Created to play counterpoint to the classic Series 1 Decepticon Soundwave, Blaster didn't get cassette backup until future series. He is relatively easy to find at a good price and should be checked for tight joints where possible.

Hmm, let's see here. He's as big as a Masterpiece figure, he is orange, a lion can jump out of his chest and he likes to breakdance. Yes, Blaster is one of the most important Transformers a collector can own. And hey, if the buttons on his deck are broken and jammed, it's pretty easy to fix. Google it!
Blaster was one of the bigger transformer figures that turned int o very cool looking boom box that would eject and hold his cassette minions.
Blaster I guess they didn't want to call him Ghetto Blaster because that might be racist if they used a black voice actor...Hahah
One of the larger G1 figures, what he lacks in articulation, he made up for in sheer size. The functional front door on the cassette deck was a revelation back in the day. Otherwise, a very simple and fun transformation, but not much else going on with this guy. No elbows or knees, just a big huge boombox! Still very cool, although simple, even by G1 standards.
his ears are easily droken off if not carefull, can become loose with too much transforming, but is a nice enemy for your soundwave.
Fits transformer cassettes and has some nice molded features. The working buttons are a nice touch as well.
Got this on eBay for my wife about 3 years ago. He is in totally Mint Condition, the cassette door works extremely well. A very good find for a great price.
Another awesome G1 figure. He looks almost like his cartoon character but the face is very different. I believe you can get a model now with a more accurate face but the original face mold didnt match his face at all. He isnt very articulate at all but most G1 Figures warn t. Still all in a ll a great piece of history and a very cool piece.
For a G1 figure its got quite a lot of detail and moving parts, the tape eject button mechanism is quite interesting, I have to take it apart to get it to work properly again.
This is exactly why Autobots suck. Jetfire notwithstanding, Autobots are always cheap rip-offs of any cool concept shown in a Decepticon character.
Blaster, on the surface, should be cooler than Soundwave, because ghettoblasters are way better than tiny Sony walkmen. And yet this toy feels like a cheap piece of plastic, with a goofy-ass robot mode that would look better breakdancing on a piece of cardboard than running around blowing up other robots.
