    Got a anticipated package today with some new toys.


    As everyone knows Red Alert was given the Henkei treatment and universe died before an affordable one could be made.

    We finally got our wish with the Generations line.

    With 2 very different schemes we now have a choice between toon or comic.


    Overall a very solid color scheme and worth a purchase.

    Nice, I can't wait for Red Alert so I can finally crack him open and add him to my Classics/Universe/Henkei/Generations display case.

    I prefer the Henkei one, mainly for the new light piece. But hey, beggars can't be choosers. Any noticeable mold degredation?

    Henkei for sure, glad I brought mine last month. Thanks Hasbro for driving the Henkei price down and hooking me up!

    I like but I wish his head was red like in the cartoon. I know they were going with original toy's colors but eh the black head reminds me too much of sideswipe. Still might get it. Can anyone tell me when he comes out in stores?

    They are very different, but the only part that is "important" is the head. I will probably paint mine red. The Henkei looks better, but the Hasbro is perfectly acceptable.

    You know, I actually think that looks pretty great. I have the Henkei version, but honestly I don't think folks getting this one instead are getting a "downgrade" at all. The red/black head thing is a matter of personal preference, of course, but as for the other parts.... I think the grey arms and thighs and the red biceps break up the white nicely, and I like that his "inner body" (around the shoulder area, and including the suspenders that his hood-chest is attached to) is red.

    I also like the almost-clear windshield, it should prove more useful to customs than the dark blue or black that previous versions of the mold have used.

    It's a really nice-looking figure, in my opinion.

    Looks great. The grey's not bothering me as much as before. Definitely looking forward to getting him.

    Thanks for the review. :D
