    Well, hi there. It's been awhile.

    2011 has not been as I'd planned. My customs output was much lower than expected and I'm still a couple of figures away from being totally caught up on some long commissions, but here's a finished project that had been simmering slowly for a long while.

    SPRINGER

    So, he's a combo of Cybertronian Soundwave from WFC and Cybertron Hot Shot's head. Add on a magnetic copter blade which still freely spins and you have ol' Springer here. I was actually very happy with the way this one turned out aesthetically; he just looks like Springer. I went with the new FOC title in anticipation of the game.

    Thanks for your time!

    Clever photography, but the rotor's not centred. That throws off the third mode to me.

    Still, not bad at all. :)

    Love the bot mode and car mode! Doesn't have a real helicopter mode tho. But overall, the paint job is spot on and eye-pleasing! Nice work.

    Love it! I'm not entirely sure the copter mode works, but its certainly a kick ass bot and car mode.

    Nice paint job there. This makes me want to attempt one. I think he might benefit from losing the little yellow spikey bumper thing though. I mean on one hand it makes him look bigger but on the other it would set him apart from SW and make the alt modes look sleeker.

    liked what u did for springer.
    i took the opportunity to explore the heli-mode.
    i like the vanes on his shin, looks like air intake. one of avatar's heli?
    did a quick digibash.
    hope u don't mind me posting it here. shoot me a pm if u want me to take it down.
    slot in his elbow between the gap on his shin to interlock.

    The new head and great paint job make him look VERY much like Springer. I wish more had been done though to make him look less like WFC SW, like maybe doing something to the chest box, and the helicopter mode isn't working for me at all.

    considering how difficult it is to find a good repaint of springer(nontransformable) this is definetly a top notch and superb custom. I especially like the helicopter weapon attachment. Might i suggest looking into adding a weapon in the shape of a helicopter tail to add to the mold? i think that will seal the deal into making this possibly the best springer ever released(IMO) since Defender.
