The name or term Blurr refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Blurr (disambiguation).

Blurr is one or several Autobots from the Cybertron portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.
Blurrcybertron

So fast he's everyone at once.

Blurr is either a high-strung Autobot scout, a cranky Velocitronian race coach, Armada Blurr, or one of several Cybertron-born Autobot civilians in hiding on Earth, depending on who one asks. He is a fast talker. Nobody can really understand him, though some people can.

Confused yet?


Note: Cybertron Blurr's identity is pretty damn muddled. See "Who is Blurr?" below.

FictionEdit

Animated continuityEdit

Blurr was seen a few times, and only in vehicle mode, riding the raceways on Velocitron, when the planets began to self-destruct due to the black hole.

For his Hasbro release, Blurr was available as an individual Deluxe. He is unchanged from the Japanese release, save for his Cyber Key having the Key Code "d0y2" tampographed on the back.

Who is Blurr?Edit

In the Japanese Galaxy Force line, Blurr is described as being a high-strung, super-fast scout from Cybertron, effectively an alternate-universe incarnation of Generation One Blurr. He was sent as an advance scout to the Speed Planet. This, of course, was never part of the show's events; in fact, this depiction of Blurr only appeared on his Japanese bio card and nowhere else.

But in the Hasbro Cybertron line, Blurr has two separate profiles, both of which also contradict his appearance on the show. The first one [1] was published on his packaging and appears on his Hasbro product page. It can easily be interpreted as calling him a native Velocitronian, describing him as a retired race champion and extremely demanding, seemingly short-tempered coach (with a spark of gold, of course) for new racers.

The second bio [2], which appeared online after the toy had been released stateside, explicitly characterized him as the character from Armada, staying on Cybertron during the Unicron Singularity crisis to keep the Decepticons remaining there from making things even worse.

Finally, the later text story "The Dark Heart of Sandokan" follows the lead of the Hasbro packaging bio, explicitly stating that Blurr is an elder Velocitronian, giving him a somewhat Lou-Gosset-Jr.-y temperament with his newest student, Excellion.

All this is on top of the use of Blurr's vehicle mode model (never the robot mode!) being used in various colors —including the toy's— as generic Transformers from both Cybertron and Velocitron, and never as a named character. Amusingly enough, his vs-pack-mate Buzzsaw appears as a native, unnamed (and neutral) Velocitronian as well.

As such... exactly who the Cybertron Blurr toy represents is pretty damn up in the air. Take your pick, you have a lot of canon choices.

Or mabye he's a little bit of each... it could happen.

NotesEdit

  • The gang-molded Mini-Con partner for Blurr's mold was omitted from both the Takara and Hasbro releases of the toy. In Japan, it saw release in the fourth Micron Booster assortment as Wrench. Hasbro, however, never released any version of the Mini-Con whatsoever.
