New Transformers Generation Selects Announced by Hasbro

Hasbro has a massive Transformers live stream today and it included a huge release of some upcoming figures. One of these reveals were some new Generation Selects figures featuring three Transformers. Hubcap, Greasepit, and bounty hunter Exhaust are ready to roc your collection. Each one stands 5.5 inches and transforms between robot to vehicle mode in 18 steps or less. Generations expand the history of Transformers and these three keep the extended history of the franchise alive and kicking.

Hubcap is the real star in this wave. With so many identity issues in the past, it will be nice to have him back in the action. Each one of these figures is very well done and will make any Transformers fan quite happy. Each of the Transformers: Generations Selects Deluxe figures are priced at $19.99. They are all set to realize between July and August 2020 and pre-orders for Hubcap, Greasepit, and Exhaust are already live and can be found here.

Transformers Exhaust, Greasepit, and Hubcap Roll on In

"The WFC-GS11 DECEPTICON EXHAUST figure stands at 5.5 inches in robot mode and converts into sportscar mode in 18 steps. This special edition DECEPTICON EXHAUST figure portrays the DECEPTICON- turned-bounty-hunting mercenary from the War for Cybertron series. This figure does not have the traditional AUTOBOT or DECEPTICON logo, but wears his mercenary logo as seen in the show. The EXHAUST figure comes equipped with a blaster accessory that can be held in his hand or mounted on the roof of his vehicle mode. Generations Selects is a fan-dedicated line of figures featuring special edition characters that can't be found in the mainline.

"The WFC-GS12 GREASEPIT figure stands at 5.5 inches in robot mode, disassembles in 11 steps, and reassembles into Battle Station modes in 12 and 16 steps. This special edition WFC-GS12 GREASEPIT figure is inspired by the 1989 Micromaster gas station toy that was included with the Micromaster GREASEPIT toy. Paying homage to the original toy release, this figure comes with a "Super Gasoline Z-1" sign that can be attached to any of its battle station configurations and a blaster accessory that can attach to the figure in robot and battle station modes.

"The WFC-GS13 HUBCAP figure stands at 5.5 inches in robot mode and converts from robot to classic G1 sports car mode in 18 steps. HUBCAP comes with an arm cannon accessory and the hood of his car mode can be held in robot mode as a shield. This special edition WFC-GS13 HUBCAP figure is the first modern era update inspired by the 1986 Mini-Vehicle mail-away and even features the classic orange face unique to the original toy release!"

"HUBCAP is a character with some serious identity issues. Not only is he often confused with BUMBLEBEE for being of similar size and color, but the original 1986 mail-away mislabeled him as CLIFFJUMPER. Not that anyone knew who Hubcap was at the time anyway. Though he appeared in the 1986 Mini-Vehicle assortment, he was only introduced into TRANSFORMERS entertainment in 2007 with the release of IDW's MEGATRON Origin Issue #3.
