    Someday, I'm gonna get my damn Dion repaint from one of these eighty five springers... probably that open and play one just to piss me off.

    The face actually has good details, they just need to stop obscuring them with so much paint!

    Same. I was just hoping that one of the MP Springers out there would be less tall than Optimus. More like Ratchet. That'd be perfect for me, but this is the same size as everybody else's. Too big for me. And that's too bad because this one looks really great. Trouble is he's gotta go with both MP Hot Rod and with MP Ultra Magnus, who is too damn big.

    Wow, this item is on a slow train to nowhere.
    What is their next update, a 3d render?

    Byrin is an mmc designer. He gets given really old versions of mmc's projects all the time, as is the case with that photo of Saltus' very old prototype that was created last year.

    It is in no way whatever an update on this project, just because it is a new photo does not mean it represents where a project is at at all. It is literally just one of mmc's folks looking back on a thing from a stage it was at previously so please understand the context of the photo. Surely you've seen the official promo photos of the colored test shot yes? that was the latest version of Saltus.

    Currently he's going to get one final little set of color tweaks to some of his details and then he'll be ready for full production as the boss absolutely wants him out before cny if at all possible.

    It’s also worth noting that MMC’s Arcee is undersized. Arcee, Blurr, Hot Rod and Kup are pretty much meant to be head to head. Instead MMC’s is shorter than the official Hot Rod, who himself was undersized. Pretty much all of the MP Springers scale a lot better with Rouge and Hoodlum, who are both that little bit taller. Instead of bringing Springer down a bit, we kind of want his cast mates a little taller. These are a little too close to carbot size now. YMMV of course.

    Hmm he looks a tad too big but maybe I could manage considering he is a triple changer. Look at all that sexy diecast!!!!

    Is there/ can we get a shot of him from the side? His waist looks funky in many pics using his ab-crunch... this image concerns me.

    That break is pretty damned common among Transformers with ab-crunch articulation. Most of the time, there's no room for a telescoping internal joint, so it just winds up being a hinge that bisects the figure.

    Is nobody else bothered by the garish canary yellow on the front grill?

    Oh hey, it looks like they improved the paint application on the face :)  Nice work guys, I only just realised it *is slow*

    Personally I think he could probably have used some outlining on the cheekbones (similar to what Apache has) to improve definition, but overall it's looking better.

    Is that FT Apache's sword he's holding? Why not hold his own?
    Ridiculous pelvic thrust aside, the figure looks nice.

    It appears to be his own sword, it's actually used in the helicopter mode pics. They do look a lot alike though huh?

    Also, I updated the front page post! So many great photos of this guy front and center now.
