    I've honestly been unimpressed by the current proposed names third party Springer toys. FansProject started the nonsense with "Defender", which is merely restating his function like all their early toys. Machine Boy at least tried something with their Green Ghost figure. Now we have 3 more coming under the names Elastic (someone used a thesaurus!), Allen (no idea where this came from) and Apache (a recycled Beast Wars II name!)

    So if you were naming a third party Springer, what would you call him?

    Also, don't forget to vote in the poll above for the WORST third party Springer name.

    Ironically Allen is currently the best looking, though we haven't seen FTs final figure. But every time I say "Allen" all I think of is that seen in the third Jurassic Park where he hallucinates the raptor saying "Allen!"

    That would at least make more sense than Allen.

    I like Apache. Allen is just way out there... I almost feel like it's some inside joke in the 3P realm we collectors just aren't getting

    If they went with a human name, I'd call him Neil, after the voice actor.

    If they went with describing his characters, I'd call him Linebacker.
