I'm wondering if Sylent is thinking they didn't make a Reflector toy. I seem to remember somebody thinking that a while back.

They did, of course. I know because I own it. It was a mail-in offer.

I remember briefly discussing the toy with you, but I was referring to the cartoon. He was never killed onscreen or offscreen, he just vanished... unless I missed an episode somewhere.

Ah, never mind then.

I frankly don't remember seeing him in the show at all, but I haven't watched it (except a few episodes that the library had on DVD) since I was a kid. I'm sure he was there, and I used to watch the show pretty much all the time, so I likely saw him, but he must not have been very memorable to me because I can't dredge up a single memory of him from the show.

Reflector was never seen again after Transformers the Movie. He attended Starscream's coronation.

Yeah, he/they were all over season 1, then grew distant as more characters evolved.

Oddly enough, I had Reflector as a kid- two versions of him. When the Transformers blew up the toy industry, there were all kinds of knock offs of characters being released out of Japan, and I had a KO reflector before he was available as a mail away offer. I also had this weird version of Shrapnel that was primarily brown in color.

I find it humorous that a Starscream's Coronation toy was made.



Right after this, Galvatron blows him away.


"Who disrupts my coronation ceremony?!? Megatron, is that you?"

"Here's a hint..."

+ YouTube Video

In the books, weren't Megatron and Galvatron supposed to be rivals or something? I don't remember them being the same bot.

Galvatron was from an alternate time-line where Unicron turned Megatron into Galvatron (like the movie), unlike the movie, Galvatron and Unicron defeated the Autobots. Galvatron was given Earth to rule over, resulting in the devastation of North America.

Back in the main timeline, Unicron pulled Galvatron from the other timeline in order to be his warrior against the Autobots. Feeling like he was being used as a pawn, Galvatron rebelled against Unicron and helped the Autobots and Decepticons defeat Unicron. Megatron, who was merged with Ratchet and later separated, was found by Galvatron and the two had a little skirmish before Galvatron realized destroying Megatron might have ill effects on him.

As of the most recent Re-Generation 1 comics, Galvatron is on Earth along with Starscream and Shockwave, and Optimus Prime. Megatron is dead.

Edit: Athough...Galvatron is basically like the Hawkman of TF continuity, so what I said above is only part of the convoluted story, but as far as I know that is the Galvatron that "stuck".

Galvatron

I've been buying the Kre-O Micro Changers Combiners lately. They're pretty cool, especially when you mod 'em to add in the extra team members from the blind single figure packs.

This thing is EXpensive. I saw it for $250 at a toy show a couple of weeks ago. For as much as people are charging, that tape player should be functional.

I would swear I saw a version at my FLGS once where the player WAS functional. Has such a thing ever actually been made, or am I tripping?

The only reference I can find on-line is to a version that was to be a functional MP3 player. Maybe that's what I saw?

I too, remember seeing a functional tape-playing Soundwave years ago. It wasn't made by Hasbro or affiliated with Transformers, though. IIRC, it was silver. I think it was inside of one of those novelty shops in the local mall.

EDIT: I think it had a functional radio, not tape player.

Masterpiece Soundwave is only that expensive because it's still a japanese release. Just wait for the american release; much cheaper.

The one I saw was almost certainly official (my comic shop doesn't generally carry knockoffs, and it LOOKED genuine. Plus it wasn't cheap, as I recall). Perhaps it was this one?

That's the one that plays MP3s.
