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!

More Age of Extinction News
Live-action Transformers composer Steve Jablonsky has posted an illuminating explanation to Facebook to help us understand why the Age of Extinction (and, as it turns out, Dark of the Moon) soundtracks have been removed from iTunes. In short, it has to do with music licensing fees that kick in at a certain threshold- and Paramount doesn't want to have to pay them. Keep reading for Jablonsky's full statement!
The official TakaraTomy PR Twitter account for Transformers has posted a new photo of Army Camo Hound, a recolor of the Generations Voyager mold that is part of a special box set with the Japanese home video release of Age of Extinction. It's not a huge difference from the mass release in either country, but it looks pretty nice and should be a nice bonus for those who want the Japanese Blu-Ray version of Transformers 4. Keep reading to see the photo!
Michael Bay's official account has posted a 10-minute outtake reel to Vimeo! Plenty of behind-the-scenes action to be seen, along with a couple of cameras falling victim to the master of explosions. Also notable: Kelsey Grammer covered in blood and ash, saying "I was this close!" Keep reading to see it for yourself!
A Japanese fan has reviewed Advanced Series Armor Knight Optimus Prime on YouTube! AD31 has been the focus of a lot of attention this week, and with good reason. A refinement of the Age of Extinction Generations Leader class Optimus Prime, Armor Knight/"Saikyou"/Ultimate Mode Optimus Prime sports retooled parts to reflect the final render for TF4 Prime, plus a highly detailed deco and a face-swapping gimmick to give both masked and unmasked looks in a single figure. Keep reading to see the video- hope you speak Japanese!
Autobase Aichi has just posted an album of ToysRUs Japan's exclusives for November, including Advanced Series EX Rollbar and the promotional Carnivac Mini-Con. Rollbar is a recolor of Generations Deluxe Skids in a color scheme similar to the Rollbar figure in the Breakout Battle Platinum Edition set. Carnivac is a recolor of Classics Mini-Con Overbite, and is a gift to those who spend at least three thousand Yen on Transformers in one visit to a Japanese TRU.
