Hasbro Transformers Generations Blurr Action FigureI'm generally quite impressed when a Transformers design gets two distinctive characters out of a single mold. Blurr makes clever use of the same form as Drift, although the mold feels more like it was born to be Drift first. Some retooling in the vehicle and robot modes, plus a new head, adapt the design of the sword-swinging IDW Comics character into the fastest-talking character in animation history... more or less. Despite being the same colors as Blurr, the toy feels like it has little in common with the toy and character from the 1980s. (Although it's clearly more Blurr than, let's say, Armada Blurr from 2002.)

Hasbro Transformers Generations Blurr Action FigureThe original Blurr was a fast-moving, fast-driving good guy who bounced from planet to planet, getting himself out of (or in to) trouble. This time around he's been recreated as a sniper, complete with a giant sniper rifle which stores on his back (or under the car). If that wasn't enough, there are two small pistols included which double as a bipod-- they just plug into the sides. Now, this is a little ridiculous, as one barrel faces the enemy while two of the pistol barrels face right back at Blurr. Still, it looks good if you can ignore that, and is an astonishingly clever way to make the most out of a figure's weapons stash.

Hasbro Transformers Generations Blurr Action FigureAs with Drift, Blurr's articulation is incredibly good. While he can't quite sit, he's designed to assume a number of sniper poses and has multiple joints in each arm to guarantee he will be able to aim in more ways than you probably ever thought a $10-$13 Transformers toy ever could.

The figure's deco is also excellent, drawing inspiration from the past few decades of the line and (if you ask me) it looks even better than Japan's release in the Transformers United line. Generations Blurr has more variety in its blues, plus some more red and other colors to break up the design. In short, USA! USA! USA! (Also, the USA release is cheaper.)

Hasbro Transformers Generations Blurr Action Figure

In car mode... well, it's a car. His pistols store in the car doors, his rifle under the drivetrain, and the wheels roll nicely and freely. It doesn't do much in car mode, but it did turn out nicely and looks fairly attractive. Be sure to keep an eye on it and keep it clean, as it seems the lighter blue paints may attract dirt and grime over time due to their unique texturing. I'd say go get this one-- you won't be sorry! (And get Drift too. They're both good.) Below, Transformers Universe Wheelie is shown for scale (and fun), and is not included with any release of Blurr to date.
