"The reason why i give 2 stars"
Perhaps one of top ten favorite G1 transformers of all time along with his distinct personality adjoins his spectacular three transformation makes him one of my favorites... Thanks to Engineer who smoked some meth making a complete train wreck of qc issues on Blitzwing has taken the fun out of it for me. I had to buy a second Blitzwing because the panels on his "chest" were too small to latch on too, also the damn trunk of Blitzwing is too damn thick...Word advice you have to sand both sides down a few millimeters to get the shoulders to lock into place. Warning sand too far down you have to buy another Blitzwing...Honestly they should do a call back on Blitzwing altogether and get this figured out...I forgot bug business does not believe in honesty anymore, just be skeptical of buying anything anniversary on Hasbro from this day forth.
Forget the fansproject version of springer this springer is way better looking, taller and sturdier. Also the little bonus they added to this figure makes it most have to all collectors. I bought Blitzwing and springer together. At least springer is a knock out and Blitzwing is total buzz kill.
"Sweet and Sour triple changers..."
to start with...the sweet. Springer is so near to perfect that the only way he could be better is Masterpiece Springer. I have extremely fond memories of the original Springer toy, I have him in storage, and he just looks neat... this is SO MUCH BETTER. articulation, 10 out of 10, transformation, 8 out of 10. the copter mode is a little weak in my opinion. the copter blade into sword tho, is fan(wait for it)TASTIC! cannon is iffy for me, but I am not a fan of missile firing weapons.
now the sour-ish: Blitzwing is about 80% good engineering-an d by 80%, I mean everything from his feet to about right below his shoulders. from the shoulders on up, we have good ideas not well executed; the shoulders do not lock well into place without help, and while I haevr never changed the face changing gimmick...there are stories( I like the G1 face) surprisingly after my comment about missile firing weapons, his cannon is just fine with me. there are several shoulder fixes out there, and I used a variation of one on mine to make him "lovable" and not cause me pain and frustration with non-locking shoulders
Springer- 9 out of 10 overall
Blitzwing 6.5 out of 10
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
