    I'm not really considering doing this right now. I already own the ROTF versions of Skids and Mudflap, but I was wondering if there were any improvements made with the new DOTM versions. I realize the toys are much smaller than before and they seem a bit lazy from what I've seen, but does anyone have another opinion he or she could give on these toys? It'd be greatly appreciated, even if what you say is negative towards the toys and the characters.

    Has anyone purchased DOTM Skids yet? I know it is available now. I believe I saw one at K-Mart today.

    If you have purchased the toy, I have a small questionaire for you to look at:

    Are there any positives to the toy? If so, what are they?
    Are there any negatives? Explain
    Do you personally like the toy?
    Would you recommend it to others?

    from what I've seen they apparently have no knees, which means I won't touch them whatsoever

    I like him a lot better than the rotf version. Love the color and the transformation is easier. So far I think these dotm toys are the best yet.

    I'll buy them. Skid's feet are fricking huge. Therefore I'll probably rotate them around...
    But yeah.

    It probably won't be until I see some reviews where I could make a definate decision.

    Skids' cool despite his simplicity, but it won't top the ROTF version, much the HA one.

    Well, I don't care a whole lot about the twins, but DOTM Skids looks less appealing to me than his previous versions... I mean these legs are horrendulous.

    Ugly feet
    tiny bot mode
    NOT in the movie
    The only reason to buy this toy is if you love the black color car mode which is why I got it.

    Just looking at them it's a pass for me. I like the new color scheme, but they don't look that great in robot mode.

    Yea, I decided to give it a miss. I saw the review by Peaugh, and those feet are horrible.
