    Ok, you have my most sincere apologies if this has already been posted...

    i'm sure most of us know by now that some ROTF Skids have painted teeth and some don't. now, you can pretty much make the distinction visually through the package, but in case you can't, here are the stamp numbers...


    Unpainted: 90641
    Painted: 90981

    and for those unsure of locating the stamp numbers, they're actual indented, not printed, numbers on the lower, right-hand corner of the card back. right below the alt-mode pics.

    once again, i'm sorry if this has been posted. i searched and couldn't find it. mods, please delete if it is.

    i didn't know either, my is also not painted. i don't remember seeing any of the skids with painted teeth when i went back looking for more rotf yesterday. vangelous (i hope i didn't spell his name wrong) did a review and did a good job at painting (i know you said not custom, but if you imagine it being official, gives you a good idea).

    Are those stamp numbers the only ones? The number on mine is 90681. I haven't opened mine yet, but it doesn't look to have painted teeth when I shine a flashlight in there. Does anyone know whether the ones with painted teeth are pretty rare? I'm trying to decide whether to open mine up or wait until I find one with painted teeth.

    I looked today at the store, and you can see the teeth through the package, but thanks for the numbers and heads up. I hope the painted teeth version ends up as the mass distributed one after a while. If not, not much of a big deal for me I guess.

    I don't think those numbers are accurate. Mine had the 90981 number but was unpainted.

    hmmm. so does anyone know for sure how to get painted? My best guess since the #'s or inaccurate.. We look inside the cars themselves. If anyone could put a picture up of Skids in Car mode and show us where the head is located would be awesome!. It'd also be better if we can see the head aswell, so when we find skids on shelves, we know where to look.

    I just got one at retail with correctly painted teeth, one gold and one silver. Sorry, if I had known you were looking, I would have looked to see if there was a different ID number. I already recycled the packaging.

    I found one with painted teeth. The number on the back was 90921. I was going to pass when I saw the number, but then I looked to see if I could see the head through the package, and there was the silver and gold teeth staring back at me. So yeah, if you want one with painted teeth, look through the package. The front of the head rests against what would be the top of the center console. If it has painted teeth, it *will* be blatantly obvious. If you question whether you see gold and silver teeth, then trust me, you're seeing green.

    I have not seen any painted teeth. Hell, I have not seen any Skids or Mudflaps at all.
