Skyfall and Blaster have been gone from shelf warmers to blockbuster toys with the help of garage company Renderform. What's the next figure on Renderform's hit list? It's Red Alert! The Generations figure is finally going to get a little bit of help to differentiate itself from Sideswipe, Sunstreaker and the ongoing list of characters that have come out of the Lamborghini mold. These pictures show the first run of the set which comes a new head(either red or black), a new hand gun, and an articulated shoulder mounted blaster. These are prototype pictures, and the size of Red Alert's head has since been reduced. Check out the set below!

I never really liked the Sideswipe noggin, so I might just get a red and a black to swap them both out!

Its cool. If this was for sale I might pass. Price is deciding factor, but nice.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

Looks good. I would buy. I missed out on Skyfall. I would buy Skyfall if the guy has more maybe he could PM me.

But when I look at the red head, I see Cliffjumper. I havent seen the cartoon in a while, but I recall Red Alert having a more square head.

I'm digging it so far. The red on the handgun is a bit jarring though.

that's totally cliffjumper, not red alert... though it may make a good replacement for classics CJ

Damn you Venksta! I was perfectly happy with my Henkei Red Alert until I saw this. Gonna have to pick up one when I grab the Darkwing head (if they're still around then).

I'm still somewhat unclear on exactly how to order his stuff. I would definitely get this though.

In the past I've PMed him on TFW.

But he seems to be updating his site with order forms (click Order Page at the top of his site). He just put one up for the Blaster accessories, so I expect there'll be an order form for Red Alert in the near future.

I agree. And I think the smaller style of this head will further Red Alert look. I wonder if we will be able to get the black blaster with the red head?

yeah, it's kinda half way in between... not boxy enough for Red Alert.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I personally don't see similarities to Cliffjumper's head, except for the horns. CJ's head is more of a dome shape. Where as Red Alert's head has different parts to it. Below is a comparison to my Red Alert design to my upcoming classics Cliffjumper head. I'm thinking most people think of the similarities are due to the photos having shots from the front, as well, the red washes out details in the photo.

But some good news, for those that aren't a fan of this design. Someone has been selling a blockier Red Alert head on ebay. Its a custom based off the original Classics head. So its worth tracking down. :)

I'm really diggin' that red head! I hate how he originally just has Sideswipe's head... They could've at least used some red plastic in Generations.

They ought to make a rocket upgrade kit for Sideswipe. I like this :)

I wish ONE company would put out all of these smaller upgrades together. Like the Gears of War set.

Awesome! I'm going to have to buy another Classics CJ to sport that head mold :grin:

When I saw the Henkei version, I didn't like the head but in black I like it and don't feel it needs a headswap.

Still, interesting custom.

I do like it, but there are a few things I would change if it were up to me.

I think the head is a nice update, but it's too short and not... blocky enough. Ya, I think that's what I want to say. Secondly, the gun is too tall. Kinda looks like he's holding a frozen piece of talapia with a barrel on it. Needs to come down a bit to look like Sideswipes Flair Gun / Red's Gun.

I do however like the shoulder cannon. If it could go a little closer to his shoulder that would be great but over all I like it.

If the set was in front of me, ya I'd pick it up. But I don't think I'll go out of my way to order it.

I forgot that the prototype head was only 30 minutes of quick modeling. Been spending the last couple days refining the shape, when I've had time. Heres a CG render of how it looks. The refined head is on the left, the prototype version is on the right.

I like this. I'll be getting the red head version for sure.
