    Makes me a little happier that I have the Henkei version. To me, the Henkei version is a little more Red Alertier. Guess I expected more from the Hasbro version. I am shocked that everyone started to sell the Henkei version the minute this one was announced/seen! I think they look different enough that it's worth it to own them both!

    Something seems off about the color scheme, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Might be the grey plastic. But other than that, it looks great.

    People are complaining about the black head, but that at least is accurate to the G1 toy, right? Hasn't Hasbro and Takara been going back and forth on one giving homage to the G1 toys and the other giving homage to the cartoon?

    For the most part. I'm glad because I prefer the toys first.

    Gray plastic has a way of cheapening entire figures. It looks awful.

    Hmmm, I guess he should have had a red gun and completely red upper legs, but I'm still liking him. Plus, he's quite a bit different from the Henkei version for me to make it worthwhile to have both.

    Seeing the botcon toy next to it makes me wonder, whats with the FP toys having all visited the headshrinker? The comically small headsculpts are amusing.

    Yeah, the grey is making him look kinda cheap compared to the Henkei. Oh well, I wanted a $13 figure, this is what I'm getting.

    Agreed. It makes it looks a bit KOish.

    Funny how Drift has a bigger alt mode, but Red Alert has a bigger robot mode. It says something about Drift's kibble, donnit?

    I'm glad that Takara and Hasbro are kinda both giving us versions of figures with attributes to the toys and cartoon. I prefer accuracy to the cartoon myself which is why I don't care for the black head though

    And it's all about choices. Everyone wins, IMO.

    Oddly enough, I passed by CHUG shelf earlier and noticed the spot I had reserved for Red. And now we get new pics. It's nice to have the cool back again. :)

    I'm glad this Red Alert came out because I was able to pick up the Henkei version at a VERY nice price!
