Looks to just be a repaint of Springer though - will it work? I might have to keep Warbot:Defender as my Springer now to differentiate them.

Sweetie, it's a fake. It's a digi-bash, it even has the watermark still intact. Here it is:

I knew having the original news thread removed was a bad idea...
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Ha ha, oh yes. I guess it could kind of work if it was to happen and I certainly wouldn't put it past Hasbro!

Chances are pretty great he will he a Springer retool, but with VTOL fans instead of Springer's rotors, if his cameo on Metroplex' art is anything to go by.

Not sure why we decided to delete the thread, in the end. :-?

Yeah, the thread could've been kept and simply updated with a 'not-legit' disclaimer.

Glad it wasn't for real.

I hope that Sandstorm doesn't become a simple retool of Springer. I know it will make a lot of people happy and Sandstorm will get some long overdue attention. Ideally, I would like Sandstorm to be a different transformation all together.
