Transformers Triple Changers Commercial (1986)

As we can see from this commercial from back in 1986, the Autobots were in a bit of trouble thanks to the deviousness of those two Decepticons Astrotrain and Blitzwing. Thankfully for us kids of the 80s we could head to the toy store and booster the Autobot forces with Sandstorm and Broadside (Which is one of the most awesome Transformer names ever!).

Sadly I never owned Broadside nor Sandstorm but I did get Springer for Christmas and he was one of the neatest Transformers in my honest opinion so it’s all good. Years later I learned that while Broadside looked neat there was the whole issue that he has with heights and water, yeah I’m serious, he has a fear of heights in his jet mode and gets ‘seasick’ as a carrier. Harsh existence.
