That could go either way. Like my ex.

I also wanted blitzwing way more than astrotrain, will we never get the 6 triple changers at the same size point?
Who's the 6? Springer astrotrain octane and blitz and?

It doesn't seem right to complain, but I was hoping they'd have the good sense to use that design somewhere down the line. Seems even more unlikely now.

Odd choice for a voyager. A voyager sized Springer seems out of place in a classics collection. Would have been better if they made Sandstorm instead.

Still, Voyager triple changers. Looks promising, to say the least.
As long he's not so much taller than Optimus he should scale great; besides Spring was bigger than the bigger than Hot Rod and Arcee.

Springer! Finally. i love that news. Now the only question is the execution and whether it will be a solid triple changer and hopefully isn't a half-ass job.

Maybe if we're lucky we'll see these at ToyFair? Anyone do the count to see if Hasbro has hit their 40 FOC figures limit yet? Hasbro had promised 40 FOC figures i nthe Generations line before.
