    So, I finally got around to getting Deluxe Skids and he's not as bad as I thought he'd be. No that I have him, I want to try doing a custom that I've been wanting to do with the figure ever since I saw him.

    For the custom though, I want to give one of the figures both large forearms while the other one gets both of the smaller forearms. Can this happen without hindering either figures transformations?

    I want to verify this before I go out and get a Mudflap figure and start working on the customs. If it doesn't, then there's no point in going out to hunt for him.

    When i combined Skids and Mudflap into Skidflap, Skids can have both big arms, but Mudflap couldn't have both little arms without mods. So you might have to mod Mudflap if your giving him the little arms. Skids can transform with both big arms, just tried it. So if you were going for that, that's what i found out. hope it helps

    As you can see, Mudflap's arm can fit tightly into Skid's body when transformed

    I was hoping to do this with the HA versions, but we'll have to see what those look like first, I think.

    Can we see a pic of Skids in bot mode with both arms?

    And why can't Mudflap have both small arms w/o mods?

    Here's a pic (although i just now see it's blurry)

    Here's Skids's arm socket with the Mudflap arm in

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, it's the thickness of Skids's arm piece. Mudflap's arm can fit into Skids's due to it being smaller and thinner. Mudflap's arm socket is a bit to small. You might have sand the peg a bit to help it fit. I'll be doing it soon on an upcoming custom
