Blurr - Generations - Figure

Blurr

Drift opened up the Generations line-up with a bang. Possessing a stellar alt mode and an extremely versatile robot mode, he took deluxe molds to the next level. However, Hasbro is never one to leave a mold used only once. This means Blurr gets his shot with the mold.

Bio

There are those who suppose, based on his high-speed history and fast-talking demeanor, that Blurr lacks patience. Those people are wrong. He appears to be always on the move because he always has somewhere he needs to be - delivering a sensitive data packet, or a round of electro-laser fire to a Decepticon squad. When he must wait, he can do so in absolute silence and stillness for hours, until his target is centered in his crosshairs.

Alt Mode

Blurr shares Drift's alt mode. Although there are no mold changes, the paint scheme is in keeping with Blurr's usual palette. The upper half of the vehicle is done up in sky blue, with the lower body painted a medium blue. The wheels are completely blacked out, and the headlights feature smoked translucent lensing.

To me, this alt mode really doesn't suit Blurr too well. After all, Blurr is usually represented by a futuristic vehicle mode that screams "I'm gonna leave you all in the dust". This simply looks like a lightly modified sports car. Blurr deserved better.

Alt Mode Specs

Length: 5.75in/146.1mm
Wheelbase:3.5in/88.9mm
Width:2.5in/63.5mm
Height:1.63in/41.4mm
Wheels: 4, rotating.
Detailed cockpit:N/A

Transformation

Identical to Drift.

Robot Mode

Blurr's coloration changes very little in robot mode. You will notice the gold-like orb on his groinplate, as well as the red accents on his knees. You will also note that the head is a completely new sculpt. However, it is not piped and, personally, doesn't represent Blurr too well. It looks matured.

Blurr has no sword, but he makes do with two hand pistols. These pistols store in a pair of holsters on his hips, the same ones Drift used for his combat swords. The guns fit nice and tight in his hands. If you prefer something a little more powerful, Blurr also has a very big gun with a long barrel that he can utilize instead.

Articulation

Feet:Stationary (technical)
Knees: Pin hinge, 90 degree bend
Hips: Ball joint, 180 degree bend and 90 degree spread. Pinned below hip for unlimited leg rotation
Waist:Stationary
Shoulders:Ball joint, unlimited rotation and 90 degree spread. Pinned below shoulder for unlimited arm rotation
Elbows:Dual sin hinges, 180 degree bend
Hands:Ball joint, 90 degree inward bend and unlimited rotation
Head:Ball joint, unlimited rotation and 45 degree bend

As with Drift, the hip holsters are the only thing that keep Blurr from being absolutely perfect in articulation

Robot Mode Specs

Height:5.88n/149.4mm
Width:3.13in/79.5mm
Depth:1.88in/47.8mm
Supplied accessories:(1) longsword, (2) short swords

BONUS!

While examining the cannon, I noticed a piece that flips out to form a mid-barrel hand grip. I looked in the instructions and found nothing about this. However, I also remember the features saying that the hand guns could form a cannon bipod. Fiddling around, I came up with this weapon. Simply take the tabs on the barrel tip of the hand pistols and insert them into the barrel tip of the long rifle. The result is a very serious weapon indeed!

Verdict

Alt Mode: Nice repaint, but seems slightly off character
Robot Mode:Near perfect posing, various weapons abilities, but still seems off character.
Overall:This mold was ripe for a great repaint. They just picked the wrong character.

Class:Deluxe

MSRP:$12

I do agree with Blitz on this one. And disagree with Tramp about the IDW continuity. And I am not going to get into it with Tramp either. So everyone has a different opinion on this figure. Got It. To me it is not Blurr, it is Dai Atlas's micromaster partner Speeder

It looks like a solid figure but for me when it comes to Blurr you're not going to get any better than Animated.

Now, now, everyone is entitled to their opinions. Let's not get carried away. I stated that I feel this isn't a good G1 representation. Does that make it concrete? Certainly not. Reviews are based on the opinions of the writer. Remember that well.

IDW is still a G1 continuity, thus, this is a . And, in all honesty, I like the new head better. It just screams speed. It's very reminiscent of the Greek god, Hermes' helmet with the "wings" on either side.

I've gotta disagree with this assessment. He does look very G1, just updated. Also, the head isn't based upon his old cartoon incarnation anyway, but rather his incarnation. And in that sense, he is very faithful in design. Personally, I like this design and definitely plan on picking him... read more

I think they should have remoulded ROTF Lockdowns arm into a gun rather than a hook and made that into Blurr.. Though I DO like the look of this one!

It's more of the representation, so far most of the Classic, Universe, and Generations figures have been very faithful to their G1 Counterparts. This Blurr while cool looking does not capture the essence of G1 Blurr, like say Classics Rodimus captures the essence of G1 Hot Rod. Generations Blurr... read more
