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.
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!
