    ive just bought universe springer and im going to hopefully buy a new head for it from sculptbot but i need your opinions on which one. ive added photos of the two choices, first one is the rodimus head (2nd head in) and the second is is a modified cybertron evac head (third head in). for some reason i just think that rodimus head looks springerish..... but it might just be me.

    I actually just read somewhere else that Alt HR'd head looks like Springer and I have to agree. Go with the Alt one the other one looks too old to be Springer

    It really does. I'm shocked I have only seen Springer customised fromt he mustang as a result, the transformation of the alt bt works so well for springer

    I think with a little modding HR's head could look more Springerish.
    I would question the size, I think RH's head is just little bigger then you would need.
    Then again I've only seen Uni Springer in package.

    I think you should go with an Alt Mirage head and add a "fin" to the top. It matches the cartoon look better (at least to me).

    I plan to buy Universe springer and use Cyb Defense Hot Shot's head and slightly modify it to look more like springer.

    Or Even Cybertron Hot Shot's(Car) would do it as well!
    Or try Classics Jetfire/Treadbolt head? it could work? with a little add-on's

    The "Springer" head in Sculpt-Bot's line-up actually looks too much like... Kup? For some reason that EVAC headsculpt just doesn't quite grab me.

    For a smaller Springer, CD Hotshot is a pretty good starting point I think.

    For a larger Springer, the Alt Hot Rod head is nice, though the Tracks head is also really good.

    For something that actually matches the size of the EVAC mold... hm. Not a lot of good options...

    I really like the Hot Rod head for Springer. It would look even better with some modifications...removing the center piece of the crest would make the crest match better and give him a similar "horn blade" on top of his head.

    Like people have said though, it's just a tad too big.

    From the pictures you included I think #2 on the first picture looks the most like what he should have, at least.
