Good news for those who like their triple changers voyager class. Seibertron sponsor Robotkingdom has listed preorders for a couple new and surprising Fall of Cybertron voyager class figures. This new listing reveals figures for FoC Springer and Astrotrain. There are no pictures yet and the photo is just for reference only, perhaps we will get a better look at the upcoming Toy Fair. The pair looks to be releasing in June.

Wow, I needs me some Springer loveliness!

All being well, this little big fella will be my Classics Springer, replacing GDO Springer possibly?

I would like to get my hands on that Evac/Blades repaint as my Springer, more so the Fansproject Springer homage as he would be spot on! ;)

In other words:

1 ) It won't be a triple changer

2 ) It'll likely be a repaint of something else. What that might be, who knows.

That doesn't mean anything. They could be Triplechangers, and they could be all-new molds. Plus, it's labeled as Fall of Cybertron, and there aren't any Voyagers that match what Springer and Astrotrain would look like if they had they had its notable ascetic.

Must... not... get too... excited...... Will... probably... be... huge... let down. :BOOM:

Arm kibble be damned, I quite like the Classics Astrotrain mold so I'm not desperate to pick up another version of the character. The voyager size has me interested though. At the risk of flogging a dead horse, I'm kind of annoyed it's not Blitzwing, but then again that's not a character I'd want a non-Earth version of.

As for Springer.... Oooooo!!!! Be still my :x If they can find themselves clear to add a rotor blade to the top, and the figure isn't complete gash, then maybe...... Yep! I can hear Warbot Defender's knees rattling already. :twisted:

If there's one thing FOC has taught me, it's not to get your hopes up. After the WFC figures, I thought the best non-Classics line they could do would be a full line of game figs. Well, it happened and it's ****. We hear they're finally going to do a 'legitimate' combiner again...it happened and it's ****. Now they're apparently going to do triple changers...gee, wonder how this is going to turn out.

Introducing the poor mans Defender ! Astrotrain on the other hand might be interesting. Once again Hasbro chooses to homage characters and leave out poor Blitzwing. If they plan to keep pushing FOC all year, it means the Classics line is officially dead. R.I.P. :-(

Not this again... :BANG_HEAD: If I had a nickle for every person who said that over the years, I'd have plenty of nickles.

And a FoC Springer is definitely good news. Making him a Triple Changer is easy, as he wasn't much of one as a G1 toy:

And Astrotrain I'm really excited about. Two of my favourite things in one. :x
"I have Autism and I'm proud of it!" - Myself

"If you try to please everyone, nobody will like it" - a very wise guy.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The news is also up on TFormers, though some idiot wrote that article because he calls the "six-changers". #-o

Seriously, you have to be an idiot if you can't tell the difference between a six-changer like Sixshot and an triple-changer like Springer.

If these are trple-changers like they should be, I'll be getting them.
Reasons: FP Defender is too G1 for me, and a bit too expensive, and I don't have any classics and I won't pay $20-$50 for a $10 figure.
