This is just an honest thread, and I don't really think that there's a lot of negative discussion that can come from just talking about the subject straight out. And, with that: The thread title is pretty to-the-point. It seems like, for the most part, people here think that RID isn't up-to-snuff with the FE line, and honestly, that's ok. However, waht I'm wondering is, is that if there was no FE line to begin with, would people think that the RID line is better than they do? For me, my favorite three from the RID line are by far Megatron, Soundwave, and Wheeljack. They're all just awesome frickin' figures. At the same time though, they're also the three that don't have FE toys to compare to. It's a bit of a head scratcher though, because I don't know what the FE line could have done "better" on those three outside of maybe Megatron's color? With Prime and CJ though, my thought is that these toys would be looked at a helluva' lot better if there wasn't the FE line to compare to. Sure, CJ's arms would still be long, and Optimus would have the "cape", but I definitely think they'd be looked at as good, even if not great, if the FE toys weren't there. Another thing that's kind of odd is that, like I said above I don't see the FE line having done anything better with Soundwave, Wheeljack, and Megs, but the general consensus is that FE line is "better" because they have better versions of 2 of the 5 RID toys... that's not even half. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think that, if FE hadn't existed, RID would get a lot more praise? I really do. Also, there's no poll because I don't really see the point in it.
