And that's right, you'll be getting a whole lot of Skids and his twin brother Mudflap in the upcoming Transformers movie this summer, Dark Of The Moon. Images have surfaced on 4chan, revealing that Skids will be receiving a brand new figure in the Deluxe class. The young Autobot Chevrolet Beat is deco'd in black bright green and is well armed with a 'MechTech' gun. It is likely that Mudflap will also receive the same treatment with a brand new mold as well. Since the original source contains questionable content, the images can be viewed on Youtube. The images can also be found on ACToys.net.

I think they did fix his face, and I might actually get this figure. I admit it. I liked the twins. I rooted for the twins. When they went up against Devastator, I worried about the twins. I might complain about how they could have been better. I might complain about how the "twins" should have been based on Sideswipe (who was in the movie as a character perhaps more like his Armada incarnation than the G1 version I like) and Sunstreaker. I might comment about how their G1 personalities would have provided a more neutral and mature sense of humor that would have avoided the "culture" vs. "race" debate. But I actually would like a good version of the movie twins, and this might be the first mold from the new line that I personally find superior to the previous one, so maybe I won't be looking only to the new Legends/Legends+ line for DotM.

Mind you, I actually like the ROTF incarnations. So this needs to be a step up for me.

Also some users made a comment that the mechtech weapons might combine into something. This theory is looking more probable. Colouring on the plastic is the same with each weapon (sure it could be just test colours). Just have to wait for a reviewer to have near enough most of the figures to test that theory. If it is true I am a sucker for build a figure sets.

Yeah, they obviously lied about it.
This figure looks alright. It's decent. But I wouldn't buy it because I don't like the head or the colors, and I have no attachment to the character. If they remolded his head and painted him blue and red, maybe.
Still not digging these mechtech weapons, but I guess they gotta have some kind of gimmick.

And please, let's not get into the "racism" thing again okay? If you can't tell the difference between "race" and "culture" and don't really care, you're encouraging ignorance and racism yourself.
