Voyager-Fall-Of-Cybertron-Springer
Surprising news has come from site sponsor Robotkingdom, pre-order listings for 2 new Transformers Generations Voyager figures:
  • Fall Of Cybertron Springer
  • Fall Of Cybertron Astrotrain
Who would've thought we would see a new Springer this soon, let alone space choo-choo, and voyagers at that?!

In related news, Deluxe Wave 4 is also available for preorder.

oh wow.i cant wait to see these.

Wtf? Have we heard about these before this? I just saw this on Facebook.

The question is, is he the Springer we want, or the Springer we deserve?

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.

Color me interested, and I am not even a big FOC fan. These FOC Voyager announcements have been solid thus far.
miscreant
I see Sandstorm.

The hell? That's certainly unexpected (especially being Voyagers). Neat.

A Springer triple-changer at last!!

Okay, it's from the FoC line instead of the Classics style I was hoping for, but it's easier for me to accept because Springer always had a futuristic look anyway. If the design of the figure looks as good as the concept art, I'm all over it. It's certainly cheaper than Defender at any rate. And Astrotrain too? It's going to have to be damn impressive to displace my Henkei Astrotrain.

omg

VOYAGER TRIPLE CHANGERS YES PLZ

I could see a sandstorm redeco from that springer design, the buggy mode is spot on

I wasn't gonna say it.

But now that's it been said, yeah, where is he?

Awesome news, love that springer design and was really quite disappointed that it didn't get used in the game. Astrotrain however is as complete unknown, could be pretty cool if it was designed by the same person but I have to be honest. My initial thought was "we already had a classics astrotrain, why not blitzwing this time?"

Really looking forward to toyfair this year. : D
nemesisconvoy
That will be my c.h.u.g. Springer!!!!!
Sean Whitmore
With all the Masterpieces coming our way, bigger versions of Springer and Blitzwing can only be good things.
archieboy
I will patiently wait for a Sandstorm remould/repaint.
deathsheadII
not a fan of the foc line but wow a triple changer!! now give us mp springer and mp blitzwing

frickin AWESOME

More up for Sandstorm than Springer, but that's an inevitable repaint.

Astrotrain, however, is bought in an instant. It would have to be Airachnid-level bad not to be.

*swoon*

PLOT TWIST!

Astrotrain's third mode is actually Airachnid!

DUN DUN DUN

If it's really that design Hasbro, you already have my money.
deathsheadII
looking at that picture of springer it actually looks like he has a 4th mode
gokuz23
I really wish they would release a Voyager Megatron but then again Optimus would be way out of scale

Methinks Hasbro is feeling the heat from third parties.
zebramatt
MINE!

Anything that drives down the price of Warbot Defender is good in my view (then I can actually get one for less that 100.00).

If I was a gambling man, I would sell my Defender now and make a nice profit on the deal.

But I'm a pussy, so I'll wait till i have this Springer in hand before deciding. Hopefully I'll still break even.
soundwaverulls
Um... What?!?!?! They weren't even in the game, were they?! But despite that, I may get Springer for the multi-continuity Wrecker group I'm going to make but I think I'll pass on Astrotrain. I've never been a fan of train Transformers.

Edit: Wait, that's official concept art from The Art Of Fall Of Cybertron!!! If he ends up looking like that, he's bought on siOh wait I'm Australian. If I ever get round to it, I'll gleefully buy him online.
Hot Shot.
Someone catch me. I think I'm about to faint.

Yet more FOCing Generations toys. I want some Classics please. If not for the GDO line we would only be getting FOC toys from Generations!

or does he split into 2 parts?

Prime Jetscream
I wonder if they'll be in the style of FOC or just plain Generations now?
Did Astrotrain have art in the FOC art book?
GAUGE
bring on the repaints lol
TCracker
Great. Now those who scalp warbot defender can go to hell.
Samuraidaikon
Voyager Astrotrain... anything confirming these actually are triple changers? I see nothing in the description... And the game art of Springer may not be what the figure design actually is. If Astrotrain's a half-decent triple changer he's definitely replacing my classics version! Astrotrain needs to be a bigger con imo .

Springer on the other hand, I'm quite content with Defender as a large deluxe. This new mold will have to be pretty mind blowing for me to bite. Even then I may wait for potential Sandstorm repaint.
MyTea Boc
Holy hell. Finally a triple changing springer from Hasbro. Thank the maker!
Johnator
Glad they are making these and buying them but I really wish they would make a classics Blitzwing.
Hiro Prime
Hmmm...

Voyager Triple Changers. I hope they go over real well. Then maybe we'll see a few more of them. (and the suggested Sandstorm out of him would work for me if it ment getting two Autobot Triple Changers.)
KnightHawkke
I want that springer.. now... now now now!!

Stubot

The game art looks like the front bumper and windshield of the car and flight mode are fairly similar, so I assume he's intended to be one piece.

Holy hell yes!

YES. Why hasn't anyone tackled this yet? You'd think a third party would've come up with something by now...
Ravenxl7
Interesting. Definitely out of left field. I didn't even know these two had FoC designs. I can't seem to find any images of Astrotrain's design, so I'm curious to see what he'll look like. Can't say that I'm all that interested in Springer's design, but I'll wait and see how the actual toy looks before giving it too much thought.
