    Most likely it fires some bright orange foamy pellet.

    I was wondering when this would show up.

    We got to futz with a proto of this at Botcon on the tour. It makes the G1 sound and does a few other things. Its pretty neat but I dont collect anything beyond the mainline so its not for me. I hope it sells if only because the chick who demonstrated it to us also designed it, and seemed very excited about it and proud of it.

    I don't know how well the roleplay items sell, but I do know that my godson loves his Prime Big Rig Blaster, so at least these are great for kids.

    Interesting. I might check it out when it is released in stores. Is it just me, or does the Voyager Ratchet pictured on the front there have a different axe? It looks to be shaped a bit differently.

    BWA??? Why a Ratchet Blaster?

    They should have made an Ironhide Cannon (so you could point it at Chihuahuas).

    Are blasters (or other role-play items) cheaper to produce than conventional Transformers? Because I'm inclined to agree. The blasters we HAVE have never left the shelves. Why do more? Especially one that doesn't seem to convert FROM anything meaningful to a blaster?

    This looks like a Loony Toon Acme product. And not in the good way.

    I saw this blaster too @Hasbro. I like the Prime and Sreamer ones better at least as far as the alt-non-blaster-modes. When not a blaster, this should look like Rachet.
