"When the music is rockin', I'm rollin'."

Profile: Blaster likes to turn it up loud. That goes for the way he does everything: fighting, talking, playing - living! If Blaster is involved, he makes his presence known. He is in the forefront of any situation. But aside from the things he normally does in the course of being an Autobot, he has a special passion: Rock 'n' Roll. His ability to monitor radio transmissions has exposed him to many Earthen musical styles, all of which he finds interesting. But it is rock music - good, hard and loud - that really sparks his circuits. He'd much rather be lost in the sound of a searing guitar solo than fight Decepticons. However, when called upon he will do what he must for the Autobot cause, albeit reluctantly at times. As Blaster likes to point out, "I hate changing channels in mid-song."

Abilities: Blaster can assume the form and shrink to the size of an AM/FM stereo cassette deck. In addition to performing the normal functions of a deck, he can receive radio signals for all frequencies. He can detect signals with power outputs as weak as a millionth of a watt. His ability to transmit radio signals up to 4000 miles makes him the communications center for the Autobots. In robot form he carries an electro-scrambler gun, which emits powerful waves of electromagnetic energy that disrupt the operations of all but the most heavily shielded electrical devices. In theory, the gun should interfere with the minute electrical impulses of the human nervous system, but Blaster has never used the gun on a human.

Weaknesses: Blaster's most obvious weakness is for rock 'n' roll. He will walk unwittingly into a trap for the promise of hearing some new tunes. Radio static has the effect of hampering his operation and even, if strong enough, knocking him out completely.


Finds all Earth music interesting, but it's rock'n'roll -- good, hard and loud -- that really sparks his circuits. In the forefront of any situation he's involved in. As AM/FM stereo cassette player, he can perform as deck plus receive radio signals of all frequencies with power outputs as low as 1/1,000,000 watt. Acts as Autobot communications center... can transmit up to 4,000 miles. Carries electro-scrambler gun that disrupts electrical devices.


**I was really happy to finally get Blaster when I did.  Another one I always wanted.  I picked my first one up at a collectors shop, and later got my second as part of an eBay auction.  I finally got the counterpart to my Soundwave, though you can not compare the conditions of them.  The only cassette I have for Blaster right now is Steeljaw.

    I also am a big fan of Blasters because he is from issue #17 and 18 of Marvels comic series line, which is the Smelting Pool story, which is as I am sure you are aware, the name of my site. It is to me, my favorite storyline of Transformers. Blaster was an awesome character of the story, and I had already thought he was cool being the cassette deck, but his personality really cemented my desire to get him.

In my collecting, I worked to Gain Beachcomber, Cosmos, Perceptor, Seaspray, Powerglide and Warpath to go with Blaster, so I had the whole team from Cybertron.  Unfortunately they never made a Scrounge figure to go with them, or a Lord Straxus of the Decepticons for that matter.

Both of my Blasters are in ok condition, but used and heavily played with.  Both have working cassette compartments, but that is about it.  Both have sticker wear, and I do not have a gun for either.  Maybe one day I can take the step up.**
