First Looks at Dark of the Moon Deluxe Skids, Totally Confirms the Character
bwbm - 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

Just in from Licensing Expo in Las Vegas via comingsoon.net, we have our first piece of promotional material for the 2018 Transformers movie, which will focus on Bumblebee at some point before the main film series. Transformers Universe: Bumblebee as it is currently titled on the poster has been said to skew younger, and have a smaller robot cast. There was also the hint that the 1980's might be the target time period for the story. You can find the image that was on display at the expo mirrored below.
It is official, Michael Bay, the director with five Transformers and a slew of other blockbuster movies under his belt has been given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, today. According to the reporting from Malay Mail Online, who is being called the "$6 Billion Man". Mr Bay attended the ceremony today with his dog Rebel to leave his mark, adding his hands and feet impression to the avenue of Hollywood's greatest achievers. Read on for quotes from Bay on the event.
UPDATED with information on the Transformers Live Show! Sys-Con Media reports that Hasbro has partnered with DMG Entertainment to create a new Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality experience centered around Transformers. The first of these "digital simulation experience centers" will open in Shanghai this summer, with plans to expand across China over five years. No plans outside of China have yet been announced, but the project is said to be designed "with the global audience in mind." Keep reading for info!
After the recent trademarking of what's believed to be the Bumblebee Movie logo, Hasbro continues preparing for its 2018 cinematic outing with a new trademark reported by Transformers@TheMoon: Bee Vision. Really, what are the odds this isn't related to the Bumblebee Movie? With the trademark specifically calling out toy masks as a potential use, it looks like there'll be some type of roleplay-toy gimmick in next year's movie toys. Keep reading for the data!
The US Patent Office has received a registration for a new logo from Hasbro showing a stylized bee in gray. The logo is being trademarked for use in relation to "Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms" - the usual legal descriptor with USPTO for Transformers toys. So it looks like we've got the logo to go with next year's Bumblebee-themed Transformers side-story movie! Keep reading to see.
