    So, first, these things exist:

    Sandstorm (G2) - Transformers Wiki

    http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/9/99/G2BlackDeathStarscream.jpg

    A redeco of Ramjet in desert colors as an (apparent!) new character named Sandstorm, and an unidentified black redeco of Starscream with "Black Death" on the nosecone. They both appear to have been intended for G2, but cancelled.

    So today I was poking around TaoBao, and I find...

    ±äÐνð¸Õ G2 Íì¸èÔ*Ä£ Õý°æ HASBRO 1992 ɳĮºÖÉ«g1ºìÖ©Ö뾪ÌìÀ×-ÌÔ±¦Íø

    ±äÐνð¸Õ G2 ºìÖ©ÖëÔ*Ä£ °µºÚ1992 HASBRO g1ÄÖ·*¾ªÌìÀ×-ÌÔ±¦Íø

    Production colors! whaaaat

    This seller also has G2 Stunticons and Protectobots up, so I assume these are legit?

    EDIT: Wait, another Sandstorm?

    ±äÐνð¸ÕG1ÅçÆø»úG2ÅçÆø»ú-ÌÔ±¦Íø

    But this seller also has a G2 Drag Strip for sale, so, uh... huh.

    Write, that black starscream is interesting. I can't see anything that says "death" on it being released for any reason

    The first ones are legit and have been listed for awhile, the second Sandstorm and dragstrip are customs baised off the originals and he mentions that they were spraypainted.

    Thanks for the clarification on the second Sandstorm, Cobra Zartan!

    As for other black Starscreams, there's also this piece of artwork floating around. I've never learned what it's deal is.

    It's going to be a little hard telling the difference between black Starscream and Skywarp, ainnit?

    I thought the same, but I saw one of the pics of Black Death has the "G2 Decepticon" tampo on it.
