Maybe it's the lighting?

Yeah, I find that a little peculiar.

It's the lighting, combined with the teal door. The contrast makes the purple seem red.

Exactly this. Well spotted... If you shield your eyes from the teal, you'll actually see the Autobot faction symbol isn't as red as you first thought.

I really can't wait for these guys to be released! And that picture of Slugfest being Robin to Ratbat's Batman is pure genius. :D

It really kinda stinks that the first collaboration with ehobby gets a miscolored faction symbol on Blaster. Hope that gets fixed for the US release. I'm not holding my breath but I am crossing my fingers. His alt mode looks nice in those colors. Really wish they had used the Device and Music Label figures for this set. I don't want G1 figures in my Shattered Glass. It's like moving backwards. They're great toys for what they are. What they are is old though and quite overused at this point.
:BOT:

They're in G1 bodies in the fiction, so that's what they went with for the toys.

Plus, there's folks like SG Perceptor and SG Ravage whose designs were originally based on G1 toys (Magnificus and Glit, respectively). ;)

So... if this is Shattered Glass, why does evil Autobot Blaster come with Slugfest, who is originally a Decepticon in the 'regular universe'? In the Shattered Glass Universe, that would make him Heroic Decepticon Slugfest, right?

He is heroic Decepticon Slugfest. They probably just shared three random pics to show off the final look of the products. ;)

I don't think so. Check the alt mode picture again. That faction symbol is obviously red and not purple in any shade, contrast or no.

Purple is a difficult color to do properly, as it likes to shift to red in certain lighting, and on certain monitors. Let's just wait until the actual product comes out before drawing conclusions.

That's one way of looking at it, though I think that they wanted to use the G1 molds so they invented the fiction to support their use.

Considering SG Blaster appeared in fiction in his G1 body (his only body that wasn't a repaint, excluding Device Label) a few years before this set, I find that unlikely. More like a happy accident, like BotCon Soundwave ;)

It's a set of seven figures. They just took pics of these two just because. They all come together in one set, though.

Soundwave, Ratbat, and Slugfest. Blaster, Rewind, and Ramhorn. And Solarbot.

#-o Doh! I thought they were packed separately, like Encore 21 and Encore 22.
Now I remember it's all going to be one big set... Thanks for the clarification though!

This. Soundwave has switched bodies to support a modern figure (Botcon 2012 Soundwave) and/or suit a set of figures. They could have used a modern figure for whatever they wanted to do in fiction for Blaster too.

Except Soundwave had his Universe Ironhide body in fiction since 2009, a good 3 years before the toy was made. Happy accident, or deliberate future planning? You be the judge.

I'd still like to see how they're gonna explain him reverting to his original body though ;)
