    This is a cool set but PE's SFX is my definitive Reflector. Those lil guys pack a whollop.

    I agree. I've really never had a terrible problem with how small Scouting Force X is. No, it's not my preference, but given all the other positives with the figure (everything, basically), I'm willing to overlook it. It's a damn good set.

    And really, who's to say what an appropriate height for reflector is? All of the characters heights are open to interpretation, but Reflectors is even moreso.
    If anything I like that it gives the 84-85 Decepticons more height variation as they're comprised almost entirely of really big dudes in my display.

    I like Photron, don't get me wrong, but with all the other figures dropping between now and the end of the year and with how happy I am with my current Reflector, they can go really far down the list. All the extra bits and weird panels kind of leave me cold anyway, it's just the sexy alt mode that's got me interested.

    One SFX bot has more peronality than these 3 guys put together.

    About size? Yes bigger would have been better but ....No, I got nothing bad to say about SFX, these guys stand next to Hercules on my display and they are still the guys that my eye goes to first. Personality, Coolness and Fun Factor for the win.

    sorry tfc. you got outdid by pe on this one.

    to be fair, SFX cant really get much better. an upscale version could be useful in a masterpiece lineup, but really even the tiny guys can still pull MP off.

    I really like this guy. But not enough that I "gotta have it" at $125.
    If they had managed to keep it under $100 I might be more inclined to pick it up, but with all of the other 3P goodness as well as MP Prime coming out in the near future, I'll probably pass.

    Am having second thoughts about this set as well. Had the bots looked more like PE's just scaled up I would have been dancin, as is with one bot larger than the rest and missing the aperature on his chest... might be a pass. Will see as the time gets closer for him. I missed out Steel Core and don't want to miss out on this guy if he ends up being better than pics would have us believe.

    Really cool. If these dropped during a less congested time, theyd be bought. As is, with MPs and Uranus looming... Ill try and find money for em, but its iffy.

    I'd love to see them Photoshopped in G1 colors to see if that makes them any more tempting. As they are now, they just don't have that Reflector feel. Sure, it's a camera, but Browning is also a gun while not being Megatron.

    Although I don't see any resemblances to G1 reflector, I still want this!

    Like them but don't love them. And the price right now is a turn off.

    As much as I want it, I'll likely pass. Better size over the PE stuff, but I'm not sure I like the heads.

    This is unrelated to Reflector but Hegemon (Megatron) looks so amazing.

    Not bad, but I really don't like how one of them is clearly bigger. Isn't the point of Reflector supposed to be that they're all minions? I don't even have PE's Reflector, but I still think it's a way better realized concept than TFC's.

    Like but don't love. It's really sad that something as accomplished as this set likely will become an also ran...
