This time, it shows the upcoming Masterpiece Skids, alongside a previously unknown redeco of the figure!
The red figure seems to be reference to a colour scheme that the toy, that would become Skids, had in one of his Diaclone releases.
Sabrblade points out that the word "Reboost" appears a few times in the accompanying text, but it's unknown a this junction if that is the name that will be given to this release.
What do you think of this new reveal? Looking forward to seeing Skids on your shelf?

Just what I was thinking. But his silver repaint (crosscut) but the e-hobby g1 and generations version had this headsculpt. just the colors that make it seem like Prime

I also don't see any logo (except Honda) on "Reboost"....I wonder if she/he will possibly be branded a Decepticon?

I'm pretty sure the Marvel comics did back in the day.Bounti76 wrote:I'll pick him up regardless, but shouldn't Skids' thighs be silver? None of his toys nor any media has him with completely blue legs like this.

Mudflap has been homaged with a G1 Skids redeco (technically the Crosscut version of the mold) (https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Screech_(Generations)), but that deco was distinct from the Diaclone one being homaged here. That being said, Mudflap could be a viable name for the upcoming figure, as I don't think it's been done as a TF before. Although the vehicle mode wouldn't have any mudflaps. Not that that's stopped the name being used in the past.

No way, Armada deserves its own original molds, not being an afterthought of G1-centric molds all the time. Plus, Red Alert would at least require a remolded hand/arm, and a light bar. But honestly I wouldn't be happy with it unless it also had the gun, a mini-con, and chest weapon too.

The Marvel comics also made him a Minivan rather than a subcompact car, which this toy is. Eh.

And while Skids is certainly a value at that price while including his two guns, don't wright off Reboost and his enticing pack of accessories including three weapons, a clear holomatter driver and a "Component X" Honda Motocompo compact scooter that can fit in the back of his Honda City alt mode just like the original Diaclone! If you didn't care about Reboost before this attention to detail might change your mind.
Will you be buying either or both of the latest MPs to hit Japan or is this not enough to get you back into the MP game? Let us know in the Energon Pub Forums!

I'm conflicted. Cash and space allow only for on of those MP. Reboost have lot of stuff and especially that scooter. Skids is Skids and will go well along the Alternator and the original G1.

Doesn't look like it'll be any more complex than any other car, especially the pre-Sunstreaker molds. Looks to be on-par with the Datsuns and I think that was the goal.
