    I do apologize if there was a thread like this.I mean we could use more threads about bumblebee :) . Anyways, I guess I am asking is if Hasbro does release a Springer and its just a car, would you buy it. I know many would like a triple changer but, I think it take away a lot from the figure. there are people on here who own Warbot and would like to know what they think. Also, would you prefer it to be a new mold or an existing mold if you were to buy.

    I'd actually like him as a Jet or Helicopter (non triple changer), not a fan of a car since "flying" comes to mind more for the character.

    He needs to be at least a helicopter. But who am I kidding, if Hasbro released a Springer figure, I'd buy it no matter what it was...

    If he looks good, sure I guess. Though if they're going to stick to one mode, a helicopter is better.

    Like others have said, if I had to pick one of his two modes, I'd pick helicopter. There is no shortage of car-bots, helicopters are at least a bit more unique.

    But really, if there were a new-mold Springer, he'd almost certainly be a triplechanger. What's the point of doing him otherwise? Sure, we've had non-triplechanging Springers, but that's only because they made for easy repaints of existing molds.

    Besides, he would have a couple of potential repaints: Sandstorm and Battletrap. I don't think a proper triplechanging mold is out of the question one of these days.

    I'd rather Springer be a triple changer, or at least a new mold helicopter.

    I'd settle. I really want a Springer to add to my Wrecker squad.

    If I had to pick, car cause kitbashing a helicopter into a car would be harder than the opposite.

    i think, if in bot form, he looked true to comic wrecker springer, he could be a car with a roof propeller and wheels that fold down. I'd be happy. I just want the bot with a good bot mode for around $10, theres always warbot if youve got the mulah and are picky i s'pose

    I wouldn't give a shit if he turned into a Volkswagen and a WW2 Biplane... so long as he's a triple changer...

    One of the reasons I like Springer is because he is a triple changer.

    He was also an incredibly lazy triplechanger.

    But it somehow worked, I guess?

    I can deal with him being a helicopter and not a TC as long as it a new mold cybertronian copter.

    I prefer him as a helicopter. When I think of Springer that's the alt I recognise first.

    Helicopter or no sale.

    's why I prefer the Evac repaint version to the Hot Shot repaint version. We have so many fewer Autobot helicopters by comparison to cars.

    I think a character that originated as a triplechanger should remain a triplechanger. Same goes for combiners and citybots.
