    been some time since I've submitted anything partly due to commish stuff and partly to do with IRL junk. This is mostly a redo of an older pic that in retrospec fell a bit short but I've wanted to do the idea justice so I've given it a 2nd shot since not too long ago I did Rodimus and I'd like to keep the S3 ball rolling to some degree

    So here is Springer A bit different from what it seems most toys and comics seem to depict him as mostly due to my own views of him I've had since I was a kid to summarise.... I've never read any of the old school wreckers stuff so character wise to me he was HR's best friend and he had a rather dark seance of humour. As for the alt mode it always looked like a futuristic car from the standpoint of some one in the 80's to me so I wanted to go with a super car rather then an APC that he seems to be these days.

    Hasbro should hire you. This is a great design for a generations springer!

    Frickin awesome man. Is that an actual car, or an amalgam of cool looking sports cars? There seems to be a bit of Ferrari, Lambo, and Audi all rolled into one.

    Chopper mode is slick and Robot mode is awesome, I can see the transformation nearly perfectly.

    This is a really impressive design. If your hotrod design is the one I'm thinking about then this makes two for two. I'd be interested in how you handle arcee, as I was largely dissatisfied with the transgendered incarnation IDW is currently running with. She's way too sharp. Keep up the good work.

    Great work as always, Blitz. I can't wait for the colorized version.

    I've always thought of Springer as more of a MASK vehicle with a robot mode rather than a triple changer (i.e. He was a "real" kind of future car that had a copter attack mode, but that wasn't a "real" kind of helicopter) and your design nails that idea, IMO. I wish Hasbro could give us a deluxe like this.

    That is AWESOME! Not only is that the coolest Springer has ever looked, but there is so much character and personality in his expression. Bravo

    I draw and very well at that. You my friend however are my favorite Transformers Artist. I can't wait to see this in color. I would love to see some action sequences from you because you have capture the fluidity of body movement.

    I think this is one of (if not "the") best character design you've come up with.

    I have to admit, I'm majorly impressed with the way you've somehow managed to make him look like TWO convincing Earth vehicles without any flipping over to hide one modes parts ala Blitzwing or Astrotrain - genius!

    The ONLY thing I'd have to say against the design is that to me, Springers alt modes should always be alien/Cybertronian looking, but thats just personal preference, and absolutely takes nothing away from your superb design.

    I love it. Perfect young look for him In my classics cases universe, Hotrod and Springer are old best friends too, nice coincidence ^^.

    Springer and Arcee were a couple at some point in my history as well xD.

    I asked him how he felt about that, but he told me he thought the market was too competitive... Yea, until you CRUSH it.
