That Transformers RED Series seems to be playing for keeps with Hasbro going all out on releases from various eras. We found a listing on Walmart.com for a Transformers Prime Knockout. Not only does it mean we are getting a Knockout action figure but it also confirms that the previous Arcee listing was indeed for Prime Arcee. Now while that can be exciting for some, it can also be infuriating to others that would have loved such a line of various fan favourite characters from across different generations, but that transformed. We will also be getting a redeco of Optimus Prime and the listing has it literally named "Redeco Optimus". A G1 Starscream listing was also found. Below are the three links to these toys:

This lune is getting more and more interesting.

Still hoping for a G1 Bludgeon and Thunderwing.

Oh, my bad... Wish they could figure out how to come up with something like a label that said, "Coming soon"...

Also, any guesses on the Prime redeco?
Nemesis?
"Death of..." (which would seem pointless to have posable dead Prime)?
Battle-damaged?

I'm not even the biggest fan of him, but this is where we could get a great version of Blitzwing.
And I know this might drive some people crazy, but I'd love a set of all of the Constructicons.
They are such classic characters.

Red optimus was going to my main prime but I think netflix wave 2 has won out. Knock out and arcee will likely be my buys from the line, I never picked up that many prime figures with animated not having the full run of figures/exclusives/japanese/first release headaches of trying to complete.just hoping for some scaling in the figures rather than them all being the same size.

Good scaling is a really valid point... Not to mention, why not, and then give us something like a two-pack of Rumble and Ravage. Or heck, make a two pack of Bumblebee and Cliffjumper priced at $30.
Wishful thinking with 2 packs, but if these are supposed to be really show accurate, then they can't make Bee as tall as Prime, Megatron, and Soundwave... Unfortunately, he could still cost $20. Which bothers me no matter how many extras he comes with.

A set of six combining Transformers who not only can't transform but also can't combine? Sure, that'll sell well. :P

I'd rather have the full team with the missing members, all transformable.

Still, I'd be down for RED Animated figures. Sari Sumdak being top priority. "Robot", teen, and child versions in a 3 pack.

Unless I missed it, I still haven't seen the Prime Arcee.

Seriously, the original line of Prime figures need a reissue to atone for the non-existent distribution. All I can find are $100 first editions or ugly ass "Beast Hunters" remakes.

You haven't missed it. All we've seen is a listing but no pics of the figure yet.

Good fan art of Sari are rare.

Anyway, the toys would be 100% show accurate, of course.

Well I’ll be damned. Between WFC: Kingdom and R.E.D confirming multiple eras, it seems Hasbro is actually acknowledging the other facets to the TF mythos.

Fair, but a whole lot of these G1 characters didn't have a ton of personality. "Iconic"?
Very very few would ever fit this descriptor, even relative to a kid's cartoon.
Devastator himself didn't add some multi-faceted emotional spectrum to TF's, and yet he'll always be one of the most popular combiners.
Do people really think these toys are collected based more on personality than appearance???
Hmmm...

So agree to disagree, but I'm not using the label of "classic" based on depth of character.

Whether you (meaning anyone) are in favor of non-transforming figures or not, it's also not completely ridiculous in the grand scheme to think they'd eventually give one figure to each of these 6 characters. Whether in multi-packs, as exclusives, etc.
I mean seriously... This idea is that outrageous compared to some of the other obscure and wishful-thinking wants of some collectors?? Pshhhh. That's laughable.

Kinda reminds me of the time someone seriously went off about "how dumb I was" for thinking they'd ever make the Classics seekers as regular releases after the BotCon set... And yet within that next year or so..........
This isn't to suggest I really think Constructicon R.E.D. figures are coming. But to put it out there as an idea isn't completely irrational either.

The R.E.D. line exists... Someone with some sort of business savvy thinks it's a good idea, with making money the bottom line.
Not to mention, these aren't just statues, or even figures like in the ReAction line that have articulation made for 4 year olds, are 2"+ shorter, only $2 cheaper, and look 10x worse.

If these are that off-putting to you, cool, bros.
Good for you for saving money for all of those awesome transforming figures.

The only way they'll get figures of their own (I think it's more likely we'll see a Devastator in RED then individual constructicons) is if the line does well enough to warrant their inclusion. Basically just vote with your wallet

Agreed. Unfortunately I also only see Devastator happening if the line does really well. But who knows, if Hastak thinks it'll make money, an exclusive could be possible.
Here's my fear; I think the R.E.D. line is the wrong line to expand into BW, Prime etc....
I want as many fans as possible to get what they want, but I don't feel overly confident that G1 characters are going to sell that well.
And I see BW and Prime characters being peg/shelf warmers, making the chances of the line going very deep for any series less likely.
