Titans Return Blaster is a triple changing Leader Class figure that comes with Titan Master Twin Cast and can change from Robot to Boombox to City. Leader Class figures are currently priced at $44.99 and this figure is not a retailer exclusive so you can basically pick him up anywhere Transformers figures are sold.
"To decode encrypted Decepticon transmissions, Autobot Blaster links with his Titan Master partner, Twin Cast. Twin Cast is a walking cipher-a bot with the most advanced cryptography programming in the universe. He may be small, but he's one of the most powerful Autobot weapons."

Titans Return Blaster comes in the normal Leader Class packaging from Hasbro. The front of the box lets you see the figure strapped inside with WAY to many plastic restraints (9 of them), and shows the head of Blaster flying away as Twin Cast, however this image is not correct, for Twin Cast to become free from Blaster you need to fold his head piece back into his body it does not detach with Twin Cast inside it as depicted in the picture on the box. The back of the packaging shows his three different modes and has a brief explanation of the character.
Blaster is actually a really nice looking figure and I feel like he is an Autobot that we rarely get so to see him done well is great. His chest plate has a release button and if you picked up Autobots Rewind & Stripes they will fit right in there when transformed but only 1 can fit at a time. The head design of Blaster looks very good and has a clear plastic part built in so his eyes can be seen through his visor. Blaster also comes with his gun as well as a stock "Cassette". He is easy to pose but my only issue with his Robot Mode was that his hands do not open, they are stuck in that fist form. This is annoying but not a deal breaker.
Transforming Blaster from Robot Mode to his Boombox mode is simple and the pieces lock together fairly easily. There is a missing step in the instructions which is the part where you need to fold his hands into his body, but its obvious that it has to be done shortly into the transformation. When transformed into Boombox Mode you can still open Blaster's cassette deck by pressing the release button on top.
Transforming from Boombox to City is done in a few easy steps, the pieces move effortlessly and once completed it does not look bad at all. Blaster has alot of additional guns that come out in this mode and his stock cassette becomes a place to sit Titan Master Twin Cast. As an added bonus like with Power Master Optimus Prime, when Blaster is in City Mode he combines with Fortess Maximus to make additional city areas for all of your Autobot friends.
Titan Master - Twin Cast
I have the same issue with Titan Master Twin Cast that I have with all of the Titan Masters so far, NO DETAILS. They put no effort into them at all and it is so frustrating because it brings the quality of the entire figure down with it.
Titans Return Blaster is the same height as Power Master Optimus Prime if you don't count his shoulder points, and he is taller than Titans Return Galvatron and Scourge. Galvatron being such a small figure bothers me when you get Leader Class figures like Blaster and Optimus Prime it almost doesn't make much sense.
All of these reasons combined is why Titans Master Blaster &
Twin Cast get 4 out of 5 Punches!
