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

Man, that was quick: TakaraTomy has published photos of their Movie The Best offerings for March 2018 as well! March will see releases of MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version, MB-18 Warhammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Keep reading for more details!
Via Twitter, TakaraTomy has released a teaser image showing off the Movie The Best releases we learned about earlier this week. Not just confirming the listings we saw, this answers some questions about the toys that will be put to use. As it turns out, a reasonable quantity of The Last Knight toys are figuring in to the 2018 lineup including Leader Megatron, Hound, Bumblebee, and the current Optimus mold in the Nemesis Prime role. You can check out the full size image previewing the whole assortment just below in the full post!
Having taken place this week, the Christmas Toy Fair expo in Japan has afforded us a first look at Movie The Best Jetfire, which was initially revealed to us through retailer listings just days ago. From what little coverage we could find of the Transformers displays, it didn't seem like very much new was on hand. A clear look at Jetfire was most notable among other movie products we've seen many times already. An MP Bumblebee was displayed as well to promote the upcoming reissue in February. Sadly none of the newly listed Legends toys seemed to be shown during this event. Keep reading to see the photos!
Celebrate 10 years of live action Transformers movies with the next 9 figures in the "Movie Best" lineup! The new figures include MB-12 Jazz, MB-13 Bonecrusher, MB-14 Megatron, MB-15 Lockdown, MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime (Revenge Ver.), MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Each fully transformable figure features premium deco and includes one or more accessories.
The new release of 2007's Leader Class movie Optimus Prime under the Transformers Tribute subline is now available for purchase in the US via Amazon. Like the Orion/Optimus Evolution 2 pack before it, this is apparently an Amazon exclusive. But, unlike the very unexpectedly reasonable price point of the 2 pack, Leader Optimus is currently listed at $79.99. But of course that does mean it qualifies for free shipping whether or not you're an Amazon Prime member. Is the very first movie Optimus with a fancy updated deco worth that to you? If so, hit the link in the full post below, and keep reading for a set of new stock photos of the toy.
