    Wow. TF fans will argue about ANYTHING LOL

    I used to feel like the Decepticons needed troops but all the Seekers and Soundwave minions are quickly filling in my shelf. So I'll stick with one. Maybe I'll end up with 3 if I feel like doing some customizing but I'm not attached to the character at all.

    I'm probably only going to buy 1 Generations Reflector, depending on how great the figure is.

    I may buy one of these and that is a big may. I would have preferred if Reflector was a new mold that comprised 3 small figures that composed a digitial camera. That would be the most logical update this recoloring is just lazy imo and I frankly don't plan on buying too many. I plan on buying Blurr and have already bought Sidewipe and Sunstreaker and plan on buying Redalert. At some point it gets old and too expensive to pay for laziness imo.

    I plan on buying Perceptor only. I am usually pretty cool with Hasbro and Takara modernizing various characters alt modes, but Reflector is one of the few who still has a relevant alt mode in the present.

    i'm buying neither generation perceptor nor generations reflector. because I'm not a fan of hasbro giving vechicle based alt modes to those microchange hasbro toy molds.

    I'd prefer proper exact updated homage molds. instead od getting radical updated homage molds.

    microscopes aren't outdated as their still used today & will be used in the future. hasbro can create a perceptor that transforms into a microscope & then a tank. have the toy be a voyager since it'll be so complicated due to it being a tripple changer.

    as far as reflector goes. why not a deluxe size digital camera that seperates into legends sized robot modes or 3 very tiny ( 3 inch sized) basic sized robot modes.

    Ok, to set some records straight here:

    1) I won't buy a Reflector that doesn't look like Reflector.

    2) I will buy a Reflector that looks like Reflector

    3) You can buy a Reflector that doesn't look like Reflector.

    4) You won't buy a Reflector that looks like Reflector.

    5) I won't bother too much about who's getting bought & who aren't.

    I hope that's not difficult to comprehend. :p

    Because they have to sell Wal-Mart on that idea. The last time we got a pack of Legends combiners, it was a 100 foot tall character in an obscenely high-grossing motion picture. Not saying your idea wouldn't be cool, but it's not like this is some kind of no-brainer to release a Legends combiner of everything that combined in G1.

    Frankly, Reflector is such a nobody that granting his name to a retool of a real character is probably about right.

    If the bot mode looks like the animation model in the G1 cartoon, I will be picking up 3 just like I plan with the Sweeps. I'm so impressed by Hasbro's upcoming Generations line-up!

    It seems feedback right now is fairly mixed. I think for every 3 people buying 3, you've got 1 or 2 passing totally. I think it'll even out :) 

    For those wanting a camera, there's always this mold:

    Well I'm looking at getting 3 Reflectors just to fill out my Megatron lead Decepticon display. A perfect video review down the line may seal the deal but a terrible one may alter my plans all together. And I agree that Reflector should have been a digital camera that transformed into three smallish scout class figures. Maybe some 3rd party company will deliver on this. I'd definetly snatch it up with a quickness.

    Here's my current Reflector

    [​IMG]

    I think the Perceptor mold looks ok and i'll pick it up. But i wont be getting 3 and i could'nt care less if anyone does as i'll probably have to get him online cos distribution is shite in the Emerald Isle.
