    G1 Accurate Reflector WIP

    -LATEST UPDATE ON PAGE 5-

    Hey all. Whittling away at my mile long commissions list. This is for Supervir2. He wanted a Reflector that looked as close as possible to the G1 cartoon. It took some doing and about 8 Acid Storms but I think I finally did it!
    The shutter on Viewfinder rotates so that the shutter is "closed" in bot mode and then can accept the peg for the lense. It was extremely challenging to get the look of both the camera AND bots to match thier cartoon counterparts. The original toy, as we all know, didn't hit the mark. The heads are modified Classics Astrotrain heads and 2 more false heads were made for the shutter button and reel winder on the top of the cam.
    The tops on Spyglass and Spectro flip back and form thier backpacks (which they had in the show) Still needs some work but the transformation process is all figured out. Next up is weapon storage and the lense will split apart and become 3 rifles. No parts-forming. As you can see in the last pic, they will fit in nicely with the Classics line.
