    This is just a random idea I had while looking around at pictures. How feasible do you guys think it would be to knock out the plane mode wings, re-sculpt the cockpit, and slap one huge prop to give this guy a copter mode? Heck, maybe even leave some stub from the wings for some odd attack chopper thing. Some paint later, maybe some modding of the head. . . Triple-changing Springer?

    Y'know... that's so crazy, it just might work!

    I think with the stubs of wings, and the overall feeling of the jet mode, it could become a pretty solid chopper.

    The truck mode would also need some modding to feel more like a Springer sort of vehicle... but I think there's merit in this project for sure !

    i think it could work better for a sandstorm because of the shape of the planes cockpit, don't have the figure yet so don't know how it could work, but sounds good in principle. r u going to try it???

    what would you do with the massive tanker truck mode though? it bears no resemblance to a super speedy cybertronian car.

    It could just be a super speedy Cybertronian truck.

    I could see Sandstorm since I think the truck mode could be made into a decent buggy and the jet mode to chopper just needs the wings removed and rotors added.

    I don't see Springer's speeder style car from the truck though.

    The car mode would be my problem with it. If you can figure it out, congrats.

    I would want him to be bigger, though.

    I never really saw Springer's land mode as a super-speedy car anywho. With my only points of reference being the G1 and Botcon toys, I figure some sort of weaponized vehicle, armored or not, would work fine. As is, yes, Tankor's truck mode is a bit too long. I'll pick up the mold when I can find it, but some mis-transforming/modifying ought to shorten the guy right up. ^^

    At which point I guess one just tosses the comb-tank into the spare parts bin. >.>

    I will admit that the bulkiness of the plane does lend itself better to Sandstorm's copter.

    So BotCon Springer plus a copter mode?

    Hmm... put a rotation joint in the Rake O' Doom, allowing one set of prongs to point one way and the other set the other way, and it becomes helicopter blades.
