We have an interesting bit of news to share with you all today. User Powermaster Ultra Prime alerted us to a post on TF-HK's Facebook page which seems to show off a computer screen with a redeco of the recently released Earthrise Ramjet mold in the colors of G2 Seeker Sandstorm's deco.

Transformers News: Rumor: Transformers Generations Selects G2 Sandstorm Revealed?

It's possible that this is just a well done digibash or custom, as G2 Sandstorm hasn't been rumored at all, but until we get any confirmation from Hasbro or Takara, there's no way to verify this.

What do you think? Are you excited for a possible rare/obscure character to get a release? Let us know what you think below, and stay tuned for all the latest Transformers news!

Well, both the Siege and Earthrise seeker molds are solid, so I'm all in on any additional seekers for either mold.

I may not be interested in getting the regular Coneheads. But that Select G2 Sandstrom may be a sure pre-order if it's a real thing.

That may be the reveal that the Singapore Transformers group was hinting at for tomorrow.

I would absolutely buy Sandstorm! I am all for using Selects to produce more obscure characters and G2 versions. I still hold out hope, faint though it may be, that they'll go back to the Combiner Wars molds and make a G2 Defensor.

YES.

They made G2 Menasor, who's just as obscure. Why didn't they make a boxset of G2 Defensor?? I'd even be fine buying them piece by piece if they offered them as Selects figures.

I thought Sandstorm was a triple changer Autobot? This doesn't look anything like him.

G1 Sandstorm- Triple Changer Autobot
G2 Sandstorm- desert camouflage redeco of G2 Ramjet's toy, but never released. Separate characters

I am wondering if this is not gonna be the Hotlink for Earthrise?

Skeptical until we get an official announcement but I am always down for more Seekers

More Seekers are always welcome in my residence. I’d kill for a Slipstream out of these.

I will trek through a desert to obtain this specimen, Sandstorm is the absolute sandy dunes and will make a fine addition to the collection.

Provided this is a legit upcoming figure.

While this is canon, my head canon for some universes is that Sandstorm actually started out as a Seeker (with addition to my head canon that the cone head was an alteration made to some Seekers as a punishment if they had committed an action that would be seen as a great shame such as notable failures or cowardice, etc) but at some point was able to regain his honor and had his body redesigned to the Triple Changer form we know him as, yes he would be a case of a Decepticon who joined the Autobots.

Just as a way to bridge the two characters together even with the notion that characters can share a name while being different individuals (much like how there are multiple Bobs or Peters, etc) with it possibly adding more depth to both characters.

Only problem there would be that Seeker Sandstorm is a G2 character ;) one head cannon way to resolve it is that its a Beast Machines Vehicon generals situation, a spark being put into a new body and brain washed

He was never released or used in story material, but yeah it could also work the other way around since I see the Seeker body type as a mass produced shell that individuals get placed into unless said otherwise.

I would just change his name to "Dusty" or "Rudat" if I was getting one. It's not like it would be denigrating a character that has any kind of actual history beyond just never getting released.

What we really need honestly, is Jhiaxus. A voyager selects G2 inspired Jhiaxus. I'd be all over that.

I might get sucked into another Seeker armada.

Seekers are great because even a G2 recolor can be repurposed into a genericon. Even though that's true of basically any TF when you get down to it the cartoon and the whole nature of war planes really lends itself well to army building.

I am SO about this, been saying they needed to take advantage of all these weird seekers going all the way back to CW
