Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe Class Skids Review


TFTM Revenge of the Fallen Autobot Skids

"Skids is the brother to the Autobot Mudflap. Mudflap is very hyperactive, while Skids believes himself to be the smarter of the two and tries to come across as mature, but nevertheless appears unable to keep quiet."


Of all the ROTF releases, this is the one I am awaiting the most. Not only because of the cool neon green paintjob, but also the yoda esque cuteness of this bayformer character. And yes, he is not insect like. More of ewok like. He also has a twin brother named mudflap.

This pair of twins could give the lamborghini brothers and the TFA jets a run for their money in the popularity game


Skids has a lot of kibble in the back, and it is hard to flip back the windshield kibble as stated in the manual.

His height is also disappointing as it is just as tall as an tfa activator. Maybe him being 11'4 short has something to so with it. Yao Ming and Nate Robinson standing on top of each other would logically be taller than this autobot.


Skids has 2 special features, the punching action and the movable armor. The movable armor shows detail in the chest area and is kind of cool. He has a bigger right hand while his brother has a bigger left.

But that's just it, no weapon or other gadget available.


The punching feature allows the hands to extend out. But not much as say... tftm stockade.


The transformation is a bit complicated, all the inner swivel and joints are a bit stiff to move therefore it is hard to compress it back to. vehicle mode. The good thing here is that the paint is so durable that it stays. there even with the amount of handling, fiddling and scratching to be done while transforming it back.

Whats also disappointing is that the instruction manual does not show where to place the crotch in alt mode.


Skids transforms to a chevrolet beat concept car, a compact hatchback car like a toyota echo or a honda jazz. This is the main reason why it looks small in vehicle mode when paired with the other ROTF Deluxe.

Cool Neon Green color and mint green body color
Detailed head
Cool Hands
great decal job
will be better than the ice cream truck


Hard to transform
Extremely disappointing height
Lots of back kibble


Overall 6/10

Final verdict:
Get the robot replica or wait for the human alliance. At least that one has megan fox and arcee.
