    I'm glad he didn't based the design off the movie version of Skids.

    I really like the Prime influence in Milne's designs. That said, Skids is a little underwhelming compared to his Trailbreaker

    For some reason this design looks better in the recent sequence art of the MTMTE preview, then it does in this sketch. Maybe because it's a concept sketch.

    I wonder why Alex makes the feet stick out like that in these designs?

    InB4RedAlertRescue begins crying that it looks like a Gundam design.

    I'm into it. For some reason, it looks like Trailbreaker which would lead me to believe/hope if either character got a toy, the repaint/remold would be the other character.

    Cool, Alex Milne makes even the shittiest and boring Autobots look cool. Recently Trailbreaker, now Skids. Very talented artist.

    I would have liked the torso to be a bit more boxy like the original toy and like he did with Trailbreaker but I am down with this. Hella down.

    Awful - do not like this art concept at all. The Trailbreaker was just as bad.

    Ay! Where's his gold tooth!!!

    LOL all jokes aside I like that they're acknowledging that a character was bastardized by making efforts to redeem it.

    I like this better than his Trailbreaker. It stays closer to the original look of the character, and maintains a cleaner silhouette overall.

    Anyone else mildly distracted by a passing resemblance to Animated Sentinel Prime?
    (mostly in the chest/shoulder area)

    There's still some influences there though, like the wheel shoulders and such.
