Another night, another new review by YouTube video "geek" EmGo. The other day, he gave us a closer look at HFTD Axor and this time around, it's deluxe Generations Blurr that goes before the camera. While the transformation is nothing new to us because of the many reviews and images of the Generations Drift figure that this repaint/retool is based on, what we do see more of is the polarizing design style of this Generations update, based more around the IDW comic character than the G1 figure many people consider to the the benchmark. Check out the review below and let the debate continue!

SDont forget that IDW Blurr's cybertronian robot mode was more bulkier than your average Blurr. This would be a possible earth mode.

I'm loving this guy. The shoulder bulk is my only negative. But, the head sculpt and articulation of this figure make me easily look over that. The super sniple rifle is a cool feature but I will not be using it. If the Perceptor figures sniper rifle sucks, he will most likely be getting Blurr's. :APPLAUSE:

Do we know if the planned Perceptor figure is even getting his own rifle? Seems to me that the designers planned ahead and gave Blurr here Percy's weapons. It's a neat idea, especially if they end up giving Perceptor a gun that you can swap out with Blurr. Either way I'll be picking this guy up.

The members that attended Hasbro's panel at Botcon are under the impression he is. And seeing that the figure is based of the IDW verse, i'd say that it's quite plausable.

yeah currently he is actually near the bottom of my list of the next wave though but if one of my ones near the top arent on at the store adn hes there i will be picking him up. :D Also it seems K-marts are the first to get the next wave. Was there today and supposedly they are getting Red Alert, Terradive and others this weekend.

Also just a heads up friday and saturday is the last 2 days to get all generations and deluxe TF at $9.49 at any target :P lol XD also i saw alot of TRU express stores have all Transformers in stock 33% off. I found a Alliance Barricade along with a Alliance Bumblebee for $24 over by me (Long Island, NY) along with all the new generations and movie figures for $8. :BOT:

LOL. Too bulky? Not Blurr? ****. I've waited so long for this figure - Armada Blurr, G1 Blurr, Animated Blurr, IDW Blurr, all in one damn figure. Beggers can't be choosers, take the figure while you can because I personally doubt there won't be any more Blurr figures for awhile. But for this - this masterpiece for the character that is totally awesome - Thank you Hasbro, thank you.

Blurr! Not only the name of the character, but the name of the camera used for this preview. Seriously...Focus....FOCUS! MY EYES HURT.
:-B

Love this figure. Buy on sight. Whiners, move to the back.

OMFG this figure is teh sex. When I saw the super sniper rifle I literally went "NO ****ING WAY!!!" :D It even has its own bipod! Primus, that's awesome! I wondered why the small guns were so skinny, now we know!

I don't even care anymore if he's not quite G1 or a little blocky. Just too damn awesome. Time to bust out the Animated version in anticipation.

Yeah it's just not good enough for me. He looks nothing more than a repainted Drift with a new color and head scuplt. Now at first I couldn't care less for Animated Blurr but I couldn't break from thinking how awesome is alt mode is. The more I fought it the more I felt the need to get him. And as sleek as Animated Blurr is in alt mode I think Hasbro should have taken that heavy into consideration. Though I do dig Drift, his body is really bulky in both modes. Just another case of hit and miss I guess...'nuff said :CON:

That's ironic, because Blurr had the design before Drift did in the IDW comics. Drift is literally White Blurr in the comics.

Hasbro can't just paint any old car they like and call it Blurr.

This looks like Blurr after having the Transformers equivalent of Elvis Presley's diet in his final years.

I hope Takara Tomy ignore the IDW comics and make a better figure than this. I'm sure they could retool it a bit, especially the crap head, although the paint job is already perfect.

This Blurr... IS Blurr.

And if you don't like how bulky the shoulders seem you can angle them up higher to be more like Animated Blurr. Still tough, a sniper rifle for a guy who in some continuities could outrace and catch the round he fired just doesn't make sense to me. I'm going to strap it onto Cliffjumpers back. That and the FP Cliff set ought to make him look ready to go!
