    So as cool as the Evac mold is, it is a poor choice for Springer. Personally, he's one of the autobots I would like remade the most. What do you think the odds are that we will get a REAL triple-changing futuristic-vehicle universe Springer?

    0% = anytime within the next two years. But that's okay cause I'd rather have a new mold for Sandstorm.... but he's being homaged too sooo........

    50% but yea, probably not soon, at botcon when they were talking about octane, ahem, they said that they would love to do all of the triple-changers. Don't know if this just meant astrotrain/octane/blitzwing or includes the other three. The hardest part about doing triple-changers is the perceived repaint value.

    For perceived, read actual :)  I don't think there's any other characters the triple-changers could be redone into, unless you were going to do a Shattered Glass type affair.

    Not any time soon. Hasbro hates us. Or at least Springer.

    I hate Springer being forced upon us as repaints with one mode, he was pretty much the coolest of the movie bots. I definitely want a new mold triple changer, but I don't have any hopes of actually seeing it :( 

    He and Kup both need updates pretty severely, decent characters with incredibly "meh" toys in G1

    I wanted a Geewun Springer toy for a long time, but it's expensive to find one complete. Maybe he'll come back as a real one once Universe 3.0 comes out...

    I could live with Sandstorm and Springer sharing a mold.

    Not necessarily-- never underestimate the creative power of Hasbro when it comes to repaints (Universe Ratbat, Treadshot, Stormcloud). And, of course, there's brand-new characters like Heavy Load w/ Drill Bit. There's nothing stopping them from repainting Octane/Tankor into "Steel Wind, a blue and silver Autobot with an axe to grind," for example.

    Me too, although i would hope it leaned more towards springer in shape and style.

    So one of the main reasons the general public is forced to think of springer as a green evac is because of an expensive, rare, but admittedly awesome botcon exclusive? That seems pretty lazy.
