Hero Overview
Sandstorm G1.png

Sandstorm is an Autobot Triple Changer with three modes: robot, dune buggy and helicopter. He is a character who appears in season 3 of the Transformers G1 cartoon, as a native of the peaceful planet Paradon. 

Sandstorm had a very different role in Marvel's Transformers comics, in which he appeared in the UK stories as a member of the Wreckers, due to his love of living on the edge.

History

Sandstorm had a notable role in the third season episodes "Fight or Flee" as the progressive leader of a tribe of peaceful Autobots, and "Starscream's Ghost" acting as an ally to Octane, who had deserted the Decepticon because of personal trouble with Galvatron.

Sandstorm was an Autobot among those Autobots who peacefully settled the planet Paradron as the Mayor. Outnumbered and fleeing from the Aerialbots, Cyclonus and Scourge took refuge inside a vortex, which transported them to the pacifistic, energy-rich planet of Paradron, which had been settled by Cybertronian refugees. Naturally, the duo immediately overthrew the planet and summoned Galvatron and the other Decepticons there; the plan was ultimately foiled by the Autobots, but at the cost of Paradron itself, which was destroyed.

During his desertion, the Decepticon Triple Changer Octane collaborated with Sandstorm to avoid capture.

Target 2006

Sandstorm was assigned to the Wreckers by Emirate Xaaron to assist with Operation Volcano, along with fellow Triple Changers Springer and Broadside, after Ultra Magnus was sent to Earth. They proved their credentials by attacking Wrecker leader Impactor posing as Decepticons. However, the operation was a disaster: Not only were almost all the Decepticons they were targetting recalled before the Wreckers could spring their ambush, but Impactor was killed by the sole Decepticon straggler Macabre.

Working with Optimus Prime

The Autobots then received intelligence that the Decepticons were sending a spy disguised as legendary Autobot leader Optimus Prime. Unaware this was misinformation spread by Megatron and Straxus, Sandstorm and the other Wreckers, under Ultra Magnus' command, captured Optimus Prime on his return to Cybertron and prepared to execute him as an imposter. They were stopped by Outback and accepted Optimus Prime as genuine after Emirate Xaaron vouched for him. Sandstorm and the others ran a number of missions under Optimus Prime's command, disrupting local Decepticon operations, before Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus both returned to Earth.

Sandstorm was later seen among the Earth Autobots, welcoming Blaster back to the Ark. No explanation was given for his presence, so it is generally considered a mistake.

Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge

Having heard that future Decepticon leader Galvatron was loose on Earth, Sandstorm and the other Wreckers travelled there by space bridge to confront him. The mission was a failure however, as not only was Galvatron backed up by Cyclonus and Scourge but they arrived in the middle of a heavily-populated human settlement. As the battle raged around him, Sandstorm tried to usher the humans to safety. Springer managed to lure Cyclonus and Scourge away from the city, and Sandstorm and the others followed to protect him from their wrath, even though it meant letting Galvatron escape.

Legion of the Lost

A series of tremors and the appearance of a group of zombified Transformers were the first indications of a plan by insane Autobot scientist Flame to trigger an engine at the heart of Cybertron, unaware it would destroy the planet. Sandstorm, the other Wreckers and Emirate Xaaron were captured by Flame but managed to escape and join up with first Ultra Magnus and the Sparkabots and then Decepticons Flywheels and Trypticon. Together, they defeated Flame's army, while Flame's reactor was shut down in an act of self-sacrifice by the zombified Impactor.

Earth duty

Following the failure of their first mission against Galvatron, Sandstorm, Broadside and Inferno were sent to Earth to act as a monitoring team, for a further attempt. Shortly after arrival, they protected a human settlement from a Funacian Firebug, which they sent to the planet Mercury. They were less successful in their attempt to join a town's Christmas celebrations, sending the humans into a panic and causing damage, as well as incurring the wrath of the Autobot Powermasters, who mistook them for Decepticons, before Optimus Prime arrived to restore order.

Time Wars

Having located Galvatron, the trio alerted the local Autobots before going to greet Springer as he arrived from Cybertron with reinforcements: Not only the other Wreckers, but also the Decepticon Mayhem Squad. The new arrivals went into Galvatron's base first but were soon heavily outgunned, as it turned out Galvatron was backed up by Megatron, along with Scourge and Ravage. After suffering initial casualties, the group attempted to retreat, but as they headed for their ship, Sandstorm was killed by a full blast from Galvatron.
