Umm...not to point out the obvious, but he IS a robot.

To each their own, though, I suppose. I like my G1 toys, and I like the updated/Classics versions of them, too. I am guessing that more people are NOT fans of the movie-style toys and characters, but to me, they look more realistic than the blocky style of most G1 toys. They look like they really could have been made out of mechanical parts of cars, helicopters, etc.

Can ANYONE answer this?? It's been bugging me, too. Also, what is CHUG supposed to mean? As in

I was a fan as a kid, and got back into fandom because of the live-action movies, but I still don't understand all the fanboy terms, like CHUG or GDO, etc.

CHUG is Classics, Henkei, Generations, Universe, which is the 'catchall' used to describe any contemporary figures which reference the G1/G2 originals. As for GDO, that is one of the mysteries up there with Lord Lucan's wherabouts, and Nickelback's enduring popularity.

Personally, I think cliff jumper looks really good in this mode. His head actually matches the aesthetics of the rest of his body. This "dodge challenger" look is my favorite so far. Springer 's robot form look too skinny, ESP the legs. His g1 head does not belong with this skinny tf. Nope, too skinny. This mode work with tomahawk.

Pass on both, i have a Classic Springer already, thx to Fansproject.

I have a Classic Cliffjumper already, thx to Takara (Alternity).

Plus i don't like this Springer at all that mold just never worked for me. Cliffjumper is meh, the design isn't right for Classic.

Weapon: Two Fusion Rifles
Regarding Springer, if they are set on retooling a previous mold how about the Generations Drift/Blurr mold? His head design already fits the body (it stands out on the GDO version). Give him a slightly retooled sword and slightly retooled guns (Blurr's have tabs to attach to the sniper rifle). Also, create a new spoiler different from the previous two versions. I'd love to have that as I already have the Cybertron Evac redeco which I like better than the GDO version. With Drift they made all swords, with Blurr all guns, so how about completing the set with Springer?

As a Springer enthusiast, I had to buy him. He should be in my hands by the end of the week. I'm still not interested in Cliffjumper at all.

That Springer looks pretty decent for a probable $15.- figure. But didn't Jin Satoame(forgive me if that's spelled wrong) do a custom just like that as soon as that original mold came out? I might get that Cliffjumper just to swap out the hands onto my Prime figure. :-?

yeah, for regular deluxe retail prices that Springer will do me just fine. Maybe a 3rd party will knock up some shoes for him, maybe not, but I just realised, that the robotic, piston-like feet might go a ways to explaining his name, as a visual cue to his jumping ability.


(yeah, don't try and figure out why a bot with a helicopter alt mode needs to jump...it worked in one story somewhere!)
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Weapon: Dual Impact Maces
I am actually more excited about the new Springer than my Warbot Defender. I really want to love that toy, but after his knees ground to dust I am just pissed about him as a whole. For over 100 bucks he shouldn't have done that. As for CJ...I don't really know. I wanted the Prime CJ to be as awesome as the hype, but after getting killed off so quickly I have been considering the WFC CJ. Without too many obscenities, what are your thoughts about the WFC CJ or this new GDO CJ?
