Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron userbacem, has been in touch to let us know that new images of the forthcoming Transformers Generations Selects Deluxe Class figure, Rotorstorm, have appeared on the Transfans Facebook Page! These new photos show off the brand new head sculpt that was revealed as part of the Transformers Fans First Friday. Until that point, all we had seen of the figure, had it with a recoloured Spinister head from Siege.

We also get a comparison side by side with Spinister.

Am I the only one bothered by Spinister's guns not being the same? I look at Rotorstorm and all four barrels are yellow and it just looks so much better to me.

I'm definitely considering it, especially since I just got a box Overlord on the cheap!

Not sure why they even tried to put the symbols on the shoulders and if they thought that it some how works they could have given ultra magnus his. Skipping rotorstorm for the original toy tho the selects version looks nice I'd rather him be different to spinnister.

Spinister's guns were designed to look like his old Targetmasters in gun mode, so that's why they're different colors.

Kinda regretted preordering before the head was shown to be different than Spinister's, But now I'm so glad I did. He looks fantastic! Now they just need to do Pyro, Guzzle, And Ironfist, And I'll be very happy.
C'mon Hasbro, You know you want to!.. You do want to.. Right? Right?

Oh yeah, he was a double Targetmaster. They got funky with the color schemes at the tail end of G1.

Rotorstorm still looks great, no regrets.

Has anyone else seen this yet? This screenshot has been making rounds, and I just checked and confirmed it is a real post:

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron users, Nemesis Primal and -WonkoTheSane- have let us knkw that the Official Transformers Instagram has been updated with a surprising list of reveal dates, in what Hasbro is calling, Transformers Tuesdays!

Image

As you can see from the image, every Tuesday starting tomorrow (08/11) until Tuesday 09/08, at 12 Eastern Time (9 Pacific Time) a new Transformers Generations Selects figure will be revealed on the sellers listed on that day (tomorrow the reveal will fall on Hasbro Pulse for instance, then next week Entertainment Earth etc)

While the post says figures, we don't know how many are set to be revealed each time.

What do you think we'll see tomorrow? What figures would you like to see done in the Selects range? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

So we can assume there's at least 5 reveals if each reveals one. And that somewhat matches up with previous leaks.

Hothouse (Airwave repaint)
Bugbite (Bumblebee repaint)
G2 Megatron (ER Megatron repaint)
Roritchi (Fasttrack repaint)

And I'm guessing Bluestreak? I don't think he's been leaked for any specific line.

The Bluestreak listing on eBay that had those renders that got posted on the ER thread claims him to be E32 as part of Earthrise proper, so I'm inclined to believe he's the Walgreens figure this year.

There have some Selects Ratchet leaks/claims of varying credibility, so maybe the 5th one is Ratchet? Outside of that, it would have to be someone we don't know about.

Man that is going to be a real PITA to keep track of. Well thankfully I only want 2 of these, (Hothouse & Roritchi) hopefully they are both Pulse...odds are not likely though. I especially feel bad for all non US fans, hopefully they can get these some other way.

Have there been a Selects figure not available through Pulse?

Edit: Nevermind, you mean the reveal.

I don't think so, but hopefully there will be a little clarification. Do these online retailers get absolute exclusivity, or just first release of these toys?

I remember with Lancer and Galactic Man, I think EE had first release at SDCC last year, and Pulse got it 3 or 4 months later...

Inferno would be my guess for selects if the earth rise rumor of only three waves is true.

Posted by o.supreme on August 10th, 2020 @ 4:13pm CDT
Earthrise is confirmed to have 4 waves, if only 1 or 2 items in that wave, like how PotP only new item in wave 4 was Novastar... Inferno is slated for Kingdom

Inferno is rumoured to be a Kingdom release.

Shackwave and Lancer were both available on Pulse during SDCC while EE was selling them, they just had limited stock because most of it seemingly went to EE at the time, so most of the users here who ordered them from Pulse got them later because of that.

There was one Selects figure that was never sold on Pulse though: RED WING. :evil:

Inferno is supposedly in Kingdom Wave 1 according to the credible leaks.
EDIT: Ninja'd twice over.

There's also new rumours stating that Earthrise is only going to be three waves with Kingdom potentially hitting when Siege wave 5 was out. Its dubious but I can sorta see it
