Identity of the Chevy Beat in ROTF possibly revealed?

Posted by:
Sabrblade at 2008-10-09 5:50 pm has received some photos of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. Included with these photos are pics of Bumblebee, the Chevy Beat, and the Chevy Trax hanging around each other on the set. But the big news about these photos is that we get a view of the Beat and Trax's rear licence plates. While it is quite difficult to read the Trax's plate, one can make out the letter S, the letter K, the letter I (not L), the letter D, and another letter S on the Beat's plate. It's obvious whose name these letters spell.  Could he really, truely be him?!! It sure seems like it. You can view the page and the photos here.

I cant see the lisence plate very well but that is really cool! Not big on Skid but let's see if he will be even more impressive in Revenge of the Fallen.

Hope he's a big player... it would TOTALLY make up for his TWO nonspeaking Appearances in the TV show back in the day....

Skids as I recall, had 1 speaking line in all of Transformers. While Hoist was fixing him, he sits up and says, "Robotic insecticons?" (I always assumed that was him speaking, maybe I'm wrong?)

If you ask me its a very random character pick. But still cool. Can't wait to see how they do him. But I would very much like to know who that 0ther car next to him is.

I thought he said random human culture things during the maze in Triple Take-over too.

Well, there's been more than one Skids/Skid-Z in TF. There's G1 Skids, RiD Skid-Z, Armada Mini-Con Skid-Z and Galaxy Force Skids (A.K.A. Cybertron Clocker).

Skids, eh? Maybe now he'll (that is, the other versions) get a little more publicity and get out of obscurity.

hmm... who could the trax be? Are there any other chubby-van-looking formers out there?

Since the original skids hardly ever said anything, it is quite possible that this is just a new character with an old name. It's not like skids shared so much about himself, and god knows if tech specs are all that accurate
