    Red might just be a place-holder name.
    However, imagine if it's actually red referring to the red Decepticon symbols of Shattered Glass.

    EDIT: Or maybe somehow it refers to Netflix?

    We'll never get a P38 Megatron re-release here so my interest is nil.

    More power to those who are happy with those myriads of tank megs.

    P.S. Could you imagine a box set with Megs, in his P38 form, whit his two "brothers", you know, the Browning M1910 and the Magnum 44? Give the box set a cool back story as to what happened to Megs' brothers and all. Dreams...

    There's another Ratchet rumored, so hopefully that'll have comic colors.

    If they're going retro with Megs, try giving us a gun mode for a change. (Or Hell, I'll even take the Animated Osprey mode.) I am SO sick am and tired of all these generic tank modes and I refuse to buy any.

    This may seem like an odd question, but have Hasbro ever used 'redeco' in any official descriptions/listings before? I have it in my head that's more of a 'fan term' than something they use.

    Perhaps the old toys in cartoon colours - both with RED eyes rather than yellow.

    Nah. That's all I have.

    Christ, the Siege/Earthrise Megatron mold certainly is getting a lot of variation.

    Siege original
    Siege 35th cel-shaded
    Siege Netflix version
    Siege Selects G2 (thanks @transform75)
    Earthrise original
    ”Red”(???)

    5 in the space of two years, jesus.

    If a 3P company does a remake of that revolver dude, I'd be ALL OVER that! Also include a tiny version with a 5mm handle for other Transforers to hold! :eek:  (Please MechFansToys)


    Unreasonable request but, imagine a purple Soundwave redeco of the G1 toy...

    What makes that so bizarre is the fact that the toyline is one of the few places we've seen Megatron as a tank for many, many years now. Aside from (somewhat) RotF, and a select few animated series, he hasn't been a tank too many other places than in toy form. Personally, I wouldn't mind if he was made to look like Destro's Dominator, or something really special like that, but just a fairly ordinary tank mode feels like copying homework answers from another student from 8 years prior to you.

    Not sure if that's a joke or just a release announcement I missed, but I would probably buy that, then still complain about all the unnecessary repaints coming out.
