    I don't know it would brobably work well. I would have to see some pics of blackout with a springer-styled head.

    I think it would look ghastly. Blackout just isn't one of those molds that would translate well into G1 colours or having a g1 head (especially the lime green of springer...)

    Yeah... I'm sceptical too. I don't think Blackout's hulking machine aesthetic matches the futuristic athletic style of Springer.

    Sandstorm maybe...?

    If you work to give him more normal feet and more human hands, I suppose it could work. You've still got his hulking shoulders to contend with, but it could be possible.

    Perhaps a military green/camo scheme would work?

    I'm in the Sandstorm camp. A desert tan would suit the mold, and the kibbly, less humanoid structure of the robot is closter to Sandstorm's G1 incarnation.

    Why do the autobots have so many helicopters? Blades, Springer, Sandstorm, Whirl, Evac, etc... :) 

    If you went with Springer, I'd definitely go with a military green/jungle cammo. That way you might be able to get two tones of green in there without it looking ridiculous on him.

    Also, I've noticed something about Blackout. If you want to give him a more humanoid, heroic, Springer-like look, you'd be better off mounting the (new) head on a hinge so that it folds out and sits on top of the helicopter nose, rather than recessed inside it like Blackout's head. It balances the proportions quite a bit.

    Okay... you got me thinking, dammit!

    Blackout into Springer... impossible? Turns out I'm gonna have to eat those words I think. :)

    The colours are digibashed, the rest is is pretty much just adding a new head but I think this turned out suprisingly well. I'll post more pics later tonight after work...
