    Got my United Blurr from BBTS a few days ago. I'm happy to report the paint apps are darn near perfect. It's always a bit of a nail-biter having to order these guys without being able to compare paint apps like you can with the Hasbro releases at retail, so I'm very pleased to have received a good one.

    The metallic blue really is gorgeous in person and I think it came out pretty decently in the pics. I love it.

    I almost didn't bother with this guy because I thought the Gen version was fine, but now that I have the United, the black on the Gen really bugs me and the United head is way better, IMO. I don't know what I'm going to do with my Gen fig now.

    Gah, so conflicted. The robot mode looks so boring compared to the Gen version.

    But DAT CAR.

    Yea, the car mode looks sick, but that robot mode looks pretty damn plain (as far as contrast goes). I will probably pick it up eventually, but there are a few other United figures to knock out first.

    I'd take the United car parts glommed onto the Generations robot bits.

    Slightly OT. (related to the mold, not this version) how did you get the hood to look that smooth? On my Drift, the two panels that go over the head dont sit flush with the rest of the hood.

    Is this something they just fixed in later versions? or am i doing something wrong?

    I'm probably going to end up grabbing a handful of United figures at BotCon, if prices aren't too nutty. Blurr will definitely be on the short list to consider.

    If you look closely, you'll see that he doesn't have the hood seated right, and that it's resting between the two tabs.

    Nothing's changed.

    This guy showed up on my door step on Tuesday. I have not opened him but man that car mode really is more impressive in person. It's a thing of beauty. The paint they are using on the United toys is really sharp!

    The pictures doesn't do this guy justice in showing the gorgeous colors on this paint variant. Love the light purples (which often look blue and washed out on pics) adds a lot on Blurr, without being too stand out or dark like in the US release. The silver paint and minimal black parts made him look slimmer and less clunky. Turning out liking this United Blurr a lot better when I have it in person. Great QC too, with not much issue on paint or joint tightness. Awesome figure!

    Awesome pictures! I wish I had preordered him. Which brings me to a question. Why is his secondary market price so high after soon after release? It's double on ebay. :(

    Wow, I got my United Blurr today. All the pictures I have seen don't do him justice. He looks even more beautiful in hand! Such a beautiful paintjob. The metallic blue is amazing! I should have gotten him earlier! Only his long rifle hanging on his back looks funny when you see the long dong hanging between his legs ;) 

    I couldn't unsee it, but I don't know where else to store his rifle.

    This is such an amazing Transformer! Really love it, the headsculpt is great and I can really see him being the fastest Autobot alive. He rocks!

    Ah and before I forget: The joints are of course tight and sturdy as usual on Takara products. It's seldom I have a Hasbro Transformer this good.
