Age of Extinction
First Looks at Dark of the Moon Deluxe Skids, Totally Confirms the Character

By bwbm on Monday, January 17, 2011



Yesterday, we told you about the Transformers: Dark of the Moon Legends Skids figure, and today, we get a first look at the deluxe class toy of the character.

Like the Legends version, the Deluxe is very loyal to the real-life Chevrolet Spark.

The deluxe class figure of Skids from Dark of the Moon shows off a similar face, with some new color applications (Tuner Skids shown here)

These images also give us solid confirmation (as if the two identical vehicles with either green or orange racing stripes tolling around didn't give it away) that this character and figure will indeed be Skids.

The figure has one of the two faces that launched a thousand words filled with hatred from the Transfan community.

The figure's face seems like it will receive a color lift.

As we have seen so far with deluxe class figures for the Dark of the Moon toyline, this figure will also receive a rather large gun for the MechTech gimmick.

MechTech, following the Mech Alive gimmick for Revenge of the Fallen, will allow the combination of various weapons.

Take a look at the images in this ACToys thread and discuss in the forums!

My thoughts exactly. I have the original Deluxes, the Tuner versions (for my NEST strike teams), and the Human Alliance figs. Fun molds all around. Even the characters were somewhat entertaining, esp. in the background and the Devastator fight.

Even if they get killed off in the opening scene we'll still get 10 versions of each of them. Hell ROTF had 19 different Mudflap toys (link)

So every toy will now come with an oversized gun huh? I just can't stand that head sculpt. That is about the only thing I don't like about it. I doubt that they will get killed off right away as that just doesn't seem to be the way Mr. Bay does it. Someone who pulls the stings on these... read more
