    I have to agree. What we were given as Universe Blaster was a half-assed, why bother, attempt. That's why I didn't buy it. My G1 Blaster is good enough.

    While I agree he needs an upgrade kit, I can't stand the cartoon head. The comics Blaster was SO much better character wise, and he had a cooler looking head. But yeah, said kit should have his electro-scrambler, too.

    Why bother with Device Label Blaster coming out at the end of the year?

    Or you could just take matters into your own hands. :)  Even made an easy-to-follow tutorial on doing so, in the Radicons' tutorial section.

    "Upgrading" the Cybertron Soundwave mold is the definition of "Polishing a turd".

    I think people are staring to get spoiled with all the upgrade kits.

    Universe Blaster was more Universe and less Blaster anyways. The best upgrade they could do with that figure is not give it to us again and give us a boombox toy with cassettes. I don't care what anyone says, kids know what cassettes are. They may not use them much, if at all, but they know what they are. Every parent has a shoebox full of them somewhere.

    A boombox toy with cassettes and full articulation. Your last sentence just reminded me of my own cassette collection, some which I still play in the car :crazy: .

    *sigh* I feel like such a minority for actually liking Universe Blaster. Anyway, my personal attitude to this is just get Devicelabel Blaster or perhaps using Devicelabel Blaster's head to kitbash onto Universe Blaster's to make that custom. Myself personally, I'm not sold on Devicelabel Blaaster so I won't be picking him up.... unless they would come out with a Steeljaw USB stick rather than Tigatron (why Takara? Why?).

    i actually like the mold too but it definatelly works better as soundwave its a nice update to the character but the blaster repaint is kinda half-assed but i was happy when i got it cuz i missed out on soundwave

    I'm kinda excited, but I'd rather spend my money on Music Label Soundwave.

    Once you spend that money on Music Label Soundwave and realize how awesome it is, you'll start looking more longingly at the Device Label Blaster.

    And Universe Blaster looks like a movie toy and some condiment packages got into a fight... but nobody wins. I don't get why people get happy when repaints are released because they "missed out" the first time around. For like $5 more, they could have THE VERY TOY they missed out on arriving to their door with some careful eBay or Junkion watching.

    E.C.R. is dead-on with the Steeljaw comment. WTF Takara? Way to cross-promote or miss an opportunity for a packaged deal.

    If your opinion is: "get device label Blaster"
    Then I agree with you.
    Don't think you can salvage enough out of the universe one to make it worth it.
