    As a high ranking general in Galvatron’s army (See Transformers Animated Season 5:) ) , Sandstorm provides leadership to a small team of Decepticons suited for guerilla tactics and planets with hostile environments (The Preds).

    Her alt mode is one of a desert spider, but witnesses report a third flight mode, but this remains unconfirmed. In robot mode, Sandstorm uses twin web bombs to ensnare enemies to slowly drain them of their energy.

    At times, she tests Galvatron’s patience by going off on her own and ignoring his status request texts, but in the end, her results speak for themselves. Her ambition pays off, and in a short time is 3rd in command of the Decepticons, subordinate only to Starscream,& Galvatron himself.

    However, behind a façade of loyalty, she works behind the scenes, building secret alliances to create an insurgency to overthrow Galvatron’s regime and take control of the government. But is there more to Sandstorm than meets the eye?

    What he said. The colours work beautifully, and the paintjob is incredibly smooth. When I saw the thumbnail, I initially thought she was going to be a version of the 3H Scorponok redeco, but I really like the bio you've given her.

    What's this flight mode of which you speak?

    So, is this meant to be G1 Sandstorm in Animated, or completely different?

    Anyways, paint work is great, though I'd mod the head so it looks less like BA. Oh, and give us the flight mode already!!!

    Thanks everyone...

    The character is based on the personality/history of the botcon Scorponok recolor, but with a dash of G1, in the Animated tradition. Even had a "Cyber-Bee" component to her, made from her grappling hook...which of course...I lost.

    The end of her story is that she is actually infiltrating the Decepticon government as part of the Autobot insurgency. However, when she takes out Galvatron, she is made the de facto leader of the Decepticons, and doesn't necessarily want to give up that power.

    Excellent as always :)  You pick the perfect hue and your bio gives the character life.
