    I've 1UP'd Vangelus and his MC P. by creating my own take on the infamous (okay, so he and another guy did it) combined fan mode of ROTF Skids and Mudflap!

    BEHOLD!

    [​IMG]
    "YO WHAT ARE YOU DOIN" "HOLD STILL DAWG"

    Uhh, whoops. BEHOLD!

    [​IMG]
    The Skidflap 'Paddingflap Redux' (or PR) features a fashionable door panel stomach as opposed to the bulky skirt armor the original donned. He also has less arms, but keeps the big one as a shoulder cannon!

    [​IMG]
    Unfortunately there was no room in the budget to make the green doors wrap all the way around his back end, but they give him a sense of class, yet the style of a superhero.

    [​IMG]
    And where is Skids' backpack, you ask? Tucked nice and tight inside of Mudflap's, of course! Ahh, you can almost hear the plastic crying in pain.

    How can this combo be yours? Well, it doesn't take a rock scientist to figure it out! Simply bend Mudflap over, spread Skids' legs wiiiide open and THRUST (OH HO, INNUENDO)

    Seriously though, it's just a matter of stuffing Skids' backpack into his - I learned while replicating the transformation, you should only go as far as you can until it starts to involve squeezing the backpack to make room. Once it's inside, that's your limit.

    Then it's just a matter of adjusting the legs around Mudflap, as well as flipping Mudflaps head out of sight to avoid the controversial crotch-head. Also, the door panels wrap around to keep the legs in place, remember that.

    Overall, he seems pretty solid. The only issue I'd have is he's really only good for doing epic standing poses, since he's so top-heavy he couldn't possibly have the legs posed in any other way.

    Not much else to say, but I hope this isn't the wrong place for fan modes. ^^; If it is, feel free to move it to the proper place.

    If the twins were actually hickbots, a beer belly would be perfect! O:

    Also, yes, you happen to be that Another Guy. XD I saw your combination on Seibertron, and showed it to Vangelus. I also added "SUMOOO" as my thought on your design. :B

    If you're a Skids/Mudflap hater then you probably shouldn't view threads about them. :rolleyes:

    Could there be a way to fold Skids' little arm in and the big mudflap arm down? on the side view it almost looks possible. I would be nice to give a reason for the big arm/little arm thing.
