Photos: Updated photography added to "Car Robots" Wildride review

Over the years I've been trying to update the photography for some of my reviews. The latest to join this group of figures is Wildride from "Car Robots"!

*Note: Two of Wildride's wheels have cracked, an inevitable consequence of having rubber tires.
