Before the war, Blurr was an erudite and well-spoken lecturer. Since then, however, he's traded in his tidy look for the musk of a bloodthirsty warrior. This doesn't mean he's any less of an intellectual, however, and Optimus Prime puts Blurr to good use as a data interceptor. Of the utmost importance to him is retrieving stolen images of upcoming Decepticon prototypes, which he uses to gain an advantage over his surprised opponents. Also, as his name suggests, he's quite fast on both his feet and wheels. Think about that and be careful, he'll be there one moment and the next — you'll be lying on the ground in a pool of blood.
His cousin, Crasher, is regrettably on the side of his heroic enemies.
As Cliffjumper was being "re"introduced to the Autobots in Iacon, Blurr was among the few standing guard around the smelting pool. He laughed with the others when Optimus Prime shot Cliffjumper and ordered him dumped in the Empties.
Later, as Prime was training with hard-light constructs, Blurr gave an update on the construction of the Ark they were constructing to conquer other worlds, and warned that the Decepticons were planning to mount an attack. Prime laughed off this news.
Blurr was seen again when the Decepticons attacked the Ark's launch platform.
- Sideswipe & Blurr (BotCon box set, 2008)
- Accessories: Two launchers, two missiles, key
- Part of BotCon 2008's exclusive souvenir set of four figures, Blurr, a redeco of Cybertron Blurr (itself a retool of Armada Blurr), transforms into a sleek Cybertronic race car. Interestingly enough, he is a retool of a retool, as his head is not the same as Cybertron Blurr's, merely a directly "evil" version of Generation One Blurr. Inserting his Cyber Key into the space under Blurr's spoiler causes the rear side panels of his vehicle mode to flip down into a "flight mode". This mode also makes his twin spring-loaded missile launchers available, which become hand-held weapons in robot mode.
