Triple Changer Springer

i have always hated the legs on this mold. so i slammed together fall of cybertron optimus prime and Asian kung fu generation springer. i'm very happy with the results. i just need to paints the legs a emerald green like the original springer legs and it'll be awesome.

i didn't need to mod the springer half much. i only sanded away the mini clip connection points. also i shoved the wheels from prime into the launcher crosses. most of the modification is to the prime legs. just a bunch of material removal to make things collapse nicely in the 3 modes

final update
painted the head, forearms, shoulders, knees, back of knees, the tail of the helicopter...

You've also got yourself a nice Sandstorm (for those already with FP Springer).

Well played sir. Well played.

I also enjoy some of the other triple-change variations on this mold, but this one is simple, and gives Springer some necessary bulk. I like it.
