    I really like Skids. The only knock on him is that he has the lame punching thing instead of an actual weapon. But other than that i really like him, much more creative than Mudflap in my opinion.

    Skids is the better of the two (Skids and Mudflap, that is) in theory, but Mudflap was executed much better.

    I've found myself really entertained with the ice cream truck set. So I'll recommend that.

    No. deluxe Sideswipe is one of the highlights from the ROTF series. Not to take anything away from skids because Skids is actually really cool, but Sideswipe is much better.

    just from the few videos and pictures i think HA Skids is gonna be worth it more. I mean the only big complaint is he has window wings but honestly...I don't really think it makes that big a difference.

    I'd say yes, Skids can actually stand easily.

    My only gripe, is that in car mode, he can't fully be in place. His right door kinda sticks out, I went through two of 'em to figure out it wasn't just me fucking up with the transformation.

    Dont think so. There is one part where you feel you might break him, but you most likely wont.
