Springer (triple changer)
Springer is a triple changer from Transformers Cartoon series. He transforms into a futuristic helicopter and a sleek battletank too!
About this creation








Introduction


Triple changers are one of my favorite types of G1 transformers (or
recent ones). Its fun trying to figure how a robot can transform into
two alternate mode, and display a distinctiveness and uniqueness of each
mode.


Springer is yet another desired toy of mine back in the 80s that I
never get to acquire. Thanks to a recent exoforce set, I am able to
finally create him! Yes, glorious green slope parts are sourced from
that exoforce set. (start guessing fellow lego fans!)


This time around, the challenge I am "forcing" myself to accept, is
to keep his rotor intact all the way to his battletank mode. This means
it needn't be dismantled and connected somewhere else
mid-transformation.


In the original Springer, his rotor blades turns into a sword. I
attempted that but I'm not satisfied with it, let's just say the blades
is not "sharp" enough to my liking. Later on, you';ll know where these
blades ended up as =)


One of Springer's distinctive feature are his square cheek with
another hollowed square hole. It resemble an underside of a LEGO 1 x 1
brick!

Quoting Anonymous Anonymous If you can make springer, why not magmatron? If you need reference,http://www.tfu.info/1999/Destron/Magmatron/magmatron.htm challenge:Use only bionicle piraka sets white and blue
Bought the actual toy once... transformation made me shed tears. Combiners are hard to built with good articulation.

Unbelievable! I'm impressed enough by Lego built transformers with two modes but three?! Good choice building Springer, he's always been one of my favs as well. Especially nice work on the head- instantly recognizable!
