    Firstly, props to mintcondition and mouseak for the idea.
    This is just some thing I cobbled together for the heck of it. Got a spare PRID Knockout and primarily I used:

    - His arm and elbow joint for the heels. Jammed in a post and clipped in the wheels. And yes, the wheels do rotate.
    In order to ensure free movement and rotation, I butchered the ball joint on KO's hips and crazy glued it to the back of the lower legs. The pic with the rear shot attached clearly illustrates how it is done.

    - As for the pod launchers on the wings, I did the same thing and jammed in a post with a ball joint and clipped on the wheels.

    - he now has his car mode and the additional thought out Gerwalk mode. :D 

    Thanks for looking.

    EDIT: 12th Aug 2012
    Reworked the transformation scheme and overall look of Springer. Added a port so he can store his blade in both modes

    That's... pretty awesome... I'd love to see some better pics of the feet to see what you did there.

    This looks great! I was mightily disappointed that Hasbro besmirched the triple-changer status of Springer by going two modes only, but thankfully you've rectified this in fine form!

    Wow, that looks really good. I think you all pulled off something spiffy there.

    Can't wait to pick up my own Springer now.

    Looks great. And you'd think that Hasbro can EASILY do this.

    Especially after looking over the toy and seeing how few add-on parts were utilized. This is essentially a glorified fan mode if you really think about it. And reusing KO's wheels and in the way they've been used... genius!

    Will take some pics either today or tomorrow. Just recovered from a nasty fever.

    Thanks!

    Much appreciated. :D 

    :lol 

    They can, but methinks with all the cost factored in, the price could not stay afloat to justify a deluxe pricing.

    Will do that in these few days. Stay tuned.

    I think it is easy for 3rd parties to do this.

    Thanks, bro.
