    I was watching "Masters & Students" today when something hit me: it's an awful shame that Skyquake's model was used only twice (at least thus far), but didn't the Prime Panel at BotCon say that they sometimes re-use models? Maybe (MAYBE) they could give Skyquake's body a new head and BAM! Easy character, easy retool for a toy!

    It's purely speculation, of course, but maybe a worthy discussion point?

    It's quite possible. Until I see evidence to the contrary, I'm going to assume such.

    My only guess is that he'll sound freaking awesome.

    In fact that's not even a guess, it's Tony Todd, the only way they can mess his voice up is by adding a chipmunk filter to it or something.

    I dunno, a Decepticon with a chipmunk filter would be pretty awesome.

    It's certainly a possibility, and I wouldn't have an issue with it, but at the same time I don't think that's what they'll do. I took the whole model reuse thing to be more about returning characters and seeing objects again (like the axe and fire extinguisher). We'll just have to wait and see.

    I kinda want a new design. Maybe a mix between Movie DW and Prime Skyquake. Though I do like SQ's character model.


    I kinda want him to have a lensehead....

    Wait... Skyquake had a gatling gun... If Dreadwing is a retool of Skyquake he'll have the gatling gun too. I wonder if it'll be illin' or not?

    I seriously, seriously, seriously doubt he's a Skyquake repaint. Skyquake has had two eps, one of which he was a zombie. If he got a whole new model I'm sure Dreadwing will.

    Plus they just said they won't put Skywarp or Thundercracker in the show because they would be too similar to Starscream, if we'll get a new, voiced villain character I doub't they would cheat for him Tailgate-style.

    I'm thinking he'll be a new model, but it probably won't be until season 2.

    Why do I get the feeling he'll be some general that Megatron calls in for his big plans during the finale. As for him using Quake's model I doubt it.

    Maybe. Tailgate was the same model as Cliffjumper was.

    I hope there will be some antagonism going on between him and Starscream like in the IDW movie comics.

    He was.

    The difference? Tailgate wasn't an actual character.
