    I'm okay with the price. I like Springer so I'm totally fine with having...oh, 4 or 5 on the shelf. Lol
    It's funny, putting BS next to AW makes me see just how much more appealing a paint deco can be. Ordered from Show Z, no questions asked on this one.

    @Mks lol, don't feel bad! I got 4 Siege Springers over the couple of months they were at Ross so I can have one sealed and in each mode. That's how much fun I had with that dang figure.

    Damn, this looks great, despite already having a big spring. Tough call to replace, I got mine dirt cheap during a Christmas sale for $27 a couple years back. I do like the brighter colors overall as well

    I'll be surprised if they don't get sued by Belisarius Productions or NBC. :)

    It's so apt for me; my dad and I just recently discovered and started watching Airwolf. :)

    Am I the only one who wishes they would have given him articulated hands too?

    Would have replaced MMC as 1st place imo.

    I ordered it. As much as I cant stand replacing a figure with the same one, I like the colors, better. Face, obviously.

    I'm thinking of selling my original OP if someone wants a cheap alt mode. Hit me up

    With a better face I instantly preordered with Showz. Especially at $70. Just no reason to go for the other springers with that kind of price difference and fun factor.

    I always felt Big Spring was the best overall Springer package (so not picking and choosing one part being the best) despite the colors and face sculpt. I have used Apache because I felt it displayed better in bot mode, but Big Spring has been my favorite Springer figure. The fact this fixes the most glaring issues is an instant order for me.

    This looks great, and looks to be a really attractive price. If I hadn't pre-ordered the MMC reissue earlier in the year, I'd jump right on this. As it is I'm still tempted...

    This figure really makes me want to break my rule about Decepticons only. I have a weird soft spot for Springer and the paint on this guy is right where it needs to be. So tempting.

    I’m just hoping I don’t have to future the chest to stay in place this time.

    The face sculpt itself looks better but they still got it's color wrong. The face color should match the color of the hands and thighs.

    So is this a KO of Open Play's Big Spring? Robot Hero's are known for making KOs.
    I'm surprised TFSource is selling this seeing as how they don't sell KOs.

    Just found out this exists and I'm already a little sad it isn't an OS version like most of their past releases. To be fair though, kinda think much of the OS MP market has dried up a bit recently, likely due to WJ disappearing. Probably for the best, though, space limitations being what they are.
