Generation 1
Vintage Geek-Off - Cancelled G2 Seekers Sandstorm and Black Death Starscream Surface Online

By Peter Van on Wednesday, January 25, 2012



Belated Merry Christmas and on-time Chinese New Year present may have arrived for many Generation 2 Transformers fans as auctions for what may be legitimate Sandstorm and "Black Death" Starscream seeker figures have surfaced at Chinese auction site TaoBao.

The auctions claim that these are legitimate Hasbro figures and have images of the Hasbro copyright located on the figure.

In the early 1990s, Hasbro originally planned to release these figures, but they were ultimately cancelled.

The auctions were originally reported by Monzo at AllSpark.


According to TFWiki, fans' attention was piqued when artwork of Sandstorm surfaced from the collection of an ex-Hasbro employee, who was also responsible for showing off a hand-painted prototype of the other mentioned figure, "Black Death" Starscream.


An auction from another seller has also surfaced, claiming it to be a legitimate version, but unlike the aforementioned auctions, there is not proof of the authenticity.

Take a look at the images in the gallery and let us know what you think!

Retro Robot Radio and TFormers.com present one of the most bizarre paradoxes in the history of Transformers Audiobooks - Galvatron's Air Attack! This story was written in the short gap between the release of the 1986 toys, but before the release of the Transformers 1986 movie. The writers wanted to add in all the characters introduced in the film, but didn't know the plot of the film yet.. so they just read the tech specs for the characters and made something up.
