I sold Warbot Defender to get this guy as replacement. Seeing this made me unsure if I made the right decision. Luckily it turned out that my apprehension was unfounded. You can lock the calves to make the legs more straight. Light piping! Yep, as you can see, this guy is better than WD on all fronts. Now to rate him based on criteria that matter to most of us. Using a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being perfect. Robot mode: 9. My only complaint is that, yeah, his lower legs could use more bulk. But in some angles, they don't look as thin as they are, so no biggie. And this guy is SOLID, as in no visible hollowness. No kibble too. HIS WEAPONS ARE AWESOME! Alt modes: 9. Issues? Maybe that there are some panel gaps in car mode, but most probably I just mistransformed him. Both alt modes are definitely better than WD's, or any other version of Springer. Transformation: 10. Fun, not too simple but not overly complicated as well. Very intuitive, too. Build quality: 9. Tight joints. Ratchets on the elbows and knees. Plastic feels the best we've had in the past 2 or 3 lines. There's none of that soft, translucent-y feel that FOC Grimlock or Blaster have. My only complaints are some paint apps are not perfect (yeah, because I demand perfection). Articulation: 9. He has everything except ankle tilts. F ankle tilts. OVERALL: 9. Generations Springer is a must-have. He's one of the best figures we've had in a long while. He's very well designed and engineered. Get him even if you already have WD. DEFINITELY get him if you're a Wreckers fan. Now for the money shot. BOO-YAH! Now I just need Sandstorm and Rack n' Ruin and I can die happy. EDIT: I just noticed that the missiles and sword are made of the same soft plastic. It's not a big deal, just an FYI.
