First Looks at SDCC Exclusive Autobot Blaster Out of the Box
By BaCon on Monday, July 19, 2010
Thanks to our man Danny at Hasbro who was kind enough to send us a preview of the San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Autobot Blaster action figure. Get a first look at the Generation 1 reissue out of the box with the cassettes and more than meets the BLASTER!
The figure comes with stickers applies and has a way cool hologram cover thing for the box that says "Transformers Universe" on the top. Check out Autobot Blaster after the jump!

Agreed. I just won a Slamdance on Ebay for 20 bucks......if you can believe that....and another Grandslam with techspex for him and Raindance for 7 bucks.
SUPER STOKED on those scores.
They'll look fantastic with my Blasters.
Saved me a bundle there....right place right time i guess.
This makes me want to see someone do a MP Blaster that can hold 2 - 3 tapes!
You could always swap the legs if you wanted to. The only real reason to get the reissue, besides not having a Blaster already, is you'd be able to have a working tape door.
I guess due to his size we are getting jipped a tape...
This set would be better if it came with Raindance and Grandslam!!!
Good work on the comparison shots. Very thorough.
I guess now that i think of it. It's best that there is a slight difference. Being that if a guy/girl was to buy one off Ebay or wherever, thinking it was an original. Wouldn't know the difference, if the colours were dead on.
All these repro's makes me want a Gen One collection again, but i perfer to have figures of good quality and condition. So imo, repro is the way to go. Blaster is awesome! I havent had one since i lost my giant G1 collection in '96 when my best friend died of drug related death, with all... read more
They are pretty close. I hauled out my G1 figure to do a side by side shot.
Thats not the right shade of grey for the plastic on his legs. The original is more metallic. Like the colour on his head.
Killer box art though!!
i wont be getting this guy even tho he looks good i still have my og but not any of the tapes most importantly im hoping to one day have my device label blaster preorder filled

Shockingly enough, all three of the Transformers exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop which debuted at San Diego Comic Con this summer are still available to purchase as of this writing. While this batch isn't the first to see one piece stick around for a little while after activation, it's probably the first time the whole assortment has stayed accessible and obtainable even for those not riding their mobile devices at work hoping to beat store crashes. So what made this year different? Keep reading!
