I originally posted this in the new trailer thread this morning and it got a few interesting replies. "I know im gonna be hated for saying this but I ****** love mudflap and skidz! I dont understand all the hate they get. For two completely made up 'comedy relief' characters they have a certain charm about them and heaven forbid me for saying so but appear to have more character then some established autobots. I dont know why but I just really like them. From what Ive seen so far from the toy bios, comments and footage etc.., they seem to realise they arent the greatest but are still eager to do their best and try to please everyone. I like their design, I like their characters and I like the childlike simple innocence they seem to portray. They are both just so endearing, and that little happy scream from mudflap as he gets sucked into the vortex just cements this to me and had me worried for the little guy. I really hope that isnt the end of mudflap. I really hope they will surprise the people writing them off already during the course of the whole film. I hope." Just do not understand all the hate these two are getting, we havent even seen the film yet and already people are calling them the 'jar-jar' characters. A tad unfair I feel, as since Jar Jar, ive never ever seen characters as annoying as him that have been aimed at kids. Give em a chance.
