The head of HA Skids is quite movie accurate. The colour scheme of HA Skids is similar to Deluxe Skids. I like the details of the body especially the front torso and legs.
Similar to HA Bumblebee, HA Skids has a missile launcher on his right arm. We can have "Mikaela" sits on either side of the robot's arms.
Despite the bulky backpack, the figure is still able to stand steadily on his own.
The overall joint articulation of the figure is good. I would be more happy if the figure wrists were in ball joints to have more posability of the hands. Now, Mikaela controls the gatling gun that originally hides behind Skids's head.
To fire the missile, we just press the grey button on the side of the launcher.
Not forgetting to mention we can make Skids's mouth move by pressing down the top part of his head.
This is the so-called "Arcee" in Robot Mode that comes with HA Skids.
I don't know why the figure named as Arcee. Only the body colour is similar to Deluxe Arcee but its body design looks like Deluxe Chromia.
To me, HA Skids is the best figure in Human Alliance Series. Having this set is simply a "bonus" as it comes with two additional figures - Mikaela and Arcee. You may view HA Skids in Chevy Beat Concept Mode here and transformation via Optibotimus video here.
