    They come with scooters? What the heck? I didn't click the link. Is that a 3rd party add-on or something? Neat, but I have no interest in these figs anyways so... meh?

    No, they're from the original Diaclone Honda City (pre-TF Skids). e-Hobby Crosscut included them too. Official product included with the set, not 3rd party.

    The original is blue, this is the Transformers Generation 2009 Volume 3 exclusive with Screech.

    Yes, and e-Hobby Crosscut.

    I wonder if the head of Streech will be blue like the previous diaclone editions. It is strange because the first photos were showing it red and this come in a ugly grey...

    I have tree diferent Skids, the Blue one, the e-hobby crosscut and one red Gig Skids. I also planning do a Custom Black Skids (like the diaclone) so I will complete the set whit this 2 guys.

    You'll also notice the Crosscut mold of the City isn't the Turbo version and doesn't have the bump on the hood.

    As long as they don't blow up if rear-ended, I'm interested.

    probably limited to 2,000 pieces but i can not find the appeal other than they are rare. Same goes for the limited run of G1 Ironhide and Ratchet in movie color.

    Do the scooters transform? :lol 

    Anyway, the red one's (Screech?) color scheme looks better IMO even though green is my favorite color. In car and robot forms. Also, they look really simple to transform.
