(inside)

The large toy exclusive was SandstormTM, a sand and orange repaint of ScorponokTM. He was packaged in a window box designed to resemble a PredaconTM war journal. The inside of the lid contained the following text:

"Iacon. Once the last stronghold of the famed Autobots, led by the fabled Optimus Prime. Now, it serves as a hive for wretched souls and lost dreams. I received a tip from my source that there is an old 'bot who knows of the last stronghold from the Great War many millennia back. I wait for the message to come. I have enough credits for the information and Primus knows we need it. The rebellion goes poorly and my troops are losing their will to fight. My Maximal counterpart seems to be having the same trouble with his soldiers. Who knows how much longer we can hold out.

"Slag it! I almost got taken today by His sentry guards. The sniveling coward who gave me the information sold me out. There were at least two companies of guards and I think at least one of His Heralds. I managed to escape with the information, but not before I took a show at that informant. I managed to evade the search parties and make it back to our temporary headquarters.

"To be caught at such a critical moment would end this little party. Regardless of the cost and risk, I got what I desperately needed. The last outpost is in the most desolate part of Cybertron, cursed by Primus, and left well alone. It's name - J'nwan."

He also featured computer-generated character artwork from Mainframe Entertainment. Click here to view his tech spec.
