    Wouldn't buy it if it didn't come packaged with Ratbat.

    Botcon repaints arent part of universe, they are considered Timelines, I believe, but I don't know if thats true every year

    There's BotCon Springer, who's a repaint of Cybertron Defense Hot Shot.

    And then there's Universe Roadbuster (in the other comic two-pack), who's also a repaint of Cybertron Defense Hot Shot.

    Okay.... There are two Springers in the "Classics Series".

    Timelines is not part of Universe. But both Universe and Timelines have figures that belong to the Classics Series.

    However, digging a bit more into it, it appears that Springer & Ratbat's package says "War Within Series" instead of "Classics Series" and the Roadbuster/Dirge set says.... G1 Series??

    Screw it. They're classics as far as I'm concerned. Though I prefer the Timelines Classics Springer & Dirge for my shelf. So Ratbat & Roadbuster will be happily added to my collection...

    Considering he's a redeco of Cybertron Evac, that's hardly surprising.

    I'm actually really dissapointed about this. All of the Decepticon Triple changers get new versions, even if Blitzwing is in Animated it is an update. I was hoping Springer would be the first Autobot triple changer to get a Classics 2.0 version, but I see he is just going to be a re-paint. I normally don't complain, but I am really unhappy with this version of Springer.

    Officially, he's not part of the "Classics Series". He's part of the "War Within Series". Just FYI.... Of course, the "official" Classics Springer (Botcon) isn't a triple changer either...

    Is it just me, or does Springer look hand painted?

    I wasn't really expecting factory perfect paint apps, but this really looks amateurish. Maybe I'm not being realistic.

    Do Not Want.

    Besides my Botcon Springer fits with the Classics line just fine.

    definately not getting this, it doesn't look anything like the character, they might as well have repainted wheelie and called him springer
