    I don’t know what the hell they are but these popped up in Walmart’s system while I was Doing EAN search’s.

    Their listings can only be viewed via the mobile app and they’re locked so I can’t pull the Hasbro product numbers Unfortunately.

    I don’t believe their EANs match anything known, if @Nevermore can double check I’d appreciate it.

    Tra Gen G1 Red Soundwave
    EAN: 5010993729012

    Tra Gen G1 Red Megatron
    EAN: 5010993729029

    I'm guess these are hate plague repaints of either the WFC or ER molds?

    Maybe "red" = "redeco"?

    Don’t they put G1 in the line for G1 reissues? Well not in this case since Megatron is listed and they just did Soundwave... so who knows...

    Perhaps it’s not Red but RAD? Maybe he wants to tell us all about the Transformers!

    Soundwave redeco = G1 Soundblaster reissue, maybe?

    Megatron is a bit trickier. The G1 toy would never be reissued in today’s market, even in the orange and blue Safety colors.

    Maybe both of these are Siege redecos? Granted, we’ve already gotten 2 exclusive Siege Megatrons from Wal-Mart (35th Anniversary and Netflix), but this could be another one (or an Earthrise Megatron redeco, now that I think about it).

    If they're redecos of the WFC figures I can see Megatron being the rumored G2 repaint that was listed a while back. Soundwave's likely going to be Soundwave but then again we already got a Soundblaster last year from the mold. Perhaps it's his SG recolor? Or even a Machine Wars Soundwave from ER Doubledealer? That'd be awesome if that's the case.

    They're "G1" but also "Gen."

    I don't think reissues ever get the "Generations" label.

    Yup, that megatron could be a new repaint from the earthrise mold.

    Interesting find. I think Hate Plague would be interesting as someone else suggested, but were they even involved in that? Wasn't that a season 3 episode, thereby nulling Megatron?

    Actually Megatron was in a flashback scene in that episode. Didn’t face the hate plague though.

    Red? Weird. Would not mind a clean deco of wave though.

    Hmm... what if, and hear me out, but what if they do releases of figures as their rival or Autobot counterpart and vice versa?

    Blaster is to Soundwave as Optimus is to Megatron in a team dynamic or something, and Optimus and Blaster are both red so maybe a blue Blaster and a G1 megatron coloured Optimus perhaps?

    Maybe the Hate Plague will be in the Netflix show and these are more special edition figures? Can we tell if these are Walmart exclusives yet?
