From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

The name or term Skids refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Skids (disambiguation).
Skids is an Autobot from the live-action movie continuity family.
Green Spongebob from Cybertron with a gold buck tooth. Nose sold seperately.

Skids is one of the Twins. Skids claims he's smarter than his brother Mudflap and seems to believe he's more mature, though in claiming so, he has a tendency to blabber on and on and on... He has an oversized right arm and a oversized right eye. He also has a tendency for starting fights with his brother. Both he and Mudflap started out disguised as an ice cream truck, both merged together as one half of the truck, Skids as the front, and Mudflap as the back.

Any bad robot out there better get ready for an ass-whuppin'.

IDW Transformers (2007) comics continuity

Skids used to spar with his fellow Autobot Camshaft. He wasn't very good at it, but he was still better than Payload- or Dreadwing-type drones. The Reign of Starscream #3

Revenge of the Fallen film

Voice Actor: Tom Kenny

Skids, who originally transforms into the front half of an ice cream truck, fails to capture Sideways in Shanghai, China. When he and Mudflap return to the N.E.S.T. base on Diego Garcia, they scan two Chevrolet concept cars for their new modes. Skids takes the green one after knocking Mudflap off it; Mudflap ends up taking the form of the red one.

They and Bumblebee go to rescue Sam Witwicky from Megatron and Starscream. Mudflap and Skids then accompany Wheelie, Sam Witwicky and friends and in their search for the ancient Seeker Jetfire and is teleported with them to Egypt through Jetfire's space bridge. He and Mudflap also get extremly annoyed by Leo, wanting to kill him and refering to him as a pussy and his hair growing like a chia-pet.

Finding themselves at a dead end, Skids's brawl with Mudflap unintentionally causes them to find the Tomb of the Primes before Bumblebee tosses them out causing Skids to comment how rude it was. While Mudflap starts to question Sam's leadership of the group, Skids defends him.

DULL SURPRISE!

The twins then accompany Seymour Simmons and Leo Spitz into devising a plan to destroy the Solar Harvester. They encounter Devastator, in which Mudflap is sucked in by Devastator's vortex grinder with Skids devastated. Proclaiming that he "got so ate". When Mudflap breaks out of Devastator, he and Mudflap whale on the giant before Mudflap accidently shoots Skids in the face, knocking his gold tooth off his face Skids and Mudflap aren't seen after that, but presumably survive as Devestator ignors them, climbs the pyramid and is destroyed by a railgun strike ordered by Simmons.

Toys

He didn't get hit by the ugly stick, he had gotten lost in the ugly FOREST.
  • Skids (Deluxe, 2009)
Skids transforms into a neon-green Chevy Beat. Like the movie, he has a deformed right arm with an oversized right eye, as Mudflap has an oversized left arm and eye. The oversized arm has a punching gimmick. His mech-alive gimmick is activated when you push the Chevy logo in robot mode. This will make his chest armor move and bob his head up and down. One of the more annoyingly difficult Deluxe figures to transform...along with his brother.
  • Missle Blast Skids (Fast Action Battlers, 2009)
  • Autobot Skids and Mudflap (Deluxe, 2009)
Skids, along with his twin brother Mudflap, combines into a pink and white ice cream truck. Skid's half is about the size of a scout class, and Mudflap is slightly larger but, forming a Deluxe-sized vehicle, are considered as part of that class. Skids turns into the front half of the truck. For obvious reasons, the toy does not bear the phrase "Decepticons, suck my popsicle!"
  • Skids w/ Mikaela (Human Alliance, 2009)

This Voyager sized version of Skids comes with an Arcee figure which oddly enough looks more like Chromia. This new version has a more detailed transformation than the Deluxe version. He sticks with the head-gimmick of the Deluxe toy; Pressing a button on his head causes his mouth to look as if he's talking. He comes with a Mikaela Banes action figure, which, like the other two Human Alliance humans, is under-scaled to the toy that she is paired with.


Trivia

  • He has a gold tooth with an Autobot symbol on it.
  • Skids tries to act like a ninja, and even says "gotta blend in like a ninja" in the movie.
  • He bears the face of a rat, just like Rattrap, apparently, his voice actor also voices somebody who also bears the rat's face.
  • Along with Mudflap; has ignited a controversy, involving allegations of racist stereotyping. However, the voice actors had said that they were trying to invoke a pair of posers. More accurately, wiggers.
  • He and Mudflap don't seem to be at all devastated by Optimus Prime's death. Their biggest concern appears to be about what to do with the little pussy.
  • His bucktooth resembles Mater's from "Cars", (GIT-R-DONE!) And a certain yellow character that has the same voice actor!
    • Skids doesn't have the same laugh though (Thank God).
  • If you look closely at his face, there are Cybertronian symbols engraved at his right ear and gold tooth! There's also an Autobot symbol on his tooth shown on the Ice Cream Truck Packaging.
  • Interestingly, his head resembles the top half of the Autobot logo, while Mudflap's resembles the bottom half.
  • This version of Skids had more screentime than his namesake did.
