TFC Toys Photron

Post by Sixshot on Wed Dec 12, 2012 4:01 am







Manufacturer: TFC Toys
Release Date: Oct. 2012
Original MSRP: $95.99 (I'm tempted)
Aftermarket: N/A. Figure is still available as of this post.
Size/Class/Dimensions: Deluxe (4.5": Re-Lock and Hi-Reso (G1 Spectro and G1 Spyglass), 5.5": Optic Zoom (G1 Viewfinder))
Repaints: No
KO: No

Ok, I was going to review another 3rd party Reflector that I own by Perfect Effect PE-11: Scouting Force X. Which is an awesome set, by the way. My only complaint is the size (Legends Class) and I think TFC's Photron will blend into scale better with the rest of the 3rd party Decepticons that have come out so far. The Alt. Mode absolutely kicks ass and is a spot on replica of a Canon DSLR. Detailing such as grip points, texture and buttons with writing on them takes this "toy" to another level. The robot mode on each figure looks to be well articulated and hopefully can pull off some awesome poses! The only thing I don't like about the paint apps are the red forearm sections. Should have made those primer gray instead, like the upper arms and waist area. Reprolabels could really help make this figure 1,000% better with a decal set.

I have seen the Perfect Effect Reflector (one of my local buddies) has it. I knew that it was a small figure but I did not realize how small it is. If you get this one, perhaps you can do a bit of a compare and contrast review on the two Reflectors.

If I still have the other one. Probably be sold to help fund the Photron purchase. And I added a hotlink in the 1st post so anyone can go check out Perfect Effects PE-11. It's a fun little toy and would scale well against some of the iGear minibots that are also legends class (ie: Huffer, Seaspray, exc.) but not up against ToyWorlds Hegemon or TFC's Hercules.

I just received this figure and I love it!  I would highly recommend the investment in it.

Photron is still on my "to get" list and I'm watching for a sale or an Ebay auction to go by real cheap, but at the moment there's too much awesome stuff coming out at once, making backtracking to pick up older 3rd party figures kind of hard.  dammit
