    It's better to get the first HA Skids. Some stores still have it for cheap.

    Unless you're a big Skids fan, get Roadbuster (assuming you can find him).

    Roadbuster is pretty cool, skids is a pointless repaint (although I admit if I'd had the choice to begin with I might have gotten that over the original).

    Well you could get both... Watch retail stores for clearence specials like Kmarts last weeks 50% off all clearence items and pick up ROTF skids for around $12 I think is what I scaned him for. If you don't have any HA ROTF Skids instock around your area just pm me and I'll keep an eye out for more deals as there are still a few stores aound my area that have them in stock

    I have the original HA Skids and it's okay. I have HA Roadbuster and it's fantastic.

    Skids was easy to find with ROTF so the way i figure it if you wanted it most would have gotten it already. If you do not have it is not a terrible figure but far from the best offerings of the HA line. While i know some people think that Roadbusters alt mode is lazy and they take issue with it its a damn fun figure and far better than the Skids mold. Now if you are going for completion than get both if possible. I am only missing one HA figure as of now and thats Soundwave. Sorry not worth 80 for the takara must be patient for the hasbro release.

    My vote in the end Roadbuster. Make sure its the one with the better paint apps.

    This.

    Granted, there's no Topspin and this point to complete the Wreckers, but I think Roadbuster will feel less incomplete than Skids. Plus, even if you track down and pay a lot for Mudflap, he's still not in his DOTM mode.

    Roadbuster is less common than skids. I would think that in the short future, you can probably find skids on sale. Roadbuster's robot mode is very cool and I prefer it to skids by just a bit. I do like skids though and it made me pay more for the rarer HA mudflap
