I'm VERY excited for this one.
I really hope they fix the shoulder tabs/bicep swivels on this one. It’d be nice to have that system work.
Ok guys, knock off the "bump" posts.
I will pick up this deco to go with cordon and Prowl and the rest of the police and FD cars. Very nice
I wish it came with a second head with replace the one on Skids. Still, I may use my second copy to do a head swap. Shouldn't be hard to match the blue.
Sure does have a puuuurday face.
Ok I'll Bite give me a Police Beachcomber too.
Hell yeah! Shame the girls can’t fit in. Would’ve liked something akin to a Binaltech figure that had swap out legs and arms. But otherwise the figure looks beautiful.
Long neck is LONG.
Other than that. this is the best deco for that mold yet.
Really impressive. I love it a lot.
The loss of the turbo scoop for this version of the mold is, ahem, criminal. I might still get it but this version of the mold at the very least REALLY needs to have it.
You could make the argument for or against it for Skids based off of toy vs. cartoon or whatever, but the souped-up nature of the car in YUA is core to the design and the scoop is one of those few outward indicators of that.
Agreed. I can make a 3D scoop add-on but it'll be superglued on. Don't really want to do that but I will to get a real YUA cop car.
Was also thinking Binaltech.
Didn't they tool the neck differently to work around the scoop? Considering they used the Herald version, I wonder if it was a point of fragility. Otherwise, it'd be weird they made slavish deco and opted to the version without it.
The original Skids had the shaped neck that was designed to fit around the scoop back from when it was going to come with it, I assume that Crosscut had the same since the neck works fine either way and it looks like from the one image of his neck that this one has the same indentation at the bottom of the neck to fit around the bonnet bump.
Makes me wonder what happened to the scoop molding for the front of the car - it obviously existed at some point since the early pre-production samples of Skids had it. I wonder if the tooling itself got changed to flatten it out rather than doing up a new one for the flat hood
Been a while since I saw the show, but didn't the car have the hoodscoop in the show?
I will keep it in car mode
No usable ratchets in car mode, only in bot mode.
