Going through my collection the other day it occurred to me that while it is common for a good character to get horrible toys (*stares at Movie Bee*) it is rarer for a Horrible Character that is loathed or hated... to get an amazing figure. Maybe it just happened to have great engineering. Or a great look. Or cool accessory. But this is the figure where you look at it and go "I hate this character so much and I am ashamed to own merchandise of him/her... but damn is that a fun toy!" So let us celebrate the horrible figures that somehow got amazing figures. I'll start with the one (or two) that inspired this discussion: There is a LOT I will forgive the movies for because I feel they did more good than harm. I honestly believe Transformers would be a shell of what it currently is without them. I don't think the toy aisles would have the space they do without the films and it brought so many great characters back into the limelight. But I can't defend Skids and Mudflap. You might see them as racist... or stupid... or stupid racists... you might feel they took away from better characters or didn't help the plot... But dang if they don't have a cool deluxe. Even though I know I could make 100 bucks easily selling off my Skids and Mudflap deluxe... I won't. Because it is a friggin ice cream truck that turns into two scout-size Transformers! They look silly and dumb but I just love this figure so much. I don't care if the robot modes have so much kibble my neighbor's dogs scratch at my door thinking it is dinner time when I get them out... ICE CREAM TRUCK!
