Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron users, Jojo-Gojira-1939, and Dudicus, have let us know that fellow Seibertron user, and YouTube toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime has reviewed the now shipping; Transformers Selects Voyager Class G2 Sandstorm!

This toy (already in some collectors hands right now!), is based on an unreleased toy when Generation 2 was being made. This Decepticon would have been based on the Generation 1 conehead mold. Now, this release is a redeco abd sloght retool of the Earthrise Voyager Class Conehead mold.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:

I've been a bad boy. Not only did I ordered God Neptune off Age 3 and Up, but I also ordered the Beast Wars "G1" original off Ebay for a "reasonable" price. :HEADHURTS:

Looking forward taking pictures of both together! :DANCE:

"Lord Megatron, there is a whole new generation of Transformers on Earth."
"Then let us introduce ourselves to this new generation, Sandstorm. We will tell this... Generation 2... that they serve me or die!"
"As you wish, Lord Megatron!"

I like Sandstorm, but man, the packaging... It was nearly impossible to get his "missiles" out of the plastic without destroying the plastic or the missile. In fact one of mine bend enough that you can see the fatigue mark on the stem by the tip.

I keep a pair of tiny wire snips handy for several reasons, and opening Transformers is one of them. The snips are tiny enough to slip between the figure and the plastic ties, and I can use them to cut the plastic around parts of the figure. I had to do that with Super Megatron. Thankfully I didn't have any problems with Sandstorm, but I know exactly what you are talking about.

I have a little cutter for the plastic ties, but the missiles didn't have those, they were just super tight in the plastic.

Finger Nail Trimmers do the same job... Just don't mix them up with the pair you keep in the bathroom. Bonus, the little cuticle blade some of them come with is good cut cutting the tape on the box flaps. All in one.

Sigh, this reminds me of when I first got into the hobby. The big complaint was Hasbro not using the collector-friendly packaging of Takara. They explained at a BotCon that their retail partners wouldn't allow packaging that was easy to open and close.

So either this replacing product just dosen't happen in TT markets because people there are more honest,or retail sales people in America are stupid ;)

A mix of both, really. Japanese people seems to take pride on honesty a bit more than typical asians, so they tends to not do things like that. But also, the security there is higher, and doind those swaps, when caught, can even involve themselves with local police, if the store owner so choose.

Although the selects line is not a traditional retail item as they have to be ordered online and not in retail locations. No need for super difficult packaging.
