Transformers GENERATION 1 Blaster was recently re-issue as an Exclusives to Toys'R Us a few month back. What hold me back from getting it was the retail price which i think is far too expensive (MYR $230.00). First of all, large and fancy packaging is not needed and also what made thing worst is that the product pics wasn't shown. Not everybody know what a Blaster is in G1.
After taking off the 1st layer of packaging then only reveal what a Blaster looks like and both pics from front and back packaging are the same. I kinda like the recent series of Generation where the actual toys Pic are feature at the back of the packaging with its robot and alternate modes.
We finally see the actual product after flipping open the box cover which reveal the photo (left) and window showing Blaster (right).
On the left (photo of blaster in robot and alternate modes with its cassette counterparts in cassette and alternate mode. (Now i know why they are not feature at the back of the packaging. Blaster with Steeljaw, Ramhorn and Eject. Now where is Rewind?
And on the right side a window box showing the actual toys in robot modes and with its 3 cassette also in its alternate robot/animal mode. Again, no wonder the box is huge, blaster is package in its Robot modes unlike Soundwave which was package in its alternate mode.
We can see all the weapons, Cassette and Blaster neatly package together in the box and hoping that it not big to justified paying a high price for it. Overall a nice set to complete with Soundwave and other G1 characters coming in soon. Chhers.
