Thanks to the TFWiki Twitter page, we have some new official images to share with you for the upcoming Transformers Generations Selects Hot Shot and Cromar!

These new images give us a nice clear look at these 2 new Selects releases. Hot Shot is a new head retool of the Wave 1 Hound figure, and is based on his Cybertron Defense body from Transformers Cybertron. Cromar is a new head retool of the Wave 2 Sixgun figure, and is the final of the 3 Powerdashers to receive official images.

Both of these figures will be available from the Entertainment Earth booth during New York Comic Con this coming weekend, and will presumably go up for sale following the Con as well.

Check out the images below, and let us know what you think of them in the comments section below!

I'll say it again: Cromar was FORGED to be G2 Sideswipe armor

I’m hyped for Cromar. Hot Shot looks oddly appealing too, but the original’s probably better, right?

Right?

Agreed. He was totally meant for it.

I don't know, but I was just counterpunched into an original, so I guess i'll find out

Better by far. So is Star Convoy delayed overall or just from BBTS.

IDK, I like the overall design of the original toy for Cybertron Defense Hot Shot, but it was nowhere near as poseable as this new one is. Best of both worlds we'd get an update directly of the original design with modern articulation and engineering, but for now I'll happily take this new one.

Can't say I'm impressed that they're STARTING this line off with so many repaints from a previous line...

Dude, the entire line is repaints/remolds. Selects is like the old collectors club or botcon. They won't have any original molds

The original had missiles ontop of missiles, no need to do yoga.

And their HasLab Unicron preorder (in one's Order Stack, at least) says that that figure is coming "January 2020", but that ain't right. ;)

They're getting them from Hasbro and Hasbro says they've been delayed to November.

Oh. Pfft. I thought these were additions to that upcoming "earthrise" line...

Way back when the Seacons were first announced I made up my mind to get them all at once instead of 1 or 2 at a time. I wonder if that was a mistake financially...will the whole set demand a higher price on the aftermarket, or will they be released as a set as well, perhaps as a redeco, like the G2 versions of the other combiners were?

And I would love it if Selects did an actual blue Bluestreak.

Like most Combiners you're probably better off buying ASAP because these aren't likely to become cheaper. It's doubtful that a box set is coming later for this team though I wouldn't rule one out for the potential God Neptune team.

Yeah, but I guess I just personally need at least a certain baseline amount of articulation to get a figure, and the original CD Hot Shot does not do it for me (and I say that as someone who has the figure).

I was only going to try for hotshot since the original is sitting on my shelf in all his glory. But after seeing other dude who's name I forgot, I want both!

Not interested in Hot Shot or Cromar, just boring repaints/retools.

Then I guess you will be ignoring this line altogether since Selects is nothing but redecos and retools, being the spiritual successor to the BotCon/TCC exclusives.
