Inside...a Transformer Not Sold in Any Store!
- Reflector (Mail-away, 1986/1987; wide release in Japan, 1985)
- Japanese ID number: 21
- Accessories: Spectro's "Shutter Gun", Viewfinder's "Lens Laser", Spyglass' "Optic Blaster", flash cube/missile launcher, 3 missiles, telephoto lens.
Reflector was first sold in Japan in 1985 as an ordinary retail item. However, Hasbro delayed selling him in the US until 1986, and only then via mail-order from a direct-mail flyer promoting The Transformers: The Movie.
(Oddly, this came just as the character was being fully phased out of the fiction.) The toy would be a common offering in pack-in flyers from then on, at a cost of $10 and two Robot Points.

“See and you can know, know and you can destroy”
Reflector loves to observe things : vegetation, architecture, Earthen topography, and particularly comrades’ mistakes. Likes to blackmail his associates and is impressed with his own ability. Has highly developed infra-red vision that can record images in darkness, through camouflage and at great distances. In camera mode can emit powerful flash explosion that leaves enemies blind and disoriented for up to 15 seconds.

A mail item like this would most definitely outweigh the bills being delivered alongside it.
Much appreciation to "M" for his figures!
