1. That Magnificus looks so deadly, I love that thing.

2. Random: PotP Prime's rifle scales well with Galaxy Upgrade Prime. It's a little chunky but that's like the whole mold anyways, it's just working for me :)

3. A Perceptor out of that mold regardless of who came out when, would be rad. If they did that I'd have to get it, and I can already think of little fanmode ways you could approximate some kind of scope or microscope out of that thing.

4. It's hard for me to talk about Reflector without mentioning my favorite one so far which was the most simple too - the Targetmaster styled Reflector that came with Skrapnel a few years back. I had it for like a week before my cat disappeared it. But I thought that was so clever a design and transformation. It's nice to see old Reflaktorglass back.

5. Seeing this current ones vehicle mode made me wish there was a 5mm peg on the bottom so he could just be used as a giant cannon. Same for Shockwaves vehicle mode.

My dad was a recreational photographer back when I was little, mainly family pictures and natural scenery. He had an old-style photo camera, same style as G1 Reflector, even with switch-out lenses. He had a knack for it. :D

I don't see that happening, really. We already had a proper Perceptor back in Titans Return. :)

Exactly!

I'm more interested in getting DJD Vos out of the mold.

Based on the size comparison with Ironhide, Refraktor(s) should be shorter than Prowl, and hopefully no taller than the Classics Seekers. I was worried they would be too tall, but it looks like they should scale pretty well, even if I don't get the Siege seekers.

They actually look like that might be dlx Classics Bumblebee height. Which is another reason why I won't buy more than one for $20.

Classics Bumblebee was a decently sized deluxe, too big to scale decently with the rest of the cast.

Nothing really new other than posting some pictures of Starscream and Soundwave after applying stickers and part from Toyhax. I do like how the part enhances the Tetrajet look for Starscream.
Depending on your preference, these sets are not bad.

I also had two Mattel WWE figures canceled. This happened once before with a Go-Saurer model kit, they actually got the kit in-stock like a week after the original release date. My paranoia wants me to say it's a set up by Amazon to get people to order from their third party sellers more.

So as of right now this appears to be random and just...dumb? What the hell, what a bummer. I’m sorry gang that’s frustrating. Hey if anyone else has their new orders canceled especially Siege figures let us know on this board.

They get a big cut from 3rd party sales?

They get a big cut from 3rd party sales?

Wouldn't they get a bigger cut of their own sales? That also assumes everyone that buys from Amazon would automatically buy from one of their sellers which isn't guaranteed.

This might have more to do with confusing US pre-order regulations that require cancellations on certain things if they aren't filled within 3 months. I can't find the specifics on the regs, but I remember Toys R Us being notorious for canceling pre-orders without warning after 3 months, several of us experienced that with Titans Return Arcee. A more mainstream example is Samsung's folding phone facing pre-order cancellation if it can't get them out by May 31st (they wont). I'm guessing the pre-orders that were canceled are the ones from February when Hasbro started their whole "see now, buy now" or whatever it's called thing. Right now would be 3 months after those pre-orders were made during Toy Fair in February.

The reason we wouldn't news this regardless is because we already posted a video review on jetfire a while ago.



That is actually good to know, I was not aware. I'm pretty indifferent to most reviewers, but Optibotimus did have one review recently that was a first, and I newsed it, but now I know why it wasn't followed up on. ;)^

Sometimes it feels like going over to a friends house to play toys, only it’s the friend who only lets you watch them play with their toys. And sometimes, when the toy is cool enough, I’m just fine with that arrangement.

Some reviewers I just have to hit that mute button I’ll be honest. It’s like I can only take so much pronounced annunciation through deviated septums.
