An experienced Guardian, Blaster was a veteran of the first Renegade revolt, and also worked with Leader-1 against the Tri-Cats of Fedge. He would later be assigned as a guard on Gobotron's Prison Moon, but was damaged by Cy-Kill during the latter's escape. Repaired by Rest-Q, he provided backup on Antares 3, but was later captured when the Renegades invaded Gobotron. He was later freed by Sparky and Scooter.

After this he would remain a useful Guardian, partly due to his firepower. Leader-1 called him up to help with several crises, including the Insectoids' attempt to invade Earth, the Renegades' plan to destroy Tri-Ceti and to battle the rogue UNECOM robot Sentinel. He would later be part of the search team sent out to look for Command Center 1 when it disappeared on Kolob, helped throw out self-proclaimed Overlord Cy-Kill when he took over Gobotron and participated in the counterattack on Zero's headquarters.

Blaster's first appearance used a different character model, much closer to the toy and using the initial all-orange colour scheme (much like the animation model used for Machine Robo - Revenge of Cronos). From his second appearance, "Cy-Kill's Escape", this was revised with a more human face and the orange/green colour scheme. I doubt anyone's going to put a fatwah on your head if you want to claim the first version is a generic or something instead of Blaster, though.
