    Oh I'm all in for this one! RiD is what got me back into collecting.

    No pictures handy, but Prime, Scourge, the Car Brothers and Rail Racer are still some of my all time favorite TFs. I still maintain that they're better than most toys released in the lines after it. Such awesome engineering, articulation and ORIGINALITY.

    i just bought RiD hotshot. Sure its a tiny fig but still really cool looking. Prolly the closest thing we'll ever get to a Universe cartoon.

    i still keep Rail Racer on display. awesome combiner and also, pays homage to Raiden. Actually i have the Car Brothers in a seperatedisplay just for them. well not display but they are visiable. the shelf above them has the vanguard team.

    Prowl's weapon is still a favorite just wish it was a more solid gun.

    I keep Railracer, omega prime, and car brothers on display.

    Id really like to find this series on dvd. The inclusion of so many franchises was awesome.

    kinda funny how the brickformers pwn'd the newer highly articulated TFs.

    I don't own any as of yet. To be honest, I didn't like most of the designs.

    However, the characters I plan to got are Megatron, and The Predecons trio. Ultra Magnus was a close to add, but I looked at the pictures, and didn't like his super long feet. And Sky-Byte is too big for my taste.

    how i wish i could post pics right now ....
    this reminds me of something i saw on TF wiki ... it was in the autobot wiki page and there was a pic of optimus with alot of autobots with the caption of, "IMCOMPETANT FOOLS! There's like 50 of and & of them and we havent won this war yet?" that mostly applies to RID which had something like 20 autobots, 2 of which were combiners, 4 had super modes, and one of those 4 was OP who combined with UM. yet it still took how long to win?

    The caption was to be exact: "Incompetent fools! There's only like seven Decepticons and fifty of us!"

    And yes, it took them that long just to save Koji's father and after that they got a plot.
