Is it just me, or is Skyquake a very festive shade of Green?

The only two things I don't really like about that Skyquake is the fact none of the red shows up on the front of his robot mode. He could have used some, on his wrists or tailfins. Next to that, he's too dark, both the orange and the green. The Cyberverse did that better.

Oh well...still tons cooler than the blue Dreadwing, in my opinion. Will pick this one up when I find it.

SWEET! I missed out on DW and was hoping that SQ would make it out.

He's a sexy figure.

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.
Nice review. The comparison really makes Dreadwing look...unfinished.
