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

Personally,these two seem like test shots mock ups by hasbro done decades ago. If they were finished products they'd have more color apps applied & factory stickers allpied to the toys. FWIW,Takara released a reissue of starscream in black colors called starscream.

I'd rather see 3rd parties bring back Cyberjets.

The black death figure might have been G2 Skywarp, or a new character too. I wonder if third party toy makers would make them.

Sandstorm looks awesome! I'd be alot more interested in him as an "original" character than ANOTHER Starscream repaint, even if it is an old one....
