4 out of 5 stars overall

The perception of Perceptor is that this figure is pretty solid. It does great homage to the character and is a stable version in alt mode. This is a nice figure to add to the collection.

Let me start off my saying I am a huge fan of FansToys. Their dinobots line and Quakewave are all 5-star bots. For some reason, their version of Perceptor falls short of expectations. With that said, this is probably the best 3rd party Perceptor available. His colors are bright, has diecast feet, and is MP scale. The reason for the low rating is the shoulders detach if you move the arms. Mine figure also has his left elbow joint loose, so if holding his gun, his left forearm falls down. If this figure was priced lower, I would have given it 3 to 4 stars, but considering this figure costs over $100, it is not worth the price.

Even with the QC issues, this figure rocks. Perceptor was one of the 1st Transformers figures that I had as a kid. Tesla has brought back that feeling & then some. I do agree with the other reviewers on it's issues, but considering other companies who have done far worse with other figures, Fans Toys have developed a certain reputation amongst the third party scene & Transformers fans alike. I looked very forward to their future offerings & is hoping that FT-10 will be their version of Skyfire which would more than likely be a lot better than Daca Toys's version

This is to date the best representation of Perceptor that we have ever seen, even as a stand alone robot he's truly an eye catcher. Fans Toys has the niche third-party masterpiece market on lock and everything they put out turns to gold. But unlike most of their other offerings Tesla is somewhat underwhelming in certain areas, especially for a fans toys product. Don't get me wrong Tesla IS a stunner, plain and simple. But the honest truth is the transformation leaves a lot to be desired and there are some QC issues that make you scratch your head because these are the two categories where Fans Toys always has others beat.
Pros: Price point, price point, price point. Did I mention the Price point? Gorgeous figure, very poseable, die cast, chrome, great weight, beautiful packaging, overall a solid offering from the premier 3P company.
Cons: Simple Transformation, borrrring weapons, QC issues with the shoulder popping out while posing, and be very careful when folding out the tank tread panels (mine were scary tight.)
The synopsis is simple: For the price it's a fantastic figure and it fills a nice void for fans of later season characters, especially those who are tired of cars and repaints. I personally would have waited another month and paid a few bucks more for better weapons and a QC check or two. Fans Toys always delivers, but with so many Bots vying for attention these days it's easy to see how Tesla got a little overlooked. If you loved Perceptor or just robots in general I highly recommend buying Tesla, just go into it knowing that it's not Fans Toys best. Still better than the rest though and that's why I give it 4 stars.

this piece is an excellent make of Perceptor.
Impressive to the detail and all features of a toy. Yet, then kicks in two issues:
1. A missing transformation configuration in the manual, as Tesla aka Perceptor is a triple changer. the manual misses out the cannon mode
2. I had received 4 additional limbs that point out that their are QC issues in the limbs which are showing out after I had received it by 24 hours....
Fantoys are making some really good toys and lovely designs, they should continue on upping the game not relaxing about it...
