I loved Transformers as a kid, and one that I still have is Blaster: a red and yellow boom box.
My son is getting more and more into Transformers and so I’ve let him play with this old toy. So when he was playing the Transformers: Forged to Fight game on my phone and he saw Blaster as an available robot in disguise, he had to have it. more “Blaster Found”

I never heard of this ridiculous song until my eldest daughter begged and pleaded for me to search for it on YouTube.
