Thanks to several fellow Seibertronians for pointing us towards this bit of news! Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has updated their preorder listing for Prime Wars Blast Off with new images, which give us our first look at the final deco of the figure, which is a recolor and redeco of Unite Warriors Blast Off.

It's more faithful to the G1 toy colors, and also sports some significant changes from the UW version- the arms and physical orientation of the figure have been switched to give the figure an even closer match to his original toy, and there are tampographed details on his chest that mimic the stickers found on his 1986 toy release. The change from the shuttle-gut to a more G1 toy accurate look aren't entirely new, though; this chest orientation had been used for the UW Baldigus use of the mold, Movor.

As we can also see from the photos, Blast Off will come in a box with a front panel featuring him in space shuttle mode, that will open to showcase the figure in package.

We also get our very first look at the included Prime Master, Megatronus, who sports a very nice looking deco of translucent red plastic and two different shades of grey.

It's interesting to note that while he's being released during the Power of the Primes line, with POTP style artwork, the text inside the box flap refers to Combiner Wars, and that line's logo appears on the packaging, along with a Prime Wars Trilogy logo.

That looks really good, shame they couldn't have gave him prime armour so he could use megatronus

This may be an odd place/method of saying this but, nice article Bounti! It reads really well IMO :D

Man, I was really hoping this Blast Off wouldn't be in the Hasbro CW toy colors... because now that I know he is, it means I definitely have to get him. That purple is just so delicious, I can't pass it up! Fingers crossed I find some not-impossible method of obtaining him down here.

(Although... did they just do what they did for CW Lightsteed as well, and glop a huge swathe of paint over the clearly-sculpted windows to try and pretend like it's one big canopy? Ick.)

Call me nitpicky, but I just can't get over the obvious in-your-face arms for the shuttle mode. #-o

...Actually, you know what you just made me realize? In that stock image his arms are the "Unite Warriors" way around, with the forearms and fists facing upward, instead of the Strafe/Movor/This-Very-Toy orientation which should have the backs of the forearms facing up instead.

Not only interesting, but it also means his arms won't be as bad and obvious on the toy as they are in that image. So if the arms on Movor above look less disagreeable to you (I know they do to me), then your complaints can be at least slightly remedied :D

Well, I don't think it will ever be. There's no places for those arms to go not to make them conspicious. A shuttle should have a perfect round shape or it's not a shuttle. I could have forgiven it if the wings were hiding the arms like for the other jets and it's forgivable for a spaceship like Computron's Strafe. But it just look out of place on a shuttle. I can understand some undercarriage for transformers jets and planes, but when the obvious bots bits are anywhere else than the bottom, it just make me facepalm... or make me rage. Like that FAUX-KING RotF Starscream.

That jet was the cleanest ever, but they just had to REMOVE the hinges for the wrists to give us a big fat FA-Q.

Really love that space shuttle deco. Much better than takara in my opinion.

yeah Hasbro wins this one over Takara but i won't it as i already have my shuttle boobs Blast-Off.

I propose Jet Blast-Off be made a canon Combaticon Off-Blast ;)

That was a beautiful jet. I still miss that mold just for the front and front 3/4 view of him! Wonderful stuff.

Also, I'm excited for Blast Off! I should probably buy 4 so I can finally have some semblance of Bruticus as I missed the other bots for Bruticus and 4 of these would be cheaper than buying one of these and three of the others most likely :lol:

We have some more 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 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.
