Solarblast is third-party Transformer character created by Impossible Toys as an homage to the Transformers character Sunstorm.
The design for the Tetra Squadron toys were done for Impossible Toys by TFW2005 member Venksta in 2009.
In July 2012 Impossible Toys teased the design that would become Solarblast on their web site.
In March 2013 Aces Toy Store, Big Bad Toy Store and TFsource opened preorders for Solarblast. The expected delivery was in May 2013. Impossible Toys posted a transformation video on Youtube.
Solarblast shipped in June 2013.
Solarblast is not a cadet, nor is he even real, but he does exist. He is a by product created by Banshee using forbidden tech to remove a portion of his own ember. As Banshee has seemed himself perfect, he made Solarblast as a first attempt at becoming a god. Like Banshee, Solarblast suffers from a god like complex and feels he is far above his rank and position. Considered by some a mere knock off of Banshee or a freak accident of a bad science experiment. Solarblast is not given much respect by his fellow soldiers. When called a fake or just generally enraged, Solarblast will unleash mini solar flares that cause damage to all around him.
