New Images of PerfectEffect PE-11 Scouting Force X (Reflector) and SFX-2 Shield (Spyglass)

I hate to see the price-tag on these. PE-01 was so expensive for such tiny figure, and these form a deluxe sized camera. I want them so much though....

Excellent figure overall.


You know these figures are gonna be 30 - 40 bucks each. Wish they would do all three at once for 50. That would be a fair price.

The total cost of buying these guys individually wouldn't justify the purchase if they were 40 bucks each. I just paid 45 bucks after shipping and handling for PE NINJA so i don't see these guys being any different. I had to pass on Ejector and Rewind from PE. Too much money for multiple repaints.

So 135 bucks for the sum total of a Reflector is silly. I'm speculating this end price point but i bet i'm not far off.

So, Hasbro can put time and resources into making a pink and white 2 piece shelf warmer but can't devote any energy into a 3 piece bundle of sheer awesomeness like this???
This is, without a doubt, the first 3rd party set that I've seen that has made a part of my brain scream "MUST HAVE THIS". Way to go PerfectEffect team! :APPLAUSE:

OK-I'm totally buying this set. After opening my 2-pack with Ninja/Kingbat and seeing the steps forward in quality and paint apps, I have very high hope for this next release.

They gather information from the blood of their enemies. They are going to be way too cool.

They're nice and all but I think it's a little early (10 days?) to say someone's beaten FP for product of the year. Especially when you compare both companies' lines of products and possibly more importantly, their prices.

Agreed. Except for causality, we don't really know of anything FP is doing. PerfectEffect is getting to be good, but FP is still the platinum standard.

I'm actually less impressed the more I see of these, as the initial 'wow, they made it work' factor wears off. Getting three robots to form a camera is impressive, yes, but the three individual robots seem to have boring forms that I have no desire to look at everyday. And as cool as the -ability- to turn into a camera is, I can't image being that excited about the -actuality- of holding them in the form of a camera. Cameras are boring. And while some of the kibble is used well, using the whole bottom plate as a barricade seems like a cheat.

Yeah, the 'boring' part is why I think Hasbro has Perceptor as a truck and reflector as the remold.

This is the most excited I've been about a figure in a long time. I remember when I was a kid a package showed up in the mail one day addressed to me, enclosed was the G1 mail away Reflector. I asked my Mom who sent it to me and why? She replied, "I guess they just know how much you like Transformers, and wanted to send you one." I was the envy of all the other kids in town, thanks Mom! So I've got a bit of a soft spot for ol' Reflector.

Very cool, definitely getting these. The sort of poseability and weaponary included will make for a wide range of display. Instead of thinking of their alt. mode as a camera, I see it more as long range surveillance that surpasses almost all other TFs. The missile rack means easy disposal of enemy targets, and if they somewhow fail at that, an up close target will now have to deal with 3 different bots, each with unique attack style, making them as a whole, a real deadly force. A great addition to my army of Decepticons. Can't wait to see what "Bullet" has to offer in regards to making use of the lense attachment... I'm hoping oversized gattling gun.

I don't see yet another land vehicle as being less boring than a camera, much more so, in fact; I'd have much rather seen the Perceptor retool be Magnificus in any case, as the mold really doesn't fit the character at all.

My mail-in Reflector got lost in the mail, and by the time we checked with Hasbro they were out of them. I eventually got one as an adult, but the lack of Reflector was the biggest disappointment in my childhood Transformers collecting, so this release is hitting a definite softspot.
