Series Transformers: Beast Wars

Sandstorm was one of the exclusives at BotCon in 1999. He was a tan redeco of Beast Wars Scorponok. This Sandstorm was in fact Scorpius, a member of the Covenant of Primus, who for unknown reasons left the group and disappeared from their knowledge for several centuries. He made his way to Cybertron, where he became the leader of the resistance against Shokaract, a role in which he orchestrated the creation of Windrazor and approached the legends of Cybertron for their help. Apparently, he also worked his way into Shokaract's trust, joining the ranks of his Heralds alongside Antagony Cataclysm. When the battle of Point Omega took place, Scorpius joined in, briefly acting as though he were on Shokaract's side before attacking him at point blank range. Though Shokaract destroyed him, his example revealed the key to victory to the rest of the Covenant-by combining their Sparks to recreate the power of Primus, they severed the link between Shokaract's Decepticon Matrix of Conquest and the life force of Unicron in the past. As a result, Unicron's life force was drawn back into the timestream and Shokaract was erased from history, bringing an end to the never ending battle between Primus and Unicron.
