    Beeecause he's a repaint of an existing toy, and there's no modern TF toys that are radioes (unless you count Frenzy, and there's licensing issues there)?

    Hasbro said that we'll be getting new Voyager-class Universe molds in '09, though.

    Hopefully one of those will be a new-mold Blaster! :) 
    But, I kinda doubt it.

    It doesn't matter how many times I see it, I just don't think I'm ever going to get over how unforgivably lazy and rubbish this Blaster is. Could they not have even resculpted the head, for crying out loud? As it is, there isn't a damn thing about this toy that says "Blaster" other than the red coloration, and frankly, that's just not enough...

    Just pretend it's Cybertronian mode Blaster. :D 

    Stealth fighter. Same as Cybertron Soundwave, who he is a repaint of.

    I guess I'm gonna pass. I've always want a Cybertron Soundwave mold but this red looks too weird

    So, the yellow and gray portions of the deco, opening chest compartment, and transforming "partner" bot that can store in said compartment count for squat, eh?

    Am I the only one digging Blaster? I plan to buy him ASAP.

    Heavy Load, however... bleh.

    I appreciate most things hasbro release but these are 2 of the gheyest, ugliest repaints they have ever set free, whoever thought they were a good idea should be sacked! Blaster is one of the most popular figs and characters in the TF universe yet they refuse to furnish us with a toy doubtless because tape decks are outdated and todays brats wouldnt know what they are, rant over :)

    I'd not say Blaster is one of the most popular figures... loads more popular than him! But yeah I agree he deserves a proper new mould. MP3 player or stereo system or anything. Not a bloody spaceship though!

    I might get Heavy Load; I missed out on the mould the first time round. Blaster, however? Huge pass. He looks awful IMO.

    Not impressed with it but I do own the Soundwave version. It's not worth it to buy another. Not one of my favs overall.

    I'm with you dude! Plus, he's got a NEW minion. I think that's awesome.

    I do wish he had a different head. But oh well! Maybe we'll get a ML Blaster one day

    I'm definitely tempted by Blaster, even if he is a redeco of Soundwave (who I love). I'm tempted to sculpt him a new head, repaint Blockrock as Laserbeak (and Laserbeak as Buzzsaw) and try to design new podbots, like Freestyle's Steeljaw...
