So this whole thing is a Walmart exclusive, at least in the US. Nobody knows about its distribution in other parts of the world, as far as I know. Now, the Netflix redeco series is also a Walmart exclusive in the US but at least some of those figures are getting released normally by Takara and can be preordered on sites that sell Japanese transformers. So would it be realistic to expect the RED series to be treated similarly? They're transformers-branded but I assume that they're made by other design teams than the people who do transformers and that Takara is therefore not involved. But it's still toys of characters that are relevant to Takara and their customers.
