    Purple Autobot symbol, messed up eye, fits the description we've been given by a reliable source...how could it NOT be?

    Interesting; they gave him the already-remolded Cybertron version, and they STILL gave him a new head. Pretty neat paint aps too. I wouldnt buy it though, I already have the Armada one and the mold isnt posable enough for me.

    I love the head, but that is about all I like of his robot mode. However, the vehicle mode looks fantastic with the light blue paint apps.

    The orange Speedia key proves this is the real deal, there is no orange release of that piece for them to fake this with.

    That said... holy crap! I know it's one of those ultimate backpack molds but DAMN, that lightning deco looks awesome...

    OMG THAT IS AWESOME. I love freaking EVERYTHING about that deco job. And that modified head sculpt is cool as hell... if hell was cool, that is. And he's got ALLSPARK POWAH!

    I have a new favorite exclusive this year-- sorry, Evilmus Prime.

    I LOVE YOU FP.

    Blurr looks good. I wonder if they'll explain how he lost his eye in the comic.

    He lost it because HE WAS SO FULL OF AWESOMENESS IT HAD TO COME OUT SOMEWHERE.

    At least that's how I hope they'll explain it.

    Maybe Starscream stabs him? :lol 

    You know... the head generally looks the same as the Cybertron release. I think the only thing that was done was a retooling of the facial area to remove the one eye and to open his mouth. We know that they can change the molds at least that much.

    That's definitely a different head mold than the Cybertron version. It's more squared-off, the face looks more narrow, and it's missing the brim on his forehead. Makes me wonder if it's intended to be Blurr at all, or a different character. The Cybertron head mold already looked like Blurr... why bother remolding it? Weird.

    Hmph. If they were going to bother remolding anything on this figure, why not give him some KNEES? :p

    Looks like a kitbash to me. That autobot symbol and the area around it look too messy to be part of the botcon set. Also, not too sure about that missing eye.

    Not feelin' it. I like the box set, but don't see myself going after Ricochet and Blurr here. Jury's still out on Rodimus/Megs.
