    I was just watching the G1 episode "Auto Berserk" and i realized that I'd REALLY want to see the Universe Classics mold for Sideswipe and Sunstreaker repainted into Red Alert.

    Would you like to see a Red Alert repaint? On a scale from 1 to 10 with 1 being least likely and 10 being most likely what do you think the odds are of Hasbro making a Red Alert?

    THANKS for posting!!

    I take it you want more than the Universe Legends Red Alert? I thought it was really cool in robot mode, not so much in vehicle mode. According to those more knowledgeable than me it's a Cybertron Hotshot re-paint but I think it's worth owning...at least until a larger version appears

    Aren't we guaranteed to get one because of Inferno?

    But yes, and 19/10

    I'd love another version of the Twins' mold - it's easily my favorite of the new Classics toys. Red Alert would look great alongside Inferno, too.

    I'd say there's at least a 95% chance of us getting one. Hasbro has the name, it's a simple remold to slap on a light bar (and probably drop the super charger), and the whole point of the Universe line is to have a lot of repaints. Red Alert seems like a given. The only question is will it come out before the line goes on hiatus next year.

    I'll be surprised if we don't get it. So yes, and 9.5.

    I just hope it isn't a botcon or another convention exclusive.

    Yes, and I'd give it a 9.95 chance of happening. Just to add in my two cents on a slight skew of the topic, I give a Punch-Counterpunch version of the same mold a 3 on the probability scale.

    Same here I'd pick him up picked up sideswipe recently and I own sunstreaker and its an awsome mold plus we got the two prowl repaints so its most certainly not out of the question and is extremely likely.

    Yes, I want Red Alert, and I think the chances of it happening are a solid 10. Hasbro loves a good repaint (or a bad one for that matter) and this one makes perfect sense. It could end up as a retail exclusive, but I don't think it will be a Botcon one. I don't see Hasbro shitting the bed again like they did with the coneheads.

    I'd say the odds are around a 9 , probably an eventual inevitability. It might be a store exclusive, but since we got Prowl AND Silverstreak AND Smokescreen all in mass release, it seems quite likely. Hey, if you got some imagination, the engine supercharger accessory can work as an ersatz light-bar, too.
