    that "thing on the back" is called a spolier... lol The alt mode looks decent, but the robot mode is rather simple looking which is not a good thing when we're talking about movie stuff imao. I'll prolly stick with my rotf skids and Mudflap unless Mudflap suprises me.

    Dear Primus! Let his legs be somehow mistransformed! The ovaerall lack of KNEE is hurting my eyes. I looked at some of the previous pictures of Skids, and it looks like there are some joints not in use around the "feet". The pics kinda look like they are for ankle posing, but the way they would fold out/ rotate makes me think otherwise.

    That or they fold out to form the alt mode...

    Yep, I can spot an unused joint as well. We can even see it on the video review. Either that joint is just a trick in the eye or no one has spotted it. The reviewer says he looked at some images to transform. Chances are that he looked at the very image you posted. If so, the feet mistransformation can be forgiven.

    Figure will look much better if that joint can be used.

    I'm happy for the fact that Mechtech ports hide themselves well in vehicle mode.

    With the news of a new human alliance Skids, this one is superfluous.

    Well, you can say that the review was rushed:
    " the weapon doesn't fit on the left hand, there is no use in trying, it's obvious that it doesn't... >>CLIC<< ... oh..."
    I'm sorry but I didn't like this video. You said yourself that you even didn't know how to transform him into car mode. Other reviewers take their time to handle the figure a little bit before doing the review. (hint: re-view, view something you have already viewed, not just fiddle with something for the first time)
    Most of the time you were talking about how you hoped that this video was the first one and that nobody else uploaded another video in the time that it took you to make yours.
    Also, don't tell us how you bought it from a chinese bid and you got him in a week... that's useless information, nobody cares about that. To make an interesting figure review video, you must actually dedicate some time to the figure.
    I appreciate that you shared it with us, but I think that you ironically wasted a lot of time in it while wanting it rushed.

    Also, I cannot say since it's too early, and we obviously don't have the figure, but giant clown feet with no knees? I am not directly saying that you mistransformed it, but that could be the case.

    I just don't understand how you can spend 20 minutes reviewing a transformer & not have time to transform him once...

    It's not his review, as per the title says. However, I agree with you on every point you made. I guess he rushed to try and quickly upload it, but it sounded like he had just ran to the perimeter of LA. Twice. It wasn't awful though, just, a nice paradox to start my day. :)

    See that black panel on the bottom of his foot? That's a car panel. The toes rotate up, out and around to form the section of the car between the door and the rear tire. The giant feet are indeed the proper transformation. He has knee joints. The only thing I see mistransformed in that pic is that the black panel there on the arm closest to the camera needs to be lifted up and flipped over so that arm has the green detailing it should have. If you don;t like the feet you're seeing here, don't buy the figure, there's no secret transformation being missed. Those are his proper feet.
