    Just got this guy today.

    He was a left over from Beast Machines, right? Uh, so what's the deal? Feels like there's a lot of stuff left out of the RID instructions. You know, he's got like 50 faces that aren't even mentioned, weird gun/blade things in his back legs that are ignored and all other kinds of crazy crap. Has anyone figured out what his different modes actually are?

    I believe RID Bruticus was the inspiration for every single Transformers movie design.

    the extra parts are for a four armed robot mode. Those are the lower arms.

    I didn't care if mine's transformed right or not, as long as the bastard could stand and stay in the back. He's a jumbled, mysterious pile of squishy, colorful plastic so I dunno

    I'm looking at pictures of him, and I can't even tell what the hell he is.

    Ironicly when I actually bought the toy on junkion exchange I thought I was also getting ruination.

    This figure does look cool though. Even if his odd joints can be brick up the play value.

    And when I got ruinnation a week later 100% complete. On ruination's ziplock bag its previous owner wrote "RID Bruticus" in black marker.

    Hasbro's misuse of that name will continue to confuse transformer collectors for at least another ten years.
