The character born from a BotCon 2013 comic error may finally be getting his first figure in Generations Selects! And, appropriately, we're learning about this possibility thanks to an error on Hasbro's part. When Hasbro Pulse first listed the upcoming Combat Megatron figure they accidentally gave the package content for a figure that is decidedly not Megatron.

Includes: Voyager Class Decepticon Red Wing figure, 2 weapon accessories, and instructions.

The page has been since updated with the correct contents; "Generations Selects Combat Megatron figure".

So why is this a big deal and who even is Red Wing anyway? Well for starters he was supposed to be an orange Seeker as the original incarnation of Hotlink in a collaboration between BotCon and Japan's e-Hobby which was going to contribute a new Sunstorm figure, both using the Classics Seeker mold. That plan would fall through and the name Hotlink would be given to the purple Rainmaker figure that same year. However, a cameo for the unnamed orange bot was planned for the BotCon 2013 comic in homage to their original plan, but after printing the character turned out red! And thus, Red Wing was born, though he wouldn't receive a name until fans spotted him in the comic and wanted to know who he was.

And it didn't end there. He would surface multiple times over the years, including a Japanese Kre-O comic and a character in the Transformers Legends game. Despite a strong fan demand a figure has remained elusive all these years. Could Red Wing finally be getting his first figure, likely a repaint of Siege Voyager Starscream? Time will tell. For now, let us know what you think in the Energon Pub forums below!

Absolutely yes. That is not just a typo you don't accidentally type such a very specific name instead of Megatron. It will be coming out question is when.

I thought that Megatron would come with a mini red wing not that Red Wing was a voyager figure.

Depending on how his colors look, he may be a good addition to my general display for a Tetrajet triad as I don't intend to pick up Siege Starscream, but probably will pick up Thundercracker and Skywarp as I don't have proper voyagers for them and like the Tetrajet look

Well, Idk how happy others are for this, but when I was still in the RPG on this site I came up with a whole profile for Redwing and his personality, and he even has a conjunx (another seeker called Amethyst). So this is super amazing news if this is true. I made him a very "calm, cool, and collected" type character who was very suave, well trained in weapons and battle tactics, and also a paint detailer in his spare time. He was formerly one of the seekers who was involved in the construction of more seekers. Anyways, this guy would be amazing if this is the case. Even if they do make him a different type of personality than my take, I'll go by my own headcanon.

Art looks like the classics figure. That’s what I’m hoping for.

it's weird how they gotta keep creating seeker repaints like there weren't enough of them at the very start as it was.

The art the article used is official art posted likely on the TFCC twitter for the character years ago, it is not related to the current rumored figure aside from being the same character. The actual figure will probably be a redeco of Siege Starscream.

I like the idea of more seekers but as i'm trying to keep my collection a bit more streamlined these days that and i'm not a biggest fan of the final siege seeker product.

Happy for those that wanted him. if they do more i hope they keep Nacelle a mix between standard seeker and the thrust/conehead.

If it’s true then I’ll definitely pick him up.

I hope they get around to a Hotlink colored seeker... and maybe a welcoming committee and/or rainmaker set for a convention. Reliving the early G1 episodes is what I think we're interested in for this line, and while I like the notion of a new character... I'd hate it to bump someone out of the slot.

Thinking about this, I do hope they can use Pulse as an avenue to squeeze in a few new original characters. I'm sure a lot of people are getting their fill of prime and bee.

The only entry they discussed was Megatron. Nothing else was discussed regarding the line from all I can tell following the event. I too think this is a super cool line and I look forward to seeing more from it.


Hey o supreme, I forgot we now have a rumor of voyager red wing in this line.


No worries...so would this likely be a red repaint of the Siege Voyager Starscream? It's an interesting name, considering the Marvel character of the same name (Falcon's actual bird companion reimagined as a drone in the MCU)I still think he should have had an actual bird...

Yeah, thats what it would be if it were truly happening. And I too would have liked him ot have a real bird, but i can see what they are going for.

Technically it's a trademark-friendly "Decepticon Red Wing". ;)

Looks like Selects Siege Combat Hero Megatron should start shipping out today for those that ordered over the weekend. I just got my shipment notification and should have it in hand tomorrow.

Now the wait is on to see how much longer Ricochet and Red Swoop are going to be. And if the Siege wave 2 deluxes from HTS are really going to be shipped April 1st.

Odd, I never took the time to notice on Pulse the Combat Hero Megatron was actually an in-stock item, not just a pre-order. It's a little disappointing they did not get Red Swoop and Ricochet out first, but oh well...hopefully all in good time.
