    If they wouldn't/couldn't make him a triple changer, I would be fine with a good looking helicopter alt-mode. Not enough of those around, tbh (good one's that is). Still, I would much prefer they go all out and give him his two alt-modes. Even if it means one of them would be compromised, and his bot-mode wouldn't be perfect.

    despite my earlier post saying 3-Modes or nothing, if i had to pick between the two, i would pick Helicopter-hopefully there wold be a way to squeeze a third mode out, and if not-well, better a chopper than another car

    If a Srpinger were to be made and as a cybertronian vehicle maybe Fansproject can make some parts to make that car into a helicopter.

    We shouldn't have to settle for just one alt mode...springer is a triple changer and anything else it just would not feel right

    This right here. And it had better be fantastic, because I really like my Warbot Defender.

    Since I already have the Warbot, I'd probably pass if it wasn't a triple changer.

    Don't listen to them, Hasbro. I would also buy a Blitzwing without a tank mode.

    I'd MUCH prefer a triple-changer. In fact so much so that I'd be perfectly content waiting until the next "Classics" line to get it. However that being said, if we had NO other alternative and he had to be either/or, I'd prefer a helicopter alt-mode.

    no triple changer, no buy, i have defender already, they've released a helicopter and a cybertron defense hotshot repaint, both were lackluster at best

    I'd so much prefer to wait and get a triple changer. Not giving him all his modes is a waste.

    If I had to choose though, I'd prefer he be a cybertronian car.

    If they are cybertronian modes, they don't even have to try that hard. It's not like the original toy did.

    (I had him as a kid, and please note that I liked him a lot... with his two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT altmodes!)


    edit: if I HAD to choose, though: Helicopter.

    Triple-changer, but id be happy with a one bot mode and chopper mode.
    Warbot Defender aka 'NOT Springer' pretty much kickas ass, IMHO.

    Triple Changer or nothing. All my thoughts have been verified ala the previous posts, including the Sandstorm repaint.

    Of course a cybertronian vehicle (that is a helicopter, but it's cybertronian). A normal earth helicopter should be Sandstorm.
    And of course he should be a triple changer. I would only get him when he is a Triplechanger.

    Whatever it would be, it should be a cybertronian design, his g1 vehicle modes are almost perfect, they only need to fit a good bot mode into that design.
