    Third time round for a mold repainted/retooled and then shoehorned into the line as Springer.


    How much longer are they gonna make people wait?

    No they don't. They made a new triple changer Octane before they made a new triple changer Springer.

    Botcon released a G1 Springer from Cybertron Cybertron Defense Hot Shot, then Hasbro released a Springer from Cybertron Evac and now Hasbro Asia are releasing a Springer from Tomahawk.

    But now we're seeing a Kreon Springer. So maybe someone at Hasbro is trying to push new Springer toys.

    The better for them to go ahead and make a voyager class of him, then.

    Now with Soundwave/Soundblaster opening up the Voyager slot again they have a perfect opportunity.

    Then they can finally stop treating poor Springer like a bitch.

    Wasn't that just speculation since RK had them up for preorder first? How can they be direct order if they are showing up at retail??

    Does Hasbro communicate with itself at all? First they tell RK to stop selling them. It's too soon! They won't be out until October! And now they're showing up at retail? Come on, Hasbro, get your act together.

    that e-mail was referring to the voyagers & leaders, not the deluxes.

    Only listings I see on these now are people selling for four figures for $125. So over $30 a figure, before shipping. Sigh. I think I'll bide my time a little longer. For all the scorn these guys receive, they are a bit of an adventure to get ahold of for those of us who want them.

    But yeah, waiting on good photography, reviews, cardbacks.
