    If they do any of the Diaclone recolors like Burnout that use the Skids head (as opposed to Crosscut's), they'd probably make up a toy head. Hopefully they'll actually then use it for a toy-version Skids unlike Sunstreaker who never got it (yeT) despite the parts just sitting there.

    I think a future toy-version Skids is going to depend entirely on the popularity of the other releases. If they get to the black deco and it's still selling well, Takara will be more agreeable to a fifth or even sixth release of the mold (if they also do the red Skids) than they would be if the black deco and Crosscut end up shelfwarmers.

    Just a few more weeks. Got the stock notification from AE, going to select and pay when I get home (forgot my password for them), will then be shipped next week and should arrive the week after. Hopefully customs will go easy on me with the new EU regulations....


    Guess I'll have to rotate the arms to get the wheels on the front, paint the thighs silver and either paint or wait for stickers to make him more like the toy. God, I really hate that huge Autobot symbol on his chest with how it bleeds over the angled edge and the cartoon design. On a figure that includes so many toy elements they should've just left it blank and include stickers for both options.

    (Oh, and I want Charlene, damn it.)

    That's pretty cool that you can can store all the gun in dedicated pegs in the trunk. It definitely seems like you can't store all 3 of Reboost's guns along with the Motocompo, but it'd be nice you can fit at least 1 gun in along with it.

    MP-53 skids. The goodness of this style is that you can create a robot mode that does not seem to be deformed by moving parts of each part. This child ( ≧▽≦ ) is really interesting and fun, including how the deformation fits and the goodness of action. This is a good variant TFTOY, including the difficulty level

    Yes he is. Head arms and a few other parts are a lighter shade.

    I think the red one looks the best of the pair. Better head, better mix of colours, black windows.
