Silver Blaster with what appears to be a remoulded head? Not that interesting...

EDIT: And now it all makes perfect sense. There aren't colour variations of Skids. The 'silver' street version we all heard of was Blaster from the beginning! That explains why HLJ had only BT 17 Skids up, with no mentionning of two variations.

Broadblast isnt even a BT, but a BT*, no remolding on the head (nor on Alert, so I appologize as I was wrong on that one)

Black Lio looks nice for a black repaint, and the silvery grey plastic from Star Convoy makes him look better, but still a brick

My question. Does the cute girl holding Skids come with Skids? :)

If Red came with a shoulder cannon I'd buy him in a heartbeat. Some pretty cool stuff there. I really gotta preorder Galvy.

I am fully aware of all releases on that line, it's just that some time ago fantofan had said that takara will release two variations of Skids, a mica blue edition close to the G1 character and a silver one, the 'traditional' colour of the car.

At that time HLJ had only "Skids" for pre-order with no mentionning of variations, which troubled me.

And today I saw that the silver one mentionned before is not a variation of BT 16 [like Blue Prowl etc] but the colour scheme for Blaster.

You are right about the no-remoulding, but the way they coloured that piece silver is a colour variation not seen on Sunstreaker or Alert. That's what threw me off :D

I guess the final product isnt ready yet so they just show the original figure, it's only for December, we have time ;)

She's holding Skids? What?

Seriously, I couldn't be happier that they're using the street paint for Blaster. That's $50 less for me! :D

So if I buy him, I'll have no contestants for a review? :p

You have a point though...that flat gray looks bad.

I read somewhere that she`d be a Lucky Draw prize.

Probably at Seibertron. ;)

Autobase Aichi has more pics, BTW.

No, I meant that there's only going to be two of the Toyotas and not three. This means... possibly... I can cram a Masterpiece trailer into the budget instead! :)

with the new pics of Autobase Aichi it looks like the grey Skids is not BT* version, as there is a picture of Lumina with a metallic grey Toyota :http://snakas.hp.infoseek.co.jp/event/img/050820_bt9.jpg
