    After watching Loose Cannons Dreadwing is on my way to becoming an excellent villain. It also made me wonder if Hasbro should maybe hold off on Skyquake for now and maybe release Dreadwing first. What do you guys think?

    Best release Skyquake soon before people start to forget him. Dreadwing can come a bit later if he's supposed to be sticking around.

    I've been wondering if they labeled that slide "Skyquake" just to keep Dreadwing a secret, as it makes much more sense to me to release the character that (apparently) has a much bigger part. I'll take them both, in any order. I really like that jet mode.

    Don't really care, both are most likely going to come out in the end. I don't mind which one I get first.

    OR, Here's an idea. RELEASE BOTH! I'm a marketing genius.

    I want Skyquake first. But they will probably release the Dreadwing deco first to coincide with his story arc.

    Nah, releasing the same toy several times with different colors is something Hasbro would never do.

    Cliffjumper died minutes into the first episode.

    Wheeljack has been in two episodes so far, and much of his screen time in the first one was actually Makeshift.

    Don't see why they would call a toy "Skyquake" if they weren't making a Skyquake.

    I was just going to ask that, I would prefer Dreadwing, but it will probably be both to come.

    knowing "Hasblo" Dreadwing will be first, and any Skyquakes will be store exclusive zombie! Probably the only way we'll ever see a Zombie Cliff too!

    Wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if that was the case. I'm pretty sure both color schemes will be released eventually in any case.

    If there's one thing Hasbro loves, it's repaints. They'll both come out, and I'll get both. 'Nuff said.

    Animated was the first series that really started to put out toys of one-off characters. Glad to see the tradition continuing. Unless you wanna go back to writing petitions and whining on the internetz because Hasbro missed a bot.

    Oh, I know! Maybe they can make Mirage a one-off and then not release him. But eh, who cares? We might see 4 minutes of him tops. Who'd be interested in that?

    Given that they are doing pretty well with TFP line so far and have FOC Combiner coming might wanna ease off on the Hasblo for the time being.

    They've only really committed one foul on TFP line and that's Legion Class Breakdown instead of Commander Class - a small gripe.

    Dreadwing should be first, he's going to be a more established character voiced by a recognized actor. Skyquake will most likely see a zombie and non-zombie version.

    Given the choice between a store exclusive and not having the figure at all, which is the better state of affairs?

    I think we'll see Dreadwing colours first. That said, I'll take both quite happily. From the slide the mold looked fantastic.

    If Hasbro doesn't release Skyquake, expect Takara-Tomy to release him.

    In fact, I'd expect Takara-Tomy to do Skyquake first, and Hasbro to do Dreadwing first.
