    So far we have already seen:

    Ultra Magnus
    Blurr
    Arcee

    and recently rodimus was confirmed. That really only leaves out Springer (and I guess wheelie (ugh...)) from the season 3 G1 cast. Any thoughts on completing it by adding him? I hope they do, but I hope they make him a real triple changer at least as cool as Blitzwing.

    Old guys are always forgotten...

    Anyways, it would be cool for Blitzwing to have an Autobot counter-part/rival.
    Although maybe they should use Sandstorm of Broadside instead?

    Springer would appear if he has Kup or Blurr etc. to join him.But Blurr's there,so I consider that.

    Sandstorm would appear,but Tankor/Octane is a more suitable rival for him.

    I dunno about Broadside :( .

    We've had three Springer figures/homages since energon (counting Energon Bulkhead),
    and one deco homage to Kup in Cybertron.

    Definitely would rather see Kup than Springer.

    I'd love to see both Kup and Springer. Springer hasn't had a triple-changer toy since G1, so I'm really intrigued (though after seeing Blitzwing I'm a bit skeptical of the vehicle modes)

    In fact I hoping to see Springer as a kind of older brother to Rodimus
    And Kup... he MUST scared the cadets of the Autobot academy...specially the ones who dont behave:ev:  And be a kind of foster father towards Rod (have you seen M. Lufi-from One piece- grandfather? Almost like him he should be)

    If the rumor about the Elite guard will stay on Earth to prevent more Decepticons attacks is true, certianly Magnus will have to left someone on charge during his abscence. MUST BE KUP

    Ultra magnus:... Thats if why I going to leave a good veteran on charge while I am gone
    Cadet: And who is he, sir?
    Kup: Me, boy
    Pass a second. All the cadets scream and run out of the room
    Rodimus: Old Rusty, you are scary!
    Kup: (smack him) MORE RESPECT TO THE OLDER ONES RODIMUS! When I was your age there wasnt those big cannons, and you have to walk 290 km in other to have a nice weapon so you didnt become decepticons replacem parts! And there wasnt...!
    Rodimus: Oh no, there goes again! RUN!

    :lol  Kup as drill sergeant.

    I'd love to see both Kup and Springer in TFA. I'm super excited about Rodi next season and can't wait to get the Blurr and Wreck-Gar toys.

    Springer is possible, though there are no plans for him(or so we heared)and if he does appear then he wouldn't be around the season three revived characters. Also I remember Kickback saying that there are no plans for Kup.

    Springer would be nice. I think we might get Animated due to the fact that both Botcon and Universe don't triple change, don't have proper G1 Springer paintjob, no car mode. Therefore, Animated Springer would turn into a speedy car as well as a jet (since helicopter is already used). Give him these things: an awesome design, a broadsword, a wrist launcher, and Neil Ross/ (Mr.) Doug Lawrence.

    I don't think we've had a regular helicopter in Animated. Have we?

    I think both springer and Kup should be in it. springer would be the first airbourne autobot on the show and kup because I think he's just get on Ratchet's nerves with his stories about the battles and near misses he'd been in.

    Jetfire and Jetstorm are the first flying autobots. (not counting things like Prowl's short-range boosters)

    I was talking more along the lines of a more traditional single rotor helicopter.

    Although I don't see what wrong with more than alt modes that sort of fall into the same category.
    Look how many cars there are, and AniProwl suggested he be a jet instead of a helicopter. Look at how many of those we already have.

    I like Wheelie in Animated!

    (just joking)

    I think Kup be a Master to Prowl and Oil Slick also Spinger chould have three faces like Blitzwing did with helicoper/car/robot thing.

    Are Jetfire and Jetstorm in Animated? I take your point about Prowl but you can't really him as an airbourne bot.

    I want to see springer in animated as well, but I'd almost prefer broadside since his design doesn't translate well to universe, but springer's can.

    Preferably I want both. With springer retool for sandstorm later.

    You know what would be really cool? Base Animated Springer on Coldstone from the Gargoyles series.

    That would distance himself from Blitzwing (who apparently developed his multiple personalities), yet still explain his own problems and triple-changing.

    Put 3 sparks in Springer's body, 2 Autobots and 1 Autobot traitor. The backstory that could be written on how all 3 sparks became housed in one body would be epic.
