    It'll just be Reboost coming for me. It took AJP so long to get Skids listed I went ahead and preordered him from Hasbro Pulse, and Pulse just pushed back Thundercracker to December, so I KNOW Skids isn't going to get to me until next year.

    I'm kind of more excited for Reboost anyway.

    I went with Anime-Export because Amazon Japan didn't have Skids listed at first. It helps save on costs a bit too if my package stays under the radar from customs. Curious when I'll receive him. Can't wait.

    Man, really wish those windows had a black rather than blue tint. This needs some contrast!

    Given the shoulder placement on the cartoon model, I’m glad Takara didn’t go for the cartoon look with MP Skids.

    □シティターボに変形する戦士登場!!
    80年代を代表するコンパクトカーとして、斬新なフォルムを持つシティ・ターボに変形するサイバトロン戦士がスキッズである。
    「トランスフォーマー」の原点となる玩具シリーズ「ダイアクロン」時代に開発が行われ、ダイアクロンカーロボットの一員からトランスフォーマーブランドに新生。
    スーパーカー/スポーツカーあるいは機能に特化した車両が多くを占めるサイバトロン戦士のなかでも、シティの独特なスタイリングは際立っており、70話以上を数えるアニメ「戦え!超ロボット生命体トランスフォーマー」における登場回数は僅か2話でありながら、その印象を憶えているファンもいることだろう。
    MP-12ランボルから始まったリアルカー路線のマスターピースの基本に回帰し、本田技研工業から許諾を得てビークルモードと、G1版トイのメカニカルな魅力を現代的にアップデートさせたロボットモードを確立。
    マスターピースの新しい方向性を感じさせるスキッズを手にして欲しい。

    Is the delay specific to BBTS? Wonder if other retailers will still get him on time?

    Awesome. It sounds like Honda really did have a say in the design of this figure. No wonder everyone felt it had the Hasui elements. The fact that it was admitted in this info is great to know. I hope we get more of these old style more realistic alt modes. I like that my collection has both toon and Hasui style modes. More variety for everyone. I like the toon look, but this makes me appreciate my older masterpieces more.

    On the flip side, it’s pretty incredible how Takara fused together the toon and realistic alt modes for the Seeker jets. Those elaborate transformations make them all the more magical.

    I know Hasbro and Takara are somewhat interchangable, but the BBTS notice does mention Hasbro in particular. So that makes me think it's a shipping/distribution issue potentially. With all the pictures coming out of Asia right now, I don't think that Takara is delaying their domestic release.

    Either way, a 6 month delay is a lot. I do wonder if they might be over-estimating just to be safe given that the current shipping issues and holiday season are going to make things rough for all cargo.

    Somehow I get the feeling people who normally complain about "proportions" will strangely love Skids.

    Regarding the BBTS email, this is yet another reason to order from Amazon.jp whenever an MP is available there. Super fast shipping and often the lowest price available. Yes, returns are a hassle, but doable.
