    Observations.

    Nice light piping on head
    Balljoint shoulders.
    Bicep swivel
    No wrist articulation
    Balljoint hips
    No thigh swivel
    90 degree knees
    No ankle articulation. Feet move front and back.
    Bubble canopy could be more tinted. Can clearly see robot crotch and thighs from outside.
    Clear gun loose in hand.
    Very simple transformation. Just lay Blurr on his back and cover his front with the bubble canopy.
    Vehicle mode looks like a go cart.
    Blurr is small. TR Kup is bigger than him. 20170117_143349.jpg 20170117_143355.jpg 20170117_143406.jpg 20170117_143640.jpg 20170117_143704.jpg 20170117_143722.jpg 20170117_143801.jpg

    Looks pretty decent, though I wish they went with the more purpley Rescue Bots colors.

    Looks great. And a different enough aesthetic and design from TR Blurr so as not to look like different universe versions of the same character (like, say, Soundwave or Starscream). And I'm always happy to see an RiD warrior, especially an Autobot, with a gun instead of a melee weapon.

    Wow, looks very nice. So great to see solid forearms and no balljoint elbows. Thanks for the pics.

    No thigh swivel?

    I could've sworn I saw some in a video review.

    *goes to look*

    edit: Well then, no thigh swivel. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.

    You may have just lost a sale Hasbro, that's just being effing cheaper than ever.

    Love the looks of the vehicle mode. Bot mode looks okay and I'm glad he doesn't have your traditional G1 Blurr traits. I'll likely pick this mold up, but I'd prefer another deco.

    I don't know why but I love the alt mode so much. Bot looks cool too. Definite pick-up!

    Pretty sure he's got thigh swivel... I can see where the the two parts join (see the underside vehicle pic) in the inside middle of the thigh. I'd also be willing to bet it's limited in it's amount of rotation due to the sculpting on the waist and upper thighs.

    If I'm wrong it's an automatic no buy.

    Lower on the leg right?

    That's what I thought originally as well.

    Yeah, there's a mold support and right above that you can see the cut out for the mushroom peg.

    am I the only one who sees a passable Hot Rod Repaint opportunity here?

    looks pretty good - if I ever see it in the flesh, I may pick it up
