    pe's because it's under 100 for it, tfclub's pricing after seeing what they want for devs is over my budget, i'd just stick with the g1 if it came to that. and pe's look more detailed, but i do like the updated camera of tfclub's

    TFC versions for me! The PE set... They're just so tiny. They weren't that tiny in the cartoon. I also want to say that the purple color is all wrong but that's just probably the camera's fault.

    No Hasbro option?

    I'm getting the Perceptor retool and calling it a day.

    I MIGHT get three of him.

    PE. Look more like the G1 cartoon figures. In scale with PE Rumble and Frenzy, thus making them more in scale with the other Classics-type figures. They're out very soon and I know how much I'll be dropping for them.

    I am undecided yet, the PE set is very attractive in terms of looks and price, which i had figured would be at least $30 more than it is.

    Only Reflector I MIGHT buy is a Hasbro redeco. It's not a character that's worth more than $15 to me. I don't care what they transform into, I just think they are funny little generics.

    Both! TFC version is the G1 toy homage while PE version is the G1 cartoon homage. Both great in their own right. Not to mention they are toys from two of the top 3rd party companies along with Fansproject.

    None.

    Out of all the 1984 charatcers I want who have yet to see a decent update, Reflector's at the bottom of the list.

    The PE one as its three robots that form one alt, they look like there g1 character models and are scaled apropriateley

    Also i know its not confirmed properley but you missed the perceptor repaint hasbro hinted at off the poll


    I think you need to rewatch the cartoon then as g1 junkies post below mine shows they where that small and that size was consistant whenever they
    where drawn

    [​IMG]
    I dont know why so many people forget how big they where

    Perfect Effect for me, I like the fact that they are all the same size between each other.
    And I also think there scale is going to be more accurate to Classics than the TFC one.

    I thought they were going to be to small, but then I thins pic made me remember that
    they were actually depicted as being that small in most episodes:

    The PE set looks awesome. Judging by their frenzy/rumble set that I own, it will be good and worth the price. I may pick up the other one later on.

    Both. Each looks nice to me. Hell I'll get the Hasbro one when it's released too.

    PE. The other set with the one huge one and two little ones looks silly as hell.

    The Hasbro one - not even a blip on my radar. That mold does not fit in any way.

    Depending on how it turns out, I might get Hasbro's repaint/retool of Perceptor.

    Edit: To be a little more specific, just one copy. I'm not the troop-building type of collector.
