Autobots Skids & Mudflap Ice Cream Truck

My patience paid off for this Ice Cream Truck. Okay it's Skid and Mudflap but I still like to call this Ice Cream Truck!


Here are three reason why I get this toy figure after such a long wait. Reason number one, I just love the retro truck design although I never understand why on earth they appear like this in China in the movie.


Reason number two, this figure is 2 for the price of 1!


Reason number three, this figure was hot and often gone from retail before I can really get my hands on it. Now the movie fever subsided, they appear again (just as I have foreseen) and best they are on discount! Good things happen to those who wait. Yes it just like Ice cream! LOL


The whole truck look rather sweet with the pink and white coloring. You won't expect less from a Ice Cream truck right?


The tranformation really split the vehicle right down to the middle.


The front is Skid and the back is Mudflap.


Skid has a broad shoulders and a set of tiny leg. It's hard to get him to stand well as a robot.


Mudflap on the other hand is all balance.


It always puzzle me why Michael Bay wanted these two Autobot to look so stupid weird.


And the toy just purely follow the movie design...


Thankfully I am only interested on the vehicle design and color theme so that is good enough for me to go ahead to collect it. Some more did I mention it was on 20% discount?

This is quite nice...if I am not wrong they are selling the extra decals on the internet to make it more movie accurate.

When I was watching the movie, I got quite shock when the ice cream truck got split in to two. I thought it was dead, but it turns out becoming these two autobots :D

@moemoekyun
Yes I remember that but it was not found on the toy. Maybe that the decal what little plastic man talked about.

@h4mster
It's was a pleasant surprise but the robot mode make them look rather dumb looking.
