    Alright so I went to Walmart today and they had again the same but I looked and Skids and Mudflap and they looked so cool the only thing is I only buy figures in the movie and I know they are in it in the convoy scene so I could buy it and keep it in ALT mode so what do you guys think I should do?

    If I remember right from reading, They had a part in the novel and weren't cut out like in the film so you could have them tfed any way.

    If you like em buy em. And luke xion said they were in the novel if you are the type of collector that only buys the figures that were from DOTM.

    I say go for it... that's actually the only reason I bought them. The robot modes (IMHO) are butt, but the alt modes are sweet.

    They were indeed in the novel, they were also rusted to death immediately following Ironhide's demise... poor guys.

    Friends don't let friends buy Deluxe Skids and Mudflap. Seriously if you're going to get them, go with the HA versions.

    I haven't spent dime one on those two. Godawful characters and I won't support them. If I acted like Skids or Mudflap in the wrong bar downtown I'd get my ass kicked or worse.

    I don't have Mudflap yet,but I got my new Skids Last night and I like him! All I recommend is that you turn his leg around and fold in the toe. Looks and works much better

    Hell yes you should get them. I like the DOTM versions better than ROTF. I love the Twins; they are two of my favorite characters.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy them. I was never a fan of their characters, so in my opinion, they're just a waste of money when there are other awesome Movie-verse figures to buy.

    I agree with most of this. While I won't say that their characters were awful (they were mildly amusing.) their Deluxe-class toys WERE awful.

    I had the ROTF versions and as soon as I opened them and transformed them into robot mode, they became bath toys for my 2-year-old daughter at the time.

    They're God-awful.

    End rant.

    I do like the decos of their DOTM figures a lot more than the ROTF ones - I also like that they have the same alt mode yet different transformation schemes.

    That being said, I absolutely hated their characters in ROTF and I can never, ever see them as anything but those bumbling idiots.

    So, yeah...I wouldn't get them.

    skids is a deluxe who has no knees. Any deluxe without knees should be boycotted instantly imo.

    I didn't know they were the kind of transfomer who have the heads in the front seat.

    I like the colors on them but the molds themselves are weak to me.

    I've been considering Mudflap for weeks now because I like the color combination, but now that I see Skids can look out his own windshield, I may just go pick both up while TRU still has it's sale going.
