    We had seen some pics of him from the show but not any good shots like these. Firs pics of his back?

    He looks pretty mediocre. I had higher hopes, but will probably keep my preorder

    Wow, he is a lot bigger than I thought. Looks really solid. Eh, am I seeing enough space in that chest to put cassettes?

    Yeah, not too flattering from the back, and would probably be better without all the flaps hanging off him.... but nevertheless, looks like one of the better Blasters we've gotten (it's just not a high bar, and there aren't many to pick from). He'll still make a good Classics Blaster. Just don't turn him around.

    And hey he hold tapes, that counts for something, right?

    Looks like me might not come with a weapon, though? If not, I hope those fist holes can fit his G1 weapon. Blaster just isn't Blaster to me without that big rifle with the hole in the center.

    Actually, yeah, you're right... he looks a bit bigger than deluxe-sized, doesn't he? Unless that guy has small hands. Looks almost Voyager-sized, maybe? That would be cool, it would feel right if he were taller than MP3 Soundwave.

    Yeah I though he would be maybe deluxe sized, I'm surprised! A big, boxy Blaster is good for me! I might actually consider him now (didn't bothered after the first pre-oreder cancel, and price increase afterward).

    I think he looks great! So, I'm assuming he'll be able to hold G1 cassettes? Or are we guessing DL may be coming out with some cassettes for him? Or maybe, do the USB drives fit in him?

    Actually, he's been shown to hold the cassette-bots since the earliest photos. The one I use on my own site depicts it in action in the right-hand center panel. Later pics have more clearly shown Steeljaw there.

    I dig the Toshiba, looks like the very laptop I'm posting on.

    Gotta get him, with Straxus imminent.

    As a transforming, working piece of technology, then it's all well and good, and I agree with Fosterlager that it is an awesome headsculpt. Best yet for Blaster IMO. But as with music label Soundwave, this isn't a stand-in for the character in my CHUG line-up any more than Blaster's Universe repaint was.
    The toes are painful to look at and there is horrible kibble all over the place.

    As I say, nice idea, but I'll be passing on him.

    I think this is proof that a bot can have cassettes and still not have a cassette deck mode, i guess the tapes become data storage devices and not actual tapes

    Im just happy someone remembered Blaster. I was sick of Soundwave getting all the love and updated molds.
