    Hmmm....interesting. Depending on the price of this, I might get them.

    I'm waiting for the MFT version and REALLY hope that it'll be a KO of these molds....

    I bet that's just a piece over it so it's a more satisfactory shutter release button.

    Are we sure this isn't MFT (or an incestuous project, a la NB Factory)?

    At this rate we should turn third party legends scale manufacturing into a nighttime soap opera a la Dallas or Dynasty.

    TELL ME YOU WOULD NOT BUY AN OIL DERRICK THAT TRANSFORMS INTO JR EWING!

    *ahem* sorry

    How hasn't that been everyone's reaction?! I guess they will fix it, but damn why not before posting pics?

    MFT probably has nothing to worry about (unless this another spin-off of MFT).

    If this isn't an offshoot of MFT, then MFT need to show off how their Reflector is going to be. So far, this company has my attention with this. Oh, maybe I could get Reflector from this company and get the toy-version from MFT (if they do that deco, that is).

    I've been told that 47% of 3rd party companies, 27$ of the board's members, half of the board of directors of Hasbro, the New York Jets, Senator John McCain and every single woman from Poland are all subdivisions of MechFansToys.

    Legends scale Reflector? That's got to be tiny... each bot would be at most the height of a Legends minibot I guess?

    He's in witness protection.

    10.5cm?

    Perfect for CHUG and LC, perhaps even MP, but definitely too big for Legends/Scout yes?

    I mean, it's neat that it's happening, I know a lot of people want but can't get the original set (I got it at clearance many years ago :D ) but I feel like an OS misses the point somewhat. Perfect effects were making figures who squeezed the maximum engineering and quality out of their diminutive sizes, making them bigger seems odd, and means the engineering may seem a bit basic

    Likely. Still... an odd way to display a, "hey, look, we improved something!"

    Kinda wish it had eye and mouth slots too... give him a juggernaut look.

    Well that's nice. Missed out several used sets of the original PE version in my local FB group.

    Like metaphorge, I wondered at first whether this wasn't just MFT under a different name. We'll see, I guess.

    Seems like they have new lower legs and feet. Interesting. But I'd prefer to see new, more toon accurate heads!

    I will be keeping an eye on this. I bought the PE set in the non-G1 colors thinking it would sate my need for a Reflector for my CHUG collection, but I would much prefer the G1 colors now...
