    Which one of these do you all think will be the most sought after by collectors? I know some of us will be looking for the 'mudflap" plate for movie accuracy and i personally feel this will be the easiest to find once all the stores finally get them.

    Walmart still has the "trax" plate. i almost picked one up but thought i would ask first. I noticed a few people here bummed out because they had the Trax one instead.

    The mudflap one will probably be targeted more by collectors as they will want the more screen accurate version.

    Personally I think both of those versions will be mass made. I say go for the one you like better which will probably be the movie accurate one.

    It kind of doesnt bother me but "Skids & Trax" would have been better Twin names than "Skids & Mudflap"

    The one that was produced first will hold value. The other will be reproduced, en mas. I think that the rarer one will be Trax, as the Skids says Skids.

    See The Incredible Crash Dummies. The earliest say "Vince and Larry and the Crash Dummies", the second pressings say "Slick and Spin and the Crash Dummies", but most say "The Incredible Crash Dummies".

    "Mudflap." Because it matches Skids' "Skids."

    no diferences except the first one to come out says "Trax" on the license plate while the revised one says "Mudflap" on it.

    and no I think Trax is just the name of the car

    ...what?! Why would the plastic quality matter for a figure where the only difference is the license plate tampo?
