You've seen the gallery of Tailgate with his partner Groundbuster, but are you ready for their wavemates? That's right, it's new gallery time, and this guy's a little heavy on the electrons! Seibertron.com is excited to add to its renown galleries Generations Legends-class Skrapnel with Reflector!

Skrapnel is a modern update of Generation One Shrapnel (renamed due to licensing and trademark reasons), and Reflector not only transforms into his iconic camera mode, but also a weapon for Skrapnel to wield and cause mayhem among the Autobots. Fans of the original Generation One toyline will recognize Reflector's weapon mode as the same weapon the original Shrapnel's toy had. Take a quick glance below, and click any of the images to be taken to each figure's respective gallery should you want to view more:

Can't wait for this one. Hope he comes out soon - and that they have plans to do Bombshell and Kickback...

This isn't Reflector per se - more like Viewfinder.

That said, I'm really impressed with the weapon mode - it actually looks like the G1 version of Shrapnel's weapon.

Hope to find Skrapnel, I'm a sucker for bug-formers and he'd go great with Chop Shop, the Prime Insecticon, and the upcoming Venin/Bugly. Even if they don't make the other Insecticons (which unfortunately seems likely at this point), he'll still have plenty of bug buds to hang out with.

Shrapnel is absolutely fantastic! They kept him G1 size but upped the articulation and detail and it works.

A bit of an odd pairing with Reflector but hey....why not right?

I found Generations Cosmos today and i was just about to give up altogether. Now i gotta get all tense again waiting/hunting for this guy now. :roll: will it ever end..... ;)

It's unfortunate that Reflector in bot mode appears to have a "super deformed" set of a certain part of the male anatomy between his legs and dragging on the floor. That's unfortunate. #-o
I'm sorry....but once i saw that i couldn't unsee it.

Now I want Sharpnel. He looks very good. But that makes my FOC Kickback look so........ out of scale.

i was completely not sold on shrapnel. i dont know why, but these pics have completely turned me around. im really into him! id buy him just for the camera even. cant wait!

Personally this Shrapnel is a huge turn off. I am a huge fan of the original and this one utterly rubs me the wrong way. Not sure if it's the small head, the over-sized canary yellow chest panel or the shade of purple on the arms and feet. I'll still get him but articulation aside he feels like a downgrade from the original.

I really like Skrapnel. The only issue I have with it is the yellow chest. I would've really like to have seen them do the translucent yellow chest that could fit a small energon cube. Something along those lines would've made me really pleased. I also understand why they didn't do that, because of costs, but it would've still been pretty cool. Other than that, I think this is a great update to one of my favorite G1 toys. Here's hoping Bombshell and Kickback get the same treatment.

A transparent chest with a cavity would have been best.
A slightly darker yellow or use of darker yellow paint apps to suggest depth would have been nice too.
A better shape even, rather than it taking up his whole chest would have been a good step.

Yeah, the chest could stand to be broken up a bit more. As it is now, it's just a solid square of yellow. Something like this would've helped a lot:

Have these guys been spotted anywhere yet? I finally found Swerve and Cosmos at my store the other day, so now the other Legends don't feel like a far-off fantasy anymore.
Then again I have no idea how AoE will affect these...

As others have noted, the Reflector-gun is just brilliant...I hadn't realized how it took the shape of the original blaster. Well-played, toy designers, well-played! Now if I can just find one at a reasonable price...

Whoa! Didn't know Tankor was that short!

I like how Tankor is smaller than Rattrap. He would have been so much easier to defeat in beast machines at that size. :lol:
This must be the legion size Tankor because Rattrap is smaller than Tankor's foot LOLZ:

They put all this love and effort into the Beast Wars gang --getting them in approximate scale, making them look awesome, designing Rattrap in a way that lets him stand up in rat mode-- but when they get to the Beast Machines guy it's like "whatevs, he's not orange-and-black this time, that's good enough."

Picture an Autobot or Decepticon standing in that image along with everybody else.

We don't need a bigger Tankor. We need Cyberverse Maximals and Predacons, not giant Deluxes and Voyager (unless they make one for Optimal Optimus).

Rattrap? Approximate scale? The toy comes all the way up to Dinobot's chest!



Compare:



This is one of those cases where the original mold wins the scale proportions.
