    Mudflap looks awesome, better than the Deluxe.

    Sideways, Skids and Jetfire are fine too but not better than the main lines.

    I agree, and so does Skids IMO. Don't see myself buying any version of these characters though.

    Skids' head looks more detailed here than on the deluxe. I haven't seen enough of deluxe Mudflap, but the FAB's head look atrocious. Looks like an obscure Star Wars character from the Cantina.

    OMG. Ugly fuglies.

    Skids looks like Jason lopped off half his head and Mudflap looks like he ran face first into a T-600.

    Gah!

    Did George Lucas's son design Mudflap??? It looks like a Jar Jar Binks Crossover.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else thinking Skids and Mudflaps parents were brother and sister. OK, they're twins, but inbreed twins?????

    And we finally see that Barricade has a long-lost identical twin brother.

    I don't know, if I should get fired up, or get ready for a dissapointment, with the movie. First Bay kills off Arcee, because he doesn't like how she likes in production. Of course, they couldn't go back and re-deign her, right?? Then give us two inbreed brother, and a almost exact copy of a Tranformer. That in the first film, shows that he's the greatest magican ever. I don't think Chris Angel can dissapear like Barricade.

    So the FAB's have superior paints apps and far more tasteful/accurate choices in colors...why?

    So, pardon me if I'm the hundredth person to ask this question, but was Skids intended to have buck teeth?

    You know those PSAs that show terribly disfigured victims of drunk drivers? With all respect to those unfortunate people, why do I think of them every time I see these twins. I can't help but feel like I'm supposed to pity them. Or, like there's some sort of lesson to be learned from them.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    I believe Lucas has daughters and not a son. They had a small role in Phantom Menace, they were in the group of kids that made fun of Anakin's podracer.

    Not a fan of FAB's, but Skid's head looks better on this..The awkward looking heads have grown on me kind of--it looks like these two have more pieces in their face than the other TF's, so maybe that will allow for them to be more expressive on-screen.

    As I usually say, I'm not pleased with the FAB's, and this just confirms my hatred toward these figures even more. I didn't buy them then, so I wont be buying them now. I wish hasbro would focus on the more articulated transforming toys, then wasting money on useless little pieces of crap that aren't even worth getting. I will buy the actual movie deluxe Skids and sideways, and maybe the leader jetfire. Unsure about mudflap, but I know that I am NOT buying the FAB's.

    Yeah, I noticed Sideways doesn't have the "red diaper" of the deluxe, what gives?

    Skids and Mudflap are the concession to the general audience and the kids. We get the awesome Devastator and Sideswipe in exchange. :)  At any rate, I don't really hate the designs as much as some. Plus, if the twins combine like the rumors say, maybe we'll get something really cool out of them anyways.

    Not true, his son's name is Jett. And had something to do with that abomination Jar Jar. And he was the Jedi Yougling that was killed in ROTS, on the landing platform. Look...http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Zett_Jukassa. After some searching, Jett Lucas, only named that creation Jar Jar. I haven't been able to find out who the sicko was who actually created him.

    And if it's true that Skids and Mudflap do combine to form one. That could be cool. But, the twins combining is the first I heard. And don't get me wrong, some of the combination could be awesome, but it seems to me that all Transformer in ROTF combine. Prime/Jetfire, Chromia/Arcee/3rd Bike, Devestator. Possibly the twins, which thinking about it does make some sence. What's next Megatron/Fallen??? Plus a Pretender??? It seems like Mr. Bay is trying to squeeze to much into one movie.
