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.

I don't buy movie toys, so that's ok with me.

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

i like this toy. i've never been one of the guys who hates skids and mudflap. i actually found them quite entertaining. and i always liked the figures. the black looks good, and somehow the BFG works for him.

I say his face looks like a Looney Tunes character after using one of ACME's products.

More Transformers Movies News
From the same round of leaks as the big Power of the Primes news comes a series of other miscellaneous leaks! First up seems to be a series of movie reissue toys which, given by the dates involved, seems to have been cancelled with the first wave to have occurred in April of this year. We also have some other movie-related figures on display as well as some budget-minded figures such as Cyber Battalion Sideswipe and Shockwave! Keep reading to see it all!
Deadline reports that actress Pamela Adlon - recent Emmy winner for her show Better Things, and voice of Bobby Hill on King Of The Hill among many others- is in talks to join the cast of Transformers Universe: Bumblebee. Adlon is presumed to be up for the role of the mother of the Hailee Steinfeld character, and hopefully we'll learn more about the film soon. Keep reading for an excerpt from the announcement.
Typically Transformers movies have had budgets around the 200 million dollar level, which includes The Last Knight with an estimated budget of $217 million - which according to Box Office Mojo, it still has not made back in its domestic ticket sales* as of July 20th. With this in mind, it's perhaps little surprise that the next movie up, the prequel focused on Bumblebee is being run much more lean. Screenrant has reported on the situation and given us a surprisingly low budget projection for the movie. Keep reading to find out what the film will be working with!


With production having just begun on next year's Bumblebee-focused movie, one would hope that assembling a cast has been on someone's mind. The Hollywood Reporter brings word of a number of young actors currently in talks for parts in the film, following behind leads Hailee Steinfeld and Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. No one involved has given any specifics yet towards the story, only sticking to the rundown of Lorenzo di Bonaventura that it'll be smaller, less robots, and more character development focused. Keep reading to find out more about the newest round of casting!
It is that time of year again when the annual Transformers Hall of Fame nominees are chosen by you to the Transformers fans. This year we have 12 brand new choices lined from all the movies in for the Favorite Robot Movie Character Poll. That's where you come in. We need your help in narrowing this down to the top three characters. Those will be sent onto Hasbro who will count the grand total of votes from many sites with the winner announced at HasCon 2017. Vote now through Saturday at midnight on the Poll after the jump.
