    In your opinion, which is the better modern day blaster, Universe 2.0 for ~$15 on ebay, or device label Blaster for a lot more ~$60-$70?

    universe is okay, but im not a fan. device label to me is great if you also have a music label sound wave. it all boils down to opinions, to me id go with label

    Device Label captures him well. I would love to start spending mad money on the more expensive figures, but if I did then I wouldn't stop so I'm not going down that road. Universe is Blaster by name, but other than that, he is not Blaster. Plus at least DL Blaster is a working USB hub. So I'd go with DL Blaster, even though sadly, I'll never buy him unless it's an impulse buy at a Con.

    I agree, can't decide if its worth shelling out all of that extra cash for the aesthetic improvement in my collection.

    device label hands down, the universe one just seems more like it should have been in cybertron than in a classics collection

    I'd say neither. The Universe one I don't even count as Blaster, and device label is just too expensive. Throw out under $20 for the WST version! :)  Just be ready to break the carrying handle.

    Upgrade kit looks cool, but #1 there are not even preorders being accepted, #2 no idea what the price is going to be

    Device Label if you want a more aesthetically classic-looking Blaster.

    U2.0 if price is more of a concern.

    Device Label all the way. That Universe figure looks like crap to me, doesn't even look like Blaster in anyway, just looks like an orange version of that Soundwave mold, which I think looks like a terrible Soundwave. DL Blaster, and ML Soundwave are the only way to go for Classic vers. of those two characters.

    i'm torn, i use cybertron soundwave as my classics soundwave, so i could get the universe blaster and add on kit, and i plan on that, but i love the way music label soundwave and device label blaster look, but i don't got the cash to spend to get both....but they look so nice

    Or you can buy a Universe one for $15 on my sales thread and get a Target Leo Prime for free. :D

    Serously though Venkstas upgrade kit looks amazingly cool, it makes me think twice about selling mine....Hmmmm

    I don't know why Hasbro can't at least do a new head sculpt when they do a repaint and make it into another character.

    I passed on Universe "Blaster" when he was $10, I'd pass on him again today. I'm actually on the fence with the DL, problem his:
    -too pricey
    -there are other TFs of higher priority on my list
    If you intend to actually use him as a USB then by all means go for it.
