Notice how its a 3 pack of reflectors? Supposedly, combining them together makes a camera.

Its only one per person though, people cant take 2, maybe its better off waiting for them to be on the club's store, you'll pay less that way.

And you can get him on e-bay after since thats what many of these people are doing anyways.

Ratchet is already there:

It makes sense when you think of it but if one is not at Botcon or has made previous arrangements to get the figures, the best time to get a figure will be later when the interest has gone away.

Sorry for being such a downer though, if someone can help you I hope they pm you :)

Ugh, more heads to add... Hey, is that Reflector head pretooled? Could anyone ask?

Question tho: Unit-3 being a car points to him being a member of the Maximal Command Security Force which Tigatron was part of as "Unit 2" (Unit 1 was dubbed Nitrostreak):

What colors does the toy have?

Unit-3 is most likely Under-3.

That golden ticket figure is really underwhelming. I'm not sure what they could have done to make it better. I'm sold on all the souvenirs now except for the Reflector 3 pack. I'll have to see it first.

So does Unit-3 have a lion head? I can't really make it out in that pic.

...and don't worry Sabre, I got your MLP joke. :lol: ;)^
It was the first thing I thought when I read the name too.

But what you dont know is that you can combine the reflectors into a camera. This is actually combiner wars reflector and was meant for retail (so yes Jelze, its a pretooled head). They were meant to combine but instead of getting the 3 pack at retail, we got Shockwave who is the retool.

Devastator can hold the combined camera mode of reflector in his arms, that was the scale hasbro was going for. However, Reflector ended up being left as a botcon exclusive by Hasbro.

I have known this for a while now but couldnt say it. Its not because I am news staff that I got this info but because my friend wrote the bios. He was the one who came up with having Under 3 (aka Unite 3) be part of Botcon and he was the one who told Hasbro they should go with a Beast Wars theme this year. He wanted that McDonalds toy to finally get a decent toy. There is no lion head but the homage is that he has the same mold as tigertron so all the big cats (jaguar, tiger and lion) have the same mold in this Botcon set. He has a different head though. The toy colours are made to match the inner robot found in the lion head.

And yes the bio will reveal that his placement in the academy and army or whatever (I am not well acquainted with this) is tied with Tigertron.

Wait wait wait...BotCon has Reflector? And he's made from three Legends Shockwaves? And he can actually combine into a camera? and it's an official product?

First off, I want the crap outa this. Second, does that mean Shockwave can combine with two of himself into a camera?

Wait till you guys get a load of the boxed set bios. One of them has implications in it that could potentially make a few heads spin!

Though, maybe not in a good way, depending on how ya'll feel about... well... uh... I'll get into more about this once the at-show staff posts pics of the bios (which I presume they will).

Aaand they're both owned by Hasbro. Coincidence? I think not!


Yeah, to be honest when I clicked into this article I half expected him to be yellow and blue.

Reflector three pack that combines into a camera?

I'd sell my left nut for this. Time to see if I can get someone already there to hook me up!

Its fine, I will tell you. Turns out Beast Wars Inferno is actually G1 Inferno.

You can do this with 3 shockwaves too. They share the same alt mode so the look of the camera will be the same (I am assuming).
