Transformers Deluxe Autobot Skids

  • Because he is slightly less hyperactive than his brother MUDFLAP, AUTOBOT SKIDS has always thought of himself as the smart one
  • Team up with this faithful ally and get ready to take on DECEPTICON forces
  • In robot mode, check out this no-nonsense warrior’s moving armor panels
  • With a few twists and turns, change the robot figure to Beat mode to show off a fun vehicle that’s ready to flatten the competition
  • Detailed robot-to-vehicle figure features MECH ALIVE gearing for moving armor panels – and a punching fist in robot mode

Because he is slightly less hyperactive than his brother MUDFLAP, AUTOBOT SKIDS has always thought of himself as the smart one. He likes to point this out at every opportunity. While MUDFLAP zips around like a maniac, AUTOBOT SKIDS prefers to impress his superiors among the AUTOBOT high command by behaving in a way he thinks of as mature, which usually involves talking nonstop about anything that occurs to him.

    I wasn’t interested in the characters of Skids and Muddflap at first. I watched a review on both these toys online, and they seemed to have enough poseability and interesting transformations to pick up. The vehicle mode looks very nice. It’s a very nice painted green, while inner robot mode seems to be green plastic. Even that looks nice. Transforming him can be a little weird at first figuring out the right place to put everything. One thing I am noticing that Hasbro is doing more of is giving these figures tabs to help with placing all the parts correctily. Just know that you have to seperate the roof to fold the backpack correctly. It seems like it will break, but it’s solid. He can stand fairly well with the help of the folded car sides that make his bottom legs. Robot mode looks like a good mold. I like that they even painted his buck teeth. The enlarged, articulated punching hand is kind of cool. I haven’t noticed anything that would seem too fragile, so I think Skids is better suited for children than the other movie figures.

    To transform this into a robot, you have to force the plastic almost to the breaking point and its not even a good representation of a robot. Its even worse to get everything to line up precisely to turn it back to a car. If the transformers of the 80s had been this bad, kids would not have even bothered with them back then.

    To be honest, I’m a little bit shocked at all the reviews of people that can’t transform Skids even with instructions. Yes, I needed instructions my first couple times (I’m in college, FYI, not 10 years old), but after that I got it down pretty well.

    I will say that the clips to secure everything in the right position for car mode are less than stellar… to put it nicely. It definitely takes some patience to get all the cracks sealed so it can roll without feet sticking out. That said, conceptually it is one of my favorite transformers: It has a unique transformation that really makes use of the space provided, and I like the compactness of the robotmode. I also like the little things like folding in the windows or his chest that make it feel that little bit more complex and intricate without actually being essential or anything.

    Overall, I wish they’d design more transformers similar to Skids, so long as they actually clip everything into place properly. For now I’m happy keeping him in Robot mode sitting on my desk, but I don’t transform him as much as my other toys because car mode isn’t worth the effort anymore. It was good for $12 while it lasted.
