    That a joke?

    Any way here's rough sketch bot mode.
    Itried to sketch out Botcon Springer's head. ( not a good effort though)

    Remember to ask questions.

    I didn't know if you were being serious or not, so I took the joking route

    So, no one else will comment on this rough sketch on Springer. I must say it was better in my head when I thought of it

    I think the idea of a double bladed helicopter and a drag racer would be a good imagining for a new Springer.

    Interesting idea. Having a double bladed chopper and a drag-racer type of car for alt-modes would be interesting. The idea overall definitely needs some work. The chopper blades seem to disappear in car-mode. Personally I'd be happy withe either a new mold Deluxe class Springer that only has a chopper-mode, or a new mold Deluxe class Springer that has both a futuristic chopper and a futuristic car-mode. Then all we'd need is a new mold Deluxe class Arcee figure to go with Springer and Rodimus.

    The chopper blades become the wheels of the drag race car.
    Helicopter consists of pieces of Animated Leader Megatron (most of copter look),Beast Machines Obsidian (toy's rotors), and Cybertron Evac (back area).

    Car looks like a slimmer Cyb Crumpelzone with the the spoiler attached referencing this airplane

    Robot has the backfin/spoiler as legs and most of his build from Animated Leader Megatron with his Botcon mold head.

    Has a sword as well as wrist blaster.

    I wonder if anyone can do a cleaner version of my sketches and if Hasbro comes upon this

    Hmmm...the whole "chopper blades becoming car wheels" is a bit too unrealistic, imo. Maybe if the blades popped off and attached to the car somewhere else, but then you would loose people on the count of parts forming. I don't think it would bother me too much, but I'd rather not have a parts forming Springer.

    Do these rotors look like car wheels?

    Then just use the type of wheels I drew up on my sketch.

    I personally don't like the idea of the rotors becoming wheels period (just my personal opinion). I think having them fold up against the side of the body in car-mode would look much better, and would be an easy way to stay away from parts forming. To each their own in the end. If we end up getting a new mold Springer in the Universe line, it most likely won't be until the line comes back after it's hiatus during the RotF line. I'd say store exclusive, but most of those will be repaints/retools of other molds.

    Intersting design, but IMO Springer is one of those G1 character doesn't need alot of improvement toy wise. Just some articulation in the hips, knees, and head to make him perfect.

    Finally, someone likes my idea.
    The transformation scheme would be from copter to car. First, split the back fin, followed by forming a U with the fins.Then pop up two panels that are on each side of back fins and then attach two panels. Then fold down the rotors to form wheels. Next, pop off the missle launcher in front which brings out a front wheel a la automorph. The gun is reminescent of the Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold. Therefore, turn it into an engine which would be placed on top of the hood. There you go, Springer is ready to race off with Hot Rod.
    Transformation to robot is somewhat reminscent of Cyb Evac except the backfins become the legs and the cockpit becomes the chest.
