Springer is sexy, but Sandstorm looks an orange Springer with 2 big wheels to me, I'd not get both the original and the retool of a character that was not a retool originally, unless they look as different as classics Tracks and Wheeljack, and these don't.

I don't see how anyone could want that over the sandstorm we are getting
Well, see it cause I prefer the digibash over the retool, not everybody has to share your tastes and no need to call it trash.

This. And no amount of the mythical "always better" Takara paint will make either of these more G1 cartoon accurate since their bot & alt modes look NOTHING like their G1 selves to begin with.

Um.. it has been mentioned neither Gen30 mold is ment resemble G1, right? They are both based on
Nicks FOC designs, which are as G1 as foc Optimus! So camparing these to that is kinda pointless...

Technically they are G1 since Roche's comics occur in a G1 universe.

Cartoon/comic accuracy be damned, Generations Springer is just a better quality and more affordable toy. FP loses this one big time.

And with Springer, sure the FP is somewhat more accurate to G1 in alt modes, but do you know why? Because the alt-modes in G! were terrible boxes with wheels/rotors with only passing resemblance to actual vehicles and FP also turns into terrible boxes with wheels/rotors and only passing resemblance to actual vehicles. Generations Springer wonderfully turns into three modes that all actually look like what they're supposed to be, not to mention that the robot mode is completely accurate to LSOTW Springer, while the FP just has a resemblance to the G1 Springer. Looking at them all side by side, I don't see how you can say that the Generations doesn't look the best and how anyone could recommend getting the FP over it.
......and yet the day TT announce a masterpiece springer that has exactly the same alt modes which would be terrible boxes with wheels/rotors with only passing resemblance to actual vehicles, Starscream Gaga would place a pre-order just like he/she has done with the last 5 or 6 masterpieces released!

Good thread!

If anything Sandstorm just proves there is no way Hasbro can please this self entitled fandom.

Also G1 Springer is/was trash. Come at me fanboys.

Pfft...Sandstorm is kibbly? The second he comes to consumers, somebody's gonna either find out the pictures have him mistransformed or fanmode the crap out of that backpack.

Personally, you should not have used one reference material (the G1 cartoon). Yeah, you mentioned you don't read the comics, but there a lot of source material to go around, such as TFWiki, for example (not wikia, it's wiki).

If you're going for G1 accuracy, then I'd say Generations Sandstorm's robot mode wins.
However, I'm not going for G1 accuracy, therefore, Generations Springer and Sandstorm > everything.
Sandstorm's VTOL mode is just so frickin' awesome.
