Late in the evening (Eastern Time) on July 21, 2020 several retailers dropped a previously unannounced release for Generations Selects. Unlike a majority of Generations releases, these two figures are inspired by Generation 2, the line that bridged the gap between the G1 and Beast Wars eras in Transformers history! One figure is a redeco of Earthrise Megatron in his purple and green G2 colors. The other is a callback to an unreleased G2 Seeker named Sandstorm! Check out the official product descriptions, images and pre-order links below:
