Some one suggested the RED was redecod. Though Im struggling to think what vaguely G1 $20 Megatron and Soundwave could be redecoed.
The only range those two characters exist in that's close to that price bracket is the Cyberverse Warrior Class. Soundwave has yet to be announced for Cyberverse Deluxe.
And it's been extremely rare when Hasbro has ever crossed lines like that, putting molds from the kids line under a Generations banner. So while it's not impossible for these to be cyberverse warrior/deluxes, it's still improbable.
However that's the only guess I got. But "red" meaning "redeco" sounds more likely that these two being recolored red.
If they are hate plague-themed then that's very unfortunate timing... although I do likewise suspect that does indeed just mean "redeco". Although I am also likewise buggered if I can think what it might be. I think the only thing we can be sure of is that they won't be anything as exciting as what we were hoping for...
But just to fuel the disappointment, here's my most ridiculous idea... okay actually it's not, it's Toph's... they're the Siege cars repainted as the Gobot versions of Megatron and Soundwave! Which, I know, aren't G1, they're G2, but when has that ever stopped Hasbro from mis-labelling anything?
It certainly won't be, but it's the best idea I can steal at short notice.
6 inch figures from Hasbro, launches with Optimus & Megatron
When it comes to high-quality figures, Star Wars has its Black Series, Marvel has its Legends Series, and now Transformers are getting their own line of 6-inch figures by way of Hasbro's new R.E.D. Series.
The "Robot Enhanced Design" Series figures come with interchangeable parts and accessories.
And before anyone comes out with the tired BUT THEY DON'T TRANSFORM THAT SUXXO5 there are EIGHT transforming TF lines currently on the go: Rescue Bots Academy, Cyberverse, Earthrise, Selects, W*NC, Bot Shots, Masterpiece, Studio Series. Plus the reissues from time to time and special releases such as Ectotron.

No they don't. The Elite Action Masters didn't. And they could transform!
I think an Action Master is just a Transformer (or ex-Transformer) who has been changed / enhanced / screwed up (delete as applicable) by Nucleon in some way.
These new toys can't transform, but that doesn't necessarily mean the characters they represent can't transform, unless the accompanying story says so. I suspect they are just toys representing a single mode of a character with multiple modes. But I may be wrong!
Little is known about this goblin beyond its dual role as an offensive weapon and teapot.
