    So many toys still to buy... I'm nearly there with the show cast, and most of the off-screen guys, but the weird & wonderful (not to mention expensive & elusive) repaints are next!:) :) :) :) :)

    I've become somewhat interested in RID. Would it be better to watch the Car Robots sub or American Dub?

    I've been watching the English version. You'll like it for Sky-Bytes humor.

    English it is. I was mostly curious since by the sounds of it the story/characters were slightly changed, and I had no idea if that was for better or worse.

    Alright, watched both the English and Japanese versions of the first episode. Yeah, I'd say I preferred the English.

    So I went and got my old collection put of storage just to see what was in there... so happy to find Scourge, Gigatron, Cryotek, Ruination, Energon Power (if I recall correctly) Prowl and X-Brawn, Prime, and Magnus! And still in mostly good condition! Gigs has some paint chipping on the robot head's wings. Unfortunately, Sideburn, the bullet trains, and my Brave Max accessories still elude me :( 

    Edit: can anything be done about rubber degredation aside from new tires? I'm sure I can get new tires but probably not many with "Fire Convoy" and "God Magnus" on the sidewall. Tried to post a pic but it keeps rotating.

    Omega Prime vs. Scourge and Gigatron... Garbage camera phone photos and the chrome paint is definitely starting to go, but been wanting to take this pic for a couple weeks.

    I think we re-launced RIDForever.info around that time, so created a dedicated thread for it at that time.

    I love popping in here and seeing random RID love.

    Found a RID Optimus Prime at a collector store close to me for $75. Is it worth it?

    As toys go, it's a great figure. Depends what condition it's in but that price sounds steep. I paid £25 for mine (complete & mib) about 4 years ago. I don't believe they have started to appreciate to that extent.

    Pre ordered the rerelease of God Fire Convoy today. Hoping for some bonuses. I've posted my Omega Prime in here before and it's in rough shape from chrome wear and tire splits, so the opportunity to display something mint and keep it that way is very appealing.

    Yeah I wanna say it cost me $45 at the time, so fast forward 17 years... i'm glad you were able to snag it! It's a great figure!

    Recently picked up the Takara versions of the Autobot Brothers in a lot. Both regular and Super Mode.

    Sadly Mach Alert/Prowl is decently yellowed and has a broken piece. Will need to pick up a new one eventually.

    Still, very nice to have and now my updated versions of Gelshark, Black Convoy, and Baldigus have bots to fight.
