First Looks at SDCC Exclusive Autobot Blaster Out of the Box
BaCon - 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
The TFWiki has tweeted an image and link to a new trademark filing with the US Patent Office. The trademark? "HasCon" - which of course would be a useful name for a convention dedicated to all Hasbro products, not just Transformers. The trademark was filed just 6 days ago, right after BotCon, which also amounts to some interesting timing? What does it all mean, and does this mean that the CybertronCon name is no longer in consideration? No way to tell yet, but keep reading to see the details of the filing.
While at Botcon we naturally spent as much time as we could spare down at the Hasbro booth to see all the fantastic new and upcoming toys to look forward to. Besides snapping hundreds of photos of all the displays over the course of the weekend, we did a set of display case overview videos as well. The displays were split in two groups, one featuring Titans Return and Platinum, the other Robots in Disguise and licensed merchandise, with Combiner Wars crossing between both. We've split the videos accordingly, and you can watch both embedded below right now!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We all have the convention crud, except for Brian. Those of who can chat about the week's news, the toys we purchased, our favorite panels, our favorite memories and all the awesome people we got to meet at the LAST Botcon! Oh, we also talk about Masterpiece Shockwave, Masterpiece Ramjet, Computron, Liokaiser and tons more!
We were on hand for "BotCon Over The Years," the last panel of the last BotCon! Pete Sinclair led the presentation, reminiscing through his personal collection of BotCon photos and asking fans to share their own stories about the 22-year history of the social core of the Transformers fandom as it came to a close. Keep reading for details!
The third annual BotCon panel featuring artist Hayato Sakamoto was held on Sunday, where he showed off some of his recent work along with notes on his artistic process and his approach to continuity in his work for Takara. Want to know why Legends Ultra Magnus came with a tiny Alpha Trion and why recent More Than Meets The Eye monster of the week Sunder looked like he did? Keep reading to see!
