    Sandstorm-The "Desert Warrior"

    Faction: Decepticon/Wrecker

    Function: Covert OPs Commander/Reconnaissance/"Search and Destroy"

    Alternate Mode - MI-24V Hind (Crocodile) Russian-based Attack Helicopter.


    Sandstorm originally came to Earth along with his other partners of the Wreckers team in search of the enemies lookouts and to destroy them. Sandstorm and his team emblaze themselves with Decepticon faction emblems to blend in with other Decepticons to find thier bases and strike them in surprise attacks. While Optimus Prime and his unit were battling Decepticon forces in Egypt, the Wreckers team were fighting nearby in a different country looking for Decepticons as military units. Sandstorm is an elite spy, a heavy war fighter, a fast flier, and an intelligent member. He is adept in middle range combat armed with his twin large cybertronian gatling guns, rockets, and close combat with his rotor blade weapons. Armed to the teeth, his weapons can shred a Decepticon in half from far away and not many Decepticons live to warn of thier existence. Sandstorm hopes to finish the war with the Decepticons and wear his Autobot emblem again with his fellow comrades.

    I hope you guys like this style and thanks for viewing. It was a pleasure to join in this contest with other artisans. (Art was created by using Photoshop, Sketchup, paper, and artpad.) I mainly designed to make sure this can be made into a model/toy that can transform without major sacrifices to the design.

    lol I was going to make him a triple changer, but in the real world, some vehicles don't have much parts to make another vehicle unless its really big. After researching most of Sandstorm toys were not triple changers and that lead me to the decision of keeping him in one mode.

    I am planning to do mostly aerial bots/wreckers as a side thing so stay tuned! I'll be working on the Wreckers, including Springer, plus other aerialbots like AirRazor and Waspinator.



    And to everyone so far, thanks for the comments and glad you guys like my work!

    lol I think everyone is really polishing their works as the deadline is getting near. I'm working on more art of Sandstorm to have him compete with other guys, but I think what comes down to people voting is the popularity of the original character, the design, color, volume/mass, and plenty artwork. Honestly, I'm happy so far, but lets do our best man, your Grimlock is by far the best Grimlock here! :D .

    I just love the face, It is badass, very original yet still movie-esque. Its says "Im going to rape you!". Kudos on this guy, its realistic and advanced enough to be a movie TF, while still retaining your own unique style. reminds me of the transformers/G.I. Joe WWII comic. Excellent work!
