TFW Generations Fall of Cybertron Blaster with Steeljaw Gallery

BlasterRobot25

Next up is the other new release from the next assortment of Transformers Fall of Cybertron Voyagers, Blaster (and his cassette turned data-disk companion Steeljaw)! Fall of Cybertron Blaster is one of the more extensive remolds that comes along every so often, featuring a new head, a new chest, a different gun and even new wheels which together with his brighter colors sets him apart from Soundwave / Soundblaster and gives him an identity all of his own. It’s just as well, because Blaster deserves to be more than a mere copy of Soundwave (sorry Universe 2.0). What is great though is Blaster really takes the mold and runs with it. While Soundwave being bigger than his fellow Decepticons was a nuisance, it is less of an issue for Blaster, because Blaster was always a big guy among the Autobots.

Blaster’s other blessing is that like a few Fall of Cybertron releases, he can work with the Classics series characters as a Classics version of Blaster, if you are so inclined. Your mileage will of course vary on how much the obviously Cybertronian look fits in with more Earthly alternate forms, but in robot mode he fits in nicely with characters like Perceptor.

There’s not a lot to say about Blaster’s diskbot partner Steeljaw. He’s a pretty extensively reworked version of Ravage, but I found on mine the strong springs meant he never quite stood as flat as I would have liked. Ravage of course had his good and bad points and these carry over to Steeljaw. Regardless though, it is good to see Steeljaw included with Blaster, because just like Soundwave needs Laserbeak, Blaster needs his little partner bot too.

    Blaster has an excellent head sculpt. Check out the personality in that face - he looks so determined to give Straxus payback for killing Scrounge...


    A groupshot of the three different versions of Blaster which I own (sorry again, Universe 2.0!)

    I have been so looking forward to this guy! I can't wait until he hits regular retail here in mass!! I will finally have a proper blaster for my collection!! Great review and thanks for sharing!! I can't wait to find this guy on a shelf!!

    i like him, standing next to soundwave its almost like a different mold. just the legs let him down (no pun) they just seam a bit bland. got the tomtak vrsion on pre order so hopefully the legs will be sorted.

    I passed on Soundwave/Soundblaster because I already have the deluxe version and feel he fits in scale better with the rest of my game figures and I also made my own scratch built little Laserbeak for it. I will more than likely pick up Blaster though.

    Nice pics, can't wait to get this guy. He'll make an awesome addition to my Classics Autobot team.

    I think this guy and the FOC Soundwave are probably the best Classics-style versions of these characters we're gonna get for awhile... baring Masterpiece Soundwave, of course.

    At least this figure proves that Hasbro can still knock out and amazing head sculpt.

    This will be my collection's Blaster. I had wanted a G1 version but I think I'll break for this one. He is cheaper too.

    Pass. Both are just repaints. I don't need repaints cluttering my shelves thank you.
