SDCC Transformers Universe Commemorative Edition G1 Series Autobot Blaster (Yeah that's all on the box! Well not SDCC.) So my Blaster arrived today from HTS. Surprisingly the boxes were in fair shape with minimal shelf wear. Packaging: The box comes in an outer sleeve that slides over the box. The sleeve has a red foil reflective pattern, and gold print. It dosent look like any Transformer packaging I can remember, but it screams 80's! Removing the sleeve reveals a very large book style Transformers Universe Commemorative Edition G1 series box. The box art depicts a very happy, almost jolly, gun wielding, Blaster! The inside of the cover sports pictures of the figure. Oddly enough the Figures used in these pictures are either originals or a TFC reissue because they are the original color (yeah I'll get to that in just a minute). The adjacent window reveals Blaster and friends all in there robot modes. Figure: Blaster comes packaged in robot mode with the stickers (poorly) pre-applied. As soon as you see Blaster, if you have an original G1 Blaster, something in your head goes "that's not right"! Yeah, so you remember that off color G1 Prime release from Hasbro last Holiday season? It looks like Hasbro had a bunch of left over plastic from it, and decided to use it to make Blaster. The gray on his legs is the same gray used on the Universe G1 Primes trailer. It has a weird opaqueness to it, along with metallic flakes. Not to mention it feels kinda cheap. The Red while not the same pink as the Universe G1 Prime is still not Blaster red. It's missing that hint of orange that the original Had. The Yellow is more vibrant, but works with the red they used. I wont bother getting into the figure itself. If you haven't seen a G1 Blaster by now, I'm sure there a million reviews out there. That being said it has all the problems of any original Blaster, stiff buttons, tape door, and handle. I got this to be a replacement for my Vintage Blaster I have on display. However now that I have it, and have seen it in person, I may not bother. The off colors and overall cheap feel of the plastic leave me feeling pretty disappointed. This Figure is no where near the quality of the TRU Preceptor, or Insecticons that, with the exception of the stickers, are perfect re-issues. He comes with his gun, Ramhorn, Eject, Steeljaw, their weapons and cassette cases. Due to the disappointment of Blaster I didn't care to really look at the cassettes. I did pop eject out because he was mis-transformed. To my surprise while Steeljaw, and Ramhorn are tampo printed, Eject is not. Which is really a shame because I am a big fan of tampo'd Transformers! My opinion: If you don't have a G1 Blaster or any of the Autobot cassettes get it. It's a decent value if you don't already have it. BUT, if you are looking to replace a vintage Blaster this may not be the choice for you. This is my first review of anything on TFW let me know if you like it or not. Also if there was already a review of this release of Blaster I apologize I didn't find it when I searched for "SDCC Blaster". If I have the time, and can make myself care I'll try to setup the lightbox to take pictures that can really show the color differences I spoke about in the review.
