When the RID toys came out, I thought to my self "now THESE are perfect - vehicle TFs with Beast Wars toys articulation". Then in Armada, it seems they completely abandoned the concept by bringing back the funky, unrealistic looking vehicles and such - it was a drastic change. Looking the movie toys now,it looks like Hasbro/Takara is returning to the Car Robots/RID concept. Then I just realized that the RID toys are the most articulated car TFs ever, and that Bay and Co. probably noticed that. I know that some of the post-RID toys are very articulated, but they're blocky, and much harder to animate than the RID brothers, for example. So they based their work in the RID designs and took a step further by eliminating the "shellformer complex" that the RID cars had. I wasn't sure about what to think about these movie designs until now. They're just what I was looking for back in 2001: the next step after RID. What do you guys think?
