Not sure if this Blurr is as fast as the old G1 Blurr, doesn't seem it.
Car mode: First his wee mini con. Incinerator appears to be a dragster of sorts, he's blue with a black windshield and an orange engine and wing. He looks sleek in this mode, very sleek. Quick transformation later and Incinerator is in robot mode. Makes me think of a character from Star Trek, LaForge, who used to wear a visor. The colours are mostly grey with some blue and some orange, the eyes/visor are red. The front part of his car mode becomes his right arm, that seems to hold him fairly steady. A good little mini con.
Blurr is a kind of race car or something, maybe from the future. He's mostly grey with a yellow windshield and some blues to give a little colour to the grey. He has stripes on his sides of his front and the back of the car seems to be a loop kind of idea where Incinerator can slot into the back of him and make his wings filp down, turning Blurr from car into jet carish mode.
The missile launchers are annoying as it takes little for them to come loose and fall off, so best be gentle. The wheels roll nicely, pity they're not rubber though, and the whole mode looks sleek and fast. A good mode this, looks great next to a truck TF.
Robot mode: Slightly annoying transformation later, because of his arms, and you have him standing, kind of. He seems to be very back heavy since most of his car mode is on his back, it looks strongly like a cape of sorts.
The colours become more blue this time with a red Autobot symbol showing really well. There's a little bit of orange, not a lot. His head is nice, it looks like a mix of a knight and a biker in a way, it's well made.
His legs don't move as such which is a shame because Blurr would look great with some posing, especially after you slot his missile launchers into his arms. Not a bad mode this, the colours are good and if he had been thought of better, he would have a lot of potential. Good, just not great.
A fun toy, if somewhat lacking poseability like a lot of Armada toys. His car mode is the most fun, it's got a lot of potential for ideas. Worth buying, beware his missile launchers though as they are very loose in their slots. Good toy, not perfect, but good, worth owning.
