    Not entirely sure if this qualifies as news, but Nick Roche has put up a concept art image of Sandstorm on his Twitter (@NickRoche) to be used as a design basis for the Generations voyager class figure. Here's the image mirrored..

    Hasbro did. It comes with the toy.

    It really is pretty cool seeing just how much of this design is in the final toy despite engineering changes, like the wheels on the legs becoming fake wheel detailing.

    I designed Sandstorm for Hasbro back in 2010, so I think Springer was reverse-engineered from these images. Mad!
    Don't forget that it seems that Springer was based off these images, instead of the other way around. It's crazy how well this turned out for both characters.

    Very nice, though I would have preferred the face masked version from LSOTW
