    Nice! Much better than I had anticipated!

    I was originally going to ditch it upon getting the Farmageddon set, but now I think I'll keep it in vehicle mode as a display piece.

    Nice enough, though a new mould with the actual car model would've been good (seeing as the 1-step gets that treatment) especially as the bot mode is a little at odds with the movie aesthetic.

    Looks great. I don't know what to call him but I want him for my classics/generations.

    Its a pretty decent figure. Up in the air still about getting it though. May wait and see if the deluxe rally car is the same figure or not

    Aside from the shoulders not being transformed properly, he looks pretty damn good. Nice to see the homage "brand" names, too, as I always get a kick out of what usually gets slipped in.

    If you do end up wanting to get rid of it, let me know as I'd be willing to give it a good home.

    I think it would have looked better with the Crosscut head, like on the box art, but the deco is pretty sharp.

    I personally like that Skids mold, so I'm excited to get this variant, movie-verse or not! :D

    at least the crosscut head would've hid some of the G1 styling...

    only two sponsors are Cybertron Radials and Dinotron Fuel.

    Looks like an Autobot symbol on each side of the rear of the car, but it looks to be purple instead of red, so....Shattered Glass Skids?

    I'm interested and might get it if I see it in store (it's not an exclusive, is it?)
    A Bay-style head would have made it a must-buy for me...

    Going in my classics collection. Just can't decide if I am gonna put him in the Autobots, or re-purpose him as a D-Con to go next to Bugbite.
