    On a relaxing day, it looks like Blaster uses Steeljaw as his coffee table.
    :lol

    ... dammit.

    I was going to get Soundblaster but this... looks good. And comes with Steeljaw.

    And a damn gun. Seriously, what's with not giving Soundwave a gun? I'd understand cutting it for budget reasons and rationalizing it by (well... he has a shoulder gun) but WHY FEATURE IT IN THE PROMO PICS.

    I think I like Blaster more than I like Soundwave.

    Curious how he looks next to the WFC Soundwave mold, that said. Blaster WAS always bigger after all...

    I really like this! His Cybertron car mode is pretty pimped out, but I dig it!

    I'm really looking forward to this. Blaster has always been a favorite character of mine, and this toy, despite being a remold, makes for a pretty awesome Cybertronian Blaster (way better than the Universe repaint of Cybertron Soundwave).

    I think that's a pretty natural reaction!

    Nice that us non-double-dippers are getting fun remold choices (Ultra Magnus, Blaster, Sideswipe if you're all Jazzed out, Wreckers if you already have Energon Bruticus...)

    Oh, very much so. The remolds have all been great on this toyline. Some of the best we've seen, to be honest - I'm still amazed they completely reshelled Jazz.

    Bleh. Just don't think this chunky clunky design looks good.

    A tad disappointed his visor doesn't flip down, as that would've been awesome to 'swap heads' between comic and cartoon, but I love Blaster and will get this.

    I know it's G1-accurate, but those dishwater-grey legs are pretty bland and ugly. Would have been nice to see the thighs broken up from the lower legs, color-wise.

    The upper body looks good, though; going the extra mile to remold the chest as well as just the head was a good call, it seals the figure as unquestionably Blaster (even though Blaster is a character that I've never cared much about, personally). I'll still pick him up, of course.

    gotta love how they never EVER show a side view or the back lol.

    all because of that huge off-putting lever for the chest gimmick
