Here's a digibash I created during this year's ToyFair insanity, all the Hasbro reveals and new official pics are a goldmine for digibashing! As I imagine a whole lot of other people have done, I turned Generations Springer into FOC Sandstorm post haste!

This looks way better than the real version coming out. The colors and headsculpt are very nice. I wish this was the official one!

Thanks for the kind words! I'm really excited for the official version, but I hope one of the Shapeways parts makers puts out a masked version of the head, I much prefer that to him having a face like his cartoon version.

Haha, I was glad to see that we will definitely be getting Sandstorm! I love the remolding Hasbro did, my only issue is that I prefer his toy masked face to the cartoon version they went with. Not a deal breaker at all though, I've already got him preordered with BigBadToystore :)

Thanks very much for this piece, Giga-Bash. I'm a big fan of this mold, and a red (or even reddish-orange) version would be a dream come true.

Til then, I'm happy to have your bash among my faves!

Thanks! I haven't been able to get this guy in hand yet, but I'm hearing nothing but good things! I know Hasbro's making an official remold/recolor of Springer into Sandstorm (Huzzah!) but I would actually love to see this guy released in a few more color schemes, it'd be a shame not to use such a well done mold as much as you can.

You don't have? Are there just not any in your area? If you get desperate, send me a note. I'm happy to middleman for fellow toyfans, and I don't charge more than price+postage.

Yeah the area I'm in is really hit or miss (mostly miss) for newer product, so I don't expect to start seeing the triple changers on shelves until mid-June if I'm lucky. I've got them on pre-order from BigBadToystore, but many thanks for the offer :)

Were they? I'm flattered and amused!

have you seen the official Sandstorm. It's looking pretty slick. ;)

I have, and I love it! The new color layout is quite nice, and I'm thrilled to see the amount of remolding they were able to do. I've got him on pre-order and can't wait for him to adorn my collection. The only thing I'm not a big fan of it the animation modeled head, as I'm a big fan of the masked toy version. A minor nitpick though, and I figure someone will probably make a more toy accurate head for Shapeways soon after he's released.

I agree. I'm a fan of both the animation and toy heads.

I just noticed this too, lol. TFW2005 was announcing it, and the other week I saw another group on Facebook talking about Giga's shattered glass bashes.

originally, it was some overseas site that posted it as news. though, the article was removed.

other TF sites had it posted as well.
Air-Hammer's avatar
Yep, just noticed Seibertron mentioned it as well.

Giga, you're becoming rather famous, hehe. I guess card/box art bashes can really throw people off.
