In the year 1985, Blaster and Perceptor hastily took off for Earth in an starship poorly-suited for interstellar travel. Upon arrival, they unsurprisingly crashed, landing in the forests of Oregon near Mount St. Hilary. They were discovered there by a G.I. Joe team led by Flint.
Blaster was voiced by Buster Jones in the Transformers cartoon. Jones was the voice of Doc in the Sunbow G.I. Joe cartoon.
