Things would come to a head when Galvatron's continued presence in the past (along with Scourge and the now-deceased Cyclonus) opened a time rift that threatened to destroy Earth and Cybertron. Blurr was part of the group led back by Rodimus Prime to deal with the threat, but even they could not stand against Galvatron and his ally - a clone of Megatron (believed by all to be the real thing). Only Optimus Prime's defeat of Galvatron and Shockwave depositing Cyclonus' body into the rift saved everything. Blurr and the other future Autobots returned find to their own time-stream changed to a different, darker future, where Galvatron was alive and ruling most of Cybertron.

In almost total contrast to his G1 portrayal, Blurr's tech spec described him as a decisive and powerful warrior, whose calm in the face of danger has made him a hero among his fellow Autobots. His duty-first attitude often led him to clash with the impetuous Hot Shot: despite this, there was a mutual respect between the two. He was one of the few Autobots capable of flight. Hot Shot is the name of two characters in the Transformers toyline and universes. ...


Animated series

In the Transformers: Armada animated series, Blurr's portrayal was faithful to his tech spec. He was portrayed as a brave officer and a veteran of many battles. When he is first seen in the series, Blurr meets his mini-con partner Incinerator. He is portrayed as a snob, and was even once claimed to be anti-social from Hot Shot. It is learned that Blurr was sent to aid the Autobots due to a message from his past mentor, Scavenger. After a failed attempt at capturing a mini-con which involved tension between Blurr and Hot-Shot, the two Autobots were able to bond and became friends as well as rivals. Throughout the entire Armada series, Blurr is seen as being very patient at times, yet he still maintains his snob attitude to even his own teammates. During a training exercise, Blurr tells Smokescreen that he won't be able to keep up to the pace that Hot Shot and himself are going.

At one point he saved the life of the rookie Side Swipe from Decepticon execution. Unfortunately this led the young Autobot to hero-worship him. When Blurr came to Earth, Side Swipe followed, but Blurr was soon able to unload him on Hot Shot - much to the latter's exasperation. Returning to Cybertron later in the series, Blurr is revealed to be a veteran pilot as he seen piloting the Autobot ship. Blurr's no-nonsense attitude made him a valuable ally. However, it also led to friction between him and Hot Shot, as well as Rad, Alexis and Carlos. He survived right to the end of the series, surviving the battle against Unicron.

  • Armada Blurr (2002)
Blurr is a futuristic grey car, that is able to have flight mode with the insertion of his mini-con Incinerator into his back area. This flight mode brings out two missile launchers that shoot once mini-cons are attached(much like the whole Armada series). His hands are not the regular sized holes for Armada figures, thus this figure can not hold anything other than his own weapons.

This toy was later redecoed as Transformers: Universe Swerve with Roadhandler. [5]
