    While I'm disappointed with Springer I think he'll make a good enough base, with his boxer proportions, for a Battletrap custom.

    I agree. I've never been interested in Springer before, but this one is making me reconsider.

    I like how Hasbro appears to be getting better at the "battle damage" effect. With the earlier figures it just looked like random splatter but with Springer and Skytread and a few newer ones it seems more focused. It's on the edges and in the crevices of the figures. Places you would expect to see wear and tear IMO.

    Too many preorders, too many places, too many times. Can't keep it all straight! Geez. (I love options, though!)

    Is Springer a painted prototype or a production model? I'm wondering because the detail is a bit soft in the head and hopefully it's just obnoxiously thick paint messing with it.

    Pretty sure it’s a painted prototype, there are little areas here and there that clearly show grey plastic. HasTak always excel in head department anyway, so I have faith in them getting it right.

    We will never see a better Classics Springer. Unbelievably perfect in every way.

    We will if they ever release him without battle damage.
    But he does look great.

    I'm not sure how I feel about Springer's chin. For the rest I remain cautiously optimistic because I am not sure how the final copy will look like in the paint department (this is ofcourse handpainted).

    Thundercracker looks suprisingly good; I dig the blue they went with. In robot mode I think I like him better than Starscream (which is partly due to that cheap grey plastic on Starscream).

    Yeah, definitely. Those are where it belongs, rather than random surfaces, and it makes Springer look much more realistic and believably worn.
