    Not widening the legs at the hips is going to be a common mistake. The guy in the video forgot to do it too.

    When I ordered Starscream I remember getting such a delay. They handed it off to USPS is why.

    Just got mines, only opened up Skids. Fairly simple transformation didn't need to look at instructions. I don't think he's fully painted, the outside of the car for the most part, some of the baby blue is painted and plastic. No issues, but with less paints and parts that"s not a surprise. Only ratchets are in his hips.

    For a character like Skids, I'm fine with this especially for the price, it's in every sense patterned after a Hasui bot, theres some good and some bad in that. I probably wouldn't be as positive if they took this approach with Jazz or Mirage.

    I'd DEF would not be ok with this treatment for Jazz, and Mirage, add Trailbreaker and Reflector to that lol. I think with Skids in particular his cartoon model is horrible. As if they knew he wouldn't get much screen time so his design was rushed (I know that's not the case of his design for those that can't comprehend)...which isn't saying much as I find the season 2 designs the weakest of all, too fat and boxy with no "style".

    In this particular case, it could also be toy based since the toy also had blue windows. Just very dark blue so they look black in altmode.

    It is quite good and easy to transform into this MP-53 for compared to the others especially the MPs but honestly I just realized that it already came out of the market and I also saw the video review and it is quite good but only as two details that They do not fit well, it is the arms because in the cartoon there was no red where the wheels are on the shoulders and a little under the arms I suppose they changed that for design and engineering reasons, well the reality I do not remember very well what Skids was like in the series, since it seemed very little, it may be that one\'s resources are distorted
