    Seriously looks fantastic in all three modes. I'm pretty tempted but it's tough to justify having both Saltus and Apache already.

    I've cut myself at the movie shelf, save for a few characters. Dam Cerbros had to drop today....

    Per Grifter Prime on FB this is an October/ November release so probably no review coming up soon.

    I wish they'd send out a few early copies to reviewers. Getting this guy into hands that aren't Ben and getting good reviews would help substantially.

    The articulation is superb, it's a shame the backpack is a bit too big but the pros outweigh the cons, preordered.

    Ok, gotta admit, aside from his chest he does look good. So did Locke...

    Man I reeeaaally hope they nail the QC on this, Locke 2.0, and Abaddon. Their versions of these characters are the cleanest, most toon accurate, and most balanced between all modes, so I'd really like to see how my season 3 display looks with them.

    The best looking Springer across all three modes, not really suprised as the renders have told us already.
    Tbh if the quality is on par with streetwise, I'm fine then.
    ps: Suddenly remember someone used big spring to criticise xtb Springer, freedom of speech I guess.

    Looks fantastic. My only gripe (the chest grille depth isn't great, but I accept it in order to be more accurate otherwise, and still hide shit in bot mode) is the back of the copter mode being all grey.

    But, it's clearly necessary for the other modes, as they match perfectly. I suspect colouring that but correctly would impact both other modes, so I'd rather one mode suffer than two.

    That really is a minor gripe, so if this is good qc wise, then I'm more than happy.

    XTB kills it design wise on this one it looks so natural on some of the stances.

    Damn it's tempting.
