Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Siege Red Alert Action FigureA retool that could have been a redeco, Red Alert also has the distinction of having at least three colorways - one of which got released, the others seem to exist only as concept art.

This figure is basically Sideswipe [FOTD #2,047] with new colors, different accessories, and a different head sculpt.

The 5-inch robot still has great articulation and lots of places to put accessories, complete with tilting ankles and about 18 joints. That ain't bad. The red helmet has a silver face and pale blue eyes that pop nicely in a dark room, and it looks a lot like the cartoon model. What's kind of weird is that the promotional images are significantly different. The original promotional renderings had additional Cybertronix on the back of the car and on the hood, plus crystal clear windows. (Also Sideswipe's head, rather than the new Red Alert nogging.) It also had weathering on the crotch. The promotional toy photography had a black light bar rather than a clear one with red painted underneath. The final toys light bar seems to look the best, though - the additional "Fire Chief" lettering would have been nice.

I love that Hasbro tooled a new blaster for this toy, and the lightbar/gun hammer is a hoot. It's very silly, but it's nice to have weird configuration options for kids and adults to muck around with, sort of like how you could have Optimus' head peeking over the truck cab or Tracks' flying car mode. If you don't like it, you can just throw the bar on his back and use the gun as a gun. Using a gun as a hammer seems dangerous.

The transformation is pretty easy, and I like it. Everything tucks in place and there's not a lot of car kibble dangling anywhere. The shins and chest open to stuff all the robot parts inside and then you've got a pretty snazzy space car.

The car has nice white plastic and red paint on the stripes (and robot helmet) that match nicely. The white paint is glossy and thick, not matching the plastic perfectly but it's certainly close enough with red spokes and nice spinning wheels. It's compact and rather small, but it fits together with minimal ugly gaps or other problems. Again, it's like Sideswipe - and the other Sideswipe - and the other Sideswipe. There's plenty to like here, it's a fun mold.

While I and most of the fandom probably have no real interest in Red Alert as a character, he makes for a great toy and some nice visual variety on the Autobot shelf you're no doubt building. If the price is right, and you like its look, Red Alert is worth your money. Get one.
