    It started as a typo but now I'm in too deep to back down.

    How do we order this? Was this something they custom made, modeled after Apaches head? Or did they just have a spare head they sold you?

    Same. If only I could have reached him in song. To the creative thinkers go the spoils. Nice work.

    Im at a loss for which springer to get. Fanstoys transformations are becoming to much like x-transbots lately. I am not having fun with them. I want a fun transformation and this fits the bill but its not as good looking as the fanstoys springer.

    who wants to sell me their big spring so i can try it out? :D

    Feel that way too. How many have really thought of this for the part to sell out? In this entire thread, first I've seen this. Also I get wanting people to buy the whole figure, but they offer things like G1 grimlock heads or force people to buy the next FT product to correct something missing from the previous release. Sometimes allowing a buy like this for customers goes a long way to customer appreciation.

    Throw me a bone here, I've spent a ton on their products, but whateves.

    Not perfect but it's good. If you modded the Apache face into the Big Spring helmet, I think it'd be perfect.
    Yeah, weird. I was about to say something about how he might do that and then I saw your post, so... Weird. I guess FansToys don't just want to sell a whole ton of heads but let's be real here, if you make a business out of selling heads because people just want that part of your figure, does it really matter? Those people probably weren't going to buy your figure to begin with (or have bought it and also have Big Spring), so isn't it better to get smaller sales because of your competition when the alternative is that those people don't buy your competing product at all?

    I think FansToys typically makes good products but I have to say that I've never liked how they conduct business. They seem rather... assholish, for lack of a better term. The way they act like they own the Transformers IP really bothers me, for example.

    You can’t. It’s ‘sold out’.

    Well, somebody custom cast this face please? We all made peace with the face and that just had to go get ruined! Thanks ARSone24...

    I'll send my Big Spring head for fitting.

    Please don't spread misinformation.

    @Blazing Mewtwo
    Plenty of retailers still have him in-stock:
    Openplay BIG SPRING (on sale - currently the best price if you're in the US)
    Open and Play Big Spring
    Transformers toy OpenPlay Big spring G1 Springer Action figure New instock | eBay (baba)
    Open & Play Big Spring - Masterpiece Scale Figure
    Open Play Big Spring - Kapow Toys
    Open and play - Big Spring (MP Size)
    OPEN PLAY BIG SPRING
    etc.

    Not a lot of places have actually sold out. BBTS, A3U and TFsource are out of stock. Robot Kingdom shows no listings but I'm not sure if they even had him to begin with.
    This thing doesn't seem to be in particularly short supply, anyway.

    EDIT: Never mind, I misunderstood. Sorry.

    I don't have Ultra Magnus yet but I doubt it - Big Spring is quite big (and wide).
