RUINATION AWAKENS! And so does Unite Warriors Baldigus. Today we are taking a look at the recently released Takara Tomy exclusive boxset of Car Robots Baldigus, or as he is known here in the States Robots In Disguise (2001) Ruination! Originally a repaint of the Generation 1 Combaticons, he’s redone again here using the Combiner Wars Combaticon figures in his Japanese specific Car Robots colors. It is a superbly executed set – it captures all the aspects someone into RID would want from the deco, it features great metallic sheen paint on key parts, the weapons combine like the original, it uses the upgraded Combiner Wars feet and hands, and it’s presentation is excellent in a single box-set offering. Pure win!
And, to celebrate Unite Warriors Baldigus bringing back RID / Car Robots to the limelight in a big way, we’ve upgraded and updated our QT passion project RIDForever.info. The site is now mobile friendly, has had a slight theme change, and all pages now use the Reflector @ TFW2005 style gallery display method, so you can see all the pictures laid out on desktop or mobile. We’ve also updated the site with RID related toys that have dropped since our last update in 2011. We have some more small items to add and will do so over time.
Anyway, enjoy Baldigus and the RIDForever update. Feel free to discuss this on the 2005 Boards by reading on or join our always ongoing Robots In Disguise (2001) Discussion!
