    for a triple changer, that's pretty damn good!! They are probably the toughest bots to design.

    The bot mode looks amazing, the copter mode, just as amazing, the car mode is the most lacking, like almost every triplechanger, you end up with a vehicle mode with gaps, but there's only so much you can do. It's certainly better then Hasbro's attempts (astrotrain and tankor)

    Really hope this doesn't hurt FP. I love their products and have not been disappointed by them, and this looks to be just as awesome as any of their other products. As for all the gripe on how he looks, my only gripe is I wish his paint scheme wasn't so weird looking. More green less gray. Either way, he's bought, whatever the cost.

    I would love to get this but scared to see how much it is. I wonder if it will be a deluxe or voyager.

    make a figure of this sophistication or quality. It won't produce enough profit in their eyes.
    To all those who think they will, Universe Galvatron says hi.

    Well I think if everyone stopped calling it S******* then it would make it alot less likely to be stopped, maybe I dunno call it Defender just like they did.

    Very hot! Still hoping the price is under 100 bucks. It's amazing that this figure is only 40% and will be ready by Feb, but the Protector add on armor won't be ready until March and I thought it was further along???

    Edit: Agrees that paint scheme needs more color b/c it looks like he's wearing some armor instead of being Springer.

    It was 40% as of January 2009, although it's hard to say what that actually means.

    The name Aggressor hasn't been used yet, I humbly submit that as an option to name the repaint.

    If FP does decide to tackle Kup, they should totaly call him "oldguy". It beats Dr. Smoov's redub "shitpiece". :lol

    They'd more likely go for something boring like "Veteran", which is too bad because "Shitpiece" has such a nice ring to it.

    Wow, nice piece... and it seems like this piece is going to be more than the price of a Takara MP 's.

    As of "shutting down by Hasbro" ?? I am not too sure if they have any right to do it.. since FP called it a different name. But speaking of whether Hasbro can make a fresh new springer, I 'd say they can do that... but they just didn't pay attention or bumping up their priority yet...

    No, no, no. It's gotta end in "er"/"or". * Commander. Protector. Defender. Collector.

    I'm tellin' ya: Codger!

    (In reality, it'd probably be something like Warrior. Yawn.)

    They could opt for Senior, Duffer or Gaffer.
