    I believe the collective noun is "an obscurity of Skids".

    I know this.

    The noun Skids is both the plural and singular form. Eg. I have two Skids in my collection. Or XTB will have their Skids for sale very soon.

    Great renders. Must be near prototype phase if it's due in July. Curious to see how the actual material finish looks vs the renders.

    Great renders. They remind me of the ones XTB released of Virtus....back in May of last year! Still haven't seen a physical prototype of that figure, let alone a release.

    Why on earth would I believe we're gonna get Skids in July?

    Maybe because until then we won't see 3(4) other companies release their own pretty decent versions. ;)  Just trying to be optimistic.

    I'll place my preorder when pictures of a painted prototype show up. But I'm definitely in. The early reviews of the first XTB Stunticons indicate that Keith is back on track.

    Cool. This I really am excited about. Finally got my Masterpiece Skids. Weird this got me more excited than all the official MP reveals. Still need to scratch that G1 itch. This guy will be ordered through Taobao.

    Renders are nice but does anyone really believe this is releasing in July? We'd have seen painted test shots, production samples, box art and probably be starting to see reviews by this stage if it was that close to release. I'll be happy if this comes before the end of the year!!
    Still excited but these early release date announcements are getting ridiculous.

    Again, with this project, good news.

    I like it, and I hope it is released soon. Barring a big cock-up, I'll buy it happily.

    Exciting!

    Well that Beast Wars Megatron does look very cool. I'm only getting the Primals and Megatrons in the Beast Wats MP line, and I can't wait to see him in a nice shiny purple paint. That and the PE TM2 dragon Megs will he glorious.
    Just waiting for someone to announce TM1 figures. Need a skateboarding monkey and a rollerskating dinosaur.
