Toy Review: Transformers Robots in Disguise (2015) Blurr (Legion)


Review:  #373
Name:  Blurr
Brand:  Transformers
Allegiance:  Autobot
Line:  Robots in Disguise (2015)
Year of Release:  2017
Size Class:  Legion (Wave 11)
Mold Status:  new

VEHICLE MODE:


Blurr transforms into a blue sports car, with a bright blue for the windshield, and everything else a darker shade of blue.


The back has a bit of a gap due to transformation, and the rounded shape is kind of odd, but otherwise, this is a great vehicle mode.


Being a Legion-sized figure, he is fairly small.  Above is a comparison against RiD Legion Optimus Prime.


There's an insignia on the left side, which you can scan for the app to unlock the character temporarily.  A functional vehicle mode.

TRANSFORMATION:

As you'd expect, transforming Blurr to robot mode is very easy.  There isn't anything surprising here, although the spoilers folding up for the shoulders is a nice touch.

ROBOT MODE:


Robot mode isn't as sleek as you'd expect, instead opting for a bulkier look thanks to the shoulders and thicker legs.


He has half of the vehicle on his back as kibble, which sits flush against the torso so it isn't a problem.


The headsculpt is great, with a splash of white.  The goggle-like eyes look great.


Height-wise, he's average.


Articulation is restricted to his shoulders, hips, knees and ankles.


The shoulders are big enough to hamper the articulation there but on the whole, not too bad for a figure of this size.


A decent robot mode, which, while it doesn't do anything new, is still very solid.

OVERALL:

Blurr is a nice solid figure in the RiD line.  Both modes won't blow you away, but both are solid, doing everything right and doesn't take any risks.  Since he's a relatively inexpensive figure, Blurr is recommended.
