    I was really hoping that more of the Wreckers would show up in the film. Maybe they will, who knows right? I'm a hugs Wrecker fan (Really???) and Springer is my favorite of them all. He gets it done, saves the day and gets the girl.

    The new Skyhammer figure is still my personal fave. The custom head I added has a visible neck post (Cobbled together from ROTF Arcee and random Gundam kibble). I think the slightly smaller head with a actual neck gives the figure some better proportion. I wanted his head to look helmety (is that a word?) but still alien when it was done. I modded the Mech Tech gun/sword so it can stay extended without you having to hold it in place. The additional chain gun is from a Iron Man fig with a Gundam Wing ammo can attached. The sword is from Universe 2.0 Dirge, Generations Drift's longsword and some Gundam parts. All 3 weapons can combine and be stored on the rear left shoulder via peg hole.

    The paint is Testors Model Master with Games Workshop paints and washes and detailing. Prep work for him SUCKS. You will be sanding the hell out of some joints and rub areas....believe it-tebayo.

    More pics HERE. Thanks for looking and Enjoy.

    Dammit, Earl! I knew you'd snag one of these before I could and do this guy some justice. lol

    Excellent work! I want one to do a Classics-styled Springer from it--with that G1 style head. Looking forward to seeing more and keep up the great work, my friend!

    You might have just convinced me to use this mold for a Henkei Springer. Can't wait to see more pictures.

    Youve pulled the perfect "real world" Springer from my imagination. Now all he needs is to sound like Michael Biehn...
