    I'd definitely recommend it, as it's a neat toy, but go for one of the versions that has a cohesive colour scheme, like the Wal-Mart-exclusive yellow version or the Target-exclusive "Constructicon" version.

    Do it!!!!

    Combiners are usually good figures to have especially since you can make different combinations with the limbs and the articulation is really well.

    I like it, myself. I have Build King, Landfill and yellow Landfill. If you have a chance, get the Devastator version, though. I don't have it, but the colors on it are the best out of all 4 versions, I think. The separate figures themselves are all really good except for maybe Grimlock/Build Hurricane/Scavenger. He's pretty weak. The arms suck on that one, although it's pretty good otherwise.

    If you can get the whole combiner for less than 30 bucks, it's totally worth it.

    I had it and sold it because I was afraid the red guy and the yellow guy would break (something about their feet or something?)

    I'd buy it again if the later versions fixed the problem.

    He makes for great Constructicon parts.

    He's good. Not the best combiner (Rail Racer still takes that title), but the idea of having different layouts for the combined mode is cool. Not amazingly posable as a combined robot, but still suitably big and imposing, lots of weapon options and decent arm movement. The individual figures are mostly good, with the aforementioned Grimlock being a little weak. Overall, a good set and shouldn't cost you too much.

    Get it. The RID combiners are some of my favorite TF pieces that aren't BT's or MP's.

    I have the Green Target Devestator version and he is awesome.

    How tall is it? All the figures it's made of are deluxes right?

    Its about as tall as an Ultra figure. It is made up of 4 deluxe figures.

    Wedge is really more the size of a Scout.

    I was never all that fond of Rail Racer. Mine wouldn't balance right, so I'd try to like it and whatnot and end up pissed.
    But someone thought it would be cool to sell it for the price of a deluxe. :(

    Probably comes from Hasbro wanting to be able to sell things at set pricepoints. I don't think there was anything else in RID (sold individually) that was Scout size.
