No pics yet. Bes suggestion I've heard: Encore Skids in movie green with the Diaclone scooter accessory.

How completely unsurprising. So much so, in fact, that I'd say Skids is being reissued solely to pump out a neon green counterpart.

Because the original Skids has so much to do with what was in the movie, of course.

...

Do these things just get lost in translation to Japanese, or what?

So apparently this Skids displayed at Tokyo Toy Show sports an oddly-colored weapon, in gray and green instead of red and blue.

Which is presumably an accidential hint towards this exclusive Skids toy.

Screech?

From Saved by the Bell?

... bad joke, I know.

The idea of G1 Skids in movie green actualy works for me. Both are sub-compact 3 door cars. Makes good sense to me. Unlike the Green G1 Ratchet and black G1 Ironhide.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a red version of Skids pumped out as Mudflap.

You know what? You're right... they have a chance of being the new Bumblebee and Cliffjumper as far as repaints go.

So Skids is indeed a "movie"-colored redeco of G1 Skids... and "Screech" is a "Mudflap"-esque redeco of the Crosscut version of the mold.

Huh. Interesting. The redish-rust colored one looks okay. Kind of reminds me of the Diaclone version, actually. Err, umm, sort of. Minus the grey bits, and I'm not sure if the red one came with the variant head.

Could you say something along the lines of.. "Kali will win the lottery and pay of his mountain of debt and share some with his friend Chris." .....something of that nature?

I can't wait to read the bios... They got away with it with Ironhide due to it being a proper colour (you can't really argue with the Onebox being done in black what with it being released in black first), not so much with making Ratchet into a rescue vehicle that'd probably struggle to fit a hacksaw in the back. So, we thinking Skids being impressed with watching RotF and deciding to take on the scheme just to make his antiquated alt mode really stand out, or are we thinking a hilariously convoluted explaination involving Defcon's arsehole, Swindle when he turns up with the Protectobots in TRoOP and those crystals from "A Prime Problem"?

Question

So is there any reason they haven't just called the red one Mudflap?

Mudflaps should never be red. That sounds like a case for Anusol if ever I heard one...
