    Thanks to Takara and Hasbro we got ourselves WfC RiD Decepticons. G2 Bruticus' deco is just so slightly off on his Foc coloration it pretty much makes him RiD Ruination.

    RiD Pride people!.

    Well I can see United Darkside Prime working as a FoC Scourge. However, the G2 FoC Bruticus deco looks NOTHING like the RiD one. I suppose the good news is that if FoC Bruticus' mold follows the trend of the G1 Bruticus molde, it'll be pimped out in virtually every color scheme imaginable by Hasbro and/or Takara. That being said, it's VERY likely the FoC Bruticus will eventually get an RID homage deco down the line.

    You could interpret them like that, but both of those decos are based on figures that predate the RiD characters.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to matching TFCC Scourge with Fansproject Colossus.

    Huh, I just found the Darkside Optimus/Megatron two-pack online for $50. That's actually not too bad...

    ...dammit. When I get a hold of the Bruticii, I'm going to have to paint one up in R.i.D. colours.

    The Wrecker deco fits better as Ruination, I think. All you have to do is swap the gestalt head. Look at the colors of the Swindle mold, Blast Off mold, Vortex mold, and all the random splotches of orange. It matches pretty good.

    I'm pretty sure that any teal and black Optimus is supposed to be a homage to Scourge.

    They're not alike. Rid Ruination is orange and green. FOC Bruticus is yellow and purple.

    Last night at work, I realized we're damn close to being able to do RID Ruintation AND Battle Gaia if we parts swap from all the different versions. That makes me happy. While we're at it, anybody notice that Swindle's head looks ALOT like Trailbreaker?

    Ummmm, the pic isn't Nemesis Prime, it's Darkside Convoy. It's also a deluxe.

    I bet it didn't. Took me a minute as well..to figure out where the mind blow was. Then I gave up and read the comments.

    G2 FoC Bruticus is based off of...G2 Bruticus!

    I think the FoC Autobot Ruination is pretty close to the RiD Ruination toy though, sans camo paint scheme for the "core" robot.

    Mine was too. There my mind was, expecting to be blown...and it wasn't. I'd say it has a pretty bad case of a blue cerebellum. Time to go "rub out" a thought.
