Default Which Classics Springer is better?

So, we're about to get a second Classics Springer, both being repaints from Cybertron.

So, which is better?

As in, which is a better tribute? Which is a better toy? Why?

Number 3 for sure.

The easiest Tripple changer there is to make a new mould for, and Hasbro can't do it, instead they release lame recolours.

I went w/ Universe Springer. The reason being that it's more recognisably Springer in terms of his helicopter mode. The rotor blades can double up as a "sword" of sorts. But the rescue motif really does not work. It lacks that futuristic feel. The head doesn't channel springer really but neither does the other one.

That brings me to Botcon 2007 which is armed to the teeth and seems more aggressive like the character. However against it is the tank mode which isn't exactly a futuristic car. I do like Botcon 2007 cos it looks nice but I voted Classics 2.0 Springer b/c I like larger figures and I love that Evac mold. So yeah, i'm biased but Evac is an awesome toy and w/ a few additional weapons, i'm sure we'll have a kickass looking springer.

Universe FTW, Springer was barely a triple changer anyway.
Robot to Helicopter, to helicopter without a rotor.

I'm sorry, a tribute to a tripple changer needs to be a tripple changer.
