    Skids CAN look cool!

    Notice the perfect plastic color/glitter match. The balljoints dont match in size, so would need a little more modding.

    Anyone else think of any other heads that might work?

    That looks pretty nice. Looks nice and evil, like maybe a Shattered Glass Skids.

    Good choice! That gives the figure a totally new presence.

    I really hope Hasbro have done some alternate head molds for Skids and Mudflap repaints. Because they're pretty good molds.

    Call me crazy, but I actually like the head he already has.

    Obsidian's head? Thats kinda funky.

    I like it. However, I like Skids head actually, so I'll just leave it as is. Mudflap's "face" however, I hold no bets on changing his ugly mug...

    Is there anyone who actually does have a problem with the original head?

    I know I don't. But it's interesting how another head can work so well with the mold and give the figure a totally different attitude.

    Skids and Mudflap will definitely be a fan favorite in the movie.

    Very nice creation you worked there. That's funny how it works so well.

    Actually, now it looks like he has a massive under bite. lol

    Kinda neat though. Would work well for repainting the mold into a Decepticon.

    How about CR Wild Ride/RiD X-Brawn? It would even work with the mismatched arms. The green's not the best match, though.

    I am not a fan of the (original) head. not HATE, but dislike.

    interesting approach - hadn't thought of Obsidian's head being used like that.

    That or they will be our fandom's version of Jar Jar Binks, but they are up against the ROTF Wheelie. He could suck, also.

    I'm just sitting back and taking it all in when I see this new movie. I shall reserve judgement.

    I am not crazy about the head design but I think it will fit their characters. I am hoping for a G1 repaint of Skids and perhaps a new head mold.
