Skids! He’s better than you might think.
Sure, being shades of my favorite color helps (like Acid Storm, for instance), and his pilsbury dough-bot action feature is definitely a plus, but I was wary of all that kibble and how it would affect his articulation.
But fear not, dear readers, because Skids is thoroughly posable and the kibble is integrated into the look. The transformation is complex without being frustrating, fits together snugly in both molds, and is different from what we’ve seen so far.
But there are some things you should know about Skids…
First, he’s got pretty good balance!
In the last post, Skids was about to Falcon Punch Bumblebee. Here’s a shot of his stance…
Next, Skids has an evil, grumpy looking frog face on the back of his alt mode. That leads to some interesting positions when you consider where the kibble ends up.
Next, and perhaps most frightening of all… Skids may in fact be a time traveling beverageformer, evolved from a time when Koolnet gained sentience and took over the summer of the future.

Do you see the face? It wants to quench you!
Whether Dispensor the dewbot is on our side or not remains to be seen. And though this may just be a coincidence, collectors are still advised to keep Skids away from brick walls and thirsty children.
