Transformer of the Day for February 5, 2009


-Faction: Decepticon
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Reconnaissance
See and You Can Know, Know and You Can Destroy”
-Notable Toy: Diaclone (Takara, 1983)

Notes: Pity poor Reflector. A Decepticon who never appeared on North American store shelves (other than as a decoy bonus in 1987), he is a key part of the Decepticon army in the first year of the cartoon. But let the Decepticon army ranks grow with newly released toys, and Reflector is quickly shuffled aside. While a special offer in the mid-1980s allowed him to officially join our toy ranks, we still wait for the day to see a reissue of some kind that better reflects his onscreen presence.

(For more information on Reflector, check out the Generation One Transformer Bible.)
