"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.
Springer was a follower of Ultra Magnus until that commander was imprisoned for treason. Springer quickly switched allegiances to Optimus Prime, and was re-assigned to Remote Patrol Six, to Kup's disgust.
When the Remote Patrol Six encountered the Junkion pirate ship V'ger in orbit around Cybertron in 2012, it fired on the V'ger, disabling it, and then sent in a boarding party. Met with heavy resistance by the Autobots and Decepticon aboard, however, the RP6 was forced to retreat.
