Custom Tap-Out from ROTF Skids

...geez, it feels like it's been ages since I was last here. Well, at least I didn't return totally empty-handed...

And the undisputed winner of the "Best Thing Done With a ROTF Skids Figure" is now me, thanks to a little help from a shitty KO version of the same figure I found at a flea market...a shitty KO with a GREEN CLASSICS BUMBLEBEE HEAD. I held onto it for a long while until I finally managed to grab an original Skids off of eBay for a few bucks. One head-swap and a couple of Reprolabel stickers later, and ROTF Skids is now Neo-G1 Tap-Out, former Autobot wrestler and bodyguard to fellow obscure BotCon exclusive 'bee redeco Glyph.

This mold works pretty friggin' good for him, IMHO...I mean, that over-sized right arm is MADE for wicked lariats and elbow drops. I didn't bother shooting his vehicle mode because I didn't DO anything to it, so if you wanna see it, just look up ROTF Skids' figure.

...heh. The shot on the right is my favorite. "Just bring it, jabroni..."

Here he is next to my Classics Cliffjumper for comparison:

...y'know, Cliff, when the former pro wrestler turned professional bodyguard thinks you're a little uptight, you may wanna listen.
