    So now we have a legends class springer toy out there somewhere, it's time to begin the wild speculation and fanwank/rage.

    will he be an in movie character? i'm thinking yes, because as far as i remember only the onscreen characters had legends class toys(repaints like cliffjumper not included)
    have we seen him on set already and overlooked him?
    come brothers(and sisters) let us dig through the set pictures!
    HUT HUT!

    Even if we can't find on-set pics it won't disprove Springer as being in the movie.

    As a copter he's probably mostly CGI anyway!

    If in the film, he'll probably survive to become a triple changer in the threequel. Orci has said that they might introduce them then.

    It would be interesting, but I'm not sure he'll be in the movie. I would love to see that helicopter given a better Voyager class mold, I just don't want to get my hopes up. I might get the legends version though, as it looks good.

    I hope that Springer is as blunt in live-action as he was in TFTM. He was hilarious.

    If you get space sick, you're walkin' home!

    I think Springer would be a great addition to the movie verse...hopefully this film...him being a triple changer is awesome, personality is funny and entertaining, yet military like...he talks like a hero! If he is an osprey he can transport other bots around the world....cuz if they are fighting in China how did BB OP and company get over there? SWIM? i dont think so! lol

    Bingo

    I think you nailed it there is that transport for the autobots that some speculated might be a TF. Of course it wasnt green I dont think. The toy is green so im not sure we have seen that exact one but maybe they will color it in post as a painting one of those green is probably not going to happen.

    However that would make springer devastator sized unless his transormation compacts all that empty space

    If he is in TF2, I hope he doesn't have the same design as the legends figure. If so, then he's a repaint of Incinerator, which sucks (not the mold, but the fact that he'd be a repaint).

    Boo for not making him triple changer.

    Is an Osprey big enough to fit in cars and trucks? I'm not sure...

    I'm guessing it's a toyline only character. They already had designs for what would become Incinerator, guess they took that as a starting point for this Legends figure.

    I'm thinking toys only... but being as Springer seems to always get crapped on, I actually hope is in the film.

    Perhaps he can be in the movie. If he is in movie, he will be freaking huge like Jetfire.

    Springer as a triple changer in a TF movie?
    What would he be in the 2 altmodes?
    AH64D Apache and a Striker APC?

    Are we sure that Springer is an Osprey? Is it possible he is a C-130? We know Bay and co was filming in the Boneyard near some C-130s. I know he'd be huge then, but perhaps he would be about the same size as Jetfire.

    I'd love to see Springer act like the resident butthole for the Autobots. Be the movie version of the popular trend "Optimus Prime is a dick", only this time, "Springer is a dick"! :lol
