Love what I'm seeing so far. HasTak take note: this is how a modern Springer should look like.

Not quite as nice as I had imagined it would be, still it is exponentially better than any version of Springer Hasbro has some up with. Fansproject continues to fill the (rather large) gap in the collector's market.

I see a big blank space waiting for a Reprolabels :BOT:!

Simply awesome in all modes! I really like the futuristic looks the alts have, and the botmode looks perfect. I can't believe this has metal parts too! I always wanted G1 Springer most of all the triplechangers, but this one beats the crap out of that one. And yes, it does seem to have room for Reprolabels.

I'm less impressed with the deco that I should be. It's pretty plain. On the bright side, it looks like he can dual wield pistols.

I may actually do some Repro labels for him if they make a set.

Hmm. Surprisingly I'm also less impressed than I thought I'd be. I think it has to do with the colors looking just a bit washed-out. Perhaps it's due to the photography. Not to mention the pose they put him in isn't very exciting. I'm still pretty stoked, hopefully he turns out for the best.

I'm liking the helicopter mode the most so far. Bot mode is alright, could be sweet with some better action posing.

Couldn't have summed it up better myself.

Wow, that paint is disappointing. It seems so pale. The head also seems to lack any real contrast.

Real colors will always be slightly dissappointing compared to one's own imagination. Especially after such a long wait.

Damn, and here I was really looking forward to this guy but he seems to be lacking his main color "Green" they should have used a mixture of a light and dark green instead of gray or even they could have changed the light gray into a darker gray just like Hasbro did with the variant of Scattorshot. I wonder why Fansproject didn't show these pics off back in January to show us and get some feedback from the fans. All I can say is I hope it looks good in person if not it will probably be sold to a fellow collector.

The TFsource facebook images show that the colours are nowhere near as washed out. Looks pretty damn cool.

What the SCRAP?!?!? Where was this kind of engineering when they first came out? And is it just me, or are third party companies doing a better job than the actual manufacturers? Time to step up your games here people.

Way better than i had imagined..I'm glad they went for a kind of toned down green..Looks great...may have to sneak this one in under the Gf's radar :-$

Meh, the yellow is a little too lemony fresh for me. Kinda pokes the eye. I was hoping for a sort of dulled blaze orange.

Perhaps this has something to do with the die-cast construction? :-?
