Which Deluge? The G1 Aquaspeeder?


Or the G2 Color Changer (I'm assuming him)?


Looks more like blue.


The one that appeared in IDW during All Hail Megatron so the Color Changer, I forgot that the Aquaspeeder was a separate character.

He's not perfect but there isn't really much else to use in place for him.

I do a bit of repurposing for figures in my collection such as buying multiple Hasbro Hardheads to serve as heavy Autotroopers with the Takara version being Hardhead himself.

Guess I had a total mental block. I'm sure I knew that, I did order him, but for some reason I still keep thinking he's an Autobot. Probably because we've already got this mold in four different colors and it's hard to believe they'd give it the Seeker treatment and do it a fifth time and still be a Decepticon. His name doesn't really fit the others either. Spyglass, Spectro, Viewfinder, Refractor, and Scrapface.

I have 2 of Refraktor, once I get Scrapface he'll be the center of the camera. Kinda break up the boring and monotonous purple.

@Emerje Well, obviously Scrapface is not meant to be a part of the Reflector team.

However, his name does still fit the camera theme. Ever heard of a scrapbook?

Maybe he'd be better if they'd made purple - you know, his actual main color - the base plastic color like sensible people would do. I'm emailing them to ask what the hell they were thinking.
Rodimus Prime wrote:Same with Megatron. The paintjob just didn't seem right for him.
How come? Just going by photos the silver (which cartoon-based Megatron toys should be when budget permits, since that's what his animation model is trying to approximate) looks way better than the original release's dull gray.

Another difference between you and me, then. Aside from Orange Lionizer I honestly have little interest in them considering how SIEGE cheaped out on the gun Battlemasters.

But that's just it, Megatron's paint is not silver. It's more like shiny charcoal. He looks like a highly polished shoe, instead of something metallic.

Of course, still the same mold nonetheless, just strange seeing the mold without a camera themed name.

If that was intentional (I really doubt it) then that's some BotBots level naming.

I think it was intended, Emerje. I mean, I can't think why else they'd give him that name.
I'd still like to see a brown-and-black redeco named "Brownie" (assuming they could get away with that trademark-wise).

Ahhh. It looked silver in the photos. Sigh...

Not the one I saw at the store. It's darker than silver, it's more like gun metal gray.

Looks like the same treatment that SS KSI Boss got, definitely something I would call silver, if not a bit tarnished, which is perfect. The difference between regular Siege Megatron and Netflix Megatron is similar to the difference between SS DotM Megatron and battle damage Megatron.

Netflix Transformers Series Ultra Magnus and Deluxes Found at US Retail

Postby william-james88 » Sun Apr 19, 2020 9:03 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
The Walmart exclusive Netflix Transformers Series Spoiler leader pack which includes Rung, some energon cubes in putty and a crispier version of Siege leader Ultra Magnus has been found at Walmart by The Real Magnus P.I. (what an apropos username). It was specifically found in Utah and the price was just a few pennies shy of $60.

The deluxes were also found. This particular sighting come from the Queen City, Cincinnati, and was posted on the forums of Allspark.com.

If you want to see more pictures of them, you can check out the article we published yesterday.

Yep, it's a teaser for how the Netflix series is going to pan out, with major spoilers for the entire run. The spoiler itself is easily seen when one looks at the deco Magnus was given.

Me too. But I would be a bit upset about buying the previous version, which could have had the peg just as easily.
