This question is like way late but you guys remember 07 movie vortex well in the begining of the rotf line there was a legends springer figure whos alt mode was the same as vortex and the transformation was very silmilar

My question is was springer a use of vortexs unreleased legends mold or was it just coincidence

There was no Vortex in the Movie 1 toyline. You're thinking of Incinerator.

As for Springer's toy, his design was not based on Incinerator. Rather, they both just use the typical transformation for Osprey TF toys. Armada Makeshift's mold does the same trick of putting the rotors on the wrists and the cockpit on the torso.

However, artist Ben Proctor did designed Springer for use in the ROTF movie, but the design ultimately went unused. However, the design for Spinger went on this inspire both Alex Milne's design for Incinerator in the Alliance comics, and the design of ROTF Blazemaster's toy.

I have him, he's not bad. If anything I enjoy the complex transformation. My only complaint is the rotors in robot mode never end up the way they should or even symmetrical. They, to my understanding, should both point up, but the arm with the gimmick has it drooping due to the sheer design. You can't even make it symmetrical since you can't bring the other rotor down: too little clearance.
