Autobot Springer by Jin-Saotome Autobot Springer by Jin-Saotome
Ah, bet you thought I had finished with Transformers? Well I've done so many I was running out of ideas. Browsing exclusives the botcon specials I ran across Springer and remembered him. He use to be a rocket car/helicopter Triple Changer. Now I knew what I could turn Incinerator into! He doesn't triplechange but still resembles Springer and even has a sword. He was made from a movie Incinerator, Classics Jetfire head, and Gundam hands. I did a realistic weathered military look for him and tried to stick close to the G1 figure's color scheme. Kinda reminds me of the dropship in Aliens.

Geez...first the OFTCC decides to make their next exclusive Punch/Counterpunch, based on the U2.0 Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mold, then they release a Legends-class ROTF Springer based on the Osprey, same as here.
You ever get the feeling Hasbro might be paying some attention to your stuff, man?

I just realised how close this toy's alt mode is to Animated Megatron. Perhaps a Movie style Animated Megs would be possible?

AWESOME!

That is a @#$#@ing awesome job there, I really hate it when they make totally hand less bots. Ones like Movie Jazz don't bother me so much but when they have no hands at all.... blech!

I remember Springer's personality and voice, this is an execllent choice for a body. He has all of the younger bot's energy but just enough experience not to get roasted. Makes a nice bad @$$. Good job!

I'm in love with Transformers Movie toys, and your customs just fired me up even more! I've lost control and collected them as fast as I can, even if it means having to cut back on other (more important) expenses, cuz where I come from? they're not easy to find, and when they appear they do so for ridiculously high prices (even the loose ones) yet never stay on the shelves for long (Low supply, high demand, you know...)

Until now I've acquired movie Bumblebee '08, Arcee, Blackout, Leader Prime, Premium Ironhide and Incinerator. I think they all rock! But Incinerator is, by far, my favorite... I can't get over how sleek his alt-mode is and the amount of details they put into him - and I got the black Japanese version, which makes him all the more awesome. His 30-second alt-to-robot transformation doesn't bother me at all.

Thanks for the super-cool customs! I never get tired of admiring them.

Actually, I just had another idea, following up on my previous comments. You mentioned that his alt-mode reminds you of the dropship form Aliens... That'd be an interesting custom piece. It's an other-worldly design, and it's kinda tough. Besides, Springer's an action-movie type, so he'd fit in as a Colonial Marine. At that point, why not give'im a flame thrower and Smart Gun? XD Paint up decals like "Killz Bugz Ded" or "Game Over, Man!" on his exterior! Oooh, if I had the cash, I'd totally go for it, heh heh heh...

I can't help but question the mould choice. The arms give him a rather gorrillaish apparence, and the tail of the alt-mode draggin around looks a bit silly. I felt the choise could have been better, but that's my opinion.
