We have some more Transformers Blast Off goodness coming to us from site sponsor Robot Kingdom. They posted on their Facebook page some new in hand images of Blast Off out of his box.

While, he comes packaged with his chest in a certain orientation, as can be seen here, the images show that it is more than possible to give the toy the same look that the Unite Warriors version had, with the shuttle front being on his chest.

Is this a look you will give your toy? Or will you stick to the Movar configuraton? And what will you do with your previous Hasbro Blast Off? Let us know!

Darn. I wanted to use the Takara version transformation but he kinda looks plain with the all brown chest.

Ick that cockpit. Ick, ick, ick.

Otherwise, he looks awesome! I'll be sticking to the Movor-style chest personally, but he looks decent enough either way around. I haven't been this hyped for an exclusive since TR Brainstorm - hopefully I'll have an easier time getting Blast Off than I did trying to get him!

Also, bizarre decision in its using the Shuttler transformation instead.


They are tampographs, not stickers, though they are meant to mimic some G1 toy sticker detailing. No Deluxe sized figures or smaller have yet had stickers in the Generations line, outside of smaller partner figures included with some Titan Class releases. Stickers have mostly come on only Voyager, Leader, and Titan figures for now.
If that's the case, their being tampos is even worse. :SICK:

I have my Takara Blast Off transformed this way. I didn't like having that big belly on him.

Found Inferno Yesterday. Just want to make sure though...the back of the box shows similar Prime Armor/Feet as Hun-Gurrr, only black, but what he actually came with was the same prime armor/feet as Starscream and Elita-1, does that match up with anyone else who has Inferno?

Now just to find those wave 2 Deluxe Dinobots and I'll be caught up with everything that's been spotted in the U.S. so far.

Yeah, that was a switch made seemingly late in production. Oddly, while the Prime Armor is made from the Seeker type, the Enigma is still redecoed from Hun-Gurrr's.

The cockpit glass needs work. Looks unfinished.

They colored it toy-accurately.

They overdid it. I guess coloring the individual sections and leaving the struts(?) as is would have been too complicated compared to a single smear. :lol:

Requesting comparisons with Jetblast in advance.

Still hate the junky-looking obvious arms in shuttle mode but eh at least it's still the shuttle and not the extra-lazy aerialbot repaint from combiner wars. Slight nostalgia for my old G1 Combaticons wasn't enough for me to buy any of them though.

At least the jet scaled better than a shuttle ;-) :lol:

Excuse me if this has been answered before but can blast off do a rook and do hulk hands?

Well yeah, scale was one of the things I hated most in G1 and the Combaticons were one of the biggest offenders since they didn't even look right with their own team-mates in alt-mode. Stunticons did (but then combiners have their own issues in combined form too like a lorry with car limbs wouldn't actually be as tall as a concorde with jet limbs).

Transformers as a concept is a headache in itself. :P

He can indeed.

The glass painting is kinda shoddy but otherwise I actually like this better than the Takara deco. I never minded the ochre-brown of Takara Blastoff but this is definitely nicer looking. Even the tampos are kinda cool in that old-timey toy way. Having them be optional stickers on a separate sheet for the consumer to apply if they wanted them might have been better, but they look cool.

Now I almost want to get him and the rest of CW Bruticus. Or at least, I would if I hadn't already decided I like the look of the UW Baldigus/Ruination set better. Still, this is cool.

I think I'll try getting this Blast Off, I like it more than the Combiner Wars jet, and the Megatronus Prime Master looks great, though part of me wishes it was Nexus Prime instead. I'm also slightly disappointed that the HFG isn't a newer one that fits a Prime Master, I was hoping to give Bruticus a pimp hand infused with the power of The Fallen, but I suppose I can borrow a hand from one of my other POTP Deluxes.

I’m down to get one as I’ve yet to experience actual Blast Off or Strafe. I just hope it won’t be a major pain in the ass to get one.

Also, translucent hinge joints on something as small as a Titan/Prime Master is a little worrying...

Which reminds me, any reports of broken ghosts or spikes?

Glad they went with Strafe's design instead of that UW version of Blastoff with the barrel chest.

So the only question now is, is only Robot Kingdom selling this figure?

I don't like ordering from them.

Blast off is a good figure but felt very different from the other CW/UW figures. Could never figure out why. This version looks REALLY good. If it has the head fix then this might be better than Takara's version. Now, where did I put my UW set...

Blastoff and Strafe are the same design, just with the arms switched. Anyone can choose and use whichever chest they want for Blastoff (both Takara and Hasbro) and Shuttler/Movor. All you have to do is swap the arms then rotate the head and waist 180 degrees.

Amazon has a placeholder listing for Blast Off so I'd keep your eye on them.

UW Blasty was a pain in the ass. But this looks pretty awesome.... guess I need it :lol:
