Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Mindmaster, we already have some in-hand images of the very recently revealed Generations Selects G2 Sandstorm and G2 Megatron! Thanks to a post on Geek Culture, we have several in hand images of both figures, as well as an unboxing video showing their transformations (though neither has any new steps compared to their donor figures).

Sandstorm looks pretty cool, I'll probably just get him and the original trio and then I'm going to write off buying any more seekers. I can justify getting the same guy three times because I want Skywarp and why not get Starscream to complete the trio if I'm going to be forced to get Thundercracker because he's bundled with my favorite seeker. But I can't justify getting six of the same guy when I don't really care about the coneheads that much (I like Ramjet but Dirge and Thrust are kind of meh to me). So instead I'll just get Sandstorm and he can be my conehead. And Hasbro totally won't be able to rope me into any future seeker repaints.
Nope.
None whatsoever.
I especially wouldn't buy a Nacelle.
Nope.
I have more willpower than that.

I really want to redo this shot when I finish the rest of the Classics Seekers galleries one day! I think there were 31 total ... but unfortunately no properly done Sunstorm, which has always bummed me out. I could totally go for a 32nd Classics Seeker as Sunstorm. Hell, I'd even be game for the G2 unproduced guys like Sunstorm at this point.

Megatron hits me in the nostalgia a little bit. That mold, though.

Sandstorm looks fantastic. I love the teeth on the nosecone. I wanted it as a Classics Seeker when those were a thing and I want it now. Preordered!

I wonder what a Neo G2 lineup looks like by now. Between Funpub, Combiner Wars and the various other releases it has to look pretty impressive.

I'm reeeal tempted to get that Sandstorm... But $40 seems like a bit much.

I guess the Funpub Sunstorm (with Hotlink and Bitstream) isn't your thing?

Annnnnnd Sandstorm's already sold out... So there goes that figure. Hopefully Thrust is at least available for longer

I just ordered him with EE. I have a feeling he'll be available again with Pulse. Red Wing is the only Selects figure that wasn't really easy to get at some point.

Why does the Entertainment Earth pic with Sandstorm and Megatron say "Decepticon Combiner"?

Maybe they're just reusing the background art from the G2 Combaticon set of WFC 1.0 Bruticus?

I preordered with BBTS. It still seems available there.

It's the wrong colors. Sunstorm is supposed to have white instead of black.

Yeah, the whole mix-up with e-HOBBY that inadvertently gave us Red Wing is to blame for that. Otherwise, Fun Pub would have colored that Sunstorm correctly.

Hasbro Pulse is sold out of G2 Sandstorm already, had to go with BBTS.

Since it's not due till February 2021 according to the site I placed a preorder on BBTS even if it's not the ideal price for a Canadian.

The Seekers are that important to me to collect that I'm not gonna lose out on him like I possibly have with Red Wing and Hotlink, I'll cancel the order if a better deal pops up else where.

Hotlink is available here in the States still if you need help getting one.

I get payed on the first of September, I presume you mean on Seibertron Ebay or something?

If Hotlink would still be available then I would appreciate help getting him.

I just bought Hotlink from Walmart in-store a few days ago.

One thing I just noticed.....Sandstorm has the G1 Decepticon symbol on him, and Megatron has the G2 Decepticon symbol. Shouldn't they both be G2 symbols?
