    Oh that back. And what a back it is. And that buttflap... yeah I'm gonna stick with Saltus. I didn't think I would even be considering it because I have been heavily focused on earth-type alt modes but Saltus looks like so much fun to tinker with.

    Bingo. Also with the altmode it’s more like a box than a proper car shape. But really I just don’t like the arms.

    It is probably the worst digibash ever, but I think it gets the idea across... until someone does a proper version who actually knows how to use photoshop :)

    The only thing that keeps me from being 100% behind this is that I prefer the shoulders (and options for presenting them) on Big Spring. Is there a way to position them on Saltus that doesn’t look like half of a giant pool flotation device on each arm?

    I've had this guy for a few days now, and he is by far the best purchase I've made since Sky Lynx. I haven't had this much fun posing and transforming a figure since DX9's Carry. I think he looks better than Apache, though ymmv, and has a far more elegant transformation. It makes me wonder what MMC could do with Sandstorm and Broadside. Too bad Springer is probably more of a one off than a beginning of a triple changer sub-line.

    The shoulders can be moved on top of the arms to give it that studio ox/G1 toy look. Not sure if that's what you are looking for.

    This would go well with a red SG/Deadpool repaint of their Ater Beta!

    Saw this up at Toy Dojo yesterday. It's a lot heavier than I expected.

    does anyone think the gundam beam gatling gun will work with Saltus or would they be too small, either the 1/144 or 1/100 scale?

    Saltus is ~MP-10 height, yes?

    Then most Gundam weapons are going to be too small, IMO. A 1/144 Gundam is typically 5" tall, and a 1/100 Gundam is ~8". A nice big gatling might look beastly on a relatively lithe Gundam frame, but Springer's a burly dude. That, combined with the underscaled weapon, and it won't look very impressive at all.

    There was a Kotobukiya rotary gatling kit that might be an okay size for him. Still meant for a 7-8" model kit, but it was a pretty bulky gun that might at least make for an overkill handgun of sorts.

    I can't think of any 1/60 Gundams (12" scale) with big gatling guns. Most of the kits at that scale have fairly basic armaments, unless you're going to splurge on a PG kit, which isn't something you just raid for parts.

    Some are saying these don't have shelf presence and don't work as display pieces. Imagine if they did.

    Beautiful pictures, by the way.

    For 1/100, the only suitable weapons at that size are mostly from huge MSs like Sazabi/Sinanju. Unicorn's Beam gatling would be kinda small. There's the Chilok kit which might be what you're looking for, if you're strictly looking for Gatling types:

    Otherwise, MG Sazabi's weapon fit him fine (Sorry for the grainy pic lol):
