Overcharge
Bludgeon
Slamdance
Gutcruncher
Reverse Convoy
Doubledealer (requires extensive retooling)


I would love to see a Slamdance retool out of Blitzwing. But thinking more about it, they could also make Overlord out of him. Probably not everyone's first choice for this mold, but it might happen given Overlords recent appearances in the comics.

I've picked up Springer and Blitzwing both and just love these guys in every form, but with Sand Storm, i like the bot and VTOL mode, not much on his buggy mode, but either way im still buying it!

I wonder if hasbro can do Astro-Train and Octane like these guys?

No thank you. That robot mode of Blitzwing's would hardly do Overlord proper justice.

Looks pretty sexy. Takara's is up for preorder so I snagged it but it's not due until December, so I've got a long wait ahead.

Just picked up all three together on the Navy Base in San Diego. It was a bit surprising to see something so current on the shelves there. Therefor, in light of the ultra limited selection that we do receive on the base, I picked them "All" up. There were two of each, so I purchased a set of three for my nephew as well. Sandstorm became the favorite of the three as soon as I saw him. He looks awesome.

Those back wheels look way too big, but I guess that's so the VTOL turbines look good, which is my preferred mode anyway.

I kinda wish they went with the more toy-accurate mouthplate rather than the cartoon-accurate regular face.

The lack of Breakdown might not have had anything to do with the amount of plastic. The only official reasons we got for him being skipped were "not up to Hsbro's standards" and "no-man's land price-wise"... which are ridiculously vague and could mean anything.

That's great seeing them together. The untrained eye wouldn't even be able to tell they're the same(ish) mold. Those giant rear wheels are starting to look a bit daft in buggy mode.

Then there's the delusion/myth/fact (take your pick) that TakaraTomy's stuff is superior to Hasbro. Me, I don't care.

sometimes Takara's stuff is better. sometimes I like the Hasbro stuff more. Sometimes the difference is minor enough that I prefer to choose the cheaper option.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

By way of HK-TF's oscarfung we have nice a series of images showcasing Transformers Generations Voyager Class Sandstorm. Sandstorm is a heavily retooled and repainted version of the previously released Transformers Generations Voyager Class Springer. The retool give's the figure a new head, new larger rear tires for a more dune buggy look that fold out to become rotors in his VTOL mode, and more. Check out the images mirrored below.

Not gunna lie, it looks really cool. But my sights are on Springer right now, and I like to keep teams even, so unless they come up with an equally-sized Decepticon counterpart (Flywheels from Blitzwing, anyone?), it's gunna have to be a pass.

Nice looking figure, and I think maybe his alt modes are a smidge more convinving than Springer. Sadly for me it isn't Sandstorm. I really loved my G1 Sandstorm when I had him for Christmas, and this doesn't quite fit what I'd like for a modern fig of him. A fine looking Autobot though, regardless ;)
Has Sandstorm had any kind of more recent comic version that this could possibly be closer to?

If anything, he'll appear in that form in the IDW comics just to sell toys. 8-}

And cool, the fans rotate! Loving him more and more.

Not that I know of. The closest thing I could find that (barely) resembles this Voyager is this:

The little backpack and maybe a bit of the torso look similar, but that's about it.
