I don't really see the need of the anime color repaint, to be honest. What's wrong with the original repaint?

Well, for starters, the original had its thighs in the wrong color (red instead of white).

I will probably pick this up since I don't have the original MP-14 in my collection. If they do more of these like Wheeljack, I will most likely pass. I doubt I would buy the same character twice unless they do a complete remold like they did with Optimus Prime & Hot Rod.

I think it's fine for those who don't already have these in their collections. Go ahead and release new versions. I, personally, however am happy with the one that I have. If recolors help bring the cost of licensing down, I'm all for it, too :-)

I think he looks kinda nice - the only thing I'm especially disappointed by is the covered over headlamps.

I approve of the white upper legs and the bi-coloured launcher too.

I agree with earlier posters that the shoulders would have been nicer if they'd used the Sideswipe version of the mould there.

(Was there ever a KO of the Alert toy that used Sideswipes Mould ? if there was i'd buy it with pleasure over any other version those should wheels always looks really strange to me).

In fact it cause many a blazing row at the time the toy first came out.

I have a 3rd party Inferno now so I suppose I really should consider getting some sort of Red 'Alert' toy to complement him.

Always really liked the toy - boy was I made of disappointment when I saw what a totally unlikable character he was in the cartoon.

He's not even obnoxious in a likeable way like Sunstreaker or Tracks are.

I thought it was worth sharing, someone customised a KO of the original MP Red Alert..

It can't transform though.

Loved Red on the show!

He looks sharp. Hopefully still in stock for most online retailers by Christmas. :D

I suppose that would be the case. Not really digging the more simple Autobot sigil. I kind of prefer my toys to not be too] screen accurate. :BOWDOWN:

If some 3P made a set of clip on doors for this 14+, I'd buy them in a heartbeat.

Red Alert is the first Masterpiece figure to get the "plus" treatment with Takara releasing a MP 14+ edition which is made to match the cartoon deco as close as possible. He is out now and several images have popped up all over facebook. Logan has sent several out way coming from Hobbybase, Photo vaut and UranusDD facebook pages. The ones from Uranusdd ofer a comparison with the initial Red Alert release. The change from white to grey paint is most apparent there and it gives us the best idea of how different both decos are. Which of you will be getting this new version, let us know!

The only things that really catch my interest are the full black shoulders and the 'chief' on the side of the arm.

The grey legs are nice, but ultimately Red never stuck out in the 'toon for me much and I think the red legs on MP14 add more 'pop'. All the other deco choices on this 14+ just flatten the figure. I don't like this new trend of making MP's that look like PVC figures. :shock:

Red Alert was awesome in the show and this hits every Sunbowish detail. IF I had the cash to collect masterpiece figures, this would be a must buy. I would be down for every Sunbow G1 + deco. Even the shade of colour of white looks better, much cooler.

Am I the only one who would have preferred a Toon deco rather than a toon accurate deco. I will explain. Instead of giving him the deco that he was in the toon in the Plus line, I would have preferred a deco that would make him look like he was in the cartoon. Kinda like this:

Image

So for isntance with red alert, his body would be grey but with some added darker grey highlights to mimic shadow:

Image

I mean if they are going for too accurate, why not go all out. I would buy the hell out of a line based on that kind of deco!

I would be all kinds of down for a cell shaded style of MP

I've seen those kinds of customs. Pretty brilliant. But if it's that versus what the Plus line is doing, I'd go for the Plus.

That customiser is clearly very talented, but tbh I don't like it.

Also, I don't see the point in painting them with fake shadows and highlights. The toys are actual objects, they have real shadows and highlights already..

That is seriously gorgeous, and the appropriate kind of cartoon accurate; I'd go so far as to say that that would forever more be the definitive G1 Prime figure
