Re: Transformers Prime Voyagers Skyquake Released in Philippines with Images


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

Looks great, definetily looking great to Dreadwing. But I wonder how the Japanese version will look. But I thought he won't be coming.

So the bio says that he will bering terror to the Bots? Ha! He died in ONE episode!!!!!!! So ironic, yet so cheap. Darn that BB!

Then he was revived using Dark Energon. He still roams the shadowzone.

Those extra paint apps really do make a huge difference when compared to Dreadwing. It's a pity the green plastic used is a little on the deep side. Maybe it was the cost of being buried for so long, but wasn't Skyquake's armour quite a bit duller in the show?

Yes, it was a pale green. Maybe it was aging or the tone of the desert they were in. Either way, let's pretend this toy is Skyquake right after he hopped out of the Well of All Sparks.

Thats a really nice shade of green that they molded the figure in.

I really liked Dreadwing, so If I see this guy on shelves I'll probably pick it up.
