    Skidz, based solely off the alt mode.

    Mudflap's alt mode looks really nice too.

    Mudflap is a little plain in alt mode, but I like his colors and the metal flake finish.

    Toy wise, I'll have to go with Skids. But I find that I like Mud's goofy little face more, for some reason.

    Overall I like them both. They're a neat pair.

    I don't like the stupid "fetal alcohol syndrome" look for either of them. By I do like mudflap's alt mode. Reminds me of the Honda Element.

    Bit of a tie for me, atm. Might change after I've seen the movie. I really like Skids's bot-mode design, especially the head, but I like Mudflaps' alt-mode and overall color scheme. On a side note, I'm really hoping that they give us a HA Mudflap to go with Skids. Wouldn't feel right to have a figure that's pretty much a mini MP of only one of the two Movie-verse twins without the other.

    A third option for tie situations would have been nice, and maybe even a fourth option for those who don't like either one. Not complaining, just saying what I would have done.

    skid is the better toy since it actually connects way better than mudflap...

    I like Mudflap better. Both of their faces are a disaster, and I like Skids face better, but I like Mudflaps body better as well as his alt mode. His deluxe toy is also a little bit more involved than Skids. Skids transformation is too simple for me.

    That is why I picked Mudflap...based directly on the fact I like his toy and look more. I can't say personality wise, because I have not spent much time with them yet.

    That is not how the comic made it look. Either they are just as dumb as one another, or Mudflap is a little bit more laid back and intelligent. Skids is a little overzealous and unreceptive. This is just my take on the two based on what Skids says before they get into a fight inside the pyramid.

    Skids wins out for the better looking alt mode, but clinches the win by being a TF version of Beetlejuice:

    Skids has the better looking deluxe, but Mudflap's ice cream truck robot mode is better. I'd call it a draw, but Skids edges out by virtue of being MC Paddington.

    Skids, for sure. Mudflap's face is just...terrible. Although I'm certain I'll love both characters to death in the movie.
