I agree it's the best looking springer so far
That no in my post was a typo. I edited it. Freudian slip maybe... Lol
This is the last I heard as well. I think XTB is just busy with a lot of other things.
It will be released after Manasor toy version. U can see springer and kup in the latest boxart.
According to a Facebook post, samples of springer and Kup are being sent out to retailers
I really hope XTB will have finally mastered how to do fully articulated hands (non-standalone) properly with this release. Same goes for Gravestone. The car mode does look better than FT.
Who’s replacing Apache with this?
if I had an Apache and I was still buying transformers I would be
I’m holding out on Apache because of this, I hope it looks as good as the renders
My Apache isn't gong anywhere but if these turns out to be good I'll double dip and get it also.
I saw a great deal on MMC's Springer last night but held off because I have this on pre-order. Really hoping it justifies my patience.
yeah same, I had apache once but I really don't like the square panel (from transformation) line on his chest :/ it really is a dealbreaker for me LOL I don't mind pannel lines in general but when they are somewhere so obvious and where they are not meant to be then its a really big turn off D: this is the same reason I can;t bring myself to get MMC arcee, the pannel lining really ruins it for me even though I think the rest of her is better
This guy's backpack makes the one on Prime look small.
MMC's is actually really nice. They did a great job on it.
I have MMC's, Big Spring (who's also surprisingly good given the low price) and UT Allen (who's a stinking, steaming pile of sh!t... I deeply regret buying him. Never drink and shop!!)
Allen will be dumped in my 8 years olds toy box and Virtus will take his place. I'll transform all three into each mode and decide who get's to hold which position on the shelf (Bot, Car, Chopper)
Do you have the link to that deal?
I just bought the MMC one. The FT one will just stay in helicopter mode since that's his strongest feature, while the MMC one will stay in bot mode. I have to say though that the MMC alt modes are weak. "We have a fun transformation". Sure, that's because the alt modes are far from cartoon accurate.
I hope this guy has been improved since initial reveal. The big backpack is a bit of a turn off.
It was on Show.Z store. It's a sample and only available in Australia (where I currently am), but was 38% off.
Hard to a replace a figure I never bought. Apache, like the rest of FT's Season 3 stuff, looked good in robot mode but looked like a giant pain to transform. Plus the shoulders had Warbotron-bad articulation. I've been waiting on XTB's to decide if I'm going to go with them or MMC for my Springer, but Apache was never in the running.
Apache pretty much lost me because of the visible wheels on the front of the shins. It's something I can't unsee and it immediately killed any consideration of the figure for me.
I needs this Springer. Fingers crossed this still happens after their Menasor.
