    Fake mortar mode when you only have 1 Refraktor and try to cheat through MS Paint


    Actual mortar mode if you're lucky enough to have found 3 Refraktors


    Comparison with G1

    Great toy... once you have a set. Expensive (especially for what I paid!) but worth it for those who grew up with the 84-86 era Transformers.

    The camera mode is great and the robot mode really sings to the G1 cartoon Reflector.

    The jet mode... yeah well it's a non-event, really. But I don't care because I can make the camera mode.

    I am looking forward to this figure but I think saying a toy is goddamn freaking rare when it is actually only just start being founs in stores is very misleading. It is not even shortpacked.

    If you have 3 you can make a better-looking jet mode. Of course, the camera is the main draw, but the combined jet is a thing you can also do if you feel like it.

    Everything's a jet these days once you lay it flat

    Got 2/3 of this fine boy today. Very details and solid figure with really nice colours. Size would be an issue, but he is approximately a Cybertron scout, which fits well. One more of this guy to round out my three and my 1984 Decepticons will be complete.
    Seeking the following sealed:
    - CW Vortex
    - CW Brawl
    - Siege Ratchet
    - Siege Rainmakers

    Waiting to Arrive:
    - WFC Unicron (Zing 2021)

    His arms seem abnormally long in a lot of these photos...

    More than anything I'm impressed with your MS Paint skills.

    Finally completed the set! I added stickers (actually meant for TR Astrotrain) to give blue and red highlights to "Spyglass" and "Spectro." I've left my "Viewfinder" unaltered.
