|SKIDMARK was the kid that was held up by your mother as a shining example of everything that you were not. He was annoyingly polite, maddeningly well groomed and excruciatingly successful in his studies. There was a collective sigh of relief from his contemporaries when he received his first driver's license, and subsequently shattered all known records for the accumulation of speeding violations.|
"He keeps his locker and bay area squared away and spotless; it makes everyone else look bad by comparison. This could have been cause for resentment if he wasn't the fastest and most reliable recon driver around. The worst thing that his teammates can say about him is the best thing that a soldier can say about another soldier: "He does his job."
|Toy Notes: Item #6253. Character art, the commercial animation, and the figure in the commercial and the 1988 insert catalog all show a pale yellow helmet instead of the orange one released.
