Wow. That Spinger is pretty bad ass. I like it more then that Warbot Defender. I just think Defender is fugly.

But yeah, what's up with everyone side stepping Blitzwing. I think everyone is scared to tackle that project. Lol. C'mon Hasbro. Show them how it's done.

i would be very surprised if that springer transformed, but its allegedly a triple changer so...
something about the way the head sits bothers me, but i'd buy it if they tame down the colors a bit. its springer, not green lantern.

Did anyone read the part of the post that said that IS NOT a toy they are making?

I would think about going for something like that. Price has been the only reason I haven't bought Warbot yet. And since 99% of my TFs are for display only, the plastic vs. diecast wouldn't matter to me.

I get what you are saying. Me, scale doesn't matter, since it hasn't mattered to Hasbro for 28 years.

Seems the people at X-Transbots are being very talkative these days, and in english! I asked them if they planned to make that Jaizaitoys Octane as one of their XT series. Their response:

Hi we have the planning but not copy theirs.We gonna to re-sketch Octane
So they are not directly copying the Octane, but Octane is one of the toys planned.

I agree if all goes well with their "Springer" it'll do well - but if that bad boy is a voyager.... this will be a MUST HAVE for me.

X-Transbots just posted some art of Octane and Sandstorm, definite hints of them working on Triple Changers.
