    Actually we're getting a Deluxe and Cyberverse Ratchet, and the deluxe had surgical blades that clip onto/become his grill in vehicle mode. Yes, I'm sure it's not Wheeljack. It's in the Botcon panel coverage :)

    That may be true but from what I've seen he's the only character that hasn't had an actual figure on display or a concept picture.

    If the final Skyquake doesn't have a mini-gun then I hope he can hold some other mini-gun. I mean come on! That's the best weapon in the show so far!imo

    Yes, he has, it was at a panel at Botcon though so pictures were not allowed.

    Okay never mind. I just saw some pictures of all the other 2012 toys posted on this site and noticed he wasn't among them.

    Ok I have a question, We know We're getting a zombie remold of Cliffjumper (We've SEEN him) Which makes financial sense given he's a Deluxe. But would "TakaTomyBro" Bother doing a "Z" version of Skyquake since he's a Voyager and is more costly if He doesn't sell well?

    I think Hasbro said something about a Ratchet at Botcon, but I'm not sure.

    Yeah, I'm gonna have to boycott Skyquake if he doesn't come with his mini-gun. It's not like he has a compelling characterization that would make me want him regardless of armament.

    You could always make up a characterization. I personally picture him as being a more competent version of Lugnut.

    I really hope it does continue. I love the concept of the weapons and want to have them but very few of the DOTM toys interest me enough.

    Usually, I don't either, but I actually like this Megatron's alt mode. It fits in with the TF: Prime aesthetic pretty well. At least, I feel like it's less obtrusive than the cybertronian modes in the live-action movies.

    You could use the terrorcon as Tailgate. He was supposed to be pretty banged up after being captured by Airachnid's goons.

    While I do want Skyquake to have his Gatling gun, I won't be disappointed if he doesn't get one. Alternatives exist:
