Some new shots of Generations Red Alert, including robot mode! And some nice comparisons too.

http://www.kotoys.co...php?topic=650.0

These are the first non-photoshopped photos of his robot mode we've seen, right? I have to say Red's colors are looking pretty nice and different despite being so similar to Sideswipe.

I still personally want to do something about that head so he doesn't look like "Medic Mission" Sideswipe, lol...

I'm more surprised it's a photoshoot by Gen Zhao that isn't washed out and full of totally redundant images. And it even looks transformed right for once!

And since it's gone at the chin, I'm reminded of Waspinator's mouth.

How soon will a knockoff company start making G1 Breakdown heads for Red Alert?

I really like the gray/red contrast, esp. on the legs. The black head looks "right" to me, too, since I had the toy when I was a kid, but never saw him in the cartoon (Never saw any of season 2, in fact.) It's still hard for me to get used to the idea of Red Alert or Grapple NOT having black heads. icon-fire.gif

Not too bad looking. I don't like the red light bar, but that is about it. Great for those lacking the cash for Henkei Red Alert.

Wow, it's kind of hard to believe that Hasbro's going to allow Drift and Red Alert to be on shelves at the same time.

Yeah that's surprising to me too, but they are 2 waves apart.

Red is looking very nice in these pictures. I have to say Hasbro did a bang up job with him, and he's completely different than the Henkei one which I love (since I was getting both any way).

Red Alert is very nice, and I would have gotten him in a heartbeat if I didn't already have the Henkei version (and honestly, I think I like the HenKei version and its vibrant colors a little more anyways).

He's really pretty. The white/gray contrast goes a long way towards making him distinct from the Henkei, without making him look not like Red Alert.

How will the jet pack fit on the back?




I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

Well, unless you decide you want him to be Police Sunstreaker.

And you could put the supercharger on in "Sunstreaker mode," sticking up... although that might look silly. Not like Reddy had a jetpack anyway.

I like how the gray bits just make everything around it POP. It looks really great.

I don't think you can put the backpack up in the Sunstreaker orientation for the Sideswipe body. But I haven't checked.
