    Transformation has been pretty fun on this guy. The backpack was a little odd because it would be super tight to tab in and untab, until I realized the top panel has to angle around 90 degrees and then you go and untab it otherwise you will be tugging and pulling with more force than you have to. I caused a few stress marks to show in the act of using a little too much force. Nothing broken or cracked, but be aware of it new owners out there.

    Would anyone be willing to sell one of the heads for this figure? If so, hit me up on PM. Thanks!

    Has anyone figured out what these little tabs are for?

    Two tiny tabs, one on each side: On the back of his leg in robot mode/underneath the "tail" in helicopter mode.

    Is there some way to use them for weapon storage that I'm not thinking of?

    They just help lock the tail together at that hinge in helicopter mode

    Late to the game, but man what a beast! Kind of in awe if this piece. Wish I had a Wrecker symbol for his chest, but a nice silverback Autobot symbol will have to do. Battle on, Saltus...

    Heh, indeed she does! She is a very easy going kitty, but does not like it when we take her picture (also I was invading one of her favorite napping spots).

    This figure has CHARACTER. Compare how "alive" he looks to any of the other Springer options. Crazy!

    He really does, I can’t imagine having one of the other options instead of him. That face/head sculpt is dead on the money and he is just a fantastic figure in every way.

    And that’s exactly what I look for in figures. MMC nail it so well.

    Definitely go for it when you've got the extra bank; I've hardly put him down since his arrival...
