I think they're all wanting the FT Springer replacement head that is sold out.
Ugh, sorry, you're right, I misread, especially after someone mentioned previously that Big Spring was out of stock...
My excuse is that I didn't get enough sleep and then had to do Christmas with the family. Ehehe...
What he said.
Merry Christmas ya filthy animal
If someone did a cast of apache for big spring, I’d be all over it.
Is Big Spring going to have an updated face accessory any time soon?
Got mine today from Chosen Prime. I had to tighten a few screws cuz there were a couple of loose joints but all good. The tab on the abdomen and the face are the only complaints I have. I tried pushing the face in the helmet but won't go any further. I'll have to figure out a way. Overall, I'm happy with him. Snapped some pics.
Lots of mods floating around depending what want to do on his face. Some people shaved down the back of the face so it would sit deeper into the helmet and onto the eyes. I'm sure there is a post in here about how to do it somewhere.
All I did was use a file to sand down the back sides of the face and the two pegs, then pushed it all the way in.
I'll check those out. Thanks, Dave
Congrats. He looks nice
It's more with the sculpt than the depth of the face.
Though liveable, Big Spring's face is far off from Apache's... Fans Toys' artist captured Springer's cartoon face really well I gotta say.
But Open and Play has got the best transformation vehicle likeness IMO.
They shouldve made the chest go straight down. Now he has a belly.
Thanks. I fixed the face last night. Now its further in the helmet. Still looks weird. I'm hoping a 3rd party upgrade would make a replacement face along with a new abdomen piece.
It does look awkward. One thing I liked on Apache that his chest wasn't as wide as Big Spring's.
Gotta agree. Plus he's more poseable than Apache. Perfect Springer would be the sculpting like Apache but transforms like Big Spring.
So I should get this guy? Big Spring plus a decent replacement face is probably cheaper than Apache alone!
Better view of the mod I did on the face. Not the greatest but it'll have to do for now.
Any talented 3D print artists wanting to create an adapter that allows the sword and gun to be held securely? It would be greatly appreciated.
Gun is secure already. Well at least on mine it is. But the sword definitely needs an adapter.
You might want to reach out to @jream or @autotronprime
Love this guy, easily the best Springer so far. Did the face sanding and love the results. Also love that you can hide the sword in car mode by wedging it between the legs, the handle will stick out like a tailpipe. Can do the same with the gun in helicopter mode to center it beneath the chopper. Really well thought out figure
