That's what I was going for. ;)

But seriously, as a military enthusiast, Hasbro can't make this any better, it's so gorgeous. =P~

Robot mode looks like it'll be incredibly backheavy, but the whole package looks great.

Am I the only one thinking this awesome Sandstorm could be repainted into an even better Skyhammer?

He's obscure enough that it'd probably come from FunPub rather than Hasbro, but with the original Ultra Pretender toys falling victim to gold-plastic-syndrome, he could use a sturdy update.

That'd...actually work. It'd feel like they were milking the mold a bit too much (if it was a retail release), but I digress; incredible idea.

Im not liking it. I look forward for a 3rd party add on kit to turn it into a more G1 helicopter.

This HAS to be one of the best retools hasbro has done in a while. I really like the VTOL idea, and how it translates in the dune buggy mode, those giant rear wheels are bad ass.

Wow, this is totally better than that fanmode i managed to cludge out of Springer.....

I didn't think this mold could have made me admire it more than i already do. THis is a fantastic remold and it, like Springer and Blitzwing, will be bought on sight :D

I'm starting to think that Sandstorm was the original mold and Springer's the remold. This is such an extensively changed figure, but you can see where some things seem to fit the visuals and design better. Like this was almost intended.

That's not a diss to Springer. I'm thinking they released Springer first to get sales going.

Either way, however it worked, absolutely impressive figure. Dang.

The fact a detailed artwork appeared on metropoex's box might lend support to your theory that this was the original mould. I'm sure there'll be 3rd party 4 blade rotors but I appreciate the change they made.
The fact 2 out of the 3 triple changers had the same alt moulds irked me as a kid and was probably one of the reasons I never tried too hard to get springer.

At least the decepticons had more variety
