    Okay, first time I'm seeing that alternate transformation for Skids. Definitely rushing to buy one now. :)  (As you see, I comment as I go.)

    Went and transformed my ROTF Skids in the way you showed. A good figure looks even better now.

    Really? I thought it was fairly common to transform him alternately like that. I'm glad i showed it then :)

    There actually is a mod you can do...it involves some cutting and such of bits but it makes his doors and backpack look even better

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/tutor...e-skids-door-wings-backpack-mod-tutorial.html

    I did it to my original figure first and LOVED it. I then did it to my new DOTM and again...it's awesome looking. I highly recommend to anyone to do that mod

    Nice review as always..

    Like the car colors...

    Robot colors = :yuck 

    Even the colors on the bike are :yuck 

    The OG HA Skidz is vastly superior

    The neon green in contrast with the black is really actually starting to grow on me. I am still considering doing some parts swapping with the original HA figure but only if he doesn't look as neon green in the DOTM movie itself. If that's how he looks, i'll be more inclined to leave him as is

    I modded my HA Sideswipe this week, but it seems like it was a LOT easier than that.

    I knew about the mod but I hate to see butchered parts, even if they're not that visible. Just knowing they're there is enough for me.

    Skids' face looks funnier for some reason to me, might have something to do with the paint apps.

    Nice review, I have the ROTF HA Skids, but if a new HA Mudflap is release, it'll give me a reason to buy this Skids as well.

    oh, and look what I discovered about the new Skids Bumper.

    look really closely.

    All they did was paint over the embossed word, SKIDS. :lolol
