    Not sure if you're being serious, but either way, it's the bump on the left side of the hood -

    It's what XTB's skids was shown to originally come with. He got changed out to a flat hood right before release (even the Paik4Life preview video of the early prototype showed Skids with the scoop). It's a prominent feature of the car in You're Under Arrest, since Miyuki Kobayakawa took her stock patrol car and souped it up, being an carmod junkie.

    Two out of three variants of this mold have an incorrect alt mode. That is too bad. Hopefully there will be a V2 with the right alt modes according to the figure's real life counter part.

    Skids and these Re-Decos lost a lot of character when XTB removed the hood scoops.

    A shame.

    The can make tiny articulated figures now.
    It should be possible to give MP carbots with the necessary engineering drivers without resorting to statues.

    Well yeah of course I’d love FIGMA styled figures, but if people don’t have the funds for those then swap out statues aren’t too bad an idea.

    Totally in for Taiho to put him with Prowl, Clampdown and Cordon. Not to mention I have a spare Japanese police chrysanthemum decal somewhere to apply on Taiho :D 
    I think it's great to see new pics, albeit just renders. Pretty sure they have been focusing on pumping out their stunticons. Does anyone know if Skids is getting a re-release?

    I normally do not purchase third party masterpiece scaled figures but that repaint looks really killer. However, I still need to purchase Cordon before I consider picking this up.

    Same, though I actually wish there was a Bokuto Precinct set for the others.

    I didn’t think so. It’s just a bump on the hood of the car.

    The old Kup like face is much better. This guy looks like someone who's been starving.

    Really like it, but I really wish it had the hood scoop. It's a dealbreaker.
    Still curious to see how they handle Natsumi and Miyuki.

    Preordered for sure, but I feel like they missed the chance to have his head modelled after Nakajima Ken+helmet, which would've been awesome.
