    That's...actually REALLY cool! How the hell was that done? It looks like a relatively simple modification.

    This will probably get moved to Radicons GD anyway, but pretty cool nonetheless. If only the chopper blades were hidden somehow.

    Yeah, no. This is totally badass. I saw another wicked custom that used the Tomahawk mold with a bunch of Jolt parts to acheive the same effect, but it didn't hold together or look nearly as natural as this does. I love the helicopter wings used as wheel hubs. It's evocative of the whole design, which effectivel does what the original Springer did: use helicopter parts to make a car.

    That's amazing. Look's perfect for the role. If I had any confidence in my custom skills I'd try and do the same thing. But alas, I'd butcher it.

    Wait.

    Are those Sidearm Sideswipe wheels?

    Why...why would you do that to a Sidearm Sideswipe? *sniff*

    It's the wheels and axles from the Cybertron Hardtop mold. Get one of those you're willing to take apart, and all you need to do is plug them into the ports and launchers. Go forth and customize!

    You sure about that? I have a Cybertron Hardtop and his wheels look completely different.

    If that car transformation requires no modding a 3rd party should do an add-on set for this.

    Maybe if one half of the chopper blades were put on the other side to act as a sort of "spoiler." That's the one thing keeping me from completely enjoying the alt mode.

    Thicker wheels (back), thinner wheels (front). A lot of deluxe cars are done this way.

    Not bad! Looks like the only mods made to the figure are the wheels. If I didn't already have Warbot Defender, I'd probably do this.
