    Yes but why stop there. when it comes to obscure why not give us MP style Omnibots. I would be all about a MP Camshaft.

    Probably, but he's so obscure that I assume every company would rather spend the time and effort on making the more popular characters.

    Yes! I've been waiting for a Masterpiece G1 Skids for years!
    Poor guy is so overlooked.
    But I'd want an accurate Honda City Turbo alt mode, plus the compact mini-motorbike accessory too.
    Up until recently I'd have said that Takara would knock this one out the park, with a lovely licensed Honda alt mode. BUT with the new 'toon blandness polluting the official Masterpiece line, I'm thinking that 3P companies would suit my needs better. If only I could have a Hasui-era MP Datsuns accurate Skids.

    I do... but only for sake of S2 character completion, not because I actually have any interest or love for a character that showed in one episode and spoke all of a single line or two.

    It's funny but this was being discussed in the Downbeat thread. I think Badcube or MMC (OM) make sense to do Skids and the Omnibots. They have a low audience but have not been touched because of that so whoever jumps on them is not getting competition. Trailbreaker/Hoist was done so it is hard to argue that they are so obscure no one would want them. From here on out it is MP combiners and HM/MF/Victory stuff.

    Every good MP treatment of a S1-3 character is more than welcome. I'd even buy more obscure or non transformable characters like Alpha Trion, Devcon, B.O.T., Autobot Spike or Deceptitran.

    Speaking of S2: Would someone finally make a King Nergil figurine, please ?

    When the Alternators line was in it's prime, Skids was released in a perfect updated form, with some of the best articulation of the series, sold for fifteen dollars at retail... And warmed shelves like crazy.

    When Classics was Generations, Skids was released is a solid representation of the character that IDW actually made people give a damn about, with decent articulation [albeit, misassembled], sold for fifteen dollars at retail... And warmed pegs like crazy.

    While I too would like to see him get a decent MP G1 update, there's a pretty solid history of him just not hitting the mark with popularity.

    ... ... ... At least until that first 3rd party makes an announcement.

    I actually have Alternators Skids as a part of my Mp collection, but he needs to be a real Mp soon.

    Sweet Primus, yes! I desperately want an MP Skids, he was my favourite carbot after Sunstreaker and Mirage. The inevitable Crosscut retool would be awesome as well.

    I second the inclusion of a Charlene figure. Daisy Dukes FTW!

    Yes! Totally down with completing my set. I love IDW Skids, but I know that has no connection with toy Skids.

    I have a Binaltech Skids standing in at the moment... I couldn't like the fire and scion logo decals on the alternator

    Waiting patiently. G1 Skids is an awesome idea. I'd love a MP size/quality IDW Skids as well though. That was a great character and looked really cool.

    Matter of time. He's the only premovie carbot not done so means there'll be at least 16 versions in the works.
