    I bought ROTF Skids today (tyvm Walmart sale) and I highly dislike him so I plan on returning him who should I get in return?

    choices are all deluxes and all ROTF (cause its all WM had which sucks I want Bumblebee & Ravage)
    Rampage: 1
    Sideways: 4
    Smokescreen: 1
    Chromia
    Caramel Brawl
    Breakaway: 3
    Wheelie: 2

    im kinda leaning towards Rampage or Sideways or maybe even Breakaway.
    and id of added a poll but I have no idea how

    Out of the one's you're considering, I would recommend Rampage, as he's definitely the best one out of the bunch. Doesn't have perfect articulation, but that doesn't ruin him, and there are a couple simple mods that can be done to add articulation to him. Personally I'm waiting for the Thrust repaint/retool of the Breakaway mold. If you don't already have him, I would recommend Sideswipe.

    Skids is so much better alongside his brother (at least if you're okay with the characters). Love having Wave 3 at my WalMart. :D 

    Out of the ones you listed, I have Sideways and Chromia. I also have the Brawl and Jazz molds. Out of those, I would recommend Sideways. Very cool looking figure.

    I was about to suggest Sideways, but after reading this you would probably dislike Sideways even more than Skids.

    In any case, Breakaway is a lot of fun, provided you mod him so that he can turn his head.

    I had that problem too, but just simply angle the ankle kibble down and using that as a support he'll stand up very sturdy.

    If you're still set on returning him I would go for Wheelie. Its really cool to see tallest deluxe robot fold up into the smallest deluxe alt mode. Though his legs are sort of loose and you may have a little trouble keeping him standing straight up.

    I'm casting my vote for Sideways. I saw your standing concerns, but mine stands fine. His legs have a ton of posability, so it's pretty easy to get him stable without much work. The legs can be in their normal "inverted / chicken / bug" style, or you can straighten them out like normal. The car's quarter panels can be used to prop him up easily if you want him to have a wide legged stance (battle stance) and over all he's pretty fun to transform.

    If you're still leery though, go for Rampage. With four legs, you got standing power in spades, just don't expect individual leg articulation. The front two legs are gimmicked-up for the 'jackhammer' mode so he loses a little posability potential, but overall he's still a great figure.

    I love Skids, really cool figure. But I dunno.. Rampage is good. I don't like Sideways cause of the legs
