colourway name

What is the actual name for the Red/Soviet colorway?

I thought that it was actually called the "Red Under The Bed" set. Oh, you mean the colorway. Dunno, I think it has multiple names. At one point, Ash said that these were the same thing as the Big Red colorways, back during the WWRp LM release. -- TiredChildren 02:13, 22 April 2010 (EDT)
Ash called it "Red Under the Bed" and both "Under the Bed Red," but says the official names are on the releases and promos, etc.. Regarding the colourway, he said that a Big Red was coming but then released Kruschev Memorial Guard (in the Under the Bed Super Pack) and said it was different but would please Big Red fans. I anticipate the differences are that it's a different unit but still a Russian platoon (similar to the differences seen between the original Desert Combat colourway and the 666th Desert colourway. -- Ennui 02:19, 22 April 2010 (EDT)
I am guessing that we are wanting to give every colorway its own page, so do we go more general for that page and include all the Russian bots, or have separate pages for them (which makes sense for the Desert Combat and 666th)? This seems to be the trickiest part for when they have subtle differences.--WhenForeverComesCrashing 02:47, 22 April 2010 (EDT)
I was thinking give each colourway its own page. I think Kruschev Memorial Guard would be just as different from Big Red as 666th is from Desert Combat (of course, saying that without having seen it, but I don't think Ash would name it differently if not for good reason). Then we could put all bots of that colourway underneath that variant's page. --Ennui 03:37, 22 April 2010 (EDT)
I don't have a link to the actual quote, but Ash said that the Big Red bots are part of the Kruschev Memorial Guard. Let's see if I can find it. Ah, found it: [1] He said, "big red is a part of the guard." -- TiredChildren 22:56, 25 April 2010 (EDT)
Yeah, but until we see the colourway, we can't assume they will look the same. Ash even clarifies [2] that the Russian legion is large. So even though they're part of the same nation/guard/whatever, they are still likely two separate colourways. Also, it seems to me like we should call it Under the Bed Super Pack since that's the official name used on the promo image. Of course, if the printed name on the box is different, that would be what we would go with. --Ennui 23:10, 25 April 2010 (EDT)
Good call on the name. I had assumed that "Red Under the Bed" was the official name since that's the first thing that he said, but I'd agree that a graphic used for the sale on the site would probably be more correct. -- TiredChildren 23:24, 25 April 2010 (EDT)
Conversation reposition. Well now that we've seen it, we know very well that Kruschev Memorial Guard is its own colourway and that Big Red is being released as Retailer Exclusive. Whatever the official packaging says is what we'll change the name to. Ennui 16:38, 6 November 2010 (EDT)
