    Just fooling around since I got Skyhammer... put classics Sideswipe's head on him:

    I made it so his head could tilt side-side and up and down, as well as rotate... has better range-of-motion now than with the Skyhammer head!

    Ah...

    And, just to show that he could (with a different head) make a good Springer, in fact:

    Or maybe a Transformers-ninja?

    Those helicopter blades pop in and out pretty easy, and his open-hands hold them well.

    Now, should I paint him red....?

    So if you put an Arcee head on a Sideswipe body, would you get a custom "Arcewipe"?

    On this body a Classics styled head does not look out of place like the Asian Exclusive Springer which does not fit at all.

    I could have accepted this body as Springer definitely more, although it's not a Triplechanger. But the chest painted in yellow would look more like Springers actual G1 chest so it could work. At least he would have had the yellow at the right place.

    :lol

    I know we all WANT there to be more springers in our lives. but i think you should just make him a new original character. as much as you might pull off springer I think you could make a much more compelling new character with the idea. just with his own colour scheme that fits the body and head y'know? mabey even make the blades into characterized weapons. we've had springers, don't force your good idea into something that may not do it justice. either way the head looks good, just mabey go the extra mile and make him his own. but if you were inspired by Springer than all the more power to ya.

    TF: Prime Skyhammer?

    Maybe it's because I like the figure so much.. but I'd see him fitting just fine with a CHUG or Prime display as long as he sports a non-Movie head.
