    Add Blaster to your ultimate squad April 12th at 10AM PDT!
    ABOUT BLASTER:
    Faction: Autobot

    Class: Tech

    Only one Autobot brings the noise and drops crazy beats – Blaster! Some of his tunes may hurt your audio receptors, but you can count on him to save the day with his superior sound system.

    STATS AND ABILITIES:
    2-Star:

    • Health: 1679
    • Attack: 156
    • Max Rating: 551
    3-Star:

    • Health: 4124
    • Attack: 328
    • Max Rating: 1314
    4-Star:

    • Health: 10718
    • Attack: 851
    • Max Rating: 3539
    BASIC ABILITIES: AMPLIFY, INTERFERENCE, SHIELDING
    Amplify

    • Each time Blaster uses a Special Attack he gains an Amp Charge up to a maximum of 10 charges.
    • Sonic Attacks used in Blaster’s Basic Ranged and Special Attacks deal 5~6% more damage for each Amp Charge on Blaster.
    Basic Ranged Attacks

    • 70~80% chance to inflict Interference, lowering Ranged Damage by 10~20% and decreasing Projectile Speed for 10 seconds.
    Heavy Attack

    • 100% chance to inflict Shock, dealing 30% of Attack over 5 seconds.
    • Shocks are 20% stronger for each Amp Charge on Blaster.
    Block

    • Activates a Shield, reducing incoming Damage by 6~15% while holding Block and for 0.2 seconds once released.
    • Blaster’s Shield lasts 50% longer for each Amp Charge on him.
    SIGNATURE ABILITY – ABSORPTION SHIELD
    Blaster’s Shielding system can be upgraded to absorb incoming energy attacks and repair damage. A similar upgrade was requested by his fellow Autobots for their audio receptors as an answer to his taste in music.

    While Shielded

    • For each Energy Attack that hits Blaster while his Shield is up, he instantly Repairs 7~17% of Max Health. Additionally Blaster’s Shield allows him to shrug off the impact of Basic Energy Ranged Attacks and reduces a further 20% of incoming Energy Damage.
    SPECIAL ATTACKS:
    Special 1 – Amped

    Turn up the volume, start the beats.

    • Blaster gains up to 2 additional Amp Charge(s).
    • 60% chance to grant a Power Gain Buff, generating 30% of Max Power over 10 seconds.
    Special 2 – Steeljaw

    Blasters speakers won’t be the only thing roaring.

    • 100% chance to inflict Interference, lowering Ranged Damage by 15~30% and decreasing projectile speed for 20 seconds.
    • 7% Chance for each Amp Charge on Blaster to Stun the opponent for 3 seconds.
    Special 3 – Boom Boxers

    The hits just keep on coming.

    • 100% chance to inflict an Attack Debuff reducing the Opponent’s Attack Rating by 10% for 20 seconds. Blaster then inflicts an additional Attack Debuff for each Amp Charge on him.
    SYNERGY BONUSES:
    Mutual – Allies – Ultra Magnus, Arcee

    • +2~8% Armor.
    Mutual – Enemies – Soundwave

    • +2~8% Attack.
    Outgoing – Shield Amp – Soundwave, Mirage, Rhinox

    • 1.5~10% Damage Reduction while Shielded.
    Outgoing – Brain Drain – Shockwave

    • Shockwave generates 1~3 Energy Charges at the start of the fight and every 25 seconds.
    Incoming – Brain Gain – Shockwave

    • 25% Increase to Attack against Demolition Bots. Shockwave only gets this benefit if all bots on his team have this synergy.
    STRONG MATCH-UPS:
    • Galvatron – Galvatron greatly relies on his Ranged Damage, something Blaster is an expert at reducing.
    • Soundwave – Blaster is able to Repair himself with his own Reflected Projectiles. Let the Rivalry Begin.
    WEAK MATCH-UPS:
    • Bumblebee GS – The little gold speedster will break through Blaster’s Shielding, inflicting Shock damage on him everytime he blocks.
    • Bludgeon – This tanky warrior does not use energy projectiles and will not allow Blaster to Repair when struck by his projectiles.
    RECOMMENDED MODULES FOR BLASTER:
    Laser Guidance Module

    • This module will greatly increase Blaster’s Ranged Damage and Speed, a perfect fit for a bot that can do the inverse to his opponent.
    Repair Module

    • The Repair Module will add to the constant Repairs he gets with his Signature Ability unlocked.

    Interesting they chose to use the TR Blaster model, but transform him in a way the toy can't, completely ignoring the large speakers on his legs.

    Yeah, they rely pretty heavily on the TR and CW stuff for their ‘G1’ characters, save for a few exceptions.

    If I have learned anything from Hasbro's product shots in the past years
    it's that they always find a way.
    always.

    That transformation on the alt mode is quite humorous.

    It's not G1. G1 Blaster isn't a headmaster. Titan's Return ISN'T G1. It shares similar designs to G1, yes, but it is NOT the G1 designs.
