    In the States, yes, but he seems to be a mass retail figure in other countries. I could well be wrong on that, though.

    Thanks guys. I'll start checking Walgreens on my regular toy hunts. Any chance of him popping back up on Pulse? I got my earth mode Sideswipe in the other day and I like the figure so much, I just want it in another color scheme lol

    Officially he will be out in November at Walgreens, I am not sure if I have heard of any in-store sightings yet. But he popped up on Pulse in the Partner Exclusives section a few Fan's First Friday's ago, the Perceptor wave reveal one.

    Yeah, traditionally Walgreens exclusives have always hit around mid October to November and last a few months. I was still finding ER Streak when I got my shots at Walgreens in May/June.

    That Pulse got them way early means now I'm deprived of a fairly fun hunt, as there is literally a dozen or two Walgreens between my old community college and work.

    KD Red Alert is general retail in Takara's markets, you can actually pre-order him right now on places like HobbyLink Japan and Amazon JP.

    Takara has one market (Japan), but he's also general retail from Hasbro Asia as well

    Just opened my set up, and all is good with it.

    No missing parts, no loose joints, and no effed up paint apps (so far), so I'm extremely happy now. :D

    Just managed to sell both of my Skywarps in under an hour on eBay. Sold them for $25.00 each with free shipping. Made some money back, so I can buy more interesting figures.

    I'm so hoping for a G2 release of the ER mold. G2 Sideswipe is the best Sideswipe.

    Finally got my set... love it... excerpt for the looseness in seules legs. Added the nonnef shoulder Canon and a 3p rifle that is easy better than the stock gun.

    If anyone wants the skywarp fig... shoot me a message.

    My only issue with the Sideswipe mold is the lack of spoiler which I can fix with a 3P kit.

    You know red alert looks more like sideswipe’s twin then sunstreaker.

    Which custom company makes the smoothest spoiler for sideswipe, that has the least amount of 3D printing lines in it? I've been looking at jrc, but nonnef has really good quality in the past

    I'd just wait fit nonnef personally... he does have a spoiler for RA already.

    Nonnef, but there's a caveat, you have to buy 2 of his kits ($7.50 total). He made spoilers for Siege Sideswipe/Red Alert, you'll need those for the actual spoiler, and he made adapters for the Earth mode that you'll need but they only come in black.

    No waiting necessary, he's only doing the adapters and reusing the old spoilers

    flash photos exacerbate the color differences

    Those Nonnef spoilers look okay, but I dig the JRC ones better.

    Fair, but they were asking about the smoothest Spoilers, jrc's are nice for sure but the red alert one I got from him had noticeable print lines and definitely weren't as smooth as nonnefs injection molded plastic
