    The question is, is he the Springer we want, or the Springer we deserve?

    Odd choice for a voyager. A voyager sized Springer seems out of place in a classics collection. Would have been better if they made Sandstorm instead.

    Still, Voyager triple changers. Looks promising, to say the least.

    Color me interested, and I am not even a big FOC fan. These FOC Voyager announcements have been solid thus far.

    The hell? That's certainly unexpected (especially being Voyagers). Neat.

    A Springer triple-changer at last!!

    Okay, it's from the FoC line instead of the Classics style I was hoping for, but it's easier for me to accept because Springer always had a futuristic look anyway. If the design of the figure looks as good as the concept art, I'm all over it. It's certainly cheaper than Defender at any rate. And Astrotrain too? It's going to have to be damn impressive to displace my Henkei Astrotrain.

    Awesome news, love that springer design and was really quite disappointed that it didn't get used in the game. Astrotrain however is as complete unknown, could be pretty cool if it was designed by the same person but I have to be honest. My initial thought was "we already had a classics astrotrain, why not blitzwing this time?"

    Really looking forward to toyfair this year. : D

    With all the Masterpieces coming our way, bigger versions of Springer and Blitzwing can only be good things.

    More up for Sandstorm than Springer, but that's an inevitable repaint.

    Astrotrain, however, is bought in an instant. It would have to be Airachnid-level bad not to be.

    *swoon*

    PLOT TWIST!

    Astrotrain's third mode is actually Airachnid!

    DUN DUN DUN
