    Hey all,

    With this year marking the 10th anniversary of RID, and the high possibility of the new RTS G2 Prime being redone as Black Convoy/Scourge, name ONE other RID character would you like to see redone in Generations.

    the toys were great, so if they are going to do that might as well just release the original toys lol

    but if not, i'd love to see some classics repainted as RID characters. like red alert as prowl *i'd prefer super prowl!* repaint rotf brawn as xbrawn! and classic hotrod as sideburn? *blue one of course!

    I'd love new RID figures. Shame the old Car brother's moulds are cheese now.
    Why a pirate?

    as much as i enjoyed RID is it really worth celebrating a 1 year toyline? I don't remember anyone celebrating Machine Wars 10th anniversary.

    On topic though, make a new version of the build team, just so it can be redecoed into G1 devestator to deny people a proper classics version for even longer! :lol

    I'd love Car Brothers updates, but I can't imagine how they could improve on the originals.

    As long as the potential Scourge repaint of the new G2 Prime figure is a retail release, I'll be happy. There's a chance I'll be able to get a hold of the TFclub's Side Burn figure (should add that to my wants list).

    Assuming Hasbro were to homage any RID characters as a new mold, and not a repaint/retool, I would love to see them take a shot at making a new Deluxe class mold for X-Brawn. I'm ok with Side Burn being a repaint, and I could handle Prowl as a repaint, but X-Brawn deserves his individuality.

    Would have said Sky-Byte, but last year's Botcon figure would probably stop Hasbro from updating him themselves, for a while anyways.

    Sky-Byte, he's a great character. Plus the figure could be repainted into a new Beast Wars Cybershark.

    So new Predacon and possible Maximal in my collection.

    it would be cool to have new figures of both leaders (megatron-optimus) or maybe just re-releases of them... with new molds of other 3 figures of each team (predacon trio and autobot brothers) and of course the "please no japan exclusive" black repaint of generations g2 laser prime :p

    Agreed.


    In fact if they did them now, you may get substantially less of a toy for the same price.

    Funny to read this thread now as I sit at work with my RID Rail Racer and the three Car Brothers on my desk! I Love RID and I would take an updated to Skybyte myself as well as Gas Skunk, Slapper and Darkscream.


    I think so yes because while RID may have been only a 1 year line, it was a the line the brought a lot of people back into Transformers. It was also the line that brought the Autobots and Decepticons back. It was the bridge from Beasties back to Machines and IMO it resonated in the fandom. We do have a subsection of RID forever and indeed TFW2005 was founded around when Car Robots in Japan was aired. So yes, I think it's worth it.

    Well, the RID toys were already super awesome, so if anything they could just reissue the toys, perhaps making the rubber wheels plastic? I hate that the tires are disintegrating off of my Omega Prime.

    In fact I'd definitely shell out for that Japan TRU box set of God Fireconvoy with the master(?) sword. And I dont really care if it hurts the resale value of existing sets :D

    yeah i dont really know how they could improve on any of the toys by making "new versions"

    aside from repainting RTS G2 Prime into Scourge colors


    the line was pretty darn amazing. reissue a couple figures maybe? but since i already own most of the original line dunno if id actually buy any :p

    There have been some hommages so far.
    Titanium did a RiD Prime
    TFCC Is doing a Sideburn out of Classics Rodimus

    I guess a RiD Prowl could be done from Universe Sunstreaker and Universe Ironhide could be X-Brawn.

    I wish I would have bought that set back in the say, now it's really expensive.
