    So awhile back I purchased what was listed as a 99% complete RID Rail Racer combiner figure off eBay. Unfortunately when I received it, I discovered that Rapid Run’s head (and cockpit glass) had been broken off and were completely missing. The photos on eBay only showed the combined form, and I would have thought something like a missing head would have been called out (as I assumed it was just missing accessories.). Even though it didn't effect combined mode, it always bothered me so I decided to attempt to fix it. I wasn't a huge fan of the yellow/gold on the original head, so I went with a simple black version.

    That is toy-wise my all-time favorite combiner. You did it justice
