    In Hasbro's infinite Wisdom...Cough, Cough. Why would they not make a Red Alert for the Universe Line? Its an easy repaint no new head mold and they did it with the Seekers and are still maybe making a Sunstorm as well as being on the short list.

    There are some other Classics/Universe Legends that made it to a larger scale. Not sure that's really the reason.

    Hasbro already said that they would not be making a Red Alert for the Universe Line at Botcon or the Hasbro Q&A. I dont recall which but they did say that.

    Probably to have a reason to use the Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mold in Universe 3.0.

    I hope so. But again they said no Red Alert for Universe Line at Botcon or in the Q&A.

    Stores want rotfq* toys not universe, that's why we haven't got one yet.
    Probably after the last wave of rotfq*, then we'll get one.

    Who cares! In exchange for Red Alert, we are getting Punch and Counter Punch which I think is more RAD....

    Yes for the universe line, possibly hinting a change in the next lines name. Maybe no longer called universe, since they did change classics to universe.

    Mass release or exclusive?

    If exclusive then it's...not "RAD".

    They said they weren't planning to release Red Alert in Universe. Maybe it'll end up being a Wal-Mart RotF exclusive, like Breakaway and some other repaints were for the first movie.

    They never ruled it out as a possibility, just that they currently didn't have any plans to make one of their own (the question was if they were going to release the Henkei Red Alert figure or not). Seeing as Universe is going to continue on, and at least at the Deluxe size class, it wouldn't surprise me if Red Alert was one of the figures released.

    Ummm...no, they didn't. They said that Universe would continue, and at least at the Deluxe class scale, sometime late next year. Also, it's still 2.0, NOT 3.0. They might come up with different packaging, but it wouldn't be the first line to go threw a packaging change. To put it simply, it's the same line, same name, just more figures instead of it ending.

    Of course, don't you see them outside your window, riding along with army jeeps, race cars, and Space Winnebagoes?

    cause I sure do
