    So I didn't see a non-video review thread for Blaster yet. He's pretty awesome, IMO. Got a good, detailed sculpt, with a great looking head. Great range of motion, and some nice functionality in robot mode so that he has something to load in his chest, even if you don't have any "cassette"-bots yet.

    He's actually got more steps to transform into boombox mode than you'd think, and even then, it's probably his weakest mode, with a couple of visible gaps.

    His base mode is actually quite nice, and better than Powermaster Prime's by a long shot.

    Just wanted to post this because people don't seem to notice, Twincast can fit in the bottom of the black blaster/cassette accessory for storage in alt mode.

    I did notice the notch for that, but hadn't tried it. Good to know!

    This looks to be the perfect Blaster.

    I didn't really like him when I first saw him, but now that I've got Rewind and Stripes I feel that I need him, lol. Gonna be on the lookout for him now

    I really want to hold off on getting Blaster because I'd much rather have Soundwave, but he's really tempting me. If Soundwave's supposed to come by the end of the year, then I'll just skip Blaster.

    Soundwave is in the next leader wave after this one.

    Yeah, they even nailed the paint-apps to look like the stickers. That's a home run right there.

    The only thing that bugs me about Blaster is that, if you want to keep one of the other "tapes" in his chest,m then you have no place to put the Titan Master in boombox mode.

    There's a better question:
    Can TR Blaster hold MP Cassettes?

    Yeah Blaster looks like he'll make a pretty great MP stand-in if Transistor's either not your style or outside your price range.

    You can actually fit a couple of them in there but they don't fit particularly well or go the right direction.
