Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Skrapnel Action FigureIf Skrapnel looks familiar, that's because Hasbro released Skrapnel with Reflector [FOTD #962] in 2014. It's very similar to the first release but in different colors, and now it's missing his gun - a tiny "Micromaster" Reflector that can turn from robot, to camera, to blaster. It was a heck of a cool accessory, and now instead you get a trading card. Thanks, inflation.

Given the original release's high secondary market price, a new run makes sense even if it's somewhat rare for Hasbro to release the same toy in pretty much the same deco in Generations. Starscream got updated deco from Classics to Universe, and we got a rerun of Cosmos last year, but that's the exception - generally, we just get a new toy. We've had three Windchargers since 2011. Aside from digitally swabbing out Reflector form the new packaging, the photography on the cardback is pretty much identical too.

Transformation is the same, and it's a little weird but everything eventually massages in place. There's no place for Titan Masters or Prime Masters to ride, as that would require new tooling. Fans of the original toy may delight in adding another Insecticlone to the army, but for the rest of us this may be skippable. This is a great figure if you missed the original release, but if you have it? There's not much here of value. It doesn't match the other Insecticons very closely, so you should easily be able to discern new from old.

At ten bucks it's a decent deal - even if it was a better deal in 2014. You'll still need an accessory. With the caveats, I'd say get it if you're so inclined - it's fun if you need one.
