Adventures in Toy Shopping: Transformers Generations Deluxe Class Springer

1 12 2012

Springer is one of my favorite characters to come out of  the original Transformers Animated movie. He had bulky heavy hitter design, a triple-changer, and carried a huge sword.  I’ve been waiting years for Hasbro to release a modern version of this classic hero. Unfortunately, we get this deluxe class repaint and remold of the Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk.

Helicopter mode is cool. It’s a shame that character such as Springer would get a small deluxe class figure. He should have been Voyager class size.

In robot mode, the design is very nice. As I mentioned before, Springer had a bulky warrior design when he 1st debuted, this version he sports a very lean body which is just odd.

He comes with sword but its really tiny. It should be long like the long sword that came with Drift.

I do enjoy the right arm blade that can open like a scissor.

Note the length of the missile projectiles that plug into his launchers. In tail area of them, they seem like a waste of plastic and really don’t help the look of the figure.

He scales equally with other Deluxe Class figures. Wouldn’t he look better with if he had just a little bigger head sculpt and it was plugged onto Drift’s body mold?

Overall, this figure really doesn’t capture the classic feel of Springer. I was really excited at 1st to pick this up but I feel like this is waste of money. I highly doubt we’ll see an original modern mold of Springer by Hasbro anytime soon. G1 fans stay away.
