    Well, it seems there's a bit of jealously amongst the ranks:

    *gasp* Save the Alt Skids in the middle! Go and get your own set of "Binal Tech" Skids set today!



    [*Ok, by now I hope you realize it's an Alt! The Alt cost me roughly $22 with tax and stuff; the reprolabels set is $4 :D ]

    I kinda like Alt Skids' flames better. Makes it more interesting and stylish. I dunno, It just fits him more, like people who put spinning rims on mini-vans. Y'know, mid-life crisis type guy.:)

    Well, this custom isn't really a matter of me liking one over another. I actually LOVE the BT version over any of them, but it's not without it's faults (mainly being top-heavy). Mine already has fallen from simply being posed on my display shelf and has some very, very, VERY small damage to him, and I wanted to put him up before he suffered any more damage (BT Skids aren't that easy to come by to start with . . . )

    With the Alt Skids, my major gripe with him is the "pixie dust" for tint :puke: 

    The flames don't bother me as much. I actually like them alright, but I really like the stripes of the BT. While I like both, the stripes on my Alt now just really jump out at me more so. I think the reprolabels makes Skids look just slick. :) 

    Yeah, I was too! The reprolabels are actaully BETTER than the BT's on design and durability. I really like em :D

    Hey, don't worry, I love the Skids mold. I think it is cool that such an ugly vehicle mold can actually hold a cool looking robot. He is one of my favorites, plus, he can hold some of the Sigma 6 guns. Hmmm... maybe it is time to give Skids a gun and not a "hot glue" gun?

    I love this mold as well! I want to make more customs with it as well. :ev: 

    I was just really surprised at the stark difference that removing the "tint" and flames then adding the reprolabels made with this guy . . . :)

    Heh. The bigger difference would be to make a Skids out of a Honda City. ;)

    Thanks man! Props to Delta Star; some of the best $4 I've spent EVAH! :thumb 

    Yeah I never understood that decision either. COME ON NOW! Come ON!!! :lol 

    I'll take a polished turd over a turd with pixie dust all over it any day :D 

    I actually like the Scion xB design as well as the design for ol Skids here. The RX-8 remains as my favorite mold though. :)

    I feel much the same way, but after I did the work on this one, a lot of those feelings disappeared. Not all of 'em, just a lot of 'em . . .

    Thanks man! I'm a BT fan too, but mostly for what's left of the collector in me. While I LOVE the color of the BT Skids, the die cast just weights a lot of those toys down too much. I also LOVE the slick, more laid back feel the stripe down the side gives to Skids. I like the flames, sure. I really wished Hasbro had made this guy the brighter blue (I'd think he would have sold a little better; research statistics show that brighter colored toys sell better and they know that). Plus we got a label with Swerve and I wished we'd gotten the same option with Skids (for those of you that don't know, BT Skids and BTA Broadblast come with label sheets).

    If anything, this mod is more of my expression that something needed to be done to Skids. It's also my way of showing my support to Delta and reprolabels :)
