i'm sure Herp wouldn't like your weird alien head too
You know, these herp/derp titles are actually quite disturbing. (especially since they're just supposed to be two "stupid" goofballs, not actually retarded)
Besides, Mudflap is the only one who looks dumb in the head. Skids just has big ears and buck teeth.
Thanks for the review. I think it's a very nice looking figure, though it lacks paint nearly completely in robot mode, he's still cool.
Not looking forward to these guys in the movie. At all.
Well, for the record, I'm basing the Herp and Derp off the fact that they seem to be based (Skids certainly) on Lenny from Gremlins 2, who spent the whole movie just saying "herpaderpa derp derp derp" and other such gems. I hope to see these guys doing more than that, but I'm not holding my breath too hard.
Any idea if he combines?
I know that from Toyfair the orange guy has 2 missile launchers hidden in his back behind his head that appear to be useless unless brought out through a 3rd transformation.
These guys HAVE to combine somehow. Possibly like Animated Safeguard since each guy has one arm bigger than the other. Right arm for Skids, left arm for orange guy.
that will be about the only reason I get these two guys. The whole goofball thing really puts me off.
Man that's ugly. He is a pass.
Well, I need some Movie toys to display in car mode. It is gonna take a lot for the head and that fist to grow on me. It is kind of sad cause it is a pretty nice figure otherwise. I have a feeling we are gonna see some good customs out of this one. So far the movie toys have been (to say the least) interesting.
Love it. Will definately buy. I will display him alongside Mudflap, and they will be doing an almighty bro-fist.
I have this toy, and let me say, he is awesome! I can get pics later for those interested. Even though he looks like the Hunchback of Notre Dam, still an awesome toy. I dont think he combines, but then again he could. The transformation is complex enough to allow for a combination somehow...
I don't know about anybody else but i am pissed at the fact that the best that they could do is Mudflap and Skids and Jolt and whoever else. I guess it would have killed them to have more popular characters like Prowl, Hound, Wheeljack, Cliffjumper, Trailbreaker. Hell I'll even take Traks or Huffer. I don't mean to complain because I'm sure it's gonna be a good movie, I just wish we had more to look forward to than Mudflap and Skids. Oh and I don't buy the B.S they're saying about more than those robots that we know of in it. I just don't see it. Oh well, at least Sideswipe is in it
Good review. This figure is looking less ugly with every time I see him. Strange transformation; nice engineering. I might get the twins, finally. I think it'll depend on the movie.
At first , I said to myself--"Eh..definate PASS on the Twins".. but then i'd have to break that stupid rule of mine, which is to get ALL the Autobots. SO umm yeah... btw, Great review, Peaugh!
What irritates me about the twins so far is the fact that other than the heads, we have some great G1-style robot modes, as in car hood for chest, doors for wings etc.
It's like they understood a little more about conventional TF design, tried to reign it in a little, but then added the inbred heads.
It's simultaneously cool and frustrating. However, I am still going into this with an open mind. I think they CAN be entertaining, but I'm still afraid they are going to be offensively crappy, with fart jokes and the like.
If they downplay it, recognize them as kind of hillbilly dumbasses and move on, then it may be funny. If they make it like Jar Jar Binks and they get alot of dialogue and eat up screen time, then.....
Either way, at the moment, I am looking forward to the twins' figures. Thanks for the review!
wow, i didn't know they were making Gremlins Transformers
chevrolet is probably pissed about this figure.
Herp looks an awful lot like Micheal Bay.
great review peaugh! guys like you and vangelus should get hired by hasbro. you just made me buy another figure i am supposed to pass on. (vangelus reviewed sideways and now i'm getting him as well.)
but im calling out to fansproject and all the other fan custom-ers out there... please, one proper head each for skids and flap please!
