    (possibly already posted, but I ain't scanning through the whole thread :)  )

    I don't have a full Relector camera yet (2/3 so far) but I ran into a cheap 'n' easy idea for those who want to expand the camera, but don't want a 3rd party expansion or the exclusive set.

    a POTP combiner fist. (preferably one with a clear cover piece on the back)

    Just fold it into a boxy shape, plug it into a foot-hole on one of Reflector's side-bots, and turn it so the clear cover-piece on the fist back becomes the front of a flash-cube.

    I figure most people who didn't ignore POTP completely have a spare fist piece or two, and depending on what you have on hand, you can choose whatever color flash cube you like.

    I bought 3 last Wednesday and went to check status on Pulse from my purchase of them. It said Sold out so i might have bought the last 3 i bet but still haven't heard anything yet. I'm hoping to hear something tomorrow.

    I would guess it was probably their transparent green paint.

    Is it just me or is figuring out ways to combine their ship modes something of a game in itself? Like, apart they look like a squadron of corvette-class ships, but combined they become a full Artillery Cruiser in varying forms, depending on your preferences..

    Also I find they make a great escort squadron for Shockwave, or better yet, Trypticon in his battleship form.

    Two things:

    (1) I'm getting stress lines on the small hole that the tripod plugs into, like someone mentioned before, on the thin side of the plastic around the hole. Any ideas?

    (2) To transform him into ship mode, you open the chest and flip down a clear/green piece. This doesn't lay flat (doesn't flip down all the way), which makes it hard to tab in to the legs. has anyone filed this down to fix it, and if so, which part of it?

    Mine got stress marks from the tripod the 1st time I put the camera together. Somewhat irritating honestly.

    That would be me!

    I had a chance to order 3 at once, but decided to only get one for now (along with Red Alert).

    G1 be damned! :lol 

    It's a good mould though, so I'll probably end up grabbing two more at some point to fill the 'Con ranks.

    I found two at Wal-Mart today. These guys are fantastic and I can't wait to find a third for combined cam mode. The paint jobs look good, I love their "glass," they have nice faces and so far, they seem to be almost as wonderfully poseable as POTP Jazz. I'm calling them by their names instead of Reflektors 1+2.

    My take on the Reflector combined starship mode. It’s a little wibbly wobbly is the only problem.

    Yes, it’s annoying but given how embedded it is in his pelvis i am reasonably confident it won’t cause breakages in the long term. On one of mine it looks more like a crack than a stress line. Hard to tell. But it’s sll compacted ‘down there’ anyhow.

    Anyone notice he doesn’t have any battle damage like the Datsun Autobots?

    Of course I found 3 at a Walmart, and this time I had the money for him (or them).......

    May get the G1 Toy Accurate Versions when they’re released since I never had the G1 Versions as a kid.....

    Laying out the spaceships in the thirds formation reminds me of the Stingray bombers in Wing Commander Prophecy.

    Just discovered that the lens attachment (the silver disc used as either the shutter button, film advance/ that one could use for Viewfinder doesn’t need to to removed for Camera Mode (the 3 shields/ shutter lens fit over the lens), so that’s a plus......

    So, how long until Takara Tomy/ Dr Wu/ Remderform make a small camera to be used by say Thundercracker?
