Transformers: Generations: JD.com Exclusive Voyager Class JD Red Knight
This is a weird toy. It was released under the Transformers: Generation line, but is part of the live action movie universe. It was available exclusively through JD.com, a Chinese web site. I have been looking for one since its announcement, which I believe was in September, but I haven’t seen it available anywhere until I found one at Dairycon 2019. A commercial for the toy says that JD Red Knight and Optimus Prime went to help Bumblebee when he was defeated by Lockdown. This suggests it was meant to be part of Age of Extinction since Lockdown was destroyed in the movie, though that assumes they actually gave some thought to his back story. He is remolded from Age of Extinction Voyager Class Galvatron.
JD Red Knight
JD Red Knight is remolded and repainted from Age of Extinction Voyager Class Galvatron. He has a new head, chest, and torso. I love the vehicle mode, and like it a whole lot more in these colors. They did a great job on his paint apps. In robot mode he looks fine, but even the remolds don’t change my opinion on his robot mode. It’s just average.
Overall: Given its rarity and how hard it was to find, I’m not sure its worth what I paid for it. This one is probably for completists only.
Thanks for reading!
