It's just that this particular photo set isn't the best confirmation of the proposed toy scheme, as the lighting in general is skewed in that direction. That particular sample could be the regular red.
But if we've seen physical samples before, then that's somewhat different.
Check out the Sharkticon commercial for more hot throbbing pink rod action. Also, the stickers on the doors of the original Hot Rod toy are pink, clearly indicating what color the toy was going to be originally before they made it a less girly color. Because I can only assume that's why they changed it.
