    Hi guys... dunno if it has been done, but I googled...
    and was thinking 3 options...

    use the one in the attachments Helicopter for a WFC Springer or wait and keep the Heli intact for when more WFC toys will come out, since this heli could also be a WFC Defensor or a WFC Bruticus limb :D 

    Any ideas?? Comments are welcome!

    If you're not gonna make Springer a triple changer then dont bother.

    Just my two cents, but the Armada Cyclonus mold is one of my least favorite ever. I think if you're making Blades, that the Universe Blades is much more suitable, appropriate, and an overall better mold. As far as Blast-off is concerned, I like the Energon mold that ends up working with the Energon combiner, but I'd imagine I'd probably defer back to the Cyb Evac mold for it as well. You might could try the recent Tomahawk mold from HftD. I'd be very interested to see what someone will do with that mold in the realm of customs.

    Unless you're willing to do some heavy kitbashing (you can always reshell a helicopter model kit), we haven't gotten a whole lot of helicopter molds. I hope that helps!

    Seconding what SQ7 said.

    Also, normally it pisses me off when people say "There's a great production toy out there, so you shouldn't make a custom of that character", but i think Springer's rendition as Warbot will be pretty hard to top.

    That said, there's always room for improvement, and i think it would really help if you didn't use the Armada Cyclonus mold. Blades is fine with Blades, Blast Off could also do with a repaint from Blades, there's little need to resort to this guy.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I think everyone means Vortex and not Blast Off. But yeah, Armada Cyclonus is just not a very good looking mold. There would have to be a whole lot done to it to impress me, personally (not that anyone's aiming for my approval, but you get it).

    If it were smaller, Energon Bulkhead/Quickstrike would have been a much more suitable mold.
