    Whirl is the most combat oriented of the three. Springer is an all-rounder, specializing in land and air combat. Highbrow never struck me as a career soldier. Whirl on the other hand is a warrior to the core, a member of the Wreckers, and as he's only got the helicopter mode probably more adept at air combat than Springer.

    I vote for Springer. I'm really not all that familiar with Whirl and Highbrow.

    This is a toughie. Whirl is a favorite of mine, but the triplechanger is awesome. Gonna have to go with springer.

    Going for Whirl too. Springer is a brawler and a badass, no doubt. But Whirl's insane stratagem seems like it will work in his favor.

    I'm boycotting this poll until I see Rotorstorm as an option.

    How could you possibly forget Blades, Blackout, and Evac?

    Anyway, I vote Springer because he is cool.

    I went with whirl as I'm guess this is meant to be air born combat, in that I think he has springer more than matched, Highbrow probably isn't getting a fair crack at this, I mean how many of us have even read the story where he bests the horrocon does a number on scorponock and steals his head???

    Its a tough choice, either Springer or Whirl--Springer's Primary Function is Aerial Defense and Whirl's is Aerial Assault, so depending on needs at the time(I like the Defensive bots better)....but Springer's sub group is Triple Changer, so Springer:thumbs2:  it is!! --wow, TMI, haha TMI (info from Off.Guidebooks, 1 &2)

    THIS.

    Highbrow gets trounced. Springer has slightly more impressive stats all around than Whirl, but looking at the most important abilities for this battle, Whirl would take it on the basis of his Skill, uncanny aerial agility and array of versatile firepower and stunning weaponry.

    I don't know why people keep bringing up Springer's Triple-Changing, like that really matters. When has a Triple Changer really been demonstrated to be fundamentally superior to a regular TF? In an open arena, Springer's car mode is just another way to get strafed.
