    I am on the fence about which I want to acquire first G1 Reflector(good to great shape, authentic but no accessories) or a misb perfect effect reflector. Which would you choose and why?

    Reflector, all the way.




    ... seriously though, I'm normally not one to pay extra for MISB figures, especially when the price difference is great. However at the same time, if there's a part that I care about displaying, I'll usually make it a point to get ones with it, as I'm not a fan of partial measures.

    well no and if i did go with the G1 Reflector over the Perfect Effect Scouting Force I would buy the missing pieces as well.

    A reflector with no parts = 3 bots that turn into cubes. As mentioned, I would recommend the high end KO. I have one and the quality is top notch.

    SFX or not-Reflector is an awesome little set that packs a big bunch but belongs no where near a G1 collection.

    Original Reflector no parts = NO
    KO G1 Reflector complete = YES
    SFX for G1 = NO
    SFX for Classics = YES

    If you're getting both eventually, get the PE one first. The price on that is likely to go up, while I don't think the G1 price will fluctuate much unless he shows up in new fiction.

    If you're trying to complete your G1 collection get Reflector if the price is that good, but keep in mind you'll probably spend more then half of what you spent getting the accessories.

    If you want something really cool to play with, get the PE reflector! The PE version is one of my favorite buys of 2011.

    I prefer PE Reflector over the G1 version. Yes they are smaller in size, but they sport a lot of articulation and come armed to the teeth. Fun little guys..............:)

    I'd get PE Reflector first since I think it's its a much better toy. But of course that's just my opinion.

    I have the PE Reflector. It's made me really want to get a G1 Reflector. I just haven't found one at the right price yet.

    I want both for my collection....trusty be told I find the price point for the perfect effect reflector to be the biggest thing to get over.....I have heard that once you have the pe version that you quickly forget how much you paid. And as far as a G1 reflector you can get an incomplete for between 60-100 on its own and get the rest of the pieces at a local convention or on eBay....that's what I plan to do....I like to refinish every g1 that I get

    PE scouting force is awesome but as stated above belongs with Classics.so it depends on which style you are adding to I suppose
