Bleh, he's all out of whack just like their Blitzwing. This is a very, very rare case where I might wait to see if the XTB guy does one. Then wait on a second run, since it's KFC and the quality will be garbage.
They still have yet to establish a pattern, but word of mouth is that the test-runs of all the upcoming KFC products are a step-up quality-wise right out of the gate. So might not have to be that patient.
I'm certainly hoping that's the case, because their Blitzwing is looking to be the best of the bunch. FansToys' is a close second, but theirs does this weird thing of changing his jet mode into more of a pseudo-F-15. Plus theirs is still in design phase and is probably at least a year out. KFC Blitzwing hews closer to the animation model in all three modes, and thus does a better job of looking like Blitzwing.
KFC's Octane also looks to be shaping up nicely. A little rough in jet mode (mostly just the tail), but I don't expect perfect alt-modes in Triple Changers, and the figure certainly looks close.
Anyhoo, proportions on this Springer look ever so slightly off in all his modes that so far, without revisions, this is looking like a no-go. Fat chest is inexplicable because it enables accuracy to no form. "Car" mode is also too long, so looks wrong even by Springer's goofy car mode standards.
 Here's a Photoshop from TFW that illustrates and fixes a number of problems with the design. If Fans Toys could manage to modify their design to be more in line with that, then a buy from me would be far more likely. As is, he's really suffering from "3P block-bot syndrome". Unfortunately, that's kinda the way FT rolls. I mean, look at Quakewave. Practically erased all the sweeping curves from his boots. Their Reflector is also the most hard-edged and rectangular looking of the three available MP-alike offerings. I'm honestly surprised that their Insecticons made it through with at least some subtle flaring in their limbs. Although maybe that's just because they had good source material to work with. The G1 Insecticon toys were some of the most "dynamic" looking of their era.
