Just up on the Asia SNS is new video showing us the Transformers Robot Enhanced Design (RED) toys are still a thing with some in-hand shots of the Grimlock figure. The non-transforming figures are looking better and better with each wave. Check out the images thanks to @破坏大帝
How is Trashmaster for a couple dollars off a scalper buster but Magnus Studio has 75$ for a few days but nothing ?
Damn, almost six months later. I didn't even remember this.
Seems I was right though, the did design it differently than the rest of the line. Almost like they're really trying to course correct with this one. It's quite a bit figure too. I wonder if they'll be going back to redo some of the figures that aren't quite in scale like Bumblebee. Maybe do it the Marvel Legends way and have smaller figures fill a wave with larger figures like this to offset the costs. They do that with the Generations line to an extent already so why not with RED too?
It's just so odd for a company that has so many divisions all doing mostly the same shit to not seem to communicate with the others. The Overwatch, GI Joe and Power Rangers designs are better in some aspects than the vast majority of Marvel Legends. So why not try to work some of those design choices into ML since Overwatch is gone from Hasbro now? Nope. Why not try to bring some of that magic to the RED line too since PR and GI Joe are in house like Transformers? Nope. They can't even use the same materials between the lines which is absolutely baffling but I digress.
That translucent red chest certainly is a choice. I mean I get it since they wanted the sword in that color and all but damn. They should've put some paint on it if this is the final look. As is, it's looking a bit like one of those KO or lesser third party Grimlock-like figures out there. It looks kind of like it's shaped after Cybertron Megatron's Cyber Key. No doofus, it's Wheeljack's head lol. It's totally Wheeljack's head.
It would've been cool if the inner chest details were modeled after PotP Grimlock's Dinobot Enigma.
Interesting. If this is RED Grimlock, it almost looks as though it's designed differently than the other G1 RED figures. It certainly looks like a better figure overall than some of the first G1 RED figures they made in any event.
