Don't let his small size fool you, Forthcoming Dark Of The Moon figure Sandstorm is a double-whammy of gimmickery. Not only is he a Human Alliance figure but he's a triple changer too! Thanks to HK-TF we get to see high resolution pictures of his robot, buggy and weapon placement modes, together with Private Dedcliff.

I'm not sure if I'll get any of these things, but these pictures really do him justice.

Man, all these pics of future releases are coming out the wazoo this evening.

I was sold on him before, now it's even more so. I didn't know he could be held by a larger robot like that.

It's about time we had an actual G1 Sandstorm update. Not just weird buggies every so often. And what's with that evil-looking head?

Other than that he's pretty cool.

The head sculpt reminds me of Ironhide. Maybe this is Bronzehide or Copperhide.

That would make a good swindle repaint.

Why did they have to name it Sandstorm? He's not a triplechanger and looks nothing like the G1 Sandstorm.
The two have no correlation other than the name and the alt mode is a buggy.

He does look pretty decent though. A little busy on the detail in bot mode for me but good figure nevertheless.

Just don't think he's any homage to G1....... because he's not.

I agree with you except that...yes he is a triple changer.

Ok so Sandstorm and Skyhammer are top two on my very small Dark of the Moon shopping list.

G1 Sandstorm was a dune buggy. This guy's a dune buggy.

Hey it's Hasbro's way of thinking not mine!

looks awesome, the paint aps are a bit meh but the figure itself is great. Maybe we'll get a beachcomber repaint/remold down the road. Needs to lose the meatbag though. I think the HA and cyberverse are the best thing to be coming out of DOTM.

That human is shit i cant stand to look at him, The robot looks well good but Ben 10 comes to mind and the buggy reminds me of toy story a bit. I'll still pick him up.

A superb looking lil figure and I hope to see many, many more HA's of this class size. Not keen on the battle station mode but the buggy and robot both look very good.

I love everything about this. I'm especially impressed that neither the alt mode nor the robot mode have suffered to accommodate the "gimmicks" (which are more than just gimmicks IMO). OK, so the 3rd mode isn't great, but who cares? Since the other two modes don't suffer for it, you can forget that 3rd mode even exists and it's STILL a great toy - a great transformer with a cool alt mode, a cool bot mode, the ability to accommodate a human figure, and a bit of G.I. Joe flavor thrown in for good measure.

I'm really excited about this figure and hope to see more like it.
