For an easier comparison of the three Autobots in question:



Yes, I know the Skids cartoon head is blurry but it was the best I could find without excessive searching.

EDIT: Skids cartoon head fixed. Thanks, Nevermore.

When did that happen? i dont remmeber ever reading that in the BT story, speaking of which anyboady know where i can find it updated to the newest BT out?

losing windcharger to the clutches of the cons
also when did that happen??

and finally to add my opinion, i dont think they would make this guy perceptor, call it my own hunch. I kept thinking it was ironhide, but once you guys mentioned that it could be skids, it seems to make a whole lot more sense.

especally when the blue coloring (http://images.autobytel.com/cyber/186356/iF0523B_1.jpg) looks a whole lot better then the red (http://www.cfcl.com/~vlb/weblog/images/scionred.jpg) it also looks a whole lot more like skids in the alt mode then ironhide

Quote:
To get Swindle's body frame, the Decepticons took control of the BT-09 exostructure being developed for the Autobots at the Central City Institute of Technology, along with its project team, and forced the team to complete it. Therefore, a few of its function terminals, such as the force field emitter and jamming wave transmission panels, were left behind offline.
[...]
*The Japanese text uses the phrase "force barrier emitter," as the Japanese dub of the original series used the phrase "force barrier" to refer to Trailbreaker's special power (though there were times when they also used "force field"). *Central City is a fictional city from the two-part episode "Megatron's Master Plan."
Oh, and this. And this.

Case closed.

Opening your eyes and scrolling down the first page of the news forum might have given you this...

Click here and behold! Make sure you have a bucket or toilet nearby though once you do see it.

Thats just wrong. I see what you mean. That should never have made it past the concept stage, and all who designed it should me tarred and feathered.

It means that Wildrider/"Decepticharge" has a head sculpt that was originally intended to be Windcharger.

Just like Swindle has a Trailbreaker head.
And Dead End has a Sunstreaker head.

I would have preferred not posting that link until the auction had ended...
What exactly is the auction link supposed to contribute? We've seen pics already. The only one the auction link is currently helping is the seller.

Well, for one thing I've asked the guy if it says Ironhide on the toy...

I doubt it'll say anything at such an early stage.

Rookwise: Posting links is okay. I just don't like personally posting links to auctions for stolen prototypes that are still running.

This is not a board policy, though, so it's still up to your personal judgment. It's just that I prefer not posting that sort of eBay links.

Interestingly, there were five in that that auction. Are whole batches getting nicked, or is this waste salvage?

Info from the seller:
Quote:
hi, this is a test shot and there is no indication "ironhide" anywhere but on the actual product, the name is shown on the vehicle plate. as for now, it's confirmed as ironhide for its face in robot mode. thanks.
In other words, we're still guessing... though it's a reasonable guess.

Please be Skids and not Ironhide, please be Skids and not Ironhide. How can you NOT give Ironhide the giant pickup truck model?
