    Besides Scourge and Ruination, are there any other cool RID Transformer toys worth buying?

    I find Prowl, Sideburn, and X-Brawn as fun figures. As well as the Predacon figures in the line.

    Almost every RiD original mold is worth owning too. Except maybe Bruticus (the cerberus thingy)? I heard he was kinda lame.

    Nice to see someone using RID in the right context for a change.

    Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus and Rail Racer are the definite winners of the line. I'm a huge fan of the Landfill combiner team as well. The Car Brothers aren't the best toys, but they are damn fun and I'm glad they're in my collection!

    **Edit** Just looked through the Resources section and realized that I completely forgot that Megabolt Megatron was released in RiD! I have him displayed with my Beast Machines figures, but he's an awesome figure as well!

    The Optimus Prime in this line is perhaps my favorite post-G1 incarnation of Optimus. I really like his transformation and he looks good in either robot mode. Optimus functions great as a stand alone figure even without Ultra Magnus.

    After Optimus, Prowl is my 2nd favorite. I just find him fun to transform.

    every single original mold for the line is great.

    everything else is also great.

    If it was in the show, buy it. Spychangers are the only things that are a bit lacking, being really simple.

    Ultra Magnus
    Optimus Prime
    Prowl
    Sideburn
    X-Brawn
    Sky-Byte
    Landfill

    Agreed. The only toy I intentionally skipped was the Supreme Optimus Primal. Everything else was awesome.

    The RiD line is one of the few lines I actually own every single toy of. If you were to ask me what the best toys from the line is, I'd say it's the Fire Convoy / Optimus Prime toy and the God / Ultra Magnus guys. Really creative and inventive engineering with those guys. A second runner up for that line would be the Autobot Brothers. Just be careful, the rubber tires can have a tendency to split on you after ten or so years. They can be glued back together, but it's still noticeable.

    Yeah, I especially like Slapper & Night Scream.


    Also, Cryotek is probably one of my favorite toys ever, so there we have it. :)

    The only set I have from this line is Omega Prime (Optimus + Ultra Magnus) and I fucking love him.
