    I assume it's the same as Bruticus? I'm looking for an arctic Camo one myself.

    I have the G1 Combaticons, a RID set of them unopened, and a RID set opened standing next to Menasor. Honestly, his plastic seems very cheap.

    I have all 4 versions of Ruination, JP, US RID, Urban Camo, and Universe, as well as the G1 and G2 Bruticus. Of the four Ruinations, I would say go for the JP or the first US RID. Also the Urban Camo and Universe have further remolding on Movor's nosecone, whice makes it less appealing.

    Urban one looks great. Probably the best behind the original G1 paint job.

    I have all versions except for the Battle Gaia set. It's my favorite combiner and I highly recommend it.

    Urban is my favorite set. The desert camo just doesn't look right. The US RID one is okay and the CR Baldigus is cool in yellow. But go for Urban if you have a choice.

    The amusing thing about the universe desert camo one is it comes with the TV accurate combiner parts, though the gray set looks the best out of the parts

    I own the RID version, and I have 3 of the 5 G2 pieces... I love the 'horrible' camouflage paint scheme on him! I love them both... Bruticus' mold is excellent!

    Personally, I like the original RID release the best. G1 Bruticus did not have a matching color scheme on the team members. Since I only wanted them because they are basically a reissues. If we can't have G1 colors, then this mixed up set is the closest we've gotten so far.

    What still gets me to this day, is why they just didn't make one in the the G1 colors.

    I even asked Aaron Archer at OTFCC '03 when we could expect a reissue. Seeing as how they were releasing it in so many different paint schemes, the original colors just seemed too easy. It was funny because he gave me that deer-in-the-headlights look as though he'd never thought of it and the idea was so stupid he couldn't believe I did. *shrugs*

    I love that mould. I have my original G1 from when I was a kid, a sealed set of the Euro G1 Classic release, CR Baldigus, 2 MOSC parts of RID Ruination, and Urban Camo Ruination. Out of the rereleased versions, I'd go for Urban Camo. It looks extremely badass combined.
