    If I do get one of them, it'll be Skids. I love the shade of blue that he uses. Something about Reboost comes off as bland to me

    Well, right above the knees. It looks hollow and therefore cheap to me. I don't care who uses it, I don't like it.

    Ha! The "new standard" tagline sure is weird though. I assume it either means the alt mode play features like you said, or just another way of saying "We're willing to do a hybrid design like this sometimes" :lol

    Guess it could mean easier transformations too, but I remember the complaints of Shockwave being too easy and not MPish enough. Skids is looking quite easy looking

    They better not make a bunch of MPs with simple transformations and prices that will eventually creep up.

    Yeah, I saw the twitter post, clicked it, as was like "really? You took how long to tweet about this?" so I'm not surprised you were fooled by them if you hadn't seen it already.

    Quite odd really, given how much of a push this has had in Japan with the anniversary slant etc.

    I mentioned before I dont know if its Honda or Skids is such a lifeless release they have to do "extra". I'm guessing besides the normal reason they want to see if this succeeds as it will determine how they approach other stuff. While I'm sure the usual suspects will get the same level of attention, Skids,Raiden, and Skyfire will probably determine how they will go about "outside of the box" characters.

    If that really is what it means, I am all about it. And really it should be easy to include functional interiors with seats and drivers with Jazz, Trailbreaker and Hoist.

    Its definitely an easier work-in on the remaining 4 diaclones and I'm guessing it will extend to Skyfire, who wont carry a minibot but will will have functioning parts on his alt mode, like bay door, opening cockpit, maybe some stuff with his thrusters, maybe some macross style hidden missile pods. Think we're headed the same way with a new Rodimus, less space Winnebago and more Convoy with a trailer similar to MP44 in altmode.(oh snap, I feel a rodimus prime wishlist coming:D )

    I imagine the concerns about paint and people's fear if breaks may have necessitated the need for simpler transformations. We'll find out in a few months with Starscream, who I think will be more Inferno/Ironhide and less Megatron/Prime.

    Then they painted him up in a more cartoon accurate scheme and all was forgotten.

    Debuting at the Consumer Electronics Show, of all places, apparently.

    Skids got the largest spread in Generations 2021. Poor Skids. I finally found this thread way back on page 6 of the news section. I’m not hugely excited for this figure but he’s growing on me. Note the third head design that says “illustration head”. I don’t know what that means. Comic head?

    Looks like the sketches are credited to Onishi. Still looks creative enough in design and not an oversized Generations figure. Love the shade of blue on Skids as its one we haven't had on our shelves before. Thanks @Paco Grande for sharing

    Love those pages. Man, now I'm tempted to pick one up. Did you get yours from AJ?

    Edit: Forgot to thank you for taking photos of yours and sharing with us.

    Looks like I don’t have to take Skids apart now. Lucky him.
