We have some incredible new images of the exclusive Transformers Generations Selects Redwing. Iamnofire has the toy in hand and has gone all out on taking images of it in both modes. This gives us our best look yet at the deco in alt mode. The gallery was posted on the Transfans Facebook page.
The standard price will be $29.99 but it is not certain exactly who will be carrying him at that price. Hasbro Pulse is the most likely bet.

I kind of hate its smirking face.

My main question is what stand is that in the pictures? It looks great for Decepticons.

Lovely pictures btw, and if this guy retails for $30, that would be awesome. If only they did that with Skywarp... :-(

I like it, it makes me think that he's the Decepticon version of tracks, totally in love with himself (more so then screamer), the slick paint job enforces it

But it fits his "devil may care" attitude so much better than the blank face Starscream got.

If anything, both Starscream and Red Wing should have the smirking face while Thundercracker should have gotten the blank face.

I was interested. I don't have this character or mold.

But after seeing these pics, the tetrajet mode looks about as aerodynamic as my car keys. It's a jet with a giant block of legs tacked on underneath it.

Easy pass.

Not sure if I'm getting him or not, but he looks cool.

I've considered swapping the heads. So far it looks to be more trouble than it's worth but maybe someone will reverse engineer and share how they do it when the time comes.

Man, he looks great, I love the sharp color scheme on him and have no problem thinking of him as a reincarnation of armada 'scream

Do you need to be aerodynamic in space?

In space no one can hear your drag, but they can sure as shit see your knees.

Bumb. Anyone?

Looks a lot like this, only purple.

I actually prefer Screamer to have the blank face for serious poses. One of the drawbacks to bots with facial expressions is you're stuck with that expression and it may not fit all situations. So in my case I rather Starscream look all business with his thugs (that actually do the dirty work) having the mischievous looks.

The thing is, G1 Starscream has an ego big enough to bludgeon Fort Max with, so he usually is smirking. That or making an "Oh slag I'm gonna die" face. So the smirk head suits him a LOT more than it does the much more dour and usually neutral/frowning Thundercracker.

Agreed. I've said it at least twice before, I think HasTak accidentally swapped Screamer and Thundercracker's headsculpts. I had originally been pondering just getting TC since I already had PotP Screamer, but now I want to get Screamer too.

Hard pass as I'm already going be $90 $110 in on Siege Seekers.

I will say that is one sharp ass deco though and would jump if it happens to sell poorly and hits the e-discount bins (which is where all the select figures have fallen on my radar so far).


EDIT: oops, forgot about Smokescreen - that dude's on lock down ;)^

Smokescreen isn't a Seeker :P

Hence why a lot of fans are just planning to do a head swap between Starscream and Thundercracker. A few people are theorizing that the faces were originally supposed to be distributed like that, but something (as it often does) got confused during production.

I doubt it was a mix up, wouldn't the first renders have had swapped faces?

I just took a look at the back of Starscream's head. Looks like it's going be a bear to swap though. The ball looks pretty big with the possibility of breaking the stem or part of the head. Well good luck and may the plastic gods be on whomever's side ;)^

After examining my Starscream, I abandoned the idea. Unless somebody does a thread on how they do/did it.

It's not on my radar, but the only safe option seems to be taking the torso apart (if that is even possible). I'm too lazy to transform mine to check for screws. He does have screws in his "butt flaps" though.

I used to reassemble G1 Megatrons from parts. I don't want any parts of this Starscream.

The render having the neutral head doesn't rule out wires getting crossed, IMO. To me, it suggests that the assembled figure the render was modeled off of used the wrong head and/or the render used the wrong head and the production toys followed suit because they used the render as a reference. Or maybe both were going off the same faulty note as to which head was whose.

It's definitely possible for renders to use the wrong head - just look at PotP Hun-Gurrr and how two of his on-package renders have the head blanked out because they used the Snaptrap/Turtler headsculpt instead (I mean, what else could it be?).

The strikethrough and the edit to add Smokescreen made it look to me like you were adding his price to the total. I guess I was wrong :oops:


EDIT: Regarding swapping the heads: What about carefully prying the front of the head away from the back?

I thought he meant $110 for the Seeker trio, since Skywarp will be $50 ($30+$30+$50=$110)

About swapping the head, so far only one guy has posted a picture on Reddit about how he succeeded in removing Screamer's head, but knowing Reddit, I will just have to keep digging to find that >:oP

If you can't swap it, I don't really care honestly. I didn't care about my ROTF Leader Prime's eyes being green, and I am not about to care about who has the smirk. The mold is great, fun, and has way too many positives for me to care about one feature on its face.
