More on the Reflector trio, from More Than Meets The Eye.
First, a more proper shot of Reflector...
I remember watching MTMTE back in 1984, and I remember a Reflector scene that was one of the most memorable scenes for me. This was shortly after the Decepticons were revived by the Ark. Megatron sent out Decepticon teams to scout for energy. Starscream was dispatched with Soundwave and Rumble; Thundercracker was dispatched with Reflector.
Reflector and Thundercracker ended up on a plateau, when in the distance, they saw dust clouds caused by an Earth vehicle. Deciding to get a closer look, Thundercracker said: "Ok, Reflector, let's see what you can see." Reflector transformed into a camera and dropped into the hands of Thundercracker. Thundercracker looked through the camera and snapped a photo of the Earth vehicle - an orange repair van.
Admittedly not the most interesting scene and perhaps not as interesting as what the other scouting team did with Rumble, but it was memorable to me nonetheless. Over the years, I still kept using the phrase "let's see what you can see". If it's any indication, the guys at TF Wiki appear to be quite fond of this phrase too as it is used as the caption for certain pages there.
Screen captures of the scene from More than Meets the Eye (Part 1)
"I can't believe the Autobots survived." - Reflector trio speaking simultaneously, commenting on Hound's rescue by Ratchet, Cliffjumper (and Grapple).
"Neither can Megatron. He'll blow a fuse when he finds out... Hey, what's that?" - Thundercracker to Reflector
"Let's find out" - Reflector trio replying to Thundercracker simultaneously.
"Ok, Reflector, let's see what you can see" - Thundercracker to Reflector
*Reflector transforms and shrinks into camera mode*
*snap* (wow, Reflector is a polaroid camera too!)
This is my favourite shot from the above scene.
Toy diorama trying to replicate that scene. As can be seen here, PE-Reflector's scale is actually quite on the money, even though it is tiny. (Note: for the eagle eye-ed photographers out there, I did something with the lighting to make Thundercracker look more light blue in the photo than the toy actually is, no post-editing, this is the raw photo!)
Close up shot of Reflector. My, these guys look really good.
