    One of my favorites characters aside from Prime and Grimlock is Spriger and I was wondering how well would he fit into the current show.

    My opinion is.... I think he would fit like a glove!!!

    It would be good for Arcee to find a new partner, start a romance to heal past wounds and the Autobots could use some big time air support.

    What do you guys think?

    Arcee's already in a romance arc, fool. Also, I don't think there's room for Springer with Wheeldrift on board.

    With Ratchet. He's like a father figure to Bumblebee so Arcee is in love with him.

    In all seriousness Ratchet should totally be Bumblebee and Arcees father-figure.

    He'd fit in, if they can get Nathan Fillion to voice him.

    Why because Fillion plays Mal and Mal is a young Han Solo.

    Of all the females on this show, Arcee does not need a romance. Hell, it'd probably ruin her character. Maybe later in the series, but definitely not now.

    I'd be alright with Springer. If his purpose were to be air support, however, I'd rather see Jetfire or Wing Saber instead of him

    Springer is ok, but I'll prefer Hot Shot over Springer any day.

    I would love to see Springer appear. I'm a fan of his swashbuckling heroism, which speaks volumes considering that I'm a Decepticon guy. The Autobots could certainly use a warrior who can deal with the Cons' aerial units on an equal footing.

    Plus the possibility of healing Arcee's torment and making her happy is tantalizing - I've always subscribed to Arcee/Springer rather than Arcee/Hot Rod. Oh, who am I kidding; I just want Arcee to stop being angsty and reckless, and a strong, kind individual like Springer in her life rivals killing her off as the perfect remedy for her behaviour.

    Now I support Springer appearing in TFP and forming a relationship with Arcee more than ever before, if only for the purpose of royally pissing you off.

    Hot Shot seems redundant. If you mean bring in Hot Shot to replace Bumblebee, I guess I'd be on board with that. But both of them together would be pointless. And wasteful, considering how small the cast is. He's basically the same character with basically the same personality. It's like suggesting they should add Unicron Trilogy Optimus Prime to the series. I like the character, but...

    But the one advantage Hot Shot does have over BB is that at least he can have dialogue.

    As for Springer, I do think he'd fit the show. Better than Wheeljack does, actually.

    I have to agree. We don't want Arcee to downgrade into nothing more then a love intrest plot device like Cheetra is for Thundercats 2011. If it does I want it to make it realistic and meaningful.

    Anyway back on topic if they can make it wokr and do his character right then why not? The Autobots do ned air sapport somehow sooner or later.

    While him being Arcee's love intrest is unlikley him being her next partner and helping her with her problems is certainly welcomed.

    Arcee's on the right path of her character development so far since Armada which is good but Springer could help her out even more. :)

    You are the one in denial. You cling onto arguments that the link in my sig shoots down and you can't put a theory together that gives meaning/purpose to more scenes than Starcee.

    Yes, I'd love to see Springer, if only he's a serious awkward kind of guy though. G1 personality and style, but ends up doing funny things by human standards...its just how I imagine him. Don't want him to pair up with Arcee because women being in pairings is such a played out role for them in shows, no thanks. Would love for our favorite helicopter-truckbot to show up though. Would he sitll be a trip changer? Wanna see Hasbro tackle that!

    If they do cast Springer, there is only appropriate character upon which to base him.

    Everyone else on this show is kind of dour, aside from Bulkhead. Wheeljack could fill this role if the writers weren't so afraid of having fun :p 

    Seriously, Springer as the boistrous, hotblooded swashbuckling hero. Hell if Errol Flynn was alive I'd even suggest he voice him. He (or Wheeljack coming back) are needed to introduce a bit of colour into the Autobot ranks.

    ... but Robin Hood Springer sounds pretty good, too.

    You know I'm thinking that Springer would be like the Robin from Robin of Sherwood or like Animated Optimus Prime.
