If you're not happy with the IDW style head that came on Generations Blurr you may be in luck. A new third-party company known as SideFX is developing an upgrade set to give him a more Generation one appearance. The Blitz set will include a new head, gun, sword, and shield. According to their twitter account they have more upgrade sets planned.

The Classics Blurr doesn't really need an upgrade in my opinion so pass.

Dinky Shield looks Dinky.

It also make him look like Ani Blurr.

New Head isn't that bad, and the weapons are nice. Not really Blurr, but since I planned to give Perceptor his sniper rifle, IF I ever find Perceptor, new weapns for Blur wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

The sword and shield are definitely dinky and the original rifle is cooler.

I would only buy this for the head and it's not particularly impressive.

It doesn't help that they used crappy low res photos for the reveal. Unless it's under $10 (which it won't be), this is a pass for me.

Just curious, but do you guys now like about this? The head looks G1, the gun and sword are pretty much generic, and the shield looks nice to me. Plus you're still going to have his original guns. If there are things about the set you don't like you should let them know on twitter.

At the minute YAK! that head ruins the mould for me it looks too buch blurs always been lean i do love the shield and gun though.

EDIT. Cool kit though if the head was thiner imo it would be spot on.

im sorry but the head hardly looks G1ish and it does not look right on the mold. the weapons are cool thats about it.

Looking at this i was first like :SICK:. Then I started liking how the shield and weapons store in alt mode. The head sculpt is still growing on me but not quite there yet.

Can't say that I like it. The head just...doesn't work for me. It doesn't scream G1 Blurr. I feel like the head is kinda...fat and squat, which is completely opposite of what Blurr was. The IDW head gives a sense of motion and speed.

Also, yet another third party company. Hooray. :roll:

I don't know why you guys are griping. Id'e buy this just for the rifle, it combines with the sword. Not only that, but the shield looks good. Id'e keep the old head on there, but a set like this would really differintiate him from Drift. I'm just sayin.

Hmm, I kinda like the shield, but not really interested in the rest of it.

The head is a great plus and I'm always one for weapons but that shield is s*it. But I won't pay more than $30 not including shipping. That is the same price for the Cliffjumper head upgrade kit...so 'nuff said! :VEHI:

His head could've been done better, otherwise, I'm for it. :D

I do like the original weapons: chunky gun and small shield for the win! I think the head would look a lot better if Blurr's helmet crest/pony tail thing was bigger and more defined. I can only assume transformation impediments have reduced it to a tiny mohawk.

I am intrigued as to what their other products are. I'm with Down_Shift in hoping for a new head for Warpath.
