Appearance (Robot Mode) 8/10
Let me start by saying that I am blown away by the colour scheme, which is so bold and vibrant. He really pops out and is close to my favourite. Unfortunately there is a lot of kibble on this guy. His guns are awesome. I do not like his headsculpt as it does not resemble the Blurr I remember. And no light piping here at all. So a lot that I love, and a lot that I am not keen on. Extra points for the fantastic colour scheme alone.
Appearance (Alternate Mode) 8/10
I really like the car. What more can I say? I wish the rims were silver or white, but maybe that's just my dodgy taste. A job well done.
Mostly enjoyable but the hip kibble in particular annoys me and tends to get into the way. An unorthadox leg transformation makes up for this somewhat.
Almost perfect. I love the fact that he can hold his rifle 2 handed. The only flaws for me are that the feet cannot be posed at all, and the lack of a waist joint.
I have no complaints with this aspect, Blurr feels very solid. I guess this is helped by the lack of a waist joint, which I think would have caused the whole toy to be fragile, given how the various bits of kibble seem to put pressure on the waist when in vehicle mode.
Overall - 41/50
Blurr scores more highly than I would have thought, but then he has a lot of very good attributes with my only real criticism being 'is this Blurr'? Whoever he is, I like.
