Springer
Strength is more than just physical.

Springer is a wise-cracking, easy-going, sharp-witted and somewhat caustic fighting Autobot. He has an unfailing optimism, good humor, and courage beyond known bounds, and with it the willingness to sacrifice himself for his friends and the sake of his mission. Springer has an incredible springing power, enabling him to leap great distances by using the strength in his mighty legs. His physique is heavily powerful, his chest massive, his arms enormous and well-proportioned like the most dedicated body-builder. When he transforms, his automotive mode is super-powerful, with the attributes of both battle tank and speedcar combined. In robot mode, he carries a laser that produces giant wind funnels. His helicopter blade transforms into a light saber that can cut through 2 foot concrete effortlessly.

History

Canonical/Pre-MUX/Theme History:

During the Ark crew's four-million-year sleep, Springer was active on Cybertron as one of the Wreckers, as well as running side-missions for Ultra Magnus.

MUX History:

Springer2

Helicopter Alt mode

Springer is usually based on Cybertron as one of the Wreckers. However, he returned to Earth on April 22, 2013 to assist in EDC's first "official" covert mission, which involved freeing celebrated human rights activist Anwar Assan from his captors in Trucial Abysmia. Springer was able to disable Cobra Commander's HISS and serve as an evac chopper for Assan and the human members of the EDC.

In 2015 he was part of the crew on the ill-fated maiden voyage of the Spirit of Freedom.

Later in 2015 the Decepticons re-activated Internment Camp Pi and started kidnapping Praxus citizens, Autobot and neutral alike, to work in the mines. One of those captured was Dust Devil, and Springer allowed himself to be captured in order to gather intelligence on the camp.

In 2017 he helped defend Iacon against an assault by Trypticon.

OOC Notes

Springer is CO of the Wreckers. Roadbuster is his XO.

What-If Universe

Cobra World 

When Springer came to Earth to try to free his enslaved Autobot compatriots, he took the forms of a Ground Assault and Swampfire, and attempted to infiltrate the Dreadnoks.

Decepticon World 

After the Decepticons overtook the Autobots' main base and the death of Ultra Magnus, Springer issued a direct challenge to Bumblebee's leadership, imploring the gathered Autobots vote "no confidence" in Bumblebee's leadership and install Springer as interim leader. He vowed to begin using Decepticon tactics and begin a campaign to instill terror in the Decepticons' psyche by conducting small, but deadly raids. While he had the support of the senior Autobot leader Hot Spot, Springer's initiative ultimately failed (263 voted "No Confidence", 327 voted against). Despite losing, Springer vowed to support Bumblebee and ordered all of his followers to follow his lead. In a gesture of solidarity, Bumblebee promoted Springer to City Commander, the position held by the deceased Ultra Magnus.
