11:05:32
While I'm not crazy about the face design, I like the overall attempt to make Perceptor look like Perceptor in robot mode, while giving him a more commercial vehicle mode.
Autobutt said,  - 2009-01-16 11:19:52
Wow! Now he doesnt have to walk everywhere! xp
Cant wait to see the toy.
Sidewinder said,  - 2009-01-16 11:37:19
Agreed Autobutt, I want to see this guy in toy format. He looks great so far. I also can't wait to see him on screen in action. Do we have any news on who the voice actor will be?
jimmydude said,  - 2009-01-16 12:43:57
LOVE IT! it looks great! I love they gave him bifocals in robot mode!
xghostbusterx said,  - 2009-01-16 14:14:40
it,s looks nice and cool i love it,s robot mode.
Autobutt said,  - 2009-01-16 14:46:00
Notice the dates that he was drawn. He's been around for awhile...
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-01-16 15:14:10
>>Do we have any news on who the voice actor will be?

As of now, all we know is that he'll be appearing in the comic packaged with the Jet twins (which was originally gonna be The Arrival issue 6, but never made it). No word on if he'll even appear in the toon.
Agent X said,  - 2009-01-16 15:42:13
i still say he looks like the John Bull Gundam in robot mode
but being a triplechanger makes him kick ass

now if they had a toy....
Crazyguy said,  - 2009-01-16 16:02:10
I'm sure that Perceptor will show up in the show.

After all, that IS the character model used by the animators.
cyberwuss said,  - 2009-01-16 17:42:46
Can't wait for season 3 or this guy's toy.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2009-01-16 18:02:11
Well, according to the thing on the side of the sheet, it says episode 30. Considering we're up to 26 by just the two seasons that's really early in the season. Now consider that the movie is considered the first 3 episodes, that makes 29, meaning this guy would be in the first episode of TFA season 3.
hot rod said,  - 2009-01-16 18:05:30
his alt modes are ways cooler the the G! model HE'S A TRIPLE CHANGER!!btw what kinda car is that?
hot rod said,  - 2009-01-16 18:06:03
its looks like a monster truck
G_Stratton said,  - 2009-01-16 18:28:08
did any one esle notice that perceptor & wheel jack look like the guys from Myth Busters?
TriPredRavage said,  - 2009-01-16 18:39:36
OMG, you're right G_Stratton! That's hillarious!
BlazeEagle said,  - 2009-01-16 18:49:07

I like how his wheels fold down or a hover mode! Awesome!
Lawson said,  - 2009-01-16 19:05:19
The toy of this is going to rock.
I hope we get A Lot of G1's in season3.
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-01-16 19:26:41
I can see the guy who does the voice of Wilt in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends as the voice of this Perceptor.
Sidewinder said,  - 2009-01-16 21:50:12
That's Phil Lamar, Sabrblade. He's very popular as a voice actor in cartoons and video games. Actually I think Adam and Jamie from MythBusters should voice Perceptor and Wheeljack respectively. I think it would be great.
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-01-16 22:10:53
That's him? Well, now that I think about it, Wilt does sound like Jazz (and a lot of the other charatcers he's voiced).
Autobutt said,  - 2009-01-16 23:15:42
Personally i dont think Phil Lamar would do a good Perceptor. He does Jazz awesomely, but i dont think his voice would fit as Perceptor.
Sidewinder said,  - 2009-01-16 23:44:47
Phil Lamar has a unique voice, in that he can switch from deep and heroic (Green Lantern/Jon Stewart from Justice League and Justice League Unlimited) to a guy like Wilt from Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends. He's extremely talented as a voice actor. He's no Frank Welker, but he's good. But I agree Autobutt, it's kind of hard for me to place his voice in that animation model for Perceptor.

However, Paul Eiding, the original voice of Perceptor is still around and very much active in voice over work. If they couldn't get Adam Savage from MythBusters to play him, then they might as well give fans a treat and call Paul in to do the honors. His voice work was distinctive enough that Perceptor stood out among the characters of G1.
Cassandra Norman said,  - 2009-01-17 02:06:15
that's was awsome! And oh yeah... In the 3th season of TF ANIMATED. I HOPE THEY'LL BE NO SUPERVILLIANS & MAD SCIENTIST!!! MORE AUTOBOTS & DECEPTICONS!!
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-01-17 09:13:01
Or instead, how about John Cleese? Known for his Monty Python work, and as Q in some of the 007 films.
Slashwing said,  - 2009-01-17 09:20:57
a special episode with Adam and Jamie doing perceptor and wheeljack┬┤s voices would be really neat.
Autobutt said,  - 2009-01-17 10:58:56
Ah just noticed!
i hope they switch his telescope to the left side in robot mode. xp
Cheetor2 said,  - 2009-01-17 12:41:18
I think Perceptor looks great in all his modes. I love the glasses in robot mode. Gives him that " I'm a smart guy" look. Personally I don't care who does his voice. I do like the Adam and Jamie thing though. Mythbusters is a good show.
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-01-17 14:02:18
Okay, why is the previous news bit being ignored? Does a $100 Devastator not sound appealing?
Jumpercliff said,  - 2009-01-17 18:15:16
We all got them memo on that one, Saberblade.

I never thought this would be a good update for Perceptor, and while I think Paul Eiding reprising his role would be cool, I think it would be hilarious if Kelsey Grammer did his voice.
Lynxor-prime said,  - 2009-01-17 18:22:40
I dunno 'bout you folks, but i think ol' wheeljack looks kinda like MR T from the A-Team rather than a scientist, but perceptor's nicely done and all
Mattwo said,  - 2009-01-17 20:08:06
am I the only one worried that he won't combine to form computron like the constructicons?
TriPredRavage said,  - 2009-01-17 20:30:37
...Perceptor wasn't part of the Technobots who formed Computron...
Autobutt said,  - 2009-01-17 21:22:11
Wheeljack really doesnt look like a scientist. He looks more like an engineer or mechanic or something. He even has a toolbelt sort of thing.
megatron said,  - 2009-01-17 22:11:25
i like the fact hes a triple changer :)
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-01-18 07:51:08
His G1 toy was always a triple changer.
Bellprime said,  - 2009-01-18 13:16:09
He looks cool. I'd like to see him as a Ford F-350 Super Duty. He looks like a Toyota Tundra in vehicle mode. His bot mode is nice. His telescope mode looks way cool to me.

HALO NERD transform! LOL
Fungus said,  - 2009-01-21 10:16:46
Perceptor can look at his own butt!
TFfan said,  - 2009-03-01 19:40:40
I think Perceptor looks very g1 like, but I saw him in his really G1y look, and there is a difference.
TFFan said,  - 2009-11-09 14:24:58
Cool. I seen him on the TV show. He's played by PlainTalk. Why does he sound like a real robot?
