Motto: "FOR THE EARTH!!!"
Weapon: Saber Blade
I like Red Alert's design because it's not an homage (aside from the chest and left arm). While most of the homages were great, the designs that really stood out to me were the ones that were original and unique to Animated. Prowl, Lockdown, Lugnut, Red Alert, these designs showed just how creative the show could be without having mimic every detail of a previous iteration.

They're not human stereotypes, they're video game character parodies. :lol:
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
