    I've been watching RID, and it's actually a pretty good cartoon.

    I absolutely love Sky-byte, he's just such an enjoyable character, he's the one who should have go a Universe figure,
    not that nobody Bruticus who DIDN'T appear in the show!

    I haven't watched the whole show yet, but my only complaints are the obvious
    dubbed lip-sync, and Optimus and Megatron's voices really just sound like people
    imitating their voices.

    Still a good cartoon overall.



    NOTE: I'm not sure if there is already a thread like this

    Still to this day, it's the cartoon with the most fun. There is so many good things to be said about this show. :D

    Yes finally!
    Let me tell you, this show is gold.
    Yes, some of the voices are dodgy, but if you can get over that, it's really great!
    Also some of the best toys(EVARRR) from this line.

    ^ Get them. Just get them.
    It's morally wrong to not do so.

    Is a fun series with pretty good animation and style. Works better if you approach it partly as a Transformers comedy though.
    I think there was a few months ago. But RID deserves all the love threads it can get. :)

    It was a good cartoon. Not the best, but it was good and it was fun. I liked the design of the robots, I thought it was cool how it worked the Combaticons into it, and I thought it wrapped itself up nicely. If it was on DVD, I would buy it.

    awesome show, watched it in its entirety on Youtube and if it ever came out on DVD I would so snag a set.


    Sky-byte is the bomb and I agree on his getting a universe/generations figure.

    I have always felt sorry for Kelly , the poor woman who has to put up with Sideburn perving on her cars.

    Eh. It was ok. They reused footage quite a bit, which wasn't the worst thing in the world. You just have to go into that cartoon setting the bar very low, cause it wasn't anywhere near the level of Beast Wars or Prime.

    If it wasn't for Scourge and Skybyte....no one would care about the show.

    admit it you only like it for these two guys...them and Ruination too a lesser extent.

    Pretty much. Everyone else wasn't memorable at all.

    They were highlights no doubt but nope, I'd still love it. It was a really fun show and I really liked the designs and art style.

    Loved everything about RID, it'd be great to have the whole series released on DVD or if Hasbro gave us some more updated RID toys.

    Loved Scourge and Mega Octane and the Autobot brothers too!

    Anytime Skybyte is on the screen it is bloody awesome. When he is not on the screen it is kind of boring. When the reaccuring Sideburn gag is on it blows goats.

    Though it isn't my favorite series, it did get me into Transformers. If it wasn't for RID, I wouldn't have this amazing hobby. For that, I love the show

    When I first saw RID I was disappointed with the humor and lack of similarity with G1, but it's grown on me. Scourge and Sky-byte were awesome!

    Out of all the anime series it's the least awful, and that's because of two things:

    Scourge and Sky-Byte.

    Every other character is bland or forgettable, but those two carry each episode they're in. "Sky-Byte saves the day" FTMFW.
