Really? How do you say? I mean I understand the u/f+1+2, 1+2 is kind of a bummer, but other than that it seems like we were all expecting a decrease in damage and stuff, but so far he's almost identical, no?

Not sure, but it seems harder (if not impossible) to connect f+1 after WS 2,1, d/b+2, d+2,3 with Slim Bob.

This might be kinda weird, but him being worse actually makes me wanna use him MORE.

Slim Bob def has better step for what that's worth, I haven't looked into his backdash yet though.

@MattyP: He definitely has worse range. I haven't compared damage for all his stuff but from what I've heard him and the other DLC clones doing less in those movelist videos was changed.

The damage is the same he has a better step game. Only a few moves have lost range. Due to the step improvement i think hes better

Yeah, damage appears to be the same. I'm really excited about the better SS, but I think he got nerfed range wise, and maybe frame data wise (at least on some moves)

you have to do 2 jab not f1 for slim bob. it hits all day.

uf1+2,1+2 W! db1,ff2 B! does alot of damage before you even do a wall combo! shouts out to Jordyce for that find. then 1+2,1+2 W! db2,ff2 B! does alot before a combo also! after his ff1+2 throw u get free b3 for 48pt. idk with his movement being better slim seems true. the only thing that any kind of miss is mabey his throw not launching but 48pt is very good.

I was actually able to mess around with slim bob at launch via a friends hacked 360. I used d+1 then ff+2 after u/f 1+2 1+2 on small characters like ling. on normal sizes and bigs you can d+1, then dash up and bound with b+41.

Slim bob's jab range is noticeably less than that of Bob's. Anyway, still having a blast using 2 bobs while having ws+3,3+4 available as a TA anytime.

(launch)
- d+2,3, 2, u/f+1+2,1~5, TA ws+3, 3+4, dash 1+2, 1+2

I think it's hilarious he's being compared to Bob, a probable top tier char and not being compared to the rest of the cast. Slim Bob is still silly, just like Bob is. He doesn't have retarded range like Bob, so what? He still has a moveset that can compete and beat ANY char in this game. You are all acting like he's low tier trash or something. Too funny

d/b+2, d+2,3 jab 2 f,f+2 will hit like STK stated -- i got it off the u/f+3 and ws+2,1 but i couldn't get it off a CH d/f+2 -- you can't have sloppy timing w/ slim -- with fat you can pretty much puke that combo out and it will work

I got some questions.

How high do you think is the diadvantage taking Slim Bob instead of the original?

I know 2 players who started or would start playing slim Bob but not "normal" Bob. Do you think the community likes slim Bob much more? maybe in tekken 7 he is slim and will stay it?
