    At first glance, I want it. After some careful consideration, though, I'm going to skip it for the same reason I skipped it 20-some-odd years ago: It's too damned big. He's nearly twice the size of Soundwave. I'm considering getting Device Label Blaster instead, since he looks like he's closer to the scale I want. Still not sure, though, as I have yet to see any good comparison pics.

    I'm glad I got to check these pics out before buying one.
    As much as I need and want a reissue of Blaster, I'm unhappy to see that the SDCC version of Eject keeps the gray (or dull silver) stripes on his decals. I was hoping that this version would have red stripes (like the late 1986-88 painted version). While being the same as the hard-to-get Encore Eject is a great thing, it turns bad for me as I've already eBayed for Encore Eject and Rewind!

    Even with the bonus of picking up a new Ramhorn (my default is the rubsign version with shiny legs) and Steeljaw (my 1st w/ gold wing-guns), I'll have to carefully weigh my options between
    • Getting this set.
    • Finding and picking up a #21 TFC Reissue
    • Getting either re-issue and getting a Twincast (for the specific purpose of integrating the Twincast chestplate with a Blaster body, and hopefully a clear window).
    The fact that the 3 cassettes come with different colored weapons makes me wonder: Who (of the original 4 Auto cassettes) looks best with which color weapons? For me, I like my Eject with gold guns, but wonder if he looks better with silver ones, as opposed to Rewind. I also couldn't decide if Ramhorn looks better with silver ones or gold.

    Couple questions...

    Is the gray plastic on Blaster supposed to look like that? Or should it be more silver/metallic? Maybe it's the lighting?

    When would be the best time to start looking for this on HTS? Do they link to their exclusives from the HTS frontpage?

    Does SDCC blaster hold one tape like the original
    or 2 tapes like Twincast?

    the lack of rewind is truly puzzling. it's like they purposely did it but why not just include him? anyway, he better not be impossible to get like soundwave was.

    What do you mean? Soundwave was about as readily available on HTS as it gets.

    Unless I'm confusing it with Uni Nemesis Prime. But I don't think I am.

    Soundwave was available on HTS - it was in stock from time to time. I didn't order until maybe months later since I have TRU Soundwave.
    Now I gotta order Blaster to keep the tradition going.

    I can't remember the Soundwave situation really, but Uni Nemesis Prime was definitely on there a long time

    Look at it like this: Someone screwed up and put Rewind's head (red painted face) with Encore Eject's body.
    Eject's face was painted orange, not red.

    If you want to get all technical, just try to search for Encore Rewind, and your SDCC Blaster set will be ship-shape.
