New Bots: Behind The Scene
Sandstorm and Octone (previously Octane) are the third pair of Triple Changers to appear in Transformers: Earth Wars!

Did you know that Sandstorm and Octone appeared together in the episode named “Thief of the Night” of the G1 cartoon? In this episode, Octone gets ousted from the Decepticons after he selfishly tries to keep Trypticon and precious Energon to himself.

It’s only in the later episode “Starscream's Ghost” that they actually appear side by side as Octone is seeking Sandstorm’s protection from a squad of Decepticons chasing him. As they took a stroll in the forest, they would demonstrate their Triple Changer nature by transforming into their respective flying and ground vehicle forms.

Below you’ll find what we call a “paintover” - a detailed digital drawing that shows our initial concept for the three forms of these characters.

Sandstorm’s design, with two propellers attached to his shoulders, is inspired by the fourth wave of 2012-2013 Generations Voyager Class toys. They are used to propel the VTOL aircraft and are the two back wheels in his dune buggy form.

Octone’s design has a real G1 flavor when it comes to the bot form. His ground vehicle form (a fuel tanker) and his flying vehicle form (a heavy cargo plane) are inspired by the toy from the Universe Deluxe Class line.

Stay tuned for more details!
