In-Package Images: Transformers Generations Voyager Sandstorm

Postby El Duque » Thu Jun 13, 2013 8:27 pm

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted a series of in-package images of Transformers Generations Voyager Sandstorm, a heavily (and awesomely) retooled and repainted version of the previously released Voyager Springer. Even better they have sealed cases of Hasbro Transformers Generations Voyager Wave 4 featuring this guy in stock and ready to ship!

SANDSTORM lives for action. His only real fear is a fear of boredom. As a result, he takes unnecessary risks, both in combat and out - risks that can sometimes threaten the success of his missions. He lives fast, loud, and dangerously - traits that make him fun to hang out with most of the time. But his fellow AUTOBOTS are getting a little sick of his habit of giving away his position to the DECEPTICONS just so he has the opportunity to enjoy a fight.

Hasbro Transformers Generations 2013 Voyager Wave 4 Sealed case of 4.
USD119.9
Available NOW!

Four per case, eh? guess that means we're a ways out for Blitzy's eventual repaint. Can't wait to not see this guy in stores!

4 per has always been the Voyager case breakdown.
Unless you're talking about there being 4x Sandstorms per case, which is incorrect.

2x Sandstorm
1x of Blitzwing and Springer

I'd say the next case assortment would have a Blitzwing redeco, if we get one.

That's an interesting biography given Sandstorms goody-goody personality from the G1 animation.

I can't wait to get this figure. As always the only thing that'll probably stop me getting this will be Takara's version.

I will have to decide when I see him in person if he is worth picking up. Packaging and pictures only sell me on so much, I wasnt sure on springer until I saw him in my hands.

The Springer mold is really awesome, so this is a must-buy for me. They'll look awesome displayed together.

Who could they repaint Blitzwing as? Who else has a tank and jet mode?

Maybe they could paint him purple, white and mint green and call it "Three Shot". ;)

From the facebook of Hobbybase we have our first in-hand image of Transformers Generations Voyager Sandstorm! It's starting to look like this guy might be showing up at brick and mortar retail very soon. Take a look below.

Update: More images from site sponsor Robotkingdom.

I was lucky to find Springer. That was the only time I saw him in stores. Never found a Blitzwing.

I just ordered Springer and Blitzwing from Amazon. Stores never have anything.

I'm impressed with the amount of re-tooling they did. When was the last time Hasbro put that much effort into re-tooling a mold? Usually we only see a head swap, and maybe a spoiler added or removed.

This one has huge back wheels added, the rotor removed, a new weapon, a front grill/bumper added, the legs retooled to account for the replacement of the rear wheels, AND a new head sculpt. Oh, and the tail was re-tooled too!

I love the Blitzwing and Springer figures. And yah, stores never had these when I looked. Got both off amazon. Sandstorm looks like the best figure of the lot. Love triple changers.

so seeing what they've done with Springer, I wonder who Blitzwing is gonna get retooled into, and how extensive are the retools gonna be? some potential candidates I've stumbled across have been.....
Overcharge
Bludgeon
Slamdance
Gutcruncher
Reverse Convoy
Doubledealer (requires extensive retooling)
SG Roadbuster

It is truly impressive how extensive the remolding is. It actually looks like a substantial amount of plastic has been added. Which still makes me wonder why they couldn't release TF Prime Breakdown, but I should really stop being so bitter about that, lol...

Anyway, Sandstorm is really impressive and near-perfect. Only issue I can see is that those wheel/turbine assemblies are going to take up a lot of shelf space in robot mode, but it looks like it's possible to fold them back and down.
