    It means random "retard" sounds, for lack of a better term.
    Kinda offensive really, but appropriate to their characters.

    these 2 inspired me to jump on the WIP twins I had going on. Why hasbro used 2 different shades of green on skids, we'll never know...

    My theory is that they leftovers from the crap green they threw into Breakaway.

    :D 

    To answer your question, I basically highlighted the mechanical parts with gunmetal and silver and rouched up some areas with some detailing. The original figure was pretty bare.

    Eg: Mudflap's thighs are basically puke brown plastic and I referenced to the CGI pics and highlighted the mechanical areas. The same goes for Skids.

    The stock colors dont them justice as they have tons of detailing on the plastic themselves.

    Pretty sums up Hasbro's entire movie output IMO.
    Grumbling aside I like what you've done with the twins. Do you have any plans to do the ice cream truck when it's out?
