    So, Hasbro said they have Reflector in mind for the repaint of Generations Perceptor. Will you buy three of this mold? Or will you buy one?

    Viewfinder was the figure with the lens so he looked different then Spyglass and Spectro (if only for the giant lens on his chest). So does that have an effect on how you will purchase?

    Why would you buy three? They're clearly going the Insecticon route and ignoring that Reflector was the the shared alt-mode. Just like they ignore Insection was a sub-group name every time they name some insect con.

    um cause there are three reflectors in the g1 cartoon so i want three reflectors on my shelf, who gives a crap if he doesn't turn into a camera, it is ment to be the representation of the character model of g1 reflector, so i want three for my shelf, the decepticons could use the extra troops

    One is enough. I'd rather spend $25 on other figures rather than duplicates.

    Well actually he's a repaint of Perceptor, so not really. And in G1, Reflector was the name of the camera alt-mode. The three bots that combined to form Reflector had separate individual names.

    One will suffice. They don't combine so what's the point?

    This. Reflector is the alt-mode that Spyglass, Spectro, and Viewfinder share.

    It's like having a repaint of Rapido named Ice Cream Truck and convincing yourself you must have two.

    i bet the head is based on the animation model, and i don't give a flip about the g1 toy, i need figures to fill out decepticon ranks, and what better way than to get three reflector bots

    So you're willing to bet Generations Reflector has a camera for a head?

    Actually, weren't there numerous Reflector clones in the cartoon?? If so you could probably buy more then three.

    I'm planning on getting at least three. I'll remove the shoulder cannons if possible on two - so that viewfinder is easily distinguished. And there's a chance I'll army build if I llike the mold. :)

    Ok people. THIS is Reflector...

    Note the distinct lack of a head sculpt, or a head.

    That's probably because it's in alt mode?

    apparantly logic has been kicked to the curb

    look, anytime megatron addressed one of the bots in the show, he called it reflector, i am getting just three, no need to go too crazy, i need the members for my shelf, with those three, and scourge and his three sweeps, i will be set

    No kidding.

    Reflector doesn't have a robot mode, he separates into three different bots. So Reflector IS the alt-mode, which is the point I've been making.

    You can't have a G1 accurate head sculpt of Reflector.

    :lolol 

    Anyway, I agree with GC. I've had Real Gear Zoom-out, Wire-tap and Photon as my Reflector trio for a coupla years now. Some g1 colors would be nice ;)
