Blaster is an Autobot warrior whose alternate mode is a portable stereo cassette player (boombox).
Autobot communications officer. A lover of Earth music (especially rock). Blaster was later grouped with a set of cassette Autobots (Eject, Ramhorn, Rewind and Steeljaw), making him more comparable to his Decepticon counterpart Soundwave.
Marvel U.S., Marvel U.K.
Autobot soldier and spy, a member of Perceptor's resistance group. A friend of Scrounge, Blaster became embittered after his fellow spy's death, though he later forged a friendship with Goldbug after arriving on Earth.
Blaster and Goldbug eventually struck out on their own after Grimlock's leadership became tyrannical, leading Grimlock to send patrols out to capture them. Blaster was eventually caught, but after a trial by combat with Grimlock (standing in for Fortress Maximus), Blaster seemed to be reaccepted into the ranks.
