    That is a nice set but a bit too rich for my blood.

    I wonder why they just didn't call the brown one Mudflap?

    Damnit I'm a sucker for G1 repaints but the price is a little off-putting. Maybe next year sometime.

    I don't want to miss out in case these two are the next Crosscut/Road Rage. Preordered.

    They should have done this for Ratchet and Ironhide instead of using that lousy headless mold.

    The third party company that did the fold-away heads made those for the redecoes too, which mitigate the mold somewhat.

    Because that is Screech and it has nothing to do with Mudflap.

    I must have misread the title. I was expecting Dustin Diamond.

    Who's Screech then? Besides this new exclusive character. I think it's quite obvious that these are supposed to be movie homages or else why would Skids not be blue? Maybe Mudflap doesn't translate to Japanese well

    You will have to ask Mr. Simon Furman for he is the one who include this new character "Screech" to the Quantum Operative thing.
    For how Skids gets the new color read HERE
    Screech sticks with its own color.
    I will say Quantum Operative might have something to do with the Alternity storyline.

    Mudflap does translate well in Japan. They also call those things as Mudguard.
