I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

Since it was you who created the character - I always wondered, was the 7-shaped antenna on his helmet inspired by the lighting-bolt "antenna" the Flash wears on his costume's ears?

I love him and think he's great. He's pretty perfect and one of my favorite Generations molds.

And as far as small retool, sure his head and spoiler don't amount to much, but the two pistols and giant sniper rifle are among the most extensive retools we've received. I mean how often do we get new weapons for a retool? Hardly ever! icon-hotrod.gif

And I have to say...he really doesn't do it for me as a stand-in. Blurr was a sleek cybertronian sportscar. This Blurr is burly. He's clunky. Other than the head and the color, what really identifies him in a significant way to the G1 figure? Nothing that I can much see.


Nobody looks like Drift does. Yet Drift still had to be repainted. Head and color is the only thing that would identify whoever was the repaint if it wasn't Blurr.

Still, when a character reformats their Cybertronian mode into an Earth mode, you expect there to be changes.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

No sir, I don't like it. Had we never seen nimated Blurr, I think I may have been ok with him (though the head still kills me) but after that beautiful, sleek sculpt Blift looks too chunky and chinny.

But as of now...does this Blurr do it for you as an adequate homage fitting in with the rest of the CHUG(or whatever you may call the amalgamation of G1 homages) figures on your shelf?

No. I don't like the mold anyway, and was massively shocked at how bad it was when I got it as it got so much praise, but for Blurr it is even worse.
I'm also not a fan of the head. It doesn't remind me of G1 Blurr and I'm not a fan of IDW so it's just got no appeal to me.

Instead I prefer Animated Blurr. He reminds me of G1 Blurr and whilst I don't think his proportions clash with Classics personally, any issues people have can be easily passed off as his tech spec heritage.
Plus it looks great next to MP Rodimus.

When Floro Dery visits message boards, it tends to be under fake names, while decrying people for dimishing Floro's many magnificent contributions to the Transformers mythos and daring to suggest someone came up with the concept of a transforming planet before he did.

I was never a big fan of the character (if fact I hated him and he annoyed the living jive out of me) in G1. But he grew on me in Animated, and the TFA toy of him sort of depicts him as he should be. Unfortunately, that toy sucked.

Now this Blurr harkens back to the original by being designed after the IDW version and referencing Animated Blurr in the bio.... me very likey; it takes the best of each Blurr and puts it in one toy. And me very likey even more after reading some of this thread. icon-hotrod.gif

Like many others, I like the toy, but don't like the new head. It just doesn't have that Blurr look to it. I did pick it up though, in the hopes that there will be a third party head created for it to make it look more like the G1 head.

Hiding the hip armor around the back looks pretty cool! Can you still put the rifle on the back when it's like that, and if you point his shoulder armor up does it get in the way? If it isn't a bother could someone put a picture of the hip armor around the back and his shoulder armor pointed up. I'd check, but I'm studying abroad right now and don't have my collection at the moment. (I did, however, find my holy grail TM2 Blackarachnia, whom I have never seen during my childhood icon-silverbolt.gif)


Putting the hip armor around the back doesn't hinder the rifle being placed there at all. There's a perfectly sized space for it still there. Using that configuration hinders lateral shoulder movement, although you'll get some of that back if you point the shoulder armor up. Here's some more pics:









And with the shoulder armor pointing up like some people like to use:
