Springer transforms into a Grey with yellow and green highlights attack Helicopter with a rotating camera under its cockpit. The Heli comes with missile launchers that mount under it's wings. While there is a sword with the figure it looks funky on the vehicle so I tend to leave it off.
Ok first off the mold has a New head to represent I guess G1 Springer:
As for his articulation I have to say this figure impressed me when it was first released and does that now. The mold has ball jointed head, arms and hips which allows for some very nice poses. Here are some Pics by my son Sam to show off a few.
Springer comes with a pair of missile launchers and a sword. The missile launchers can be place on the back of the vehicle using their C-Joint connectors. Or in his hands using the pegs used to connect them to the bottom of the wings. Now as for the Sword. While nice to look at in robot mode, which connects it to G1 springer I guess, it makes no sense in vehicle mode. No where would you see a Helicopter with a huge Sword hanging on its side.
What to say what to say. The figure is cool it really is. But it has its issues like the chicken feet and the Sword. While I am a huge fan of updated G1 figures I am not all too convinced on this one. I am hoping that Hasbro makes an actual triple changer mold for this character. I think the Fans project figure is still a better off figure to use as a classics/Generations portrayal of Springer. If you are like me where you must have all the tfs out there, An illness called Pokemonoitis I am told, it is a must have. But then again it might be the illness speaking there. For folks who have no such illness I say pass it. While cool it is not an improvement over the other recolored molds of Springer.
