Seibertron.com is proud to bring to you today our latest gallery, that of Botcon 2016 Exclusives Reflector and Flash Sentry!

Reflector and Flash Sentry are both retools of the Combiner War Shockwave with new heads. Reflector utilizes Shockwave's arms and the way they tab to force 3 of his toys to come together and form his camera mode. Cameras this size will probably only be able to be handled by titan class transformers, and have a high probability of shooting you instead of capturing your image for picture frames. This is also the first modern toy of Reflector that takes into account his 3 different components to make his camera mode, unlike his Thrilling 30 toy (which turns into a gun, so both will probably shoot you). He was available to Transformers Collectors Club members as well as those who attended Botcon 2016.

Flash Sentry is a repaint of the Reflector mold, transforming into a gun that can be held by any of the Combiner Wars figures. He can also use the Shockwave arms to plug into Reflector and help form a camera, or if you somehow had 3 of him he could make his own translucent camera mode. Flash Sentry was only available to Golden Ticket Attendees. He is a member of the Photons, a subgroup of Decepticons led by Reflector.

I donno, man. The innovation is great, but if that's a camera then one wall and no roof makes a house....

thats a very clever use of the shockwave mold ;)^
with a little bit of retooling we could have something very close

I find this whole ordeal disrespectful to all the fans and collectors who've been waiting YEARS for a decent Reflector at retail. Not a $90 half@ssed remold from a washed up greedy 2nd party.

I blame Hasbro for this.

That's hilarious, as it is a hasbro design, the original use for the mold if I'm not mistaken. It was also hasbro who gave it to funpub for them to use. It was likely canned due to not making a very good camera mode or something. And for a 3 pack, it was no more expensive than anything else they've released >:oP

He did say he blamed Hasbro for it rather than blaming Fun Pub, so he's at least blaming the right guilty party.

Just saying that they had their reasons for not releasing it (like cw ratchet, and all the many, many others that we don't know about), probably because they couldn't find a size class to put 3 identical figures together in, and that parents wouldn't buy it if it was, can't just throw out the rules of business just for some G1 fans >:oP

I absolutely adore reflector and still think it is the clear cut winner from BotCon 2016 exclusives which is probably the reason why this is the only one I bought.

Makes me wonder which fiction, though. Reflector's bio alludes to the events of IDW's Spotlight: Wheelie with LV-117, as well as to the IDW version of Jhiaxus, but all of the other toys released in the same assortment as Reflector (i.e. - the BotCon 2016 exclusives) fall into the IDW Beast Era continuity circa "Dawn of the Predacus" (save for the different versions of the custom class Ratchet/Medix figure, as the custom class figures don't always match the theme of the BotCon they're a part of), which is a separate continuity from the main IDW one. Meanwhile, Flash Sentry's bio refers to the Photons, Reflector's subgroup from the Wings Universe, as well as to the Battle of Autobot City, which most certainly did not ever take place in the main IDW universe.

I think it's simply bringing in elements of IDW - LV-117 and Ore-1 - into Wings/IDW BW and is little more than a cute reference.

I was under the impression Reflector didn't make the cut on account of deco similarity - rereleasing the primarily purple Shockwave as the primarily purple Reflector wasn't going to knock any socks off.

Ah, these old chestnuts. How on Earth does this constitute disrespect, or greed etc? Reflector's a small name, didn't get a huge role, and wasn't even released at retail (well, apart from Japan), so he was released as a minor retool of an existing figure from a niche seller. That's a pretty sensible decision, really.

You know, if we did get a new-mold Reflector toy, if they don't fancy doing a camera mode, a police surveillance van would be a cool alt-mode for them to combine into.

I had a little bit of fun tonight based on the "Xzibit Meme" with the last image I quoted.

Heh. Great minds as they say. ;)

I'm going to submit it to the TF Comedy Prescribed page on Facebook if that's fine by you. If you have no problems, how do you want me to tell them to credit you?

You can just reference my Seibertron user name. Or put a little "pic by carytheone" text in a corner. Whatever works for you.

Glad you liked my silly pics. ;)^
