    I'm thinking about getting a new car, and I really like the recent Skids mold.
    What model would you say most closely resembles the figure's alt mode?

    The Honda Fit looks fairly close.

    OK maybe the Toyota Rav4. It may be a bit bigger that Skids is supposed to be.

    I think it looks like he might have been based in some part on this Subaru Impreza WRX STi concept car. I get that that doesn't help you much, but... does anybody else see it?

    I drive a Honda Fit, and I never realized how much it looks like Skids' alt-mode. Mine is gray, so it's even closer to Crosscut.
