So, which figure do you prefer? Deluxe Mudflap or Deluxe Skids?

They both are fairly similar gremlin like compacts, although the transformations do differ slightly. I personally far prefer the Chevy Trax alt mode to the Beat - it's a nifty cross between a 4x4 and a compact city car (my ideal car! shame it's not going to be produced...). But the Beat is more traditional, and curvy.

The robot modes also differ - Mudflap is wider, and looks like a powerhouse, while Skids seems slighter, although the robot mode is more bulky. Both have kibble issues - Mudflap stores half a car on his back, while Skids stores kibble on his legs and arms that does actually interefere with poseability. Also, oddly, of the two, it's Skids who is back-heavy. Skids has benefited from better paint apps, perhaps... But I prefer Mudflap's colour - it's different, and not so in-your-face.

They are closely matched - cast your vote!

I like Skids more because Mudflap broke. :|

I like Skids more. He has a better (albeit dopey) face than Mudflap IMO. 'Sides, I only have Skids.
