    I see the chest piece is similar to the center Reflector character other than that I see no other similarities.

    One, i never buy multiples of any TF, unless it's something like the HFTD Insecticon. Besides it doesn't combine into a camera.

    I think the headsculpt sorta matches the cartoon model. Similar nose and chin anyway.

    But that mold still looks like a dud to me. I don't think it makes a good anything.

    Spyshot 6 makes a better Reflector. It was great. A real stand-out figure. Maybe they could've done an alternate headsculpt for that.

    Yea, I can see that as well. I wonder what they plan on doing for the focus knobs on his arms with the Reflector deco.

    He looks way better when he's properly transformed.

    I'm picking one up.

    Don't know yet,I mean he's no longer a combiner (the first g1 combiner mind you) so why bother?
    This would,ve been the perfect oppertunity for that power core line but it safe to say that line is forgetable
    So I'll check it out and then go from there....

    As many as I can find. It will be a pretty hot item since reflector has only had K0s reproductions after the original 80s mail away up to this point.

    Hoping the perceptor mold has a workstation base section as speculated. That could work for reflector.

    Gee I really don't know that much about reflector as a character other than he's a spy and they all kind of have a weird multi-talk speech pattern like twins. Apparently they did some stuff for them in IDW spotlight wheelie. The clones are usually based on the one with the neat chest spiral thing. Viewfinder? Sunbow never showed the dudes as being anything other than viewfinder clones anyway. No red or blue cube guys.

    As for perfect effect reflector. I'm not judgemental, but Why abandon a official product for a fan produced item? Just more concerned with completeing my Has tak line.

    I'm gonna wait for Perfect Effect's Reflector. It looks like there will be 3 bots and that they'll combine to form a camera.

    You should buy 4...

    and send one to me, since I'm very bad at finding stuff at brick & mortar stores, and I always miss online preorders before they sell out! :lol

    I just counted & my Classic Con collection is at 53! This may actually effect my decision as to buy 1 or 3. At first I was thinking 3 for sure, but with the scourge/sweeps mold, G2 Ramjet, and possibly Sunstorm or the last rain maker mold coming up...Damn, space is at a premium.

    Because the perfect effect figures are likeley to be truer to the g1 character models rather than being all clones and will probably combine that combined with the fact for some of us (if you HAVE to have 3) there probably wont be much of a price diffrence AND your getting a new mold and i honesly dont understand why you would buy the hasbro version but its all horses for courses man.

    I also dont see why anyone would want one refllector robot but thats just me
