    they look pink to me, or at least a coppery/rose gold kind of color. i feel like the background on the product photos undermines it a bit since it's such a deep red/pink, it makes the accents look more gold by comparison. it looks better on the wal-mart listing where she's on a white background

    I bought R.E.D. Soundwave and was absolutely unimpressed. Paint and plastic felt cheap and I just couldn't stand looking at it after even less than 24 hours so decided to sell it. However I did find myself impressed enough with Megatron (as approximating the G1 look much better) enough to buy one as a desk curiosity item. I have it posed holding an energon cube and it looks the part pretty decently. In other words, I can see picking and choosing from these but definitely not going all in. I like the final look for both Cheetor and Arcee and will likely buy both, but Soundwave and Optimus just don't have the same appeal.

    I love the look of cheetor. One of the only things i pre-ordered from pulse con. I like how they've tweaked the design. I hope to see more liberties taken for other Beast Wars characters because i don't want to collect the same designs 40 times.

    The Beast Wars characters were the only characters I was interested in. If they're going to botch them, why would I bother?

    Okay, but the character designs are still fine. The MPs prove that. And even if they weren't, they're certainly less outdated than the G1 characters who look accurate and good, and the whole line is supposedly about show accuracy.

    Because the nose is also wrong. The whole thing is off.

    Arcee is picture-perfect and Cheetor is an imposter.

    I can\'t wait. I\'m loving this line, sure the first 3 were a struggle. But this Arcee looks amazing. Can\'t wait for the rest of Prime characters

    Awww crap... here we go again. My orders still say Delayed (my orders were placed in late June/ Early July). I think I'm just gonna cancel and pick them up in store. This preorder garbage is useless.

    It won't even let me view my preorders to cancel them. Says they don't exist. I get the emails about delays, then they don't even exist in my purchase history for preorders.

    Got the same email, really irritating.. One thing I don't get is, how are some people reviewing them (at least Optimus) if they're not out yet. I'm assuming this delay is for all Walmarts, I mean, if anything it should be available online first to ship, before it's even remotely in the actual stores. That just makes, that's how it should work.

    I don’t know if this is the appropriate place, but the RED line is perfect for characters like
    1. The 1985 female Autobots (deluxe scale)
    2. AlphaTrion ( voyager scale)
    3. Transformers Prime characters

    Sorry to say, but I'm out on this line. Timing, already collecting 2 scales of transformers, and space availability killed this for me.

    However, had I known how hard it would be to get a refund from a preorder placed on a gift card but then not having kept said gift card, I would have just kept the darn things.

    Oh crap, another delay! :lol 

    I actually love the RED designs but I'm really disappointed of quality seen so far. Hope for a better second batch.

    I believe this is the third delay for me. Placed the preorder at the end of June and someone I know just walked in and picked up all three on a whim. What was the point of preordering from Walmart again? I'm cancelling all of my preorders with them seeing as how I'll probably just be able to grab them off the shelf quicker and cheaper.

    I got the pre-order email too, and I gotta tell you, I was mostly relieved to find out it WASN'T about the Xbox Series X I managed to order from them :lol 

    If it ships, it ships, if it doesn't, it doesn't. I'm not trying to go to a lot of Wal-Marts these days, and I got enough other preorders coming in through the end of the year that I probably won't even notice the nearly $30 I'd pay for this thing after shipping.
