    I’m surprised they are bringing up RID 01. The most neglected series.

    Voted for Optimus in both categories.

    I never watched RID but I had yellow RID Prime as a kid and loved it. Hot Shot was a close second also because I had him as a kid, the translucent version.

    On the flipside, I loved watching Armada as a kid but the Optimus toy was nothing more than a dream to kid me. So Legacy wins the cake without even trying, the fact that it's a great figure just makes the choice that much easier.

    I voted Armada Optimus, who I don't have but deserves it

    And LandFill, who I think is definitely behind Railracer in popularity, but my other favorite was Ultra Magnus....tough choice.

    Landfill was very special for me.

    Skybite is sweeping...

    Sky-Byte is EASILY the best character in RiD.

    Super Fire Convoy is the best toy.

    The Spychangers are the best type of toy.

    And X-Brawn is the toy I personally have the most nostalgia/love for.

    Assuming the pole is generally about character I voted Sky-Byte.


    -ZacWilliam, for Legacy I went Devcon. There's a couple that could beat it maybe but I don't have them yet to judge.

    Pretty damn sure Sky Bite has the win in the bag regardless of how I vote. So I voted Ruination.

    Voted Tarn for figure as he's the best of those I own.

    Speedbreaker (Sideburn) and Lioconvoy (Leo Prime)....almost did Needlenose though because he is one of the most perfect updates I have ever owned. Speedbreaker has an excess of personality, and is quirky enough to hold my interest as a character. No Autobot since has rubbed up on red sports cars on the freeway, nor claimed to have been a tricycle when he was young. This guy is pure gold.
    Lio was always an awesome design for a lead character, and the new toy does a lot of things better than the first.

    I want to vote for everyone from RID, but my heart will always belong to Sky-byte. Runner-up picks would've been Ultra Magnus, Scourge, the Autobot combiners, and the Predacon trio.

    Armada Optimus was an easy pick, though. Best toy from Legacy hands down.
