    Hi everybody, this one started as a TRU G1 reissue. Hes got rotating shoulders, waist, and head, pivoting feet, hindged knees, and elbows, and balljoints in his hips.

    And I have new reprolabels coming for him, because I messed up a couple on his hips.

    I really should learn to order the stickers before I start a project.:dunce 

    Only two more car molds to go!

    Once again, you show how Hasbro completely and totally missed the mark on the TF 25th anniversary.

    Like all your other G1 customs, you've upped the Skids awesome factor by 10,000.

    That totally improves that d00d.

    I may out myself as a lame-o, but Skids was the only Autobot car I wanted as a kid.

    MARRY ME!!!


    er... I mean "Good work, turboedguy!"
    *ahem*

    I always thought Skids was a great looking figure (even if his character was a bit of a lightweight). You've really brought out the best in the proportions. He looks like a very natural Classics figure (if only!).

    What do you say, guys? Should we start mass-emailing these threads to all our Hasbro contacts??

    you added about 10 points of awesome to Skids! This is for sure one of my favorites from you Turboedguy, and I'm not even a huge Skids fan! Bravo!:bowdown:
