    When we saw pics of blurrs toy it looked good nice and blue, captured his design from the show he did seem abit skinny and you couldnt quite figure out how tall he was,
    Then we found out, some people grunted and moaned alittle (and probably got over it) but not i
    I received my blurr figure 2 days ago and i like the little blue but he is just way to lankey and he just doesnt fit in with the other deluxe toys, i was considering to sell him but i then decided not to as i have cropped his feet and made him fit in with the other figures
    Is this a problem with anyone els?? or is it just me
    I dont know why but i have to have the figs fit in properly, i need them to look as close to the animated show as possible
    I wasnt happy with his size, do you think hasbro had any problems with this before they decided to mass produce the figure?

    Heh, I'm guessing you don't collect (or weren't around for) G1, G2, BW, or BM figures.

    There's always going to be some disparity between the figures and the show, and small things like that don't bother me. G1 Ironhide not having a head, that bothered me.

    Transformers lines never had a never will have perfect size-matching, unless of course you think Hasbro should make a Legends Blurr.

    A tiny bit disappointed with his height for show-accuracy reasons, but it still makes for a cool toy.

    Fair play to you all, i really do see his height as a major problem, but no hes fixed he looks good,
    I was an avid G1 collector when i was young and it never bothered me once about the diffrences in height of any of these figures (come to think about it i never really thought about their height) But still for some reason i cant stand it when the animated figures dont fit the size scale, its animated that does it to me, and its also the line that got me back into transformers
    I was born - G1 - Teenager - Adult - Animated

    The ony problem I'm having with him is that the blade doesn't want to stay in the shield when closed. The damn thing just won't catch!

    My blurr is super tight all over every joint every hinge all of it is well held together, probably the most sturdist animated figure ive received, even his saw blade thing works ok.

    Well yeah basically, it was either that or sell him, there is no way i could have him in my autobot ranks when hes too tall, i think ive done a good enough job of getting his size down, i like what ive done to him and now he proudly sits on my shelf with his other elite guard buddys

    Man, I remember the days where we would kill for Deluxes that were as tall as Blurr or Lockdown. Remember when the average Deluxe was about as tall as Animated Soundwave? And now people complain because he's too tall, because Hasbro gave us more bang for our buck, you think it's a negative?

    Actually he did, but it didn't look like the show. (which came about during the transition from diaclone to TFs)

    But that's the thing, even guys like Lugnut have others in scale with them. I'm sure there's plenty of guys in scale with Blurr.

    Hey, I'm only thirteen, but I don't complain about show-accuracy. So what if Blurr is a bit too lanky and tall, he has an awesome car mode.
    My only other complaint is I still can't find him.

    Okay this isn't about the toy but does anyone else wonder why Blurr's robot mode is only a little bit taller than Bumblebee, when his alt mode more towards normal sized cars like Jazz's?
