|05.14.2013 – Thanks to TFPH member Richard Besana who shared an image of Sandstorm’s VTOL mode that was left a mystery in the previous revelation when the figure’s product photo appeared in the Transformers official Facebook page. This was immediately removed then re-posted again official yesterday.
Now it’s shows how heavily Sandstorm was a retool/redeco of Voyager Class Springer that was recently available on retail along with Blitzwing.
Some details about the VTOL mode dates back to the revelation of Generations Metroplex product box with the art during New York Toy Fair.

|05.13.2013 – Its four months away before Titan Class Metroplex reaches retail stores. Previously images from Takara Tomy’s TF Yuki and the images from Hasbro that was reported other has been quite raising some question about the colors and quality of the figure including the actual size.
There were already some disappointments when Takara Tomy revealed to be bringing the figure out with two of Metroplex’s signature rifles while Hasbro is providing only one. But no matter the sheer size of this figure still haunts Fortres Maxmimus owners that it won’t be the biggest Transformers once this comes out.

|05.12.2013 – The Transformers 30th Anniversary Edition toys has finally reached the Philippines and it’s been out for the past two weeks.
Most notable figures in the assortment are the Voyager Class Triple Changes in Blitzwing and Springer.
Previously the Classics line has produced Deluxe Class Astrotrain (2006) and Universe Tankor who used to have an original name as Octane. This leaves Broadside and Sandstorm not having modern versions of their figure…
Well until Seibetron.com has reported this breaking news…

|05.10.2013 – It’s been three months since Hasbro unveiled the biggest Transformers ever to celebrate “Thrilling 30” years of the brand.
There has been teaser images and size comparisons to the vintage version.
So you have to wait until it drops on you in September and yet you get anticipated for its arrival. There were pre-orders in local sellers that assurance of its arrival will be there. But for now everyone has to do with more teaser images that’s floating around for the past months and who would agree with that?

Presenting the Voyager Class Predaking, leader of the Predacons from the new Transformers Beast Hunters series.
Predaking's wiki actually has a quote from him going "My armour is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail is a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!"
Too bad Ultra Magnus kicked his butt and he had to retreat without having killed Wheeljack and all he could do was growl when Starscream made a snide comment about his failure.
Quite an inglorious debut for, as Shockwave put it, "The Ultimate Autobot Hunter"
Though I suppose Predaking did kick Optimus Prime's butt so badly that the Hammer wielding Ultra Magnus had to be introduced. (I swear if they use this to introduce a Rodimus Prime, someone will die).
