UltraPrimal wrote:It's like Classics Springer. A few years back, a Hasbro design book was given to a few VIP fans that had a close relationship to Hasbro. In that book was a possible design for a Classics-style Springer. Now whether that design was leaked to FansProject and that's where they drew inspiration from or if their Defender toy was already designed and it was just a coincidence is unknown. But now Hasbro cannot produce their own Springer because it would be too similar to Defender. That's probably why they rushed out their own Wreck-Gar/Junkion figure. To cock-block FansProjects own planned version that they showed off at TFcon 09.
I'm going to call BS on that, FP desinged and announced Defender after Hasbro announced in 08 that there won't be another Classics Springer, because the BotCon Games of Decepticon Springer repaint of Cybertron Defence HotShot and the Universe 2.0 Springer repaint of Cybertron Evac where "good enough" and "covered all aspects of the character".
Also, I'm completely let down by this. I was hoping for something better than G1 Soundwave, but this has the exact same problems I have with G1 Soundwave, so no thank you.

Leave it to Dead Metal to have the word 'Pronz' in his signature.
