    :confused: 

    What do you mean by Thunder Brother? Is that what Dread and Quake are actually supposed to be called?

    Nonetheless I am glad Hasbro didn't cancel Skyquake like they did with DOTM Soundwave, Leadfoot and Que. Hopefully they made lots of Skyquake or he's in another wave next year?

    check out fakebuskers shapeways thread in the fan art section, he's made show accurate guns for both twins that can be purchased through shapeways, mind you they are a bit expensive but incredibly show accurate

    Yeah it will a Prime crime if guns very like the ones on Shapeways don't get made - the way they work is clever and heck you need it for recreating how Dreadwing bows out of the TV show.

    It maybe possible to get the guns to stay open by removing or unhooking the spring inside it.

    It looks like a nice repaint, and I look forward to owning this mould (again - because I'm a sucker), but am I the only one who is really turned off by the grey? It worked for Dreadwing (especially the Arms Micron version, which has a darker grey plastic), but Skyquake just looks..... bland. I think the darker grey plastic like the AM Dreadwing would have worked better.

    Sweet. Now, if I could actually find one. That would be even sweeter. My Dreadwing is feeling lonesome.

    Where did this rumor of him being canceled come from? This is the first time I've ever heard this rumor...

    I love this guy a lot more than dreadwing so this will be a major pick up for me!!

    Must... get... Skyquake! Hopefully he won't succumb to the same fate as Airachnid, retail-wise.

    It was just people freaking out over the late release of this figure, nothing more.

    I prefer Dreadwing overall but Skyquake ain't bad looking. The green on the toy gives me a headache though. I'll make sure to get this later on before Beast Hunters starts it's run.

    Will get the Arms Micron version of this when it's released along with Dreadwing which I don't have yet, hehe. :)

    ^ i like the pic! i have dreadwing and i took a wire from the inside of a bread twist-tie and wrapped it around where the gun is opened and trimmed it off to where it looks like part of the gun. then i used a peg from tfp rid cliffjumpers hammer and epoxyed it to the handle of dws gun, filed it, painted it low gloss black and it looks great under his arm to fire from the hip. didnt have to take anything apart, except to remove the battery.

    More pics and short review... :) 

    Bio
    Buried for ages, sealed in a state of low function that was not quite stasis lock, Skyquake waited for the day his lord Megatron might need him. He has the power to shake the very world to its foundation. The Autobots will learn to feel terror once again at the hands of Skyquake.

    Tech Specs:
    Strength - 9
    Intelligence - 7
    Speed - 8
    Endurance - 10
    Rank - 9
    Courage - 10
    Fireblast - 9
    Skill - 6

    His head is still rubber but has a little more detail than Dreadwing's head. I like the green and silver color color combo and his eyebrows had that orange feathered tip which Dreadwing didn't have (Dreadwing's should be gold to match his face).

    I also like his dark orange cockpit canopy with the silver trim. Dreadwing didn't have that so his whole canopy is yellow as seen below.

    As Skyquake and Dreadwing share the same mold, if you already have DW, you know what to expect in his transformation and poseability. The dark orange clear parts accent the gray / green color scheme on his body. SQ comes with his gatling gun (shatterwave blaster) and same sword that Dreadwing has. His gatling gun is still the same Mechtech gun as Dreadwing's with a different tip. Sadly, it also doesn't lock.

    Pic from the back with the white Decepticon Seeker logos. He still ships with the tail section on his butt so you can push it up on his back for a more streamlined look. To my surprise, his rubber tailfins are not deformed as the ones I got with Dreadwing. Dunno if it's a lucky pick for me or if the others are also that way.

    In conclusion, if you really like Dreadwing's mold and are a TF Prime show bot completist, you shouldn't really pass up the chance to get Skyquake. I was happy that our local Hasbro distributor listens also to the collectors and tries to get the figures that we want. Hopefully within the next week or so, the Dark Energon series will be on retail then after that FOC Grimlock. :D
