According to Transformers Live Blog, the third “Transformers” movie is now filming in downtown Los Angeles and will bring the Autobot Twins (Skids and Mudflap) that stirred up a bit of controversy because of their racist characteristics.
Update 1 – Director Michael Bay says that Skids and Mudflap, which caused some controversy for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, will not be back for next summer’s Transformers 3. Bay posted a simple message on his forums stating that “The Twins are not back in T3.” In related news, actress/comedienne Kym Whitley posted on Twitter yesterday that she’s part of the cast. “Working on Transformers 3 today, a little nervous…always when starting a new project. I have said the Lords prayer 12 times,” she said.
Update 2 –
Million Publishing has updated their website concerning the release of Transformers Generations Volume 3, with Skids and Screech. The book and the figures are on schedule for the release date in January. They will start shipping a week from now on January 18.
These figures is a Million Publishing ‘exclusives’ and a direct redeco from G1 blue Skids. The duo’s current colors are a direct homage of Revenge of The Fallen’s Skids and Mudflap.
Expect the figures to come into the hand of sponsors BBTS and TFSource before the end of January, and possibly into your collection in the near future.
Skids has been featured in Revenge of The Fallen and it’s about time that he is reincarnated again, in a G1 Encore form. Thanks to higekumatoytoy toy blog who has posted images of the Tomy Takara Encore #18 Skids Transformers action figure.
The post shows us the Encore reissue of the Transformers Generation 1 Skids mold with multiple angles in the box.
In robot mode and in alternate vehicle modes. The figure is also compared with the commeorative series reissue with clear windshield instead of blue tinted.
Over all the figure looks better than ever. With the decline in G1 collectibles, the drop in prices and demand should make this an easy score for any serious fan.
This is a serious must-get if you are a serious G1’er
