Nothing caught my attention... That Grimlock looks great though.

Google translation of Skids text:
This time, I would like to introduce a message from Mr. Ohno, a legendary development man who works on the latest masterpiece skids. I didn't dare to attach it. Later, when I released it as a Diaclone version, I tried to attach it to RNS. But it was sporty and very cool. It was fascinating. I used to ride the Red City R, so I'm very attached to it. I didn't think that I would do it when I made the car robot, but I thought that I could do something I couldn't do in the past. Isn't it S? The starting point for skids development was to create a masterpiece with a new direction that responds to such voices, which is a little different from the current trend. There was also a desire to keep prices down without lowering quality as much as possible. After all, "Transformers" started with a car robot that has a presence as a real car and becomes a robot. When thinking of a character that has not become MP yet, skids that transform into a city have emerged. Then, it has only appeared twice, but the vehicle motif of city is very attractive. Now, as the development progresses in the 0's, there is an opinion in the company that "red" is also necessary if you want to put out a city. You've come. This year is the 0th anniversary of the city, so my boss cut out "Isn't there a simultaneous release of two colors?" It was a car. Regarding development, we are also working with Yuya Onishi fans on the team with Master Bees. This time, I think it's a good idea to design outside the company because it's said that two colors are used at the same time so that Sukeju can take it. Skids as a transformer and a new character whose city becomes a robot! Reboost. Reboost is a new character, so it's a little more luxurious, and it comes with a Motocompo. Several developments of the masterpiece are in progress in parallel, and finally the 4LSF Nmo Ato and the new Sky Fuia are also in operation. Leiden will be similar in size to the Unite Warriors. I've been waiting since the first announcement, but it's not the period, it's all drawn by Onishi, so the coloring and settings are in the form of animation. Weapons are also closer to the anime setting. In addition, we want to incorporate Caromo ALS6 Una play, so the driver's seat is 6n where you can choose the figure attached to Mastery KA Cause, which is sold separately. Also, the Motocompo is not included. Speaking of city, after all it is Motocompo, but at that time it was not attached when I became a transformer. That's why this time there is also a thing about skids. That's why I decided to challenge skids, thinking that it would be suitable not only for anime compliance but also for items that want to convey the appeal of cars more. The city was fashionable at that time
Ahhh. So good.
Forgot Rodimus comes with a sword as well. Still, I'll take a comic book reference wherever I can get. Skids looks pretty interesting, I wonder if we're gonna see an overall return to more toyetic details in MP or if it's just because the character never got anything to do in the cartoon.
I wish I could read the text in Figure King, it seems like the kind of magazine I would stare at for hours.
Pull out your phone and open up google translate. They have a camera tool that translates text live from whatever you aim it at.
This is the end of the road, Galvatron
That Rodimus, sigh. . Love these images of him. Skids is also very interesting to look. Reboost, the new bot, is a bit intriguing. I like new characters so keeping my eyes on him.
The chest opens the wrong WAY!!!
Oh man...I can’t wait for Rodimus!
TC : many thanks for the pictures!
Rodimus is definitely looking better now we can see some more features, still a shame that the combined alt mode looks so awkward though. :/
Is there a point to showing off Unicron when people who ordered him are already getting theirs and the people who didn't can't anymore? Unless they plan on doing a second run this is borderline rubbing it in people's faces. "Look at this massive Unicron toy that you'll never own!"
There’s no animation consistency in how it opens. It also opens down the middle later in the season.
"Este sera el fin de tu camino, despidete monstruo!"
The phrase I grew up with and a much cooler one in my opinion.
Rodimus looks great. I'm still flabbergasted about Skids. Will this return to the old style be a new change from now on, or is it just a one off, showing that they're still willing to listen to the fans who want something different than the current cartoon aesthetic?
Why does Rodimus have a sword?
These 1986 Movie homage toys have been pretty good at their details and accessories to relate to what happened in the 1986 movie, so the sword looks really out of place.
I used to get really excited for scans of figure king magazine but ever since Hasbro and Takara started using the same deco, my excitement has dwindled.
Hoping for the opportunity to preorder Rodimus Prime and Skids soon! They look fantastic!
