Like Stun Stone, Blast Rock's transformation is triggered by a button on the base of the rock mode which you're supposed to trigger by rolling him along. The transformation is pretty much identical to Stun Stone so if you have one, you know what to expect from the other (the third Shock Rock, Dragon Stone, had a different transformation).
Blast Rock is pretty hard to get excited about, unfortunately. He's functionally the same as Stun Stone, but brown and so looks much duller in comparison. I feel like I'd probably be a lot more thrilled about the brighter orange version, but I've never managed to get my hands on one! Still, he gets points for just being so bonkers - it's hard to work out what was going through the mind of the designer, and the spring-loaded transformation mechanism is at least therapeutic to fiddle with!
